This typeface is based on the word 'Unstable'. It is based around Syrian Refugees and the instability they experience at home and once they reach Europe. It is meant to convey the idea of identity loss. Each boarder cross takes them further away from home to new places where they are often treated like cattle - herded into unsanitary camps and branded as an outsider. With refugees often having to make an average of 6 boarder crosses before reaching safety each diagonal cut represents a new boarder. However the letters begin to crumble as the feeling of self-importance and identity is often lost once in Europe. This typeface aims to spread awareness of this tremendous struggle in the hope that it will enable people to welcome Refugees into their societies the way you would hope to be if the same catastrophe happened to you.

a research into dementia. This designed typeface represents the process of memory loss. Diagnosed, you lose all connections that you once took for granted. Now they are slowly drifting away from their once true and solid form.
I wanted my typeface to appear slightly un-legible as a whole, but with it's original form still present.
