Starting with just the theme of continuous, I created this typeface. I took inspiration from pieces of string and the video game snake. After some physical experiments, a lot of doodles and combing elements from different source, Continue was the outcome.
This typeface had the potential to look like a bad design and ridiculous in a lot of places typefaces are used. However if the typeface connects to the purpose of its use, I feel it would be very powerful. For example, if used for branding, it has a unique look to it, which is rememberable.
Although legible at both a large and small scale, I wish to continue Continue to a lower case set as i believe this will compliment the upper case letters better.
My theme was continuous i started to try and create letters using string making a one line letter, then many doodles and sketches later i started to looped the lines back around becoming more and more looped and decorative until i scoured through them all taking the best bits to combine them into 'Continuous'. Continuous is smooth flowing font thats designed to be a continuous line that loops back on its self to create the letter using a mixture of negative space and the shapes created by the line.
