Inspired by military and the need for all participant parts to be regiment. My typeface incorporates the distinct 'V' shape of a collar, responding to the idea of uniform.
1. Adjective: Remaining the same in all cases and at all times.
2. Noun: The distinctive clothing worn by members of the same organisation or body of people.
I initially responded to the level of regularity in military demonstrations, particularly from nations such as North Korea or Russia. Each character in my typeface is formed from the same starting shape to reflect this level of standardisation.

Starting from the word fluid I developed this font with the aim of incorporating several characteristics pertaining to the word itself. Each letter in the font flows from one to the next; a sense of motion continuing throughout. I looked at surface tension on liquids and tried to make the shape of the font reflect the constraints of this tension. I especially looked at wax turning from liquid to solid and the rigid shape it formed. It's quite simplistic so I would like to work more with it to see how I can include more texture that could link with the light reflections on the surface.
