Mltng Pnt is a typeface that took form from the word destructive. It's aim is to be an illustrative typeface that focuses on the destruction of the natural letter form. This process creates a lot of visual noise, distorting the viewers vision and adding to this sense of destruction on a more palpable level. The figures were inspired by melting butter, hence the name 'Mltng Pnt' (melting point). This name also suggests a point of no return, capitalising on the theme of destruction.
A re-design of Congealed. I based this design on the experiments I conducted on how the movement of various fluids differed on paper. I liked the Congealed typeface I created which is why I continued with this as the basis of each letter - I added in the viscosity by showing drips of various length. I feel that this gives the font an overall more interesting look and links directly to the theme fluid, which was the starting point of my project.This is a clone of Congealed
I wanted to celebrate my 5 years of FontStructing, so I looked for a special font among my older unpublished ones. I think this one fits the celebration.
The original text explains my inspiration, a 2-colour swirled soup I made for a special occasion:
When I saw the pattern created by gently pouring crême fraîche across the surface of spinach soup I simply HAD to make a font reminiscent of the flowing shapes and lines slowly spreading across the top and thinning out irregularly. This font looks fine with the standard sample text in smallest pixel size. The larger sized text looks more like the floating dissipating cream on the soup's surface :)
