This one has kind of a goth metal vibe to it.
I traced a few of the letters in Illustrator, then brought them into Glyphs, and used those pieces to construct other letters.
As it started coming together, I noticed the L connecting to the other letters in some interesting ways. Continued it with the E and Z. The Z is badass, innit?
This one’s coming along, but could probably use more refinement. The H looks like Hammer Pants.
Ran out of time for numbers & lowercase, so I copied the uppercase into the lower and shrunk it a bit, for a small caps feel.
