I am a first year student at the University of the West of England. Our first project this year was to design a typeface based around a word of our choosing. I opted for ‘Pompous’, as it stood out to me from the list. During the project I visited Bristol Cathedral several times, and spent time in and around Bridgwater, looking at anything that I found to be pompous, such as cast-iron work and Baroque architecture. My final design is influenced by Gothic typefaces and raised lead tombstones/plaques. The name ‘Delectatio Morosa’ is Latin for peevish delight, which I discovered whilst looking at different Latin phrases.

This font was created under the title of 'decay' and explores the raw natural shapes of origami or paper folding. I wanted to create a font around ripped and destroyed paper while still keeping the simplistic forms of the shapes that appear within origami.

I created this font to explore the basic shapes within origami and paper folding, this also led to the creation of my other font 'Decami' which further explores ripped or decayed origami.
