This font originated from the theme of "squishy". I took the literal term of this to begin with and played around with squishing a sponge into different letter shapes, however soon found out this did not work well with letters such as "R" which contains a hole. I therefore started to play around with putty and found that by pulling it apart it left a "flick". This related quite well to one of the blocks acutely being a "flick". I thought this "flick" could also represent when something is gloopy. I wanted my font to be fairly legible, so it has turned out very simple - the lower case more than the upper case as the grid I was working with was very small. The font is named "Séparé" meaning "separate" in french, as the main feature of the font is the "flick" formed when the putty or a gloopy substance such as cake mix is separated.
