Folded is typeface based on the idea of paper folding. The idea of the paper folding technique was inspired by my original theme of the life and mind of an introvert. The word introvert means a person who thinks 'inward', so therefore to start off with i played around with the idea of 'inward thinking' and came across the idea of folding paper as when folding paper things become distorted and changed and can also be seen as a inward action or to look inward when folding things in half for example. This later on led me to this typface.
This font is based on the construction of origami. When creating any kind of origami a system must be followed in order for it to be successful, so I realise this linked in well. With all variations of my systematic designs the main idea behind them was the combination of basic shapes. With this font I mainly used squares and triangles, creating something complex by using a rule and a combination of geometric shapes.
