"Crypt" Is a gothic, serif font, inspired by the decorative and intricate details within many cathedrals and church architecture, influenced by such features such as stained glass, gargoyles, petroglyphs and spires.
Currently studying graphic design at UWE Bristol this is my first FonstStruct attempt, creating a typeface based on the theme ‘Rebirth’. After mind mapping all the ideas that sprang to mind when hearing this theme, the idea of our spiritual centre and specifically the seed of life, sacred geometry and recurring patterns in our universe stood out to me as subjects I wanted to explore.
After overlaying various sacred geometry over each other, to find similarities and differenced, specifically focusing on trying to unite the masculine and feminine attributes of the shapes, I started to draw and create my own recurring patterns.
Through research into existing religious script and spiritual fonts I found inspiration from the harsh angles uniting with soft curves. I started to create my own font building blocks and by creating my own bricks on FontStruct to create both my letters and recurring pattern which I placed within my letters to symbolise the sacred geometry and roots at the centre of all our lives.
