UWE 'Communicating With Words' Graphic Design project.
I chose to look at the theme 'Decay', and was inspired by Andy Goldsworthy, Anna Garforth, Daniele Del Nero, and natural occurrences such as rotting fruit and mould.
I grew mould and made observational sketches, experimenting with a range of drawing techniques.
I then drew out my font, and used graph paper to translate it into pixels.
I feel this font could be used for things such as health posters for sexual health or smoking advertisements, or in children's books, due to the natural rounded quality.

I created this font using the subject matter 'decay'. I am an amateur, having never used fontstruct before and only ever created hand rendered fonts or type via letter press this was a challenge! It is by no means perfect (I will finish the x,y and z shortly when my internet stops giving me grief). I have already tried to type this description several times but fontstruct persistently signs me out every time I reach a crucial stage in my production :( feel free to interpret how you wish! It is entitled burn but I believe and have been told that the patterns also resemble mouldy old fruit/veg and general decay - lovely!

This is my first attempt to use fontstruct, which is a project given to me during my first year of studying graphic design at UWE; Bristol.
Initially the typeface was inspired by the product of organic decay. I cut out strawberries, apples and tomatoes in the shape of letters and left them to decay on a sheet of paper. When removing them, they left an interesting stained mark on the paper which I used as my basis for the letter forms. Latterly I have used the typeface "Hobo Std" as inspiration because of it's curvaceous body and similarity to the remaining marks of the fruit and vegetables. It is a display font having because of it's better readability on larger sizes. This due to the stained effect as well as the letters are bold. This is a clone

First time using Fonstruct. Font designed around the theme of decay, focusing on derelict buildings and areas where nature has begun to take over. Whilst loosely based on the somewhat derelict font, Times New Roman.
Welcome any feedback.
(work in progress; mainly letter 'R')
