Ol Chiki goes public





































A recent visit to Jharkhand amazed me when I saw "Ol chiki" written on the sign boards of villages outside Jamshedpur. Looking at the layout and position of Ol Chiki, I have a bit of doubt whether it was officially written or some Santhali activists wrote it. Either way it's a great beginning for people outside the tribal community to see the script in public places.

History of Visual Communication

Minor project on visual communication at National Institute of design in 2009. This project aims to study the history of Visual Communication in the Western context and present it in the form of a narrative. I will be looking at visual representation and style in the two-dimensional medium and how it has changed over the centuries. The timeline based narrative will be presented through a piece of motion graphics. Key pieces of art and design will be picked up to represent a certain art style/movement to help the viewer understand the change over the centuries.

Typedesign set

It's been quite sometime that I posted any information about my project.
Currently I am finishing my type design and will start the documentation in a week or so. Here is the final refined set that I have made in Illustrator.

found this article on basic type design

I am done with my character set for the typeface and now doing the refinement. While looking for some information on inktraps, I found this article on basic type design ... Unfortunately it's not very detailed ... but still proved to be informative in terms of size and inktrap relation.

figuring out fontlab

I am trying to give sometime figuring out fontlab so that later things don't get complicated. Found some tutorials in vimeo so thought would post them.  I have downloaded 1 month trial version with tutorials,  Fontlab seems a bit difficult... if anyone knows of related tutorials please post a link.
