Based on the theme of rebirth, ‘Fill in the blanks’ draws inspiration from the Renaissance era. Looking at the original printing press, traditional blackletter and Renaissance calligraphy, ‘Fill in the blanks’ offers a modern twist on some of the oldest typefaces to date. By looking at the brush strokes of blackletter and the serifs used in the printing press typefaces, this font is a combination of these characteristics. By using just these features the human eye can still recognise the letter form, essentially allowing your mind to ‘Fill in the blanks.’
This font was created for my Foundtype project at UWE where I chose the theme of Rebirth. It draws inspiration from the traditional Blackletter Olde English style calligraphy fonts of the seventeen hundreds however, I’ve put a retro digital spin on it by making it pixelated which shows my theme choice as it’s the Rebirth of this traditional font.This is a clone
Ornate has been created based of the theme 'Elegant'. Through the process of producing this typeface I carried out various experiments by hand exploring different styles of typefaces which showcased the concept of elegant; such as Calligraphy and refined san serif/serif typefaces. This serif typeface is my interpretation of elegance and represents the characteristics I explored through researching and experimenting. It’s simple, refined and confident.
My second attempt to make my own block set
This typeface form is adapted from a typical Indonesian street food meatballs, a round shape on typeface describes the shape of meatballs, which are round and always served in a bowl of beef broth. The distinctive taste of the meatballs is so enjoyable that it has always been a favorite food of Indonesian society.
Indonesian traditional meatball food's font style that inspired from shape of meatball itself.
Bumbu kacang is the actual name of Indonesian Salad’s (also known as gado-gado) peanut sauce. The round shape of the typeface inspired by the shape of lontong. The curvy part in the middle and the dots represent the peanut sauce.
This font is based on the combination of a local culture and a traditional food. With combining thick and thin strokes, with adding a little bit of "tail" on the end of every glyphs, this font have a certain goal, which is to show the beauty of a city called Lamongan which is famous for it's traditional food: Pecel Lele.
