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!

Font based on the theme of decay. I started by looking at the decaying buildings, working from photographs of tired brick and worn surfaces. I made some rubbings from text on the side of a building and this is what the main font outline is based on. I wanted to create a worn font, with an almost burnt texture to replicate the worn and disintegrating buildings I started with. The name comes from text on the side of a building and I think the textures of decay can be beautiful.This is a clone
