I produced this typeface as a part of a UWE project.This font was created around the theme of Malnourished and involved drinking many cups of tea! I took inspiration from it being the Autumn season and started looking closely at leaves and their structure. I then moved on to show the progression of the season throughout; how as time passes the leaves fall off the trees and the trees are left bare. The type would be better suited to a title or headline font rather than a body text and I've found works best on a large scale.
My first fonstruction is based around the theme of malnutrition, but focuses on lesser acknowledged end of the spectrum, over-nutrition. I took inspiration from nature of skin and fat on overweight or obese bodies, putting emphasis on the folds and bulges you might typically see on the skin of a larger frame.
This blocky and industrial font was inspired by architechtural features on a large multistory car park near where I live. I took pictures of multiple elements from the building and rearranged and rotated the shapes to create letter forms, and used shading to create a 3 dimensional effect to mimic the structures depth when seen in person.
Cheap fantasy is a type face inspired by Lurid lighting and hallucinations. Taken from hand drawn letter forms to online use, Cheap Fantasy captures a bright dazzling effect with broken letters.
This display type face has horror feel, with disintegrating blurred letters would suit any horror comic/book title.
This typeface was designed from using the word 'Squishy' as a starting point. Which i then went on to pinpointing it down to fat in particular looking at animal fat. I feel this font can be used in a large poster or sign, advertising or for promoting against animal cruelty.This is a clone
A display font inspired by brutalist architecture and 3D concrete forms in built up city centres. Designed to give a sense of scale and weight.
My theme was continuous i started to try and create letters using string making a one line letter, then many doodles and sketches later i started to looped the lines back around becoming more and more looped and decorative until i scoured through them all taking the best bits to combine them into 'Continuous'. Continuous is smooth flowing font thats designed to be a continuous line that loops back on its self to create the letter using a mixture of negative space and the shapes created by the line.
Desk bound is inspired by the shape of paperclips. The theme for this idea is ‘systematic’, my initial interpretation of this was something heavy and solid, to represent machinery/construction, based on industrial systems. The idea behind the paperclips comes from the notion that every ‘system’, in a broader sense of the word, requires careful planning and organisation. The physical form of the letters is intended to appear both soft and geometric, making use of the rounded rectangular shape of the paperclips to communicate this and remain consistent, reflecting back on the original ‘systematic’ theme whilst looking lighthearted and playful.
This font is based around the theme of 'Filth' and took direct inspiration from a piece of dirty netting. The convex effect the grid pattern has on the letters reminds me of 3D digital drawing software, could be used for something within that field. Intended to be used for display text.
do-oh is a display typeface inspired by the word 'squishy'.
I looked at squishing and the movement of squishing something hard and soft and the different forms it would take; I became interested in how an object changes form when squished but how it retains sections of the previous form too but slightly distorted.
I was also interested in the different ways of squishing something and how that changed the outcome.
The typeface is focused on shapes made when I created letters from squashing dough together.This is a clone
This font was created around the theme of 'elegant'. I chose to focus on the elegance of flowing fabric and drapery, so designed these letters inspired by classical depictions of fabric in paintings and marble sculptures.
This font relates to my original theme, ‘Messy’, which was developed based on the Brazilian slums, Favelas. In Western culture, these are viewed as ‘messy’, however in Brazilian culture they take great pride in their homes. This reflects the idea that people respond to the same theme in different ways depending on their cultural context. This font is designed to be used at large display sizes of 100pt or more as this means that the detail in each character can be clearly seen.
The theme for this typeface is the word 'Filthy'. The letterform's structures are based on dust and the way it separates when a finger is dragged through it. Dust collects on objects that have been untouched for periods of time, often through neglect. The use of negative space and lack of border draws attention to the dot-work dust that forms around the accents of the letters. As a finger cleans dust, larger piles form where there is a change in direction. This helps identify the individual characters whilst keeping a minimalistic approach. This font can be used for headings and posters, or shop designs and logos. I have always felt this font would go well on a burger shack to help give a rustic or edgy look.
Based on the theme of malnutrition, this font uses chicken bones to structure its letter forms. The chicken bones represent the cycle of malnutrition that continues today in the fast food industry – how we mistreat and abuse chickens that we then eat, consequently malnourishing ourselves in the process. The font is based on a stencil font, which chicken bones where placed on top of, photographed, drawn and translated onto Font Struct to create the final product. The font is not designed as body text but is designed to be used for means that need a more impacting, visually striking and eye catching font.This is a clone
This Fractured font is inspired by the breaking of materials and what is left behind after the destruction as the letter forms begin to morph as the key aspects move away from there original space.
