The Number 45 typeface was inspired by the Citigroup center in New York City, where located at 53rd Street between Lexington and Third Avenues in midtown Manhattan. The 45 degrees angled top is the distinctive signature of this mansion, which has engaged me to develop an architecture series typeface around it. I drew the outline of the building first and then using squares to subtract the positive space. The system is to keep the top of the building shape (flat-45-flat) in the letter as much as possible.
