A half-assed font drawn by hand on a trackpad, allowing at most one re-do if the results were completely unusable, otherwise going with it. Not a serious font by any means. But could serve a purpose, such as low resolution digital graffiti.

Hi! My name is Patricia and I study Graphic Design at UWE. As part of my project I decided to use decay as the theme for my font. I started my research by photographing old building, rusty metal, broken brick, etc. Then I started experimenting and looking at other decay fonts, this is when I decided that I didn't want my font to have the typical broken appearance. So I decided to go for more of a scratchy, rough and uneven font. This is a clone

The idea of this typeface came from my theme of lazy. I first looked at what makes someone lazy and how the world that we live in today as made us this way. We want to achive minimal effort in all that we do and never want to do things ourselves anymore. From this I came up with the idea of buttons. Buttons are to make our life easier for example instead of pushing the door open we press a button to do this for us, which in my opinion is very lazy. We don't realise these buttons are here making us lazy we just go about our daily life not noticing the difference. I also put the buttons on thier side to give more of that lazy, can't be bothered to stand up feel about it.

The idea of this typeface came about from my theme of lazy, I first looked at what makes someone lazy looking at the different positions the human form makes when sitting or standing in a lazy way. I then had the idea of a potatoe couch someone who hardly moves around, fat,podgy and takes minimal effort in achiving things. I took pictures of people in these sort of positions to know what sort of shapes I wanted to achieve. My letters have no elements in to make it look even more fatter, they are very blocked,bold and done in a careless way to give more of that lazy impression. I also made the seperation of the letters very small as they are too lazy to even move apart from each. The ways in which I would use this typeface is maybe in fast food industry brands or to be controvertial in healthy foods to make the point of what being lazy will make you into.
