Made as part of the “Found type” project for UWE Bristol. Inspired by the word “Squishy” I explored ‘doughy’ avenues and decided to base a font around first donuts and then finally settled on jam. This font is inconsistent, no one letter is uniformed. It portrays a wet and fluid feel that could be seen in any cookbooks or type for children. I would imagine this font to be useful for a very small audience as it is very specific. It could be used beyond the jam idea and be useful in terms of science fiction as it looks ambiguous out of context of the materials. This is not the finished product and it will be worked on over the next few months.

This typeface based on the theme fluid has been inspired by the way that water/ink splashes onto a surface and is also based on Zuzana Licko’s pixelated typography works. After a first attempt was too loose and large in scale a more cohesive type was created using that used the basic shape of existing characters and implemented fluid edges. This decorative typeface could be used for purposes in the sci-fi or horror genre of movies and gaming perhaps

A typeface influenced by the work of Yee Poon and Ruslan Khasanov. Designed to have a wet appearance with various levels of liquid dripping below its baseline, 'Come on in, the Water's Lovely' features counters interrupted by droplets, rounded crotches and melted serifs.
