In an effort to experiment with Japanese type, after having established familiarity with traditional forms of Hiragana and Katakana, I was inspired to create a stylized Hiragana and Katakana type set, dubbed SPHERE. Each set was hand drawn and is spherical in nature. The type can be easily applied to poster, magazine and collateral design. The function of this typeface is as a display face and includes all 46-48 base characters. Below are some examples of the type and miscellaneous design.
