This is my first attempt to use fontstruct, which is a project given to me during my first year of studying graphic design at UWE; Bristol. Initially the typeface was inspired by the product of organic decay. I cut out strawberries, apples and tomatoes in the shape of letters and left them to decay on a sheet of paper. When removing them, they left an interesting stained mark on the paper which I used as my basis for the letter forms. Latterly I have used the typeface "Hobo Std" as inspiration because of it's curvaceous body and similarity to the remaining marks of the fruit and vegetables. It is a display font having because of it's better readability on larger sizes. This due to the stained effect as well as the letters are bold.

I really liked how you solved the glyphs in this work. From my point of view, the font would be more readable if you increase the space between words. Just a suggestion, but if you have time maybe you could try. Welcome to FS.

Thank you very much for your comments. How would I increase the space between words, is that the same thing as increasing the space between the letters?
Comment by Fanny Wacklin Nilsson 11th November 2010
Not exactly. Go to the space character, then click Advanced > View > Character Width then drag the green line to the right to increase space. I love the concept and the letter shapes especially the 'g'.

I increased the space with the green line, I can only see a slight difference though, do you think it is better now? Or should I increase even more? Thank you for your help
