I started looking at how the time of day effected the shape and the size of the subsequent shadow cast. However, I then moved onto the ideas of bevels and a more subtle shadow effect created by raised centres of the letterforms. The 'impossible triangle' effect came from a idea that was brought up in a critique about 'extending it and making it really elaborate'.

7 downloads7%20downloads765 glyphs65%20glyphs65A favorite of 1 userA%20favorite%20of%201%20user1When be began the project on designing my own typeface, I had to design and create it relating to a specific theme. I chose to focus my design on the theme of 'Decay'. 

From the beginning, I wanted to create typeface which represented a very basic idea of the the theme of Decay. I looked at all possible avenues that I could take into design consideration and ended up coming with some interesting concepts I could use.

I started looking at the idea of Decay throughout technology. I began taking photos as well as researching forms of decay in technology. The one aspect which kept coming up were computer keyboards. I found plenty of images of keyboards with decay, which then acted as a key influence for my work.

The idea for having my typeface created in the style of computer keys was quite unique to me. When in the creation process, I created the key design as well as the letter-forms which I had mapped out using graph paper. I was then to add the appearance of decay to the letter-forms afterwards.

I then started coming up with styles of decay I could incorporate into the letter-forms. I wanted to have a clear representation of the theme, but keep it in the style/representation of computers. i.e Pixels.

I messed around with one of the letter-forms with a basic pixel appearance of decay. When zoomed in, it didn't look like the standard I wanted it to be, but when zoomed out, the pixels came together to present the them in detail. I then went ahead and applied the feature to all of the letter-forms and punctuation symbols. The typeface was finally complete.

5 downloads5%20downloads5261 glyphs261%20glyphs261A favorite of 1 userA%20favorite%20of%201%20user1Another clone of my lanky, monospaced font, Monkey!  This is Monology, another monospaced font, but it has just one square block, in a monologue of sorts with itself.  Really this just means that this font is pixel-perfect and will not have anti-aliasing at the correct size (16 or 12 pt, depending on the program).  It should be 6x14 pixels at the largest, including the box drawing characters and block/shading elements.  There are also some arrows and the ever present copyright, registered, and trademark signs.  This should be more useful than the original Monkey for certain games, but I would still recommend Monkey over Monology for day-to-day programming/office usage as it is easier on the eyes.Another%20clone%20of%20my%20lanky%2C%20monospaced%20font%2C%20Monkey%21%20%20This%20is%20Monology%2C%20another%20monospaced%20font%2C%20but%20it%20has%20just%20one%20square%20block%2C%20in%20a%20monologue%20of%20sorts%20with%20itself.%20%20Really%20this%20just%20means%20that%20this%20font%20is%20pixel-perfect%20and%20will%20not%20have%20anti-aliasing%20at%20the%20correct%20size%20%2816%20or%2012%20pt%2C%20depending%20on%20the%20program%29.%20%20It%20should%20be%206x14%20pixels%20at%20the%20largest%2C%20including%20the%20box%20drawing%20characters%20and%20block%2Fshading%20elements.%20%20There%20are%20also%20some%20arrows%20and%20the%20ever%20present%20copyright%2C%20registered%2C%20and%20trademark%20signs.%20%20This%20should%20be%20more%20useful%20than%20the%20original%20Monkey%20for%20certain%20games%2C%20but%20I%20would%20still%20recommend%20Monkey%20over%20Monology%20for%20day-to-day%20programming%2Foffice%20usage%20as%20it%20is%20easier%20on%20the%20eyes.
