This font is based of the theme 'gregarious'. For this I looked into coral reefs and sea anemone, then developed ideas through print making with acrylic paint and sponges. The type face is inspired by the flowing nature of the sea anemone and how some sea creatures/ plants grow upwards towards the sun. Eventually the type began to look more like flames/ smoke than a plant, which I decided to focus on instead. This shows how a project can completely change from the initial idea and just how it is important to always develop further taking into account others opinions and thoughts.
This character set is inspired by the ironwork of balcony railings on Clifton's Victorian buildings. Based on the theme "elegant", I intended to capture the "elegance" portrayed by these ornate artworks, and so the internal patterns are based on actual pattern works from the iron railings. I felt that a set of capitals best captured the almost boastful and eye-catching nature of the railings.
A font which can be used to add a handrawn effect. The font evolved from me intially using toothpaste to create an alphabet and finding it effective , My aim was to try and recreate similair characteristics within my font. The tootpaste flicked off at the ends and collected in certain areas which created a really intersting typographical style. The lines are wobbly and unique on each letter as I wanted the font to have movement, energy and a bounce.
