Mie

At what point does readable type become abstract art? What is the boundary between functional and experimental? I believe the only way to find the answer is keep pursuing experimental work. This is one of my personal projects. While taking classical Roman Capital letter form proportions into consideration and retaining some brush/penstroke characteristics, my design was experimental in nature. Invented a new alphabet design that is communicative and legible while being abstract and inventive. Mie means a beautiful picture in Japanese.
