This font was created from the theme of 'protect'. Originally looking at bone structures i then adapted it to feet as they provide a degree of protection from the things we walk on. They are also what enable us to walk and move giving us balance and support.
- I have yet to complete it -
This typeface was galvanized from the word 'protect', with the letters made up of spikes influenced by the spikes on the skin of animals such as hedgehogs and porcepines which protect them from predators, and the spikes on plants which protect them in the same way.
This font is inspired by padlocks and the notches in the metal loops. It was inspired by the idea of protection. I made the font thick and bold to represent the solidity of a padlock and to reflect the theme of protection.
For this font I was given the theme of “Protection” and told to go wild. At first it was a struggle to think of something that related to this, however I knew that I wanted it to be tied to the leak of personal information. I thought of being at work and scrunching up peoples left over receipts before throwing them, and doing the same to letters with my name and address on, therefore, this is what I did with the whole alphabet. I wrote each letter on a small sheet of paper and scrunched it up before photographing what I could see of the letter and transferring that to Procreate and later Fontstruct.

My design was influenced by walls, barriers, and the requirement for a division between our built and natural environments in order to protect us. I am a first-year student at UWE Bristol studying Graphic Design, and I made this digital typeface in response to this year's subject, "PROTECT."
This typeface was created on the main theme of 'Protection' that i later explored in the idea of fences and how they can protect us from the outside world. I wanted my letters to connect with one another creating the illusion of a fence and potraying unity.
With the given theme of Protection, I looked into the human immune system and the biological human features. Researching further into antibodies, I created a type face of the antibody structure which resembles the shape of a capital Y. Following symmetrical shapes and doubled lines, I created an alphabet that mimics the original structure of antibodies, with similar joints and angles.
