Type Tuesday: High Heels

These high heels by Zumra Waheed are the result of a project for her letterforms and calligraphy class.

“I was eager to experiment with different styles and forms however it turned out harder than I had expected. For instance, what disappointed me most was that it was definitely hard to fit certain letter forms into the dynamic shapes of shoes. “O” for example, if it was to resemble a shoe, should I either twist it or draw a shoe inside an ‘O’? For which I settled with taking out an element of the shoe, which was a shoe strap, then shaped it as an ‘O’ just so that something else would not look too out of shape.”
