The word 'Messy' led me to consider my personal habits, especially my hair. Through exploring my own photography of hair arranged to form basic letter structures, I considered texture, shape and tone. Further research and discussion introduced a resmblance with 'Black Letter' type ie. thickness in line. Therefore, I combine hair aspects with the traditional typeface. I believe my creation successfully modified the well known font by introducing more complex curves while still acknowledging the original theme.

Looks interesting. I would suggest greatly reducing the overall letter spacing, and widening the space character – this would make your design more usable and easier to appreciate.

A nice approach to blackletter design with an effective twist (of hair ;) ) Letter space: if letters are far from the blue vertical line approach them ;) if not move the green "width" line to the left (menu>view>letter width)
