As part of a project for my graphic design course at UWE, our brief was to create a typeface based on a theme. I chose vibration as my theme as I explored my theme I was drawn to line graphs which help record the frequency of sounds. I wanted my typeface to resemble this like it was on an ECG monitor. I also looked at John Skelton’s pinpression typeface which truly inspired my font, having continuous lines connecting all of the characters was very important and finding his work showed me that it was possible. This is my first attempt at creating a typeface and there are still alterations that need to be done.

My first serious attempt to make a serif using Fontstruct. This is for a university project, where I am attempting to make a serif that could be used in sci-fi moives/tv shows etc. So I’m trying to figure out what makes a typeface 'sci-fi' without a) being a sans and b)resorting to clichés that impede readability.
Any comments/feedback would be much appreciated!
