Inspired by Stefan Sagmeister's letterings my goal was to create a design that has similarities to a handwriting font.

I chose to develop the theme messy, I thought to myself ‘what makes a mess?’ This led me to the idea of toast, it’s messy and especially when burnt. I cut letters out of burnt toast, I really liked the effect it had made therefore it influenced me to develop it further within FontStruct. I decided to use Helvetica as a guide purely for its simple, clean letterforms, hence why I have named my typeface ‘Burnt Helvetica’. I wanted to really capture the essence of the burnt areas with shading, therefore my inspiration came from cutting the burnt toast around a Helvetica letter template, photographing it and printing it on graph paper. Due to the nature of the font being messy I wouldn’t use it on anything formal or of importance, I feel that it would be suitable to be used within children associated designs, definitely food related designs and perhaps something rather playful or of course, messy. This is my first attempt using FontStruct all feedback is welcome.My%20first%20project%20as%20a%20student%20at%20UWE%20studying%20Graphic%20Design%20was%20to%20create%20a%20font%20using%20FontStruct.%20I%20chose%20to%20develop%20the%20theme%20messy%2C%20I%20thought%20to%20myself%20%E2%80%98what%20makes%20a%20mess%3F%E2%80%99%20This%20led%20me%20to%20the%20idea%20of%20toast%2C%20it%E2%80%99s%20messy%20and%20especially%20when%20burnt.%20I%20cut%20letters%20out%20of%20burnt%20toast%2C%20I%20really%20liked%20the%20effect%20it%20had%20made%20therefore%20it%20influenced%20me%20to%20develop%20it%20further%20within%20FontStruct.%20I%20decided%20to%20use%20Helvetica%20as%20a%20guide%20purely%20for%20its%20simple%2C%20clean%20letterforms%2C%20hence%20why%20I%20have%20named%20my%20typeface%20%E2%80%98Burnt%20Helvetica%E2%80%99.%20I%20wanted%20to%20really%20capture%20the%20essence%20of%20the%20burnt%20areas%20with%20shading%2C%20therefore%20my%20inspiration%20came%20from%20cutting%20the%20burnt%20toast%20around%20a%20Helvetica%20letter%20template%2C%20photographing%20it%20and%20printing%20it%20on%20graph%20paper.%20Due%20to%20the%20nature%20of%20the%20font%20being%20messy%20I%20wouldn%E2%80%99t%20use%20it%20on%20anything%20formal%20or%20of%20importance%2C%20I%20feel%20that%20it%20would%20be%20suitable%20to%20be%20used%20within%20children%20associated%20designs%2C%20definitely%20food%20related%20designs%20and%20perhaps%20something%20rather%20playful%20or%20of%20course%2C%20messy.%20This%20is%20my%20first%20attempt%20using%20FontStruct%20all%20feedback%20is%20welcome.

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.For%20my%20Fontstruction%20I%20chose%20the%20theme%20condensed%2C%20which%20was%20part%20of%20our%20typography%20brief%20on%20our%20Graphic%20Design%20course%20at%20UWE.%20With%20my%20theme%20being%20condensed%2C%20I%20went%20with%20a%20very%20skinny%20typeface%2C%20this%20is%20because%20I%20was%20going%20to%20call%20it%20anorexic.%20On%20certain%20letters%20that%20have%20right%20angles%20I%20added%20an%20inner%20curve%2C%20to%20represent%20how%20skinny%20a%20human%20body%20goes%20when%20anorexic.%20The%20hardest%20part%20of%20this%2C%20was%20the%20limitations%20of%20FS%20and%20trying%20to%20get%20around%20them%2C%20this%20includes%20letters%20like%20M%2C%20N%2C%20W%2C%20R%20%26%20K.%20Once%20I%20knew%20how%20to%20nudge%20and%20stack%20blocks%2C%20the%20challenge%20of%20combining%20blocks%20to%20make%20the%20correct%20letters%20wasn%27t%20as%20hard.%20This%20typeface%20isn%27t%20based%20on%20any%20current%20typeface.

Idea: Shoe lace

... was set a task to research, develop and make a font/typeface design using one of the themes in a list given to us. My first two attempts was looking at the most obvious idea of bubble writing just to get a feel of fontstruct where it occurred to me that I practically chose one of the most hardest themes to do on fonstruct. other attempts were made in sketch books to see how much could push my thought process on one particular theme. The idea then struck me whilst on a break and looking down at my shoes after dropping an item.

Process: took one shoe lace/string and arranged into letters.
then took pictures and use them as reference points for each and every letter.

because I had trouble recreating the actual picture on fontstruct I decided to step back and approach it differently. this is when I got the idea that instead of just making the string as it is, i'll just make the font thicker and put in some pattern like detail such as weaved fabric and recreate that.

I went back to the sketchbook and looked at the letters and decided to just do it with one string shaped as the lettersTheme%3A%20Curves%0D%0AIdea%3A%20Shoe%20lace%0D%0A%0D%0A...%20was%20set%20a%20task%20to%20research%2C%20develop%20and%20make%20a%20font%2Ftypeface%20design%20using%20one%20of%20the%20themes%20in%20a%20list%20given%20to%20us.%20My%20first%20two%20attempts%20was%20looking%20at%20the%20most%20obvious%20idea%20of%20bubble%20writing%20just%20to%20get%20a%20feel%20of%20fontstruct%20where%20it%20occurred%20to%20me%20that%20I%20practically%20chose%20one%20of%20the%20most%20hardest%20themes%20to%20do%20on%20fonstruct.%20other%20attempts%20were%20made%20in%20sketch%20books%20to%20see%20how%20much%20could%20push%20my%20thought%20process%20on%20one%20particular%20theme.%20The%20idea%20then%20struck%20me%20whilst%20on%20a%20break%20and%20looking%20down%20at%20my%20shoes%20after%20dropping%20an%20item.%0D%0A%0D%0AProcess%3A%20took%20one%20shoe%20lace%2Fstring%20and%20arranged%20into%20letters.%0D%0Athen%20took%20pictures%20and%20use%20them%20as%20reference%20points%20for%20each%20and%20every%20letter.%0D%0A%0D%0Abecause%20I%20had%20trouble%20recreating%20the%20actual%20picture%20on%20fontstruct%20I%20decided%20to%20step%20back%20and%20approach%20it%20differently.%20this%20is%20when%20I%20got%20the%20idea%20that%20instead%20of%20just%20making%20the%20string%20as%20it%20is%2C%20i%27ll%20just%20make%20the%20font%20thicker%20and%20put%20in%20some%20pattern%20like%20detail%20such%20as%20weaved%20fabric%20and%20recreate%20that.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20went%20back%20to%20the%20sketchbook%20and%20looked%20at%20the%20letters%20and%20decided%20to%20just%20do%20it%20with%20one%20string%20shaped%20as%20the%20letters

A crossword is a word puzzle that normally takes the form of a square or a rectangular grid of white and black shaded squares, however i decided to remove the black background that is normally visible as i wanted to create a clear, sleek and flowing typeface. Initially i wanted to create the whole font out of 4x3, but soon i realised that some letters wouldn't work and that would then make the whole font harder to read so i increased my canvas size per letter to 5x5 maximum. The numbers have no relevance to the shape of the letters, they are just evenly spread so that they don't duplicate next to each other. I have started playing around with other versions of the font and hope to get them live soon.
