OBJECTIVE: create two R’s. one should be a replication of the roman majuscule R and the other should be a contemporary interpretation of said high roman capital.  then, put the contemporary R into a context.
After tracing the history of Western writing all the way back to ancient Cuneiform, I created this R which is based off of the Roman Capitals found on the Trajan Column
roman R
For my contemporary R, I was inspired to create a drop-cap R.
four contemporary Rs.
In Context
For my context, I created a company called "RAMBLE PUBLISHING" which uses the R as its logo.
