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.

I decided to use a bold and large typeface as a base to represent the ideas and words that form in introverts, but often go unseen or unheard. Running through this is a box, which always links into the next character unless there is a space, which contains a much smaller more simple version of the letter. This is what introverts do let out to the surface and is often not a full representation of the ideas behind it. I would compare it to the idea of an iceberg where the smaller letter is the ten percent that we do see and the larger letter behind is what we don't see.I%20created%20this%20font%20based%20on%20the%20theme%20%27introverted%27.%20I%20decided%20to%20use%20a%20bold%20and%20large%20typeface%20as%20a%20base%20to%20represent%20the%20ideas%20and%20words%20that%20form%20in%20introverts%2C%20but%20often%20go%20unseen%20or%20unheard.%20Running%20through%20this%20is%20a%20box%2C%20which%20always%20links%20into%20the%20next%20character%20unless%20there%20is%20a%20space%2C%20which%20contains%20a%20much%20smaller%20more%20simple%20version%20of%20the%20letter.%20This%20is%20what%20introverts%20do%20let%20out%20to%20the%20surface%20and%20is%20often%20not%20a%20full%20representation%20of%20the%20ideas%20behind%20it.%20I%20would%20compare%20it%20to%20the%20idea%20of%20an%20iceberg%20where%20the%20smaller%20letter%20is%20the%20ten%20percent%20that%20we%20do%20see%20and%20the%20larger%20letter%20behind%20is%20what%20we%20don%27t%20see.

I chose vibration as my theme as I explored my theme I was drawn to line graphs which help record the frequency of sounds. I wanted my typeface to resemble this like it was on an ECG monitor. I also looked at John Skelton’s pinpression typeface which truly inspired my font, having continuous lines connecting all of the characters was very important and finding his work showed me that it was possible. This is my first attempt at creating a typeface and there are still alterations that need to be done.As%20part%20of%20a%20project%20for%20my%20graphic%20design%20course%20at%20UWE%2C%20our%20brief%20was%20to%20create%20a%20typeface%20based%20on%20a%20theme.%20I%20chose%20vibration%20as%20my%20theme%20as%20I%20explored%20my%20theme%20I%20was%20drawn%20to%20line%20graphs%20which%20help%20record%20the%20frequency%20of%20sounds.%20I%20wanted%20my%20typeface%20to%20resemble%20this%20like%20it%20was%20on%20an%20ECG%20monitor.%20I%20also%20looked%20at%20John%20Skelton%E2%80%99s%20pinpression%20typeface%20which%20truly%20inspired%20my%20font%2C%20having%20continuous%20lines%20connecting%20all%20of%20the%20characters%20was%20very%20important%20and%20finding%20his%20work%20showed%20me%20that%20it%20was%20possible.%20This%20is%20my%20first%20attempt%20at%20creating%20a%20typeface%20and%20there%20are%20still%20alterations%20that%20need%20to%20be%20done.
