The title of my Typography project is ‘Kalamkari Letter Design’. I have influenced the title of this subject from the original Indian art form named as “Kalamkari Art”. Here I have tried to go beyond the technical necessities of typography and tried highlighting it as a true art form. It involves documenting India’s legacy with type. Visual cues from instances of Indian culture are assimilated in letters. I have short listed 26 stories as per each alphabet which would be perfect for the execution part.
