A font based on the spirit of Joan Jett and what you can think of while you're listening to her music.This is a clone of Formal Roman

I began by exploring the theme of decaying objects, such as fruit, and studied the shape (and change of shape) of the objects, as they progressively fell apart. By creating hand drawn sketches i began to create a typeface that looked as though it was rotting/melting away. I used a traditional typeface, Times New Roman, that could be considered as quite boring and a font which has been around for a long time and then used it as a base font which i then made to look as though it was rotting and falling apart by refering back to my earlier sketches. Overall I aimed to create a typeface that represents the decay of an older, more traditional and perhaps overused typeface.

This typeface is based on the theme decay. It references the idea of how things decay when they are forgotten and so parts of each of the letters are missing. This links to the idea it is based on the courier font which was used in the typewriter. It shows a link that once something is forgotten e.g. technology such as a type writer it starts to decay. This typeface also has reference to the ideas of the bacteria that cause decay and so hence called prokaryotes which is the term used to describe this bacteria. This font can be used as a display font for many things including gig posters etc.
