Engineer by DawnPaladin Engineer by DawnPaladin
Part of the fun of art school is getting to design your own font. For each letter of Engineer, I asked myself: "If this character was a hundred feet tall and made of iron, would it be able to support itself?" Hence all the structural reinforcements.

Quote is from "Meet the Engineer": [link]

First of all, I'd like to say that this font is a witty one. It isn't too lavish, and its structure is well placed. The problem? It's hard to see all the structural support. (Adding more letters with suppport might help, but it'll be easy to overdo.)

Second, I rated down the originality for one reason-it was prompted. Otherwise you displayed the state of being an engineer rather well.

Third, you picked a good quote to display your font. It adds to impact, as does your slogan. Your slogan would have been more effective in the font your created.

Fourth, all the backup is well done. The grid, the writing utensils, compass, and ruler make the whole thing more scientific and efficient.

Fifth, as a font, it would be quite useful-it's easy to read, but has its own touches. I hope you generate enough support for it to be a formal font.

Right now it's just a collection of vectors in Illustrator; I haven't converted it into a font file yet. I can look into doing that if there's enough interest.
