This geometric font was built up from the theme of a continuous typeface. After developing sketched ideas and experimenting on fontsrtuct I became aware or a continuous theme throughout my font design of continuous lines and geometric shapes. This led me to research type designers and artists such as El Lissitsky's use of shapes to portray political messages, Herbert Bayer's rounded font style, Paul Renner's original architype fonts's unusual abstract designs and finally Matt W Moore's modern geometric typefaces which heavily influenced my designs. This can be seen through the abstract use of shapes inspired by El Lissitsky which can be seen in the letter M, H and V. Aspects of Matt W Moore can also be seen in my designs from his Alphafont 2 and 3 on the use of lines for the letters M, H and Z, and his use of shapes which are seen in the letters A and V. With inspiration coming from a range of times, artists and typographers this gives the font a feel of old and new. As it looks like it could be inscriptions on tombs and pyramids but also has a futuristic sci-fi appearance. Therefore the use of this font could be used for film posters and books of a setting in the future or ancient Egyptian or Greek past.

A writing system for a language in development. The name is merely a provisional one, pending the completion of the language. Perhaps soon enough I will have a language to go with this alphabet...

Experimenting with the previous design Geo5x5 Round Slice 6 Final (sorry for long title, I've not really thought of a name as it was just for my record), by scaling the characters to a larger size.This is a clone of Geo5x5 Round Slice 6 Final Pattern 2
