This is a font that I have designed during the first term of my Graphic Design degree at UWE Bristol. My typeface is based on the word 'decay'. My letters take the form of teeth, these teeth have been decayed and have holes, cracks and rot on the actual tooth and roots. I developed this typeface by researching and taking photographs of rotten and healthy teeth. I then traced and made sketches from them. I then distorted the shapes to make up my type. This typeface could be really good for use in a dental industry for advertising against tooth decay or things like toothpaste etc..


This is crazy good!

You might want to adjust the width of the space, though. Make the letter spacing visible in "View", then adjust it.
