This font is reflective of gothic architecture. The contrast between the solid lines and the decorative elements of each letter are representative of gothic cathedrals with their towering walls and vast stained glass windows. The letters are mostly made up of arches, which are prominent features of gothic buildings.

Originally inspired by darkgreen_orange's Sajou designs I looked at embroidery more closely and saw a link to silk painting and stained glass.
I did this 'font' to trial some ideas. It would make novelty dividers between text paragraphs or as top-of-page/end-of-page decoration.
Work in progress ...........

Idea: Shoe lace
... was set a task to research, develop and make a font/typeface design using one of the themes in a list given to us. My first two attempts was looking at the most obvious idea of bubble writing just to get a feel of fontstruct where it occurred to me that I practically chose one of the most hardest themes to do on fonstruct. other attempts were made in sketch books to see how much could push my thought process on one particular theme. The idea then struck me whilst on a break and looking down at my shoes after dropping an item.
Process: took one shoe lace/string and arranged into letters.
then took pictures and use them as reference points for each and every letter.
because I had trouble recreating the actual picture on fontstruct I decided to step back and approach it differently. this is when I got the idea that instead of just making the string as it is, i'll just make the font thicker and put in some pattern like detail such as weaved fabric and recreate that.
I went back to the sketchbook and looked at the letters and decided to just do it with one string shaped as the letters

My chosen theme was the word ‘continuous’. This led me to look at rope and the circular patterns within lace and doilies. The typeface embodies the repetition and intricacy of lace but also the strength of rope through it's geometric style structure.
