This san serif, textured, pattern, bold font is inspired by traditional Welsh weaved blankets. I was fascinated by the incredible pattern created by the traditional practice of blanket weaving. To create the structure of these characters I worked from researching weaving and knitting patterns and scanned it into the computer to embed the pattern into letters.
This font atempts to represent letters that look like what is called the "God's Eye" yarn project for children, which has to do with winding colorful yarn around two crossed sticks. I've decided to double the size so that the X and T have the same internal dimensions.
Initially made for NW & SW European members' languages this typeface has grown over time to include glyphs for most European languages. My friend Ray will be happy to see Welsh and my friend Johneen can write in Maori :)
Thanks to TCWhite I've found the 2E2E point to place my favourite punctuation/symbol correctly.
I've sent this to be rewiewed for Google Fonts. Having done so I'm stuck, I don't know how to proceed there: how can I get people to look at it, comment?!This is a clone of MasterClass 1
I have made this font based on the overall theme of dangerous. When exploring this theme further I started looking at venomous animals and specifically at Funnel Web spiders. The intricate funnel shaped webs that they made started off the initial designs for this font. I looked at the different patterns that the webs can make and made a web of my own to priduce the shapes that inspired this font.
For my weaving website I wanted a novel font. So here is FRIVOLITE, the shape is based on the beautifully shaped shuttle used for hand weaving. Indeed the O and 0 and @ show perfectly the shuttle shape. The other glyphs were made to fit (as far as reasonable) into this specific shape. I know that frivolité is knotting rather than weaving, but this shuttle shape can be found in weaving, too. An alternate N and Z is on 'extended Latin B'.
