Modular Typeface: Pain
Commissioned by a jewelry maker who cuts various types of silver products or even raw silver into pieces and uses this collection of parts to build new silver jewelry.

The goal is to make a modular, "Frankenstein" typeface that has the sharp harshness of a fraktur blackletter, but does not refer to antiquity. Also, while being made of various pieces it should still be unified and should function as a display face and a text face. I'm building this by sketching letters first, then constructing them in FontLab. The triangular wedges form a set and each letter is composed from a set of pieces.
