LaVergne was the surname of one of my Dad's friends whose handwriting was particularly interesting. There's a special elegance and eccentricity to his lettering that stood out to me and inspired me to create this typeface. To start the project, I scanned samples of his writing and isolated each upper/lowercase letter, symbol, and number in Adobe Illustrator. Next, I recreated the glyphs with the pen tool to make each aspect editable. After many rounds of drafting designs, I created variations of the original font to create a family of typefaces including 12 variations. The font family is available as a set to be downloaded, with individual spacing interactions pre-programmed. Due to its playfulness and legibility, it would be best suited for children's books or informational signage, such as in the examples below.
