newt

Developmental Commentary

A newts body is a very smooth moist surface. Compared to the rest of it’s body, it’s legs are tiny. I chose to make the letters of this type very robust. They are mostly slick round letters with small rounded cuts. Having had a newt as a child I know they have an undying appetite and will consume until they’re very overweight. I basically just made this a very gelled overweight type treatment with chubby little appendages. Originally I had added little reflective highlights, but in the end I felt that they took away from the overall legibility without adding much aesthetically.
