Tribal Type was derived from a sketch I had made a few years before this project started. I had always felt that finishing the type in Illustrator wasn’t quite right and it needed something more, this was before I discovered an understanding of 3D software.

After I was done with my MA I decided to continue this project and try something new, create type in a 3D setting. After some extra sketching by taking the letters apart and putting them together again as separate elements I had finally found a place for where this tribal type would sit. Below is a gallery of all 26 Uppercase Letters with different angles.
