The theme I chose was 'Decorative'. It's my first font that I have created using Fontstruct and is based around an iron fence that I came across that was very art deco. I initially used a lot of circles, and then found the font wasn't legible when constructed like this. As a result I used minimal circles of the same thickness to the rectangles for the basic structure. I left spaces when joining them which I thick modernises the font as well as the varied height of the crossbars. Which was determined but the width of certain shapes. I used the typeface Arial as my basic foundation for this font as it is simple and for starting off on fontstruct, recreating Arial is comfortably achievable using the shapes provided.
