Back in early January this year I have been taking some photos of a sign on the back of the NG Church in Mossel Baai, South Africa. All the letters have been worn off by the sun, wind and the salty air and I was fascinated by seeing how regular this erosion had happened. I immediately thought I would turn these worn off letters into a font… someday.
In the end it took me quite a number of spare evenings to turn this into a layered Photoshop-based font as the text on the sign did not contain all characters. So I had to study how the different letters did react to the conditions to be able to replicate this behaviour when creating the missing characters… Let´s see, I might use them for my South Africa photo book.
