Charlie the font, has developed into a transitional, serif typeface. It is a modern face, and can be set in either small text or large text, remaining aesthetically legible, clear and welcoming.

I am interested in the impermanence of life as it relates to the cycle and repetation of events (i.e. life and death). Regardless of a persons impact on the stage of an individuals life, both people are temporary. Allelements of life are temporary and continue to transition. Whether I like it or not, my brothers life was brief. The ephemeral life of my older brother Charles Fredrick Kenney was short lived in a much larger, transforming broad picture. I plan on exploring this through a letter that was writen to me by one of my brothers dear friends after his death. I will be scaling it to the height of my brother and his shoulder width.I will then set the text it Charlie font. This will express my message as well as display the type speciman.
