30 glyphs30%20glyphs30A favorite of 1 userA%20favorite%20of%201%20user1When I started the project I was immediately drawn to script font and I paired this with the fluid theme to experiment with various ways of pairing the two. It started as a more random, decorative script font then evolved into a consistent letterform. After a lot of hours in Fontstruct I feel I was able to overcome some of the problems I had initially and was able to turn my ideas into an actual script based typeface. I would use this font for Titles and decorative purposes.

40 glyphs40%20glyphs40The theme I chose was 'Decorative'. It's my first font that I have created using Fontstruct and is based around an iron fence that I came across that was very art deco. I initially used a lot of circles, and then found the font wasn't legible when constructed like this. As a result I used minimal circles of the same thickness to the rectangles for the basic structure. I left spaces when joining them which I thick modernises the font as well as the varied height of the crossbars. Which was determined but the width of certain shapes. I used the typeface Arial as my basic foundation for this font as it is simple and for starting off on fontstruct, recreating Arial is comfortably achievable using the shapes provided.

3 downloads3%20downloads331 glyphs31%20glyphs31A favorite of 1 userA%20favorite%20of%201%20user1This typeface is based around the theme of 'Decorative'. It was designed for the project given to me during my first year of studying graphic design at UWE Bristol This typeface is inspired by nature and plants. The shapes of each letter were inspired by the outlines of leaves and calligraphy strokes. Whereas the pattern of this typeface represents the texture of leaves, stems, and vines. The font is designed for decorative and ornamental purposes only, such as advertising or poster design and is not suitable for use in body text as it would be difficult to read.This%20typeface%20is%20based%20around%20the%20theme%20of%20%27Decorative%27.%20It%20was%20designed%20for%20the%20project%20given%20to%20me%20during%20my%20first%20year%20of%20studying%20graphic%20design%20at%20UWE%20Bristol%20This%20typeface%20is%20inspired%20by%20nature%20and%20plants.%20The%20shapes%20of%20each%20letter%20were%20inspired%20by%20the%20outlines%20of%20leaves%20and%20calligraphy%20strokes.%20Whereas%20the%20pattern%20of%20this%20typeface%20represents%20the%20texture%20of%20leaves%2C%20stems%2C%20and%20vines.%20The%20font%20is%20designed%20for%20decorative%20and%20ornamental%20purposes%20only%2C%20such%20as%20advertising%20or%20poster%20design%20and%20is%20not%20suitable%20for%20use%20in%20body%20text%20as%20it%20would%20be%20difficult%20to%20read.

5 downloads5%20downloads535 glyphs35%20glyphs35Following the theme 'Decorative', I explored the aesthetics of 1970's wallpaper. This lead to finding lots of primary and secondary sources, which I narrowed down to two patterns. I noticed a mixture of curvilinear and geometric patterns. At this point, I realised that 'Decorative' does not necessarily mean curvy and swirly, so I decided to attempt geometic, but with a sort of curvilinear feel.

My main struggle was creating a design that wouldn't require too much pixelation. Creating swirls of a large size just wasn’t achievable, without using a humongous grid to cancel out the pixelation. If I had known that Illustrator would display my font to the quality I was looking for, I would have used a slightly smaller grid so the inside pattern stood out more.Following%20the%20theme%20%27Decorative%27%2C%20I%20explored%20the%20aesthetics%20of%201970%27s%20wallpaper.%20This%20lead%20to%20finding%20lots%20of%20primary%20and%20secondary%20sources%2C%20which%20I%20narrowed%20down%20to%20two%20patterns.%20I%20noticed%20a%20mixture%20of%20curvilinear%20and%20geometric%20patterns.%20At%20this%20point%2C%20I%20realised%20that%20%27Decorative%27%20does%20not%20necessarily%20mean%20curvy%20and%20swirly%2C%20so%20I%20decided%20to%20attempt%20geometic%2C%20but%20with%20a%20sort%20of%20curvilinear%20feel.%0D%0A%0D%0AMy%20main%20struggle%20was%20creating%20a%20design%20that%20wouldn%27t%20require%20too%20much%20pixelation.%20Creating%20swirls%20of%20a%20large%20size%20just%20wasn%E2%80%99t%20achievable%2C%20without%20using%20a%20humongous%20grid%20to%20cancel%20out%20the%20pixelation.%20If%20I%20had%20known%20that%20Illustrator%20would%20display%20my%20font%20to%20the%20quality%20I%20was%20looking%20for%2C%20I%20would%20have%20used%20a%20slightly%20smaller%20grid%20so%20the%20inside%20pattern%20stood%20out%20more.

The central influence leading me to this final typeface was a Social Network diagram, where lines meet seemingly infinitely. The final product ended in a decorative, kinetic font with the use of negative space to create the emerging letters.

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.
