Typography Mania is a weekly post series that comes around once a week with the best of Typography design submitted by our users at typography-mania.com, from type videos to images everything is full of great design and typography inspiration.
Andrew Footit recently had the privilege to work with ESPN The Magazine on their NEXT Feature. The project included a typographic Intro Illustration a flat logotype of the Intro type and some custom letters which later turned into a font.
The feature is about up coming and young star athletes, the next stars of their specific sports. The intro piece needed to have a futuristic feel to it so we used 3D type with LED styled lighting inner strips.
The sports featured included Football, Baseball, Hockey and Basketball. I used line illustrations from each of the sports respective playing field/court to surround the type.
The custom font took its styling form the intro type, keeping the inline and geometric angles to tie the feature together nicely. The font is a case alternative font allowing the Inline version or the solid version to be used by lower case or uppercase.
