This is what I've been working on the past few days.
The preview messed some letters up for some reason.
Hope you enjoy :D
'Nailed It' is a unique and exclusive display typeface primarily designed to portray a message of something to be wary of and to represent the dangerous. The font is physically made of various size nails and splints of timber, positioned to replicate an original font based loosley on a brush script typeface in capitals. Uses for the font could range from circus signs to hardware shops (the most common, obviously).
Distressed is an uppercase font focusing on the theme destruction. Within this element I looked more specifically at mental health and how social media has an affect on our mental wellbeing. I created a cracked and distressed effect on each individual letter to visually express the pressure and insecurity we can experience from social media.
This is the first font that I've ever kerned, and kerned correctly. I've painstakingly made sure that every letter combination relevent to my font in English are absolutely perfect. I hope you all enjoy using this font. Happy typing! :D
IMPORTANT: If you want to experience the kerning of my font in a program, please use one that supports it, like GIMP for example (I use it).
NOTE: This font is now OFFICALLY complete, kerning and all. Please DO NOT request any kerning as I am no longer updating this font, thank you.
The theme for this typeface is the word 'Filthy'. The letterform's structures are based on dust and the way it separates when a finger is dragged through it. Dust collects on objects that have been untouched for periods of time, often through neglect. The use of negative space and lack of border draws attention to the dot-work dust that forms around the accents of the letters. As a finger cleans dust, larger piles form where there is a change in direction. This helps identify the individual characters whilst keeping a minimalistic approach. This font can be used for headings and posters, or shop designs and logos. I have always felt this font would go well on a burger shack to help give a rustic or edgy look.
This font originates from the adjective 'Energetic'. It's stable centre and shakey outer layer represents the effect of consuming copious amounts of energy stimulating substances, usually resulting in a case of Caffeine Jitters.
