I have been using this personal symbol online since 2002, first as my Typophile.com avatar. The idea came while doodling with a chisel-tip marker, when certain fractal aspects caught my eye. It was originally done on a soft paper tissue, I wish I still had that napkin, or a picture of it. The mark was digitized as bitmap, to preserve those sort of “fractal coasts” or contours. I still have to develop 25 more characters on this concept.
Material: Chisel-tip marker, Photoshop, Streamline, Fontlab.
