The task was to create an alphabet (typeface) based upon the chosen location. When I was in Angel Islington I noticed there were a lot of coal holes that would have been used many years ago. The coal hole covers, however, I found very interesting. Depending on the company, the covers had different patterns on them. This typeface idea developed from these patterns which I had created rubbings of when I was in the area. I added leaves to the letters because in my research I had discovered that way back, Islington was just a village that had a lot of ‘green’ areas. I produced this spec sheet in Adobe Illustrator.
