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 on the word messy. Inspiration comes from paper being torn into small pieces, and the moment of chaos when work goes wrong and paper is ripped out of a sketchbook. The gradients are also not accurate in order to vaguely represent how shadows form on crumpled paper. The font was drawn freehand to begin and is designed to be used decoratively for headers. This font could be used for an art club poster.This is a clone
A display typeface (probably best viewed small, I'm aware!) based upon some physical type I made from dark food colouring etched into sugar syrup. This was to represent the brief theme I picked of 'unstable', hence why all the characters are completely induvidual in size and shape. I have also published a second version which displays what happens when the food colouring bled into the sugar syrup.
This font explores the configuration of bubble forms. The font was inspired by markmakings of ink bubbles which imprinted onto a surface, rather than bubbles floating in the air. I have involved lots of depth and tonality into the font, which, despite bubbles being quite a soft concept, gives it a very dark and heavy feel. The outcome also contains a very digital feel, due to the small scale I worked with.
**This font is still a work in progress**
Smash Me Again is inspired by broken glass. I traced around an image of broken glass molded in to a word and used is as my basis to create this font. It might not look exactly like broken glass, however, that was only the inspiration.
This font was created for and as part of my UWE graphic design course, this is my first font which is why it has several flaws, and is far from perfect. Feedback would be appriciated. Thanks!

I have made this font based on the overall theme of dangerous. When exploring this theme further I started looking at venomous animals and specifically at Funnel Web spiders. The intricate funnel shaped webs that they made started off the initial designs for this font. I looked at the different patterns that the webs can make and made a web of my own to priduce the shapes that inspired this font.
A typeface inspired by the theme 'systematic', developed through finding hidden shapes within geometric architecture and using them as building blocks for the letterforms. Sister font to - STACKED BLACKOUT
This font relates to the theme "Sharp" and is inspired by Cubist architecture. Cubist architecture is very rare and can be found only in The Czech Republic, especially in Prague. I took a core element of Cubist architecture, the triangle, and implemented it into a font. I divided each letter into sections and used different shades to make it look like decorative elements of a Cubist facade.This is a clone
