Splinter: Prototype "A"
From my sketched out type, I decided that in wanting to create a typeface that would be reflective of war it would need to be real. Something you can actually walk up to and see for yourself, in person, what the type really looks like. So I created a model. Many have seen this and some of the many comments I’ve received have said it looks like a building or a bridge of some sort. Others actually took this to be either something out of Transformers or Sauron’s tower or even his helmet- which I thought was pretty cool! But no, this is the first prototype for A. It stands close to 23 inches high and is constructed out of triangular pieces of card.
