When I moved my focus from drawing and painting to graphic design, I fell in love with Typography. I started paying more attention to every typeface I could see speeding past my car window and brandishing the covers of shiny magazines.
Nailig started with the basics: geometry. I wanted it to feel very modern yet somehow natural, so I played around with different shapes, keeping it as simple as possible. Below is an image showing the evolution of the first letters created for Nailig - the "e" and the "a", which are quintessential to the core of the font.
The Final Product
Nailig exudes clean corners and buttery-smooth turns. All at once, an exquisite title font.
