I cut the letter 'A' out of black cardboard and placed it in a glass of water, and then photographed it at many different angles and positions. I really liked the distorted effect the water had on the letters, and so after changing the theme to 'reflection' I carried on this technique with the rest of the alphabet. 'Pane in my glass' is made up of my favourite shapes that came out of this experimentation.

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!Part%20of%20my%20%22Found%20Type%22%20project%20at%20UWE%20where%20we%20had%20to%20design%20a%20font%20for%20a%20theme%20that%20we%20chose.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20chose%20Saintly.%0D%0A%0D%0AThroughout%20my%20research%2C%20I%20looked%20at%20the%20architecture%20of%20churches%2C%20the%20similarities%20in%20there%20designs%20and%20how%20certain%20shapes%20could%20easily%20be%20recognised%20as%20being%20linked%20to%20that%20type%20of%20architecture.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20then%20started%20looking%20at%20Dante%20Alghieri%27s%20Divine%20Comedy%20and%20the%20illustrations%20by%20John%20Flaxman%20and%20Gustav%20Dor%C3%A9.%0D%0A%0D%0AAt%20first%20it%20became%20difficult%20trying%20to%20figure%20out%20how%20to%20implement%20this%20into%20a%20font%2C%20but%20then%20I%20took%20on%20a%20challenge%2C%0D%0A%0D%0AWould%20it%20be%20possible%20to%20get%20Dor%C3%A9%27s%20engravings%20into%20the%20font.%0D%0A%0D%0AThen%20another%20thought%20crossed%20my%20mind%2C%20how%20do%20images%20look%20when%20compressed%20to%20low%20pixel%20quality%20sizes%20and%20how%20they%20are%20still%20recognisable.%0D%0A%0D%0ASo%20I%20did%20that%2C%20I%20bought%20a%20book%20of%20Dor%C3%A9%27s%20illustrations%20for%20the%20divine%20comedy%2C%20and%20they%20started%20to%20build%20into%20the%20letters.%0D%0A%0D%0AEach%20letter%20also%20has%20this%20Art%20Deco%20like%20area%20to%20it%20which%20went%20well%20for%20the%20Stain%20Glass%20Window%20approach%20I%20also%20wanted%20in%20the%20design.%0D%0A%0D%0AIt%20took%20a%20lot%20of%20practice%20to%20get%20this%20right%2C%20and%20there%20was%20a%20fair%20amount%20of%20copy%20and%20pasting%20here%20and%20there%20but%20overall%20I%27m%20quite%20happy%20with%20the%20turn%20out.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20hope%20you%20all%20enjoy%21

13 downloads13%20downloads1333 glyphs33%20glyphs33I was inspired to design this typeface by the architecture of Bristol city centre. I was most interested in all the different kinds of windows I saw around, and the many shapes there were from decorative and detailed to modern and simple. I collected lots of photos of the best windows to work with, and developed these into letter forms. I then edited them until they worked as a consistent typeface. I think Windowstruct would work well for logos or posters, as it looks best as single words or in a large size.I%20was%20inspired%20to%20design%20this%20typeface%20by%20the%20architecture%20of%20Bristol%20city%20centre.%20I%20was%20most%20interested%20in%20all%20the%20different%20kinds%20of%20windows%20I%20saw%20around%2C%20and%20the%20many%20shapes%20there%20were%20from%20decorative%20and%20detailed%20to%20modern%20and%20simple.%20I%20collected%20lots%20of%20photos%20of%20the%20best%20windows%20to%20work%20with%2C%20and%20developed%20these%20into%20letter%20forms.%20I%20then%20edited%20them%20until%20they%20worked%20as%20a%20consistent%20typeface.%20I%20think%20Windowstruct%20would%20work%20well%20for%20logos%20or%20posters%2C%20as%20it%20looks%20best%20as%20single%20words%20or%20in%20a%20large%20size.
