Designed and built the Topic Rundown Graphic for Desus and Mero’s weekly show, for use on social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Next, I created a grid-based LED font that our social media team would be able to use for this. This was done by closely referencing an image I found of LED signage letters, and changing the letters from a 5x8 grid to a 5x7 one. The finished EPS files were done on Illustrator and uploaded to Icomoon, generating the font for us to use.
