Doing Battle for The Type Fight

Ding! Ding! Ding(bats)!

Today I stepped into the ring on The Type Fight against the talented Kyle Read. The Type Fight is, "an arena for people who like having fun with letters." The challenge is to have two designers go head to head in an "alphabetic altercation." 2 designers, 1 letter, 0 mercy. 

Below you'll find a little bit of my process for my submission. The letter " V " presents its own challenges: creating a unique letterform, with the properties of a pointed " V " but still stylized enough to stand on its own.
