This font is a response to the Type project in 1st year at UWE. This first fontstruction and typeface was based on the theme of Disintegration. I conducted research by looking into video games, digital glitches and how deterioration and decay impacts both the visual quality and deferred meaning. This font can also represent deinterlacing. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

This is Fracture my first font. My chosen theme for this project was ‘disintegrate’. I began by looking up synonyms for my theme and I explored them visually in my sketchbook, just basic pencil sketches of a handful of letters. I went for quite illustrative type with a simple structure – the effect layered over the letter. Whilst flicking through ‘typography sketchbooks’ I found some work I liked and considered to be a similar style to mine – urban influences. The letter works on a square of 10-34 across with a width of about 10 squares on the elements of the letter itself, although it varies on corners and joins which gives it a block or slab style. Because of the styling of the typeface I would say it’s use is in short texts or headings. It works better on small scales as on a larger scale the curves and disintegrating effect begin to pixelate.
