This Fontstruction is for the theme "continuous". For this theme I began looking at words that relate to continuous, such as "journey" I then looked at ideas that relate to journey such as train tracks. However I felt that this would have been difficult to create in fontstruct, so I proceeded to look at other things that are similar in structure which resulted in me looking at the form of zips.

For my Fontstruction I chose the theme condensed, which was part of our typography brief on our Graphic Design course at UWE. With my theme being condensed, I went with a very skinny typeface, this is because I was going to call it anorexic. On certain letters that have right angles I added an inner curve, to represent how skinny a human body goes when anorexic. The hardest part of this, was the limitations of FS and trying to get around them, this includes letters like M, N, W, R & K. Once I knew how to nudge and stack blocks, the challenge of combining blocks to make the correct letters wasn't as hard. This typeface isn't based on any current typeface.

Part of my "Found Type" project at UWE where we had to design a font for a theme that we chose.
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!

*Updated to 26 characters*
I started this Fontstruction with a blank canvas and blank mind, and decided to draw my phone (guess which one that is!) to just warm up. Before I knew it, the idea for the whole design was staring me right in the face. Hopping around the internet, looking for images and information on which phones to draw was great fun. Who knew that the first ‘personal communicator’ was the IBM South Bell Simon, which combined the features of a mobile phone, a pager, a PDA, and a fax machine. Yes, you read that right! The Simon was also nine inches tall.

Kind of based on xe Micropolis by xenophilius, I have designed this font as famous buildings in Washington, D.C., the Capital of the United States. I will be updating the font regularly with new buildings and museums. Note that the buildings are not at all to scale.
Here's what the buildings are:
A - Capitol Building
B - Library of Congress
C - Washington Monument
D - Lincoln Memorial
E - Jefferson Memorial
F - White House
G - Museum of Natural History DC
H - Smithsonian Museum
I - National Air and Space Museum
-- and more to come.
