The idea behind my font is having a shape then bending it round continuously without any breaks/gaps to create the letterforms. I have always enjoyed working with circles through out my design work and it so happened to be a recurring theme through out my font. I experimented many ways on creating circles using FontStruct - this proved difficult. I did some research on how other designers created their circular based fonts. Many used the circle bricks by nudging and layering to create an illusion of a circle. I feel that my font could be used both large and small scale. In large scale you can see the non-smoothness of the curves and makes it seem caterpillar like which may appear ugly to some. In small scale it is the opposite - the circles appear perfect and the curves look smooth. My font is very simple which makes it legible to read in both scales.

Angst was inspired by simplistic and alternative typefaces from multiple artists around the globe. I wanted to create something that was nice and clean, but still had it's own distinct style. Punk rock music also helped inspire me with the formation of each individual letter in this typeface.

i am currently studying graphic design at the university of the west of england (UWE). i chose to design a typeface derived from the word reflection. i looked at symmetry and geometric shapes when designing my font, i wanted to make it look simple, clean and effective so by using a large grid i created a bold text thats easily legible. personally i think the lowercase typeface works better when used in large body texts but the uppercase looks powerful when used for titles, logo's and informative text headings as its eye catching and different. fontstruct is full of complicated typefaces so i wanted to show the opposite; geometrefection is a great example of simple typefaces that can be created on fontstruct.This is a clone

According to typography, the specification of (DOT) newly conspired by Joel D. Valdez, is the abbreviated meaning of Design Open Type. (D) The characters have a: graphic design, picture, embellishment, and or impression in/&/or around each typeface structure. (OT) The typeface contains the usual meaning of Open Type.This is a clone

Inspired by the word 'dangerous' I have created a fontstruction based upon voodoo, ouija boards and back words writing. The font tends to include different shapes for instance 'crosses', some of these shapes have been inspired by typeface designer, Rudolf Koch 'book of signs'.

Since I am a big fan of minimalism and every time I begin to design something, my first approach is always to 'keep things simple'. So simplicity meets minimalism and here were have it. "sn Discontinued". Hope you'll like it. :)

UPDATE: As this is a work in progress I will be updating it from time to time. I have looked to make it more consistent.
The inspiration comes from Japanese culture. It represents two sides, the simple side that needs no explanation and the eccentric side of the culture
