Spaztec was origanally inspired by the word "ornate".
I began by looking at jewelry and "flourishes" on other fonts. After playing around with shapes and curves I realised i hadn't been thinking outside of the box.
Ornate could have different meanings and take many forms. I then took interest in Aztec and Native American prints. I particularly liked the "hand crafted"/"imperfect" shapes and chose to comunicate the rawness in my typeface.

Keeping to the sewing theme. I designed this to look like letters that have been either weaved, stitched, or screen printed onto the fabric to create a patchwork quilt effect.
This seems to work best using a sack cloth effect.
Although it works equally as well as a wire fence/ chequered steel/ tread plate / diamond plate flooring effect.
In an ideal world there would be more empty weaves at the top and bottom of each character. I would also prefer a different style Q.
Due to comp rules I have had to omit the lower case, and others, as this just squeezes into the 32 pixel height limit.
All comments and criticism appreciated.

I wanted to create something that was somehow consistent but without any set rules on structure, aside from basic things like letter height. Kind of industrial/mechanical, but mostly random.
