Z-MAC TYPEFACE DESIGN

BRANDING/ IDENTITY DESIGN/ SCHOOL PROJECT

Growing up as a fan of Houston Rockets guard Tracy Mcgrady.
I want to take the game of T-Mac as the inspiration and make a set of types to salute my childhood hero.
After reviewing the existing major sports relate typeface in the market.I was surprised by the similarity of all kinds of blocky, chunky heavy weight font styles. Maybe this is public’s common impression of most athletes.

But T-Mac is definitely not one of them in my mind, so I wanted to steer clear of cliché and create a set of typeface that could speak for Tracy Mcgrady.

So ladies and gentlemen, I’ll have you Z-MAC in the house: Z-MAN FOR T-MAC.
