This font has 67 characters, and the upper and lower characters are identical. This font is intended to be used for titles because it looks better when enlarged, however you may use it how you wish ofcourse. Feel free to vote and comment!

When be began the project on designing my own typeface, I had to design and create it relating to a specific theme. I chose to focus my design on the theme of 'Decay'.
From the beginning, I wanted to create typeface which represented a very basic idea of the the theme of Decay. I looked at all possible avenues that I could take into design consideration and ended up coming with some interesting concepts I could use.
I started looking at the idea of Decay throughout technology. I began taking photos as well as researching forms of decay in technology. The one aspect which kept coming up were computer keyboards. I found plenty of images of keyboards with decay, which then acted as a key influence for my work.
The idea for having my typeface created in the style of computer keys was quite unique to me. When in the creation process, I created the key design as well as the letter-forms which I had mapped out using graph paper. I was then to add the appearance of decay to the letter-forms afterwards.
I then started coming up with styles of decay I could incorporate into the letter-forms. I wanted to have a clear representation of the theme, but keep it in the style/representation of computers. i.e Pixels.
I messed around with one of the letter-forms with a basic pixel appearance of decay. When zoomed in, it didn't look like the standard I wanted it to be, but when zoomed out, the pixels came together to present the them in detail. I then went ahead and applied the feature to all of the letter-forms and punctuation symbols. The typeface was finally complete.

The design was inspired by the Art Deco era typefaces and architecture. While constructed with simple shapes, it is strong, bold, stylistic, and commands attention. Created in Des Moines, this is Des Deco.

This is a simple font where every letter is an octagon! This is my first font and I am continuing to create simplistic future-esque fonts such as SmoothPlicity and OCTAGONAL

Following the theme 'Decorative', I explored the aesthetics of 1970's wallpaper. This lead to finding lots of primary and secondary sources, which I narrowed down to two patterns. I noticed a mixture of curvilinear and geometric patterns. At this point, I realised that 'Decorative' does not necessarily mean curvy and swirly, so I decided to attempt geometic, but with a sort of curvilinear feel.
My main struggle was creating a design that wouldn't require too much pixelation. Creating swirls of a large size just wasn’t achievable, without using a humongous grid to cancel out the pixelation. If I had known that Illustrator would display my font to the quality I was looking for, I would have used a slightly smaller grid so the inside pattern stood out more.

I always enjoyed the art of calligraphy and its formal eligance. I wanted this font to reflect an old world handwritten feel.

This font was based on the word 'Systematic' which led me to think of things that involve/are part of systems, for example, pipe works. Inspired from simpler modular fonts but taking a twist on it by making it curved and rounded. Works better at a medium display size.
