Break is a modern font family contains five weights from Bold to ExtraLight, Uppercase, Lowercase, Numerics and symbols, could be use in variety of projects. Break is Rajesh Rajput’s very first display typeface. He always wanted to design one and knew that designing a typeface is a very painful job. Break is aligned for fashion and sports industry.
Break is my very first display typeface and I always wanted to design one. I always knew that designing a typeface is a very painful job you should know about each and every convention designers follow when they design typeface. And mostly we need new typefaces when we work on fashion industry projects. Break is more aligned to fashion and sports industry it may not be the right choice for using corporate projects.
I see many beautiful typefaces daily and I have used some of them in my projects. I just wanted to do something aligning with neon lighting but with a twist. I designed the “B” letter first without the break then I left it for some time, but when I came back I just had this idea of breaking the letters instead of giving them their complete shape. Though it took my several days to correct each and every letter because when you break a letter it should not lose its identity.
For this project, there is no such inspiration. I would say that neon lighting was my inspiration rather than any specific typeface. I just want do something different with a twist every time. I believe that we should follow the conventions most of the time, but there is no harm breaking them sometimes.
I just want do something different with a twist every time. I believe that we should follow the conventions most of the time but there is no harm breaking them sometimes. My style is going into the detail. I never lose a pixel in my design. I always try to put as much detail as I can but in very settle manner. I do experiment with type and colors all the time. Many artists inspired me but there is one man who changed my perception about design is my mentor Shankar Durai.
Every designer in our field has to have their own personal preference some of us like working on typography projects and other might want to work on digital projects. Whatever types of work you want to do, you need to prove yourself that you are worthy for it. As a designer, I always take personal initiatives to showcase my capability in that domain. So my only advice is don’t rely on client projects if you want to do something do it for yourself.
