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

This was designed during the first term of my Graphic Design degree at UWE Bristol. I began thinking about decorative work, and delicate materials such as lace, and silk. This then began to make me think of wedding dresses, and book characters, such as 'Miss Havisham' from the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations. I then began to look into her character in detail, and thought of her bitterness, as well as her heartbreak and femininity. I began after that, to think of her in a type, and created this type face. I can now see it being used in brochures, and fashion posters.
