Family Monogram

Personal information can inform the creation and use of typography to convey history, identity and preserve a legacy. 

I created this monogram for my dad, Cyril. An energetic and hardworking man who is quite reserved in his ways especially when it came to talking about his past. And so, I found myself being inspired by his present. Over the 2019, my dad began practicing yoga and even attending the local yoga classes in his time off. Over the course of creating this monogram, I was comforted by the fact that my dad is also growing old and how he may spend his time as he nears his retirement. This monogram is inspired by the Sukhasana yoga pose and an old monogram found in a book. The intended application of this monogram was to be embroidered onto a yoga mat.
