34 downloads34%20downloads3435 comments35%20comments3536 glyphs36%20glyphs36A favorite of 10 usersA%20favorite%20of%2010%20users10Part of my "Found Type" project at UWE where we had to design a font for a theme that we chose.

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

“Scratching” is a form of vandalism apparently derived from sprayed graffiti, in which tags are scratched into windows (usually), mostly of public transportation vehicles and street furniture. This phenomenon has apparently begun in the early 1990s.
In Germany, scratching is especially prevalent in Berlin, Munich and the whole Ruhr-Area where literally no public transportation train car is without scratched windows, despite traffic companies spending 12 million € on repairing and exchanging scratched windows in 2005 alone.
During the 2006 FIFA World Cup, numerous visitors complained about the scratched windows."
