Details

Description:
This is my first FontStruction while currently studying graphic design at Bristol UWE. Lots of experimentation solely using paints; quick hand movements and flicks to produce a messy, unrefined effect. Working in less than 1 second for each letter (with real paints), used as reference. Inspired by East Asian calligraphy.

Superb.
Have you thought of increasing the SPACE key using Advanced > View > letter Width. And then adjusting the green vertical line as desired. Usually half of a letter, but it depends on the font.

what a great font. natural and organic. great technique. i imagine that you used a tablet to do this? and also some type of tracing technique? very advanced skills for a beginner :) well done.


funk_king
funk_king Sat, 6th November, 2010

also, thanks for allowing us to clone this and view your technique. incredible. i played around a little by changing your filter settings from 1X1 to 2X2 and also replacing the original brick that you used with the different circle bricks. this results in some interested moire effects which you may want to experiment with yourself. again, really nice work.

funk_king Sun, 7th November, 2010

well..ok, since you asked :) i only did these (yes, more than one :) to see how changing the original brick would affect this incredible font. i'm sure these effects can be achieved using various graphics apps, but you know i always like to experiment and see the results of what if...

The only thing you must do is credit the original creator. You can't claim the work as your own.


cam.ill
cam.ill Wed, 11th January, 2012

moraly i fully agree, but i think under the share-alike it is not mandatory..this would be the cc-by-licence..no?

It is. The attribution (or "by") is part of any and all cc licenses.

Ah, thanks..didnt knew that. But Is the mentioning of the creator mandatory for re-distribution only or also for the use of the font?

Very nice. Lowercase letters would be awesome, but I don't wanna rush you, and I doubt I could make them myself.

I'm not understanding what shapes you used to get the brush affect? Seems all the ones on here available to us don't match up or seem compatible? And when you say quick movements and flicks, what does that mean, or how do you do that?

It would be interesting to know whether badgerkins was asked whether this design could be used commercially.
