First year Graphic's Student at uwe, this was part of a project where i was given the word decay, and had to go about designing a display font based around this word. So i went out and looked at decaying locations around bristol. I was influenced by fly posters on walls which had been layered up overtime. I experimented with post it notes to see what effects i could get from that, and this is what i ended up with.

Cracking concept. Excellent stuff, but I wouldn't say it sums up the word 'Decay'. 9/10

Your fontstruction has all the fine qualities any designer would crave for. It's fresh and creative, it looks very nice, and above all, it's legible. However, the layered pieces of sticky stationery does not suggest anything remotely connected to decay. No pictures of deterioration, disintegration, ebbing, wear and tear, dental caries, or radioactive decay spring to my mind. It's a good office theme, though. 10/10

PS.: The term "Post-it" is a trademark of 3M. They might not approve your font name.
