OIL RIG is based on the theme "destructive" particulary with regards to environmental destruction. I based my font on the structure of oil rigs; I think they have sense of beauty about them, but behind that there is a sinister note, as they are facilitating the human led destruction of our planet.
The extraction of oil for the manufacture of products such as plastic, is having a detrimental effect on our planet. Oil spills eradicate marine communities, and plastic products pollute our oceans. This is an issue which I feel needs more attention.

Under the theme destruction, I explored ways to advertise environmental harm we are causing. I took inspiration from the increasing amount of plastic being deposited in the ocean and how it is moulded. I want this font to communicate the harsh impact this plastic waste has on the oceans, the life they hold and how it impacts other aspects of the environment.
