I was browsing youtube and I’ve always been interested in ai and after this lecture, I wondered what the possibilities with ai and typography was and managed to stumble across a video called

“Uppercase and Lowercase Letters”

this is created by a guy who specializes in creating his own fonts along with messing around with ai

In the video, he explores the use of ai to create and analyze fonts and typography, during the project he begins by aiming to create upper case letters which later turns into a letter identifying program. My favorite parts have to be how identifiable the recreated fonts are to their originals.
