7 downloads7%20downloads71 comments1%20comments135 glyphs35%20glyphs35My project was to create a font around a particular stimuli word - mine being 'dangerous'. My main inspiration came from a quote from my scuba diving instructor as he said "never touch anything in the water that is beautiful as all the beautiful things are the most dangerous". When I think of this quote and apply it to things I could see on a daily basis, I think of a rose, a beautiful flower with sharp thorns. The idea for my font was to create not a beautiful font, but a strong looking font with something beautiful yet harmful wrapped around it.My%20project%20was%20to%20create%20a%20font%20around%20a%20particular%20stimuli%20word%20-%20mine%20being%20%27dangerous%27.%20My%20main%20inspiration%20came%20from%20a%20quote%20from%20my%20scuba%20diving%20instructor%20as%20he%20said%20%22never%20touch%20anything%20in%20the%20water%20that%20is%20beautiful%20as%20all%20the%20beautiful%20things%20are%20the%20most%20dangerous%22.%20When%20I%20think%20of%20this%20quote%20and%20apply%20it%20to%20things%20I%20could%20see%20on%20a%20daily%20basis%2C%20I%20think%20of%20a%20rose%2C%20a%20beautiful%20flower%20with%20sharp%20thorns.%20The%20idea%20for%20my%20font%20was%20to%20create%20not%20a%20beautiful%20font%2C%20but%20a%20strong%20looking%20font%20with%20something%20beautiful%20yet%20harmful%20wrapped%20around%20it.

It's part of our animal instinct - when we come across something dangerous, our fight-or-flight instinct kicks in. I surveyed a class of students and asked them what they found frightening. The responses were varied, and although some were predictable, and others highly unusual, I found a common theme in many; things that bite, claw, and sting. With this in mind I started to design this font using shapes inspired by both the teeth of modern domestic dogs and of wild wolves. That's why I chose to name it 'Fenrir' - the great wolf of Norse mythology.People%20are%20afraid.%20That%27s%20what%20makes%20us%20human.%20It%27s%20part%20of%20our%20animal%20instinct%20-%20when%20we%20come%20across%20something%20dangerous%2C%20our%20fight-or-flight%20instinct%20kicks%20in.%20I%20surveyed%20a%20class%20of%20students%20and%20asked%20them%20what%20they%20found%20frightening.%20The%20responses%20were%20varied%2C%20and%20although%20some%20were%20predictable%2C%20and%20others%20highly%20unusual%2C%20I%20found%20a%20common%20theme%20in%20many%3B%20things%20that%20bite%2C%20claw%2C%20and%20sting.%20With%20this%20in%20mind%20I%20started%20to%20design%20this%20font%20using%20shapes%20inspired%20by%20both%20the%20teeth%20of%20modern%20domestic%20dogs%20and%20of%20wild%20wolves.%20That%27s%20why%20I%20chose%20to%20name%20it%20%27Fenrir%27%20-%20the%20great%20wolf%20of%20Norse%20mythology.

This was an experiment in using FontStruct without filters. It reminded me of why I use filters 90% of the time. There aren't as many solutions possible.

Periculum died after a bad copy and paste malfunction. The resurrection process was like walking on eggshells, but here it is. Lowercase was rushed a bit just to get it out there for Aphoria. 

The smoothness comes with the combination of preview scaling and anti-aliasing. It has to be scaled at just the right size to look convincing for on-screen purposes. This makes it more ideal for non-print related usage.Periculum.%20Rooted%20in%20the%20latin%20word%20for%20%27Dangerous.%27%20This%20was%20an%20experiment%20in%20using%20FontStruct%20without%20filters.%20It%20reminded%20me%20of%20why%20I%20use%20filters%2090%25%20of%20the%20time.%20There%20aren%27t%20as%20many%20solutions%20possible.%0D%0A%0D%0APericulum%20died%20after%20a%20bad%20copy%20and%20paste%20malfunction.%20The%20resurrection%20process%20was%20like%20walking%20on%20eggshells%2C%20but%20here%20it%20is.%20Lowercase%20was%20rushed%20a%20bit%20just%20to%20get%20it%20out%20there%20for%20%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F330251%22%3EAphoria.%3C%2Fa%3E%20%0D%0A%0D%0AThe%20smoothness%20comes%20with%20the%20combination%20of%20preview%20scaling%20and%20anti-aliasing.%20It%20has%20to%20be%20scaled%20at%20just%20the%20right%20size%20to%20look%20convincing%20for%20on-screen%20purposes.%20This%20makes%20it%20more%20ideal%20for%20non-print%20related%20usage.

---Not liking the e and the s so much.---While doing the sample, I found that even though the inter-character spacing is specifically set to one grid space wide, Photoshop was rendering the spacing differently per character pair. Same in Illustrator. Curious, I opened it in FontLab Studio. Turns out, the characters that have a half-wide brick left of the left edge in FontStruct are another half-brick-width over in the TrueType file. The sample is, therefore, manually kerned back to original.This%20was%20fun%20to%20do.%3Cbr%3E%0D%0A---Not%20liking%20the%20e%20and%20the%20s%20so%20much.%3Cbr%3E---While%20doing%20the%20sample%2C%20I%20found%20that%20even%20though%20the%20inter-character%20spacing%20is%20specifically%20set%20to%20one%20grid%20space%20wide%2C%20Photoshop%20was%20rendering%20the%20spacing%20differently%20per%20character%20pair.%20Same%20in%20Illustrator.%20Curious%2C%20I%20opened%20it%20in%20FontLab%20Studio.%20Turns%20out%2C%20the%20characters%20that%20have%20a%20half-wide%20brick%20left%20of%20the%20left%20edge%20in%20FontStruct%20are%20another%20half-brick-width%20over%20in%20the%20TrueType%20file.%20The%20sample%20is%2C%20therefore%2C%20manually%20kerned%20back%20to%20original.
