The design behind my font was inspired by the theme 'continuous'. This is a continued design from my past font which I was not completely happy with. Instead of using continuous circles I decided to use square and rectangular shapes. One of my main inspirations was the retro game Tetris. My font would work better in large scale as it is so bold.
This geometric font was built up from the theme of a continuous typeface. After developing sketched ideas and experimenting on fontsrtuct I became aware or a continuous theme throughout my font design of continuous lines and geometric shapes. This led me to research type designers and artists such as El Lissitsky's use of shapes to portray political messages, Herbert Bayer's rounded font style, Paul Renner's original architype fonts's unusual abstract designs and finally Matt W Moore's modern geometric typefaces which heavily influenced my designs. This can be seen through the abstract use of shapes inspired by El Lissitsky which can be seen in the letter M, H and V. Aspects of Matt W Moore can also be seen in my designs from his Alphafont 2 and 3 on the use of lines for the letters M, H and Z, and his use of shapes which are seen in the letters A and V. With inspiration coming from a range of times, artists and typographers this gives the font a feel of old and new. As it looks like it could be inscriptions on tombs and pyramids but also has a futuristic sci-fi appearance. Therefore the use of this font could be used for film posters and books of a setting in the future or ancient Egyptian or Greek past.This is a clone of Continuous1
