THE INSPIRATION FOR MY FONT WAS DRAWN FROM RETRO, MORE SPECIFICALLY FONTS USED ON COMPUTERS FROM THIRTY TO FORTY YEARS AGO. MY GOAL WAS TO ACHIEVE A SENSE OF NOSTALGIA IN PEOPLE WHO PLAYED THE FIRST COMPUTER GAMES. CODING ALSO WAS A BIG PART OF MY INSPIRATION FOR THE FONT.This is a clone of CODESPHERE
This font references the art of Stained Glass window making and the patterns and frames Glaziers use. Every stained glass display is unique! Inspired by a stained glass doorway in Bristol along North Street, Bedminster. Named after Winona, Minnesota.
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.
Have you ever seen just a single character and though "Why don't they all look like that".
Thats what I thought seeing the letter A from a certain font. This font started with the A, the biggest thing I wanted to keep in this font was that fat stroke at the top of each letter. Its not a pretty picture, its not perfectly geometric and nearly every character looks kinda funny.
5HEAD is arguably the most top heavy font ever made; its thick, its nasty, something about it is obscene. When originally sketched, it was a clean and smooth 70s esc font - once put through Fontstruct its become a futuristic, isometric mess. Enjoy.
Main inspirations are the font Baveuse as well as a poster from Pearljam (Dismemberment Plan).
This typeface is based on the hand-painted names seen on the side of canal boats. The inconsistent, grainy texture of each letter is meant to represent the irregularities in using paint, for example the general wear and tear from the elements like chipped or peeling edges. This was my approach to the idea of “analogue” and a brief set to explore what that means. To me, in the context of the brief, analogue could be defined as possessing a nostalgic or "old school" quality- something replicated in an unauthentic manner in order to create a look-alike imitation of a time gone by. I focused on the old method of transport in Bristol: boats. To further this idea of a 'time gone by', I created this font in the set to look like ink stamped letters.This is a clone of 1st Draft of Analogue Fizz

A Font that pays homage to early 16th Century Gothic design in both Literature and Architecture. The sharp angles and jagged edges depict the ideas of the era and the pioneers of this time - bringing that into a modern representation with a serif style and italic Fontstruct.
I am a first year student at UWE and was tasked with creating a font from scratch as one of my tasks. I have decided to re design my font as though the previous font fit the Jazz theme much better, I feel this font not only feels more natural but is more unique as well. This type of style is based on a mix between music notes as well as piano keys to envoke the idea that music is involved in the creation of this font.
I am a graphic design student at UWE bristol. I have created a digital typeface inspired by bristol docks, i looked alot at the hooks on the cranes and used the shapes from that and other machinery for the structure of my letters.
An updated typeface inspired by the home of Fine Art in Bristol, the Arnolfini Building, now including a lower case and numbers. This takes queues from its grotesque, black-letter typeface along the outside. Working on a small scale allowed me to ensure the uniformity of each character in the font.This is a clone of Nineteen Sixty One Sans v1
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.
During my first semester of studying graphic design at UWE I was briefed to create a digital display typeface that responded to the theme of analogue. After carring out a range of reseach into different areas of analog I decided to focus on screnprinting. Screenprinting is an analogue method of printmaking and it is very common for people to utilise halftones to get a more detailed image. A halftone is a mathmatical dot pattern that represents the grayscale value of colour and are created based on a grid. From here I decided to create a typeface using this halftone method.

Inspired by the digital aspect of CDs and DVDs, I decided to create a font that takes influence from The Prodigy's 1992 album "Experience" which is an album that I used to listen to as a child on my CD player. I liked the use of soft yet harsh lines and ovals hidden in between circles, along with the mismatched uppercase and lowercase letters. I tried my best to make the font seem clean cut and smooth but I am not the best at using this website so far haha so I will need some more practise, especially in the K, W, X and Z letters as the diagonal sides were confusing to make.
when researching and coming up w/ ideas for this typeface i decided to explore the oldest known typeface: blackletter.
A font inspired by a combination of old gothic and block type, designed for bigger bodies of text and mastheads, using this font for smaller paragraphs would result in less legibility. I aimed to combine the straight and structured characteristics of slab serif block fonts and the artistic elements of gothic fonts. As a result i have created Ribbon Edge, a clear typeface with stylized ends.This is a clone
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.

I ran with the concept of 'analouge fun', inspired by boardgames and playing cards. I wanted to display the opulent elements of ferns and botanical motifs found on vintage cards, and the caligraphic typefaces found on older baordgames but also contrast that with 'node like' elements and squared off features to represent the sort of stepping-stones on a game board.
Whilst designing my typeface i decided to explore the places i live near on stokes croft and study the typefaces they use for their branding, Its mainly pubs and music venues that stand out to me so i attempted to create a font that i could imagine on the face of a cosy candlelit music venue/pub. It ended up looking more like it should belong outside CEX but i tried :o
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.
The origin of this design was me thinking about all the times I have seen a poster or ad, where the modern style of the typography has had success trying communicate the message that was intended. It became a personal goal to create a font that would unite a piece of my personal life, which in this case it is the city where I was born and my chosen style. My country is known for having many volcanos, so I decided to place elements that would represent the volcano but at the same time keeping the modern style. The circles in each letter imitate the view of a volcano from above, it is subtle but it is there, and to me will always be fascinating when we get to discover new information when it is explained by the artist, but it was always there, however, we were not able to see it through the artist’s point of view.
Inspired by the iconic analogue synthesizers of the 1980s and audio in its rawest form.
Juno is primarily built around the basic shapes of the Square, Triangle and Sawtooth waveforms. Each glpyh is specifically designed to be as unique as possible and incorporates a mixture of left and right diagonal cut-throughs in order to maximise legibility.This is a clone
Inspired by water movement, this typeface was created for my 'What The Font' project for UWE. I became inspired by the rippling and fluidity of water when looking through photos from my recent snorkelling trip in the Red Sea. I began experimenting on grid paper to form a draft typeface that I could build onto in Fontstruct.
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 modern revamp of the font used in the original release of Windows, "Fixedsys", many of the fonts used in this era have been kept updated and modernised, such as Chicago, the first macOS font, whereas Fixedsys hasn't. I looked to those other modernisations and applied the same principles here to update this classic typeface.This is a clone
(UNFINISHED) My inspiration for the creation of this typeface was Urban Graffiti, the scrawly, scribbly-kind rather than the larger, bubblier ones. I took the small motifs and other themes that commonly appeared and turned them into a more legible typeface. For this project I was also given a 26x26 limit when creating my type.
"Cassette" a font that echoes the essence of analog technology, particularly the classic cassette. It encapsulates the significance of a time when cassettes were a cultural cornerstone, infusing your designs with a nostalgic touch of that bygone era.
Inspired by Russian typography, this typeface was created for the 'analogue' typeface project for UWE. My inspiration came from looking at old Russian propaganda posters, predominately Agitprop, and their bold, visually striking typefaces. I began by drawing and experimenting on grid paper to which I then translated onto Fontstruct to create 'DYSTOPIA'.
