So I woke up at 5am as I love to do and decided to do something epic. I had papers to fill and two personal projects to work on. So I decided to draw the digits for Betali Typeface. The process of creation is also widely presented on my Instagram.
As you can see on the picture, one better doesn’t draw numbers on the sunrise or when the Sun is down as long as digits designed on the sunset are pretty awesome. Good to know but that didn’t help me to get closer to finishing the font. I was going to post this funny dependency of Sun position and digits design when that strange curvy 8 fell into my eye. The reason it did was me interest in LEXON Script Clock two days ago. I like how the designers made those segmented numbers.
After tweaking a bit I had a hero to use and create digits from. So I quickly created the numbers and tested if they are awesome enough. They are. Okay, now I have a set of symbols in case I want to create a segmented clock. Not bad for the Sunday morning I was going to spend playing retro games like Tetris or Unreal Tournament.
There are things to improve, like readability. What if I start with WATCH app? That will lead me to three personal projects instead of two!
