These are some sketches from other people on our table.
We were also given an upper case R in Ariel. I found that particularly hard because I have had very little to do with arial as a font and so don't fully understand what defines it. This has really taught me that to change my font for my alphabet soup brief I have to really understand the font I am starting with for my changes to be accepted by the letter forms.
I really loathed the result of this attempt, but I learnt a lot from it so...not a lost cause!
