This is Fracture my first font. My chosen theme for this project was ‘disintegrate’. I began by looking up synonyms for my theme and I explored them visually in my sketchbook, just basic pencil sketches of a handful of letters. I went for quite illustrative type with a simple structure – the effect layered over the letter. Whilst flicking through ‘typography sketchbooks’ I found some work I liked and considered to be a similar style to mine – urban influences. The letter works on a square of 10-34 across with a width of about 10 squares on the elements of the letter itself, although it varies on corners and joins which gives it a block or slab style. Because of the styling of the typeface I would say it’s use is in short texts or headings. It works better on small scales as on a larger scale the curves and disintegrating effect begin to pixelate.

I tried it, it was fine. When I down load things two yellow buttons pop up "true type font" and "glyphs file"

The glyphs one is for mac only, but I don't know that that neccesarily denotes that that's the one and only button macs should push.

Mine is a non-mac, so I click the "true type"

I then go to the control panel and open the "fonts" folder that is contained therein.

I open up in a separate window my "downloads" folder and find my "fractures" folder and open that up. I pull out the "fractures" font itself and drag that into that "font" folder that I mentioned earlier.

And then I try it out in a word processing program

So: abridged directions:
1: click "download" and then click "true type" or "glyph file" idk which

2: Open up your "downloads" inside that is your "fractures" file, in that is your "fractures" font (you'll need that)

3: open your control panel and in that should be your computer's fonts folders. Put "fractures" in there.

4: go to a word processing program and see if its available for you.

sorry. one other thing. After clicking "glyphs" or "true type" there might be a bar at the bottom giving you the option to "open" or "save". click Save.
