Duplicating the letter so that when I use the first one as a mask I can put the second letter over the top, to get a nice thick outline.
Putting the second 'B' shape over the 'Masked' image gives it an outline, and make it look like a letter form rather than lots of shapes.
Using the same process I produced the rest of the alphabet, also decided to do some glyphs such as numbers and punctuation. I did this so that I could get a better idea of what it would look like if it were to be produced as a full font.
With this illustrator brief I could have done more with experimenting with lower case letters, and experimented more with different colours. Although I am really impressed with the way it has printed out, it looks to be at a professional standard, and quality paper. Although I developed this typeface to work as black and white, I think that it would demonstrate 'pop' more if it was in a variance of colours, although using more than one colour makes it look tacky, therefore I think that black and white works the best.
Looking back at this brief, I have learnt a lot about illustrator therefore has helped me a lot. I have also learnt many shortcuts which make the process quicker, which meant that I could test out some different things. I think that my typeface worked well digitally, as it gives it a cleaner finish.
