As part of my Graphic Design brief at UWE I was asked to design a font based on the word 'Curve'. I wanted to design a typeface that uses the negative space and creates a curve from consistent shapes, hence only using a select set of pixels. This also strongly links to my research into ceramic sets where curves were introduced strongly during post war times in 1945 - 1960s. I was inspired by the sculpture work of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth in particular, and feel that the font has produced its own ceramic set with a flow throughout the typeface created within the negative space.

This took me for absolutely ever. I haven't produced anything for ages because i have been revising and having exams and stuff and just didn't feel like making anything. I've been in and out of this font for about 2-3 months. I think this helped me as to not just to keep producing the similar letters each time. I may add some more characters later just im a bit bored of it to be honest. I do like it, its just that it was a lot of effort. I hand drew most letters, and the others I copied and tweaked. Hope you like it!
