'Walking' is a font I have created based on several aspects of the theme 'repetition'. I looked at the repetitive motions we act out as humans, such as walking across a path several times but in different manners, writing a sentence over and over again, and even aspects of a typefaces personality such as serifs which repeat over and throughout this font. I wanted the font to convey not only the personalities of those who repeat actions, but also that of myself and my own mannerisms through the mixtures between symmetrical and non symmetrical characters. I chose to keep this an uppercase typeface based on the way that text looks when it is all in caps - like someone is shouting; and this, again relates to my theme of repetition in that of monotonous volumes and voices. I really wanted to explore the physical connotations of repetition.
