This is my FontStruct created for the What The Font project on the UWE Graphic Design Course 2023. My intention for this font was to combine both English and Korean aesthetics. I made this font using the symbols of the Korean alphabet called Hangul specifically in a calligraphic style. It is named Seoche which is the romanization of ‘typeface’ in Korean.
My typeface is inspired by the style of object posters. I researched into how Before 1900 graphic design expression was rather pictureque and traditional. i looked into how advertisement has changed through time, fluctuation between simplistic and detailed. I researched into many typographers such as Lucian Bernhard (1910) his minemal illustrations and simplistic style a great inspiration. I wanted my typeface to reflect this style. starting each letterform with a square block and then chipping away the letterform. This made me open up to the idea of negative space, keeping my letters super simplistic and bold. my typeface is to be seen more as i image in itself rather a font.
Slim Deco is a stylised sans serif font inspired by the ever-enduring Art Deco era. This font has clean, modern lines and decorative accents which are subtle yet set the style perfectly.
Luxurious and visually striking, Slim Deco is set in all caps and therefore best suited for larger sizes, such as headline copy, magazine covers, movie titles, brand identities, coffee shop menus, posters etc.
This font takes you back to the roaring 1920s, the clinking of champagne glasses, the sound of jazz music and the bustling of people at fabulous parties. No matter how you use Slim Deco it will be seen as a glamorous and distinct font with strong shapes and architectural leanings that will creative an eye catching design.
when researching and coming up w/ ideas for this typeface i decided to explore the oldest known typeface: blackletter.
BS1 Ink-Bleed is a typeface made for "What The Font?" project
As you can see I was inspired by different graffiti and tags that I saw on Bristol streets. I decided to use simple style letters for better readability in this small grid.
I wrote each letter on cardboard, and pixelated on computer after that. I like that this method gives nice distortion/noise and nice realistic shapes.

My inspiration for this font was Tim Burtons typeface that was used throughout his films. I was also inspired by the old VHS tapes and the way they would glitch out sometimes making the typefaces look a little odd at times. I decided to make mine look a little off in some places with some letters to show the inspiration from this along with a little hint of Tim Burton's style.
For this font I was inspired by elegant and decorative type. I looked at old English style and modern cursive fonts to inform my design. My font would be described as script, pixelated, and formal, using thick and thin strokes, ligatures, and fluid strokes to simulate handwriting.
A typeface loosely based around Robert Perine's logo for Fender, characterised by natural, fluid shapes. The aim was to construct each letterform with minimal 'brushstrokes' - further details are captured with smaller, flicks/strokes. Additionally, the texture is supposed to mimick inkblots when using a fountain pen, for example.
This font takes inspiration from traditional pub signs. The wide variety of different fonts utilized in these signs caught my interest. Trying to emulate and create original letters inspired by the signs would prove a great challenge within the 24x24 grid restriction. I think the font captures the idea of competition between 'The Local's, as they tussle to have the most eye-catching designs on their signs, as every letter in my font is as eye-catching as the next. Many of the letters are individual variations of Blackletter (Old English), bold and lightly serifed type.
I made my font this way because it was visually pleasing to see the type thin and have the correct spacing in all the letters.
This is my take on the theme of protect. My aim was to make my font look like chains.
A display font inspired by one of the UK's first and most influential free-party sound systems- Spiral Tribe. They helped create a culture of freedom and expression through art and music which was heavily (and still continues to be) suppressed by the Police. They used tribal patterns frequently in their artwork, which is the reasoning behind the spiral shapes within the letters.
The weights are varied throughout the letters to make it more playful and psycholdelic, as the rave culture is against agression and force used frequently against them by the police. New age travellers embrace harmony- which is why the letters are sized so that they work together in words to create a wider pattern.
"SEAWEED' is a decorative font inspired through my research into the protection of the oceans. Through this research I was intrigued by the way that a simple thing like planting seaweed could possibly hold the key to reversing ocean acidification.
My typeface currently encapsulates the verb “protect” through two opposing connotations; one of them being to self protect; this phrase is conventionally associated with weapons, and I have illustrated this through sharp edged strokes to imitate knife-like objects. The other being is to hide; this is inferred the personification of the fact that elements of my letters are hiding themselves.
With the given theme of Protection, I looked into the human immune system and the biological human features. Researching further into antibodies, I created a type face of the antibody structure which resembles the shape of a capital Y. Following symmetrical shapes and doubled lines, I created an alphabet that mimics the original structure of antibodies, with similar joints and angles.
The main language seen in the videogame Stray, used by the robots as communication. However it's more of a cipher than a proper language. Therefore it can be transformed into a font/typeface for people to use.

Original typeface credit given to developers of the game Stray, I only take credit for the portions added onto the already existing typeface.
'Rebirth' is a display font designed for use in a large scale, for example as a title on a poster. The font was designed in response to a first term university brief and responded to the word 'rebirth'. The font centres around the idea of growth which led to the geometric elements as a connection to the symbol of an arrow, which I personally associated with growth.
As a first year graphic design student at UWE this is my first attempt at creating a typeface on Fontstruct based around the theme of ‘hope’. Looking at this theme I explored the words; dream, desires and wishing leading me to the classic phrase, ‘when you wish upon a star’ and have therefore, based my typeface on stars. Through research, I looked at the patterns and layouts of star constellations to find that they are only made up of straight lines and circles, which is why I have formed a simple lettering using only these two basic forms, incorporating the concept of star constellations.
Based on the theme of rebirth, ‘Fill in the blanks’ draws inspiration from the Renaissance era. Looking at the original printing press, traditional blackletter and Renaissance calligraphy, ‘Fill in the blanks’ offers a modern twist on some of the oldest typefaces to date. By looking at the brush strokes of blackletter and the serifs used in the printing press typefaces, this font is a combination of these characteristics. By using just these features the human eye can still recognise the letter form, essentially allowing your mind to ‘Fill in the blanks.’
For my chosen theme Community (specifically biological community)
I decided to work with a worm/snake shape. Trying to figure out the final letter shapes during the creative process I got inspired by the snake game I'm sure everyone played on their old Nokia including me.
I observed the snake's movements in the game and created a typeface based on that. I would characterize my typeface as a simple combination of retro and modern at the same time.
Created by Nicole Rybáková as a first-year graphic design student at UWE Bristol Uni.
Working under the theme of 'Rebirth', I have focused my first font on the idea of post-war architecture, or otherwise commonly known as modernist/brutalist architecture. Buildings constructed following the Second World War were built using new technologies of construction. These types of designs were known for their use of modern materials such as concrete and steel as well as their interesting geometrical forms. I was heavily influenced by the architecture featured in Owen Hopkins' book 'Lost Futures' which looks at the disappearing architecture of post-war Britain and how changing external contexts played a role in the subsequent destruction of these buildings.
