This font is based around the theme of 'Filth' and took direct inspiration from a piece of dirty netting. The convex effect the grid pattern has on the letters reminds me of 3D digital drawing software, could be used for something within that field. Intended to be used for display text.

This is my first attempt at using Fontstruct, my aim was to create a typeface representing the word 'Fluid'. I played around with some ideas by looking at how reflections and water held in a bottle can distort something's appearance, looking at the nature of running water and rain drops run down windows. I noticed how randomly liquids can move in an open space and how there really are no repeated patterns in its movement if you look closely. To get my final outcome I tried writing out the alphabet with nail varnish and glue which gave a really blotchy effect and sometimes gaps in the letter, which I then combined with the nature of rain drops running down windows to get a really wobbly letter form.

I wanted a font that looked a bit 'unsure'. It is for my grandson who is just 8 months old but already fascinated by and very interested in helping his dad on the computer when we have a video call :) I realise he won't use "his" font for a few years ;)
