Something that helps me concentrate while listening to talks is to draw. For some this would be a distraction but for me, it works. President Monson’s talk is my favorite so far.
So today while listening to Conference I worked on the uppercase letters of the Heber J. Grant font I’ve been working on. And I’ve now finished a draft of the full alphabet in lower and uppercase. To test it out, I tried it on the Family proclamation, and it looks beautiful. Such a joy to see this materialize one letter at a time!
Many of the uppercase letters I didn’t have a sample of, so I had to imagine how President Grant would have drawn them. So this endeavor has been a collaboration between us. I hope he approves of my interpretation. I doubt that decades ago when he wrote this Christmas letter to friends and family that someone would have turned it into a font (if he did he would have given me more of the alphabet!). Here’s the letter that I used to make the font:
And here’s a bit of the Proclamation using the Grant typeface:
Happy General Conference weekend everyone!
Leave a comment of what you’d use the typeface for, and I’ll draw a winner who will have their name (or whoever’s name you like) written in Grant. 🙂 Winner will be shown next Tuesday.
