This is my first attempt at using Fontstruct, my aim was to create a typeface representing the word 'Fluid'. I played around with some ideas by looking at how reflections and water held in a bottle can distort something's appearance, looking at the nature of running water and rain drops run down windows. I noticed how randomly liquids can move in an open space and how there really are no repeated patterns in its movement if you look closely. To get my final outcome I tried writing out the alphabet with nail varnish and glue which gave a really blotchy effect and sometimes gaps in the letter, which I then combined with the nature of rain drops running down windows to get a really wobbly letter form.

An interesting concept, well executed.

However, it looks as though the nail varnish ran out a wee bit on the S, X, Y and Z. Perhaps they would benefit from being a bit stronger.
