11 downloads11%20downloads1130 glyphs30%20glyphs30This typeface has been created based on the theme 'Mobile'. I tried out a wide range of experimentation when it came to producing hand rendered work, as I felt I needed to work out what would best capture the general sense of the word. I initionaly thought I would use the aspect of being free and having my letters being very fluid. I thought road systems along with way-finding signs interested me more and I used the basic shape of the arrows used on the motor way signage in the UK. I experimented with curves and different shaped arrows but I settled on this because others made it too playful.This%20typeface%20has%20been%20created%20based%20on%20the%20theme%20%27Mobile%27.%20I%20tried%20out%20a%20wide%20range%20of%20experimentation%20when%20it%20came%20to%20producing%20hand%20rendered%20work%2C%20as%20I%20felt%20I%20needed%20to%20work%20out%20what%20would%20best%20capture%20the%20general%20sense%20of%20the%20word.%20I%20initionaly%20thought%20I%20would%20use%20the%20aspect%20of%20being%20free%20and%20having%20my%20letters%20being%20very%20fluid.%20I%20thought%20road%20systems%20along%20with%20way-finding%20signs%20interested%20me%20more%20and%20I%20used%20the%20basic%20shape%20of%20the%20arrows%20used%20on%20the%20motor%20way%20signage%20in%20the%20UK.%20I%20experimented%20with%20curves%20and%20different%20shaped%20arrows%20but%20I%20settled%20on%20this%20because%20others%20made%20it%20too%20playful.

I'm a first year graphic designer and this is my first time using fontsruct. This is response to a brief of designing a font under the theme 'decorative'. I'm really interested in Art Nouveau and the psychedelic art scene of the 60's and 70's,so it was a combination of this and looking into Moroccan patterns that inspired me. The font is designed to be used on a large scale and in small quantities.

23 downloads23%20downloads231 comments1%20comments136 glyphs36%20glyphs36A favorite of 1 userA%20favorite%20of%201%20user1The task for this project was to create a digital typeface using Fontstruct. From a selection of themes, I chose energy. 

Piquant was designed on strong emphasis of an attractive, sharp and energetic structure. Inspired by the modern typeface of late 18th century, boasting characteristics of stroke contrast, abrupt serifs, vertical axis, horizontal stress and small aperture. I have incorporated and manipulated these features into my typographic font along with a unique appearance of flowing characters that portray an energetic flux. Piquant exhibits bold lively curvature, sharp serifs and stimulating edge to an empowered lowercase character set. The font is to be used in larger sizes in plenty of white space, with generous leading and tracking to ultimately lend a striking visual quality.

19 downloads19%20downloads194 comments4%20comments435 glyphs35%20glyphs35This is Fracture my first font. My chosen theme for this project was ‘disintegrate’. I began by looking up synonyms for my theme and I explored them visually in my sketchbook, just basic pencil sketches of a handful of letters. I went for quite illustrative type with a simple structure – the effect layered over the letter.  Whilst flicking through ‘typography sketchbooks’ I found some work I liked and considered to be a similar style to mine – urban influences. The letter works on a square of 10-34 across with a width of about 10 squares on the elements of the letter itself, although it varies on corners and joins which gives it a block or slab style. Because of the styling of the typeface I would say it’s use is in short texts or headings. It works better on small scales as on a larger scale the curves and disintegrating effect begin to pixelate.

11 downloads11%20downloads113 comments3%20comments330 glyphs30%20glyphs30A favorite of 2 usersA%20favorite%20of%202%20users2I created this font based on the theme 'introverted'. I decided to use a bold and large typeface as a base to represent the ideas and words that form in introverts, but often go unseen or unheard. Running through this is a box, which always links into the next character unless there is a space, which contains a much smaller more simple version of the letter. This is what introverts do let out to the surface and is often not a full representation of the ideas behind it. I would compare it to the idea of an iceberg where the smaller letter is the ten percent that we do see and the larger letter behind is what we don't see.I%20created%20this%20font%20based%20on%20the%20theme%20%27introverted%27.%20I%20decided%20to%20use%20a%20bold%20and%20large%20typeface%20as%20a%20base%20to%20represent%20the%20ideas%20and%20words%20that%20form%20in%20introverts%2C%20but%20often%20go%20unseen%20or%20unheard.%20Running%20through%20this%20is%20a%20box%2C%20which%20always%20links%20into%20the%20next%20character%20unless%20there%20is%20a%20space%2C%20which%20contains%20a%20much%20smaller%20more%20simple%20version%20of%20the%20letter.%20This%20is%20what%20introverts%20do%20let%20out%20to%20the%20surface%20and%20is%20often%20not%20a%20full%20representation%20of%20the%20ideas%20behind%20it.%20I%20would%20compare%20it%20to%20the%20idea%20of%20an%20iceberg%20where%20the%20smaller%20letter%20is%20the%20ten%20percent%20that%20we%20do%20see%20and%20the%20larger%20letter%20behind%20is%20what%20we%20don%27t%20see.

11 downloads11%20downloads1142 glyphs42%20glyphs42This typeface was based on the theme of 'compression'. For this theme I wanted to give the impression of the letters being squashed into a small, confined space. To achieve this  I started with an 8x8 grid and designed each letter according to the set size. I found this challenging at first because I soon realised that by using a small grid I had limited myself with what I could produce. However, I feel that by sticking to my grid rule I have been successful in creating a simple but effective typeface.This%20typeface%20was%20based%20on%20the%20theme%20of%20%27compression%27.%20For%20this%20theme%20I%20wanted%20to%20give%20the%20impression%20of%20the%20letters%20being%20squashed%20into%20a%20small%2C%20confined%20space.%20To%20achieve%20this%20%20I%20started%20with%20an%208x8%20grid%20and%20designed%20each%20letter%20according%20to%20the%20set%20size.%20I%20found%20this%20challenging%20at%20first%20because%20I%20soon%20realised%20that%20by%20using%20a%20small%20grid%20I%20had%20limited%20myself%20with%20what%20I%20could%20produce.%20However%2C%20I%20feel%20that%20by%20sticking%20to%20my%20grid%20rule%20I%20have%20been%20successful%20in%20creating%20a%20simple%20but%20effective%20typeface.

I was looking at the word Dangerous. In the beginning I looked at broken things, construction sites, sharp tools, thorns etc. until I narrowed down my themes to sharp objects and the swift way that a knife can cut paper. Looking at this fast movement I tried to minimise the number of lines that I used in my typeface. In my opinion this font can be used for promotional ‘danger’ posters or advertisement.

13 downloads13%20downloads1314 comments14%20comments1432 glyphs32%20glyphs32A favorite of 5 usersA%20favorite%20of%205%20users5"Blimey!" is a typeface inspired by the 1970s Punk movement- paying notice to the political, economical and social issues of the time and how they affected what we commonly refer to as the “Punk Aesthetic”. Ransom note lettering, stencils, silkscreen printing and the appropriation of current cultural imagery aided the movement to deliver its important message of rebellion. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Starting off with the theme "Dangerous", my focus for this project drifted to the definitions of both “rebellion” and “anarchy”.  This naturally led me to the Punk movement and how it’s graphic style has been adopted into contemporary design practice. These graphics were often rough, raw, weathered and distressed- all of which I’ve tried to incorporate into my own type’s design. Ironically, the fact that this “style” is being used for commercial gain goes against the very foundations of Punk itself. This realisation spurred on the font’s name Blimey!, an ironic expression that is perhaps the furthest away from punk itself. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This typeface would be best utilised in consideration to posters, flyers and possibly book covers (providing the content matches the attitude of the font).
