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.
'Nailed It' is a unique and exclusive display typeface primarily designed to portray a message of something to be wary of and to represent the dangerous. The font is physically made of various size nails and splints of timber, positioned to replicate an original font based loosley on a brush script typeface in capitals. Uses for the font could range from circus signs to hardware shops (the most common, obviously).
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
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.
Based on the relationship between ink and water, experimenting with the way the two liquids merge and the variation of patterns they create. The font does not follow one distinct pattern, it displays the variation of impressions these two fluids can create. The typeface is a display font, not designed to be used for large bodies of text.
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 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.
‘Scrap Paper’ is a bold, display typeface inspired by the theme of compression. The letterforms were created from drawings of a distorted alphabet, formed by screwing up each letter printed onto a piece of paper, hence the name. The scrunched up type make for a ‘grunge’ feel, perfect for a large format, yet still visible when used at a smaller size.
For this Fontstruct project, I decided to look at the word malnourished. Looking at all aspects that surround the meaning of the word , the lack of proper nutrition caused by not having enough to eat or not consuming the right things for whatever reasons. I decided to look at the fashion industry, looking into what people put themselves through to become the “perfect” size and that the expectation for this image is growing. My font represents this by showing the main spotlight on the front letter which is tall and skinny followed by the reality displayed in the shadow which is a bigger more “healthy” letter , showing the two extremes in a whole typeface.
Home blends contemporary sans-serif characters, created using negative space, with ornate mosaic patterns to form a decorative display font in the style of kitchen tiles. Each character is unique - set against four identical patterned tiles. This typeface is very versatile and functional insofar as that it has the potential to be used in a variety of diverse settings such as magazine article headings, pottery and ceramic prints, wall-hangings and shop signage.
