letterformula: typeforce reject

Well, I may not have been selected for Typeforce but I’m still working on what I would’ve done for the exhibit. The concept, briefly, is to create letterforms emerging from vertical lines. There was more to the original idea that had to do with letter frequency in the English language, but it isn’t so significant in relation to these letterforms.

Below are a a couple of shots of the work in progress in Illustrator, a semi-finalized alphabet ( I know some letters are missing), and some preparatory sketches.
