I chose Saintly.

Throughout my research, I looked at the architecture of churches, the similarities in there designs and how certain shapes could easily be recognised as being linked to that type of architecture.

I then started looking at Dante Alghieri's Divine Comedy and the illustrations by John Flaxman and Gustav Doré.

At first it became difficult trying to figure out how to implement this into a font, but then I took on a challenge,

Would it be possible to get Doré's engravings into the font.

Then another thought crossed my mind, how do images look when compressed to low pixel quality sizes and how they are still recognisable.

So I did that, I bought a book of Doré's illustrations for the divine comedy, and they started to build into the letters.

Each letter also has this Art Deco like area to it which went well for the Stain Glass Window approach I also wanted in the design.

It took a lot of practice to get this right, and there was a fair amount of copy and pasting here and there but overall I'm quite happy with the turn out.

I hope you all enjoy!Part%20of%20my%20%22Found%20Type%22%20project%20at%20UWE%20where%20we%20had%20to%20design%20a%20font%20for%20a%20theme%20that%20we%20chose.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20chose%20Saintly.%0D%0A%0D%0AThroughout%20my%20research%2C%20I%20looked%20at%20the%20architecture%20of%20churches%2C%20the%20similarities%20in%20there%20designs%20and%20how%20certain%20shapes%20could%20easily%20be%20recognised%20as%20being%20linked%20to%20that%20type%20of%20architecture.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20then%20started%20looking%20at%20Dante%20Alghieri%27s%20Divine%20Comedy%20and%20the%20illustrations%20by%20John%20Flaxman%20and%20Gustav%20Dor%C3%A9.%0D%0A%0D%0AAt%20first%20it%20became%20difficult%20trying%20to%20figure%20out%20how%20to%20implement%20this%20into%20a%20font%2C%20but%20then%20I%20took%20on%20a%20challenge%2C%0D%0A%0D%0AWould%20it%20be%20possible%20to%20get%20Dor%C3%A9%27s%20engravings%20into%20the%20font.%0D%0A%0D%0AThen%20another%20thought%20crossed%20my%20mind%2C%20how%20do%20images%20look%20when%20compressed%20to%20low%20pixel%20quality%20sizes%20and%20how%20they%20are%20still%20recognisable.%0D%0A%0D%0ASo%20I%20did%20that%2C%20I%20bought%20a%20book%20of%20Dor%C3%A9%27s%20illustrations%20for%20the%20divine%20comedy%2C%20and%20they%20started%20to%20build%20into%20the%20letters.%0D%0A%0D%0AEach%20letter%20also%20has%20this%20Art%20Deco%20like%20area%20to%20it%20which%20went%20well%20for%20the%20Stain%20Glass%20Window%20approach%20I%20also%20wanted%20in%20the%20design.%0D%0A%0D%0AIt%20took%20a%20lot%20of%20practice%20to%20get%20this%20right%2C%20and%20there%20was%20a%20fair%20amount%20of%20copy%20and%20pasting%20here%20and%20there%20but%20overall%20I%27m%20quite%20happy%20with%20the%20turn%20out.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20hope%20you%20all%20enjoy%21
