Building the typeface

The typeface was built from the 4 letters of the word "nixon" from an older version of the Nixon brand logo. While building it, the most important thing was to analyze and abstract the main and particular traits of the specimen, create some basic rules from the sample, and transform them into basic modules. These would be used to ensemble different letters and characters to polish or embelish every one of these characters later on.
