Based off of the transitional typeface Encorpada, I created my own typeface called “Fanciful.” This typeface contains similar characteristics to a transitional typeface – the contrast of extreme thick and thin lines. However, I incorporated my own embellishments to juxtapose the thick and thin lines of the typeface, and to create a unique showcase typeface. Over the course of a semester, I created my typeface based off of Encorpada, but altering thicknesses, endpoints and curves with the addition of my own swirling embellishments.
