The font Flomotion is the outcome to my first semester at UWE, studying Graphic Design. The task was to create a full typeface on the font building website, fontstruct.com. The final design had to relate to a chosen theme, my chosen theme for this project was Motion in which I pursued the subject of optical illusions. I liked the idea of trying to create a false sense of movement with a font, taking inspiration from existing optical illusions with the same effect. This then led me to look at the 'Op' art movement of the 1960's, in particular the extensive work of Bridget Riley. Her use of black and white line giving the illusion of depth had a big influence on my work and I think my final design reflects this.

Looks amazing so far. The C,D & A remind me of sea shells.

Absolutely awesome. And actually, now that Mr. Downey mentions it, those letters do look like sea shells. Brilliant work so far!

Looks like seashells? .... I had my ear pressed up to them waiting to hear the roar of the sea.

Beautifully sinuous - go with the flow!

Dazzling new design using distorted black and white stripes to achieve optical illusion, and stunning visual impact. The I, and parts of A,C,D,G etc. resembles to striped toothpaste. 10/10

Y is the only one which don’t flow as well as the rest.
Nevertheless, 10/10.

Thank you all very much for the feedback and the nice comments. I agree I do need to work back into a few of the letters that dont flow as well including Y.
