This font was made for a university project where we designed a typeface based on a chosen theme (Mine being rebirth)
I hope you enjoy my deconstructed abstract font which explores an alternative take on typography
Concept lettering based around the theme of 'incompleteness'. The typeface features a consistent negative space element, which both divides and completes individual letters. The font began as a experiment in which glyphs could be reduced to while still remaining legible before evolving into its current form.
This concept is currently being developed furver.
This type face is based on the buildings in the community of Bristol and how simply square they are.
The font is inspired by prompt word 'rebirth'. This typeface represents the change in lettering overtime, can be interpreted with the bold layer representing more minimalistic and professional modern lettering and the thin lines being more rough lines inspired by cave carvings. I took an abstract aproach to adding shade in certain areas the letters are cut which made the typeface look quite geometric at first glance.
Font based on given theme of Rebirth- Playing with idea of reconstruction of objects into new purpose. Letters combinations of objects were randomly generted to play into the rough, hand crafted aesthetic.
This is a theme developed from "Rebirth", a kind of new extraterrestrial typeface style living on Mars.
I was influenced by graphic and typeface designer Wim Crouwel, with a simple structure and a mixture with another typeface from the game Wolfenstein, avoiding additional strokes.
It also resembles a kind of domino.

A fun and energetic ornamental typeface based on the theme "community". Inspired by the pictograms of Otl Aicher and the isotype of Otl Nuerath, creating simplified figures. When words are typed, the people join together to make a community.
Celtic calligraphy font with spiral detailing inspired by the triskelion symbol. The concept behind the symbol and therefore the typeface is of rebirth - and more specifically the cycle of life, death and rebirth - symbolised by the spiral motifs.
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.
Revive is the first Iteration of a font inspired and designed to celebrate a rebirth in urban environments. I focussed on using simple geometric shapes and simplifying the feeling I wanted to convey with my font. By moving the x height of the letters really close to the cap height I tried to recreate the illusion of perspective, as if you were looking at a building from an “ants eye view” This helped convey a feeling of growth and structure representing the re-birth of nature and cities together. I tried to add an organic element of growth to the letters by using squares, I think it adds contrast to the typeface but can be difficult to interpret.This is a clone
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.’
This font was based on the theme “Hope”. It was inspired by spray painted protests and the textures and inconsistency of hand-painted placards. Seeing people standing together, holding their placards high created a sense of hope that change and reforms could be made to create a more just and equal society.This is a clone
This typeface was designed as a response to the shift towards Online and Digital Communications that communities practice in modern society. Since the emergence Internet, people has more frequently resulted to email, messaging and other online connections as a means of communicating with each other as supposed to speaking directly in person.
This has limited the power of communication and removed many organic aspects of conversation. I feel this is particularly prevalent today as a result of the Covid pandemic and as people continue to feel more isolated, we loose the important subtleties in the way we discuss and exchange.
The character’s design was based off fonts like CMC7, MICR E13-B, CRT Screen Typography, the works of Gerard Unger, Wim Crouwel and other pieces of design created for the exchange of digital information between machines.

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.
As a first year Graphic Design student at UWE, I have made my first attempt at a fonstruction, creating a font based around the theme of 'rebirth'. I have researched and explored the Japanese art form: Kintsugi which involves the restoration of broken pottery through connecting the broken parts with liquid gold, creating something new and unique. This art form allows us to embrace the beauty of flaws and imperfection, and through each letter I have attempted to recreate the rough, jagged lines of the broken pottery, and the cracks of 'gold' which bind them together (shown through the white lines). Any comments/advice would be really appreciated.
This is my first typeface as a first-year graphic design student at UWE. It has been created based on the theme ''Rebirth''. Inspired by the Renaissance which means ''rebirth'' in French the typeface is a transition from the old to the new. It is also connected to moon phases as a symbol of rebirth and change. The typeface is a combination of sharp elements and smooth shapes, has some futuristic and traditional motifs. Each letter is unique and can be used by itself or in a text with the others. Any comments are welcomed.
For the font, I made it by the theme “community”. It then reminds me of bees in the natural world as they often work as a group, which needs good communication to connect each other being part of the community. I made the fonts using hexagon shapes based on the look of the honeycomb that the bees storing the honey from.
My first typeface was inspired by the theme “gang community”. A large element of my research was the analysis of the most commonly forged bank notes. This typeface is the development of the contrasting typography that feature on notes. One type of typography is clear and concise, and the opposite typography is increasingly complex and hard to read to the naked eye. This is to make it extremely hard for criminals to counterfeit.
This is a collection of letters that represent the internet after choosing ‘Community’ as one of our three word choices. The bars coming off of the letters are to be seen as WiFi signals to go with the context of being on the internet.
This font began with the theme of rebirth and the idea of sending people to the next life. This lead me to looking into Egyptian Mummies and Mummification. I noticed intricate and careful wrappings of some of the mummies and decided to incorporate some of these patterns into the font.
