CAKE FOR BREAKFAST TYPEFACE
'Cake For Breakfast' is all about celebrating the small things, treating
yourself and irony. Creating a typeface? Piece of cake. (Not really).
Completely hand drawn, in a casual caps brush style and designed with
the intention to be used as a display face. For my first attempt at a
typeface I looked to myself for inspiration. What would I want to use?
I certainly love the idea of having cake for breakfast without a second
thought - I hope this inspires you to indulge too.
'Cake For Breakfast' was created during my time studying at
Old School New School. More on my experience at the school is

OLD SCHOOL NEW SCHOOL
Throughout April and May of 2016 I attended Abbotsford's Old School New School to complete the intensive 'Type as Design & Culture' Program. This brilliant short course gave huge insight into the history of Typography, techniques in Calligraphy, Brush Script, Blackletter, Sign-writing, Custom Hand-drawn Lettering and digital skills in Vectoring and Type Design. With a range of challenging briefs I was able to push myself to create confident, sound typographic work like never before.
