My typeface is based on the theme of disintegration. My starting point came from my interpretation of the word disintegrate; I immediately thought of 'burn'. After this I carried out some experiments by burning paper which led me to focus on the fragility of the charred edges. This made me want to create a delicate typeface with subtle shading; I found that I was influenced by Baskerville and Bistream Vera. My final typeface is designed to look like burnt paper. It is expressive and could only be used as title text rather than body text.
