MINISTRY

A typeface for the ministries of the world.


I wanted to design a typeface since I was 13 years old when I saw the serif typefaces in school textbooks change from book to book. It always blew my mind that someone had to draw each letter (of course, now I call them glyphs) by hand.

After designing Chrysler in college while learning Fontlab, I really wanted to design a typeface in the traditional sense. A typeface that doesn’t depend too much on grids, or is too geometric so that it becomes easier to design. That’s how Ministry was born.

It is still very unpolished, and I want to work on it more and perfect it. I enjoyed the discipline that it takes to create a typeface.

like with any typeface, it was required that keep checking how the spacing and the glyphs worked with each other when typed out

Just for fun I designed an extra wide version where some of the glyphs were extra wide. Just for fun.

Still a work in progress. I plan to design a gurumukhi version of the typeface.
