My first fonstruction is based around the theme of malnutrition, but focuses on lesser acknowledged end of the spectrum, over-nutrition. I took inspiration from nature of skin and fat on overweight or obese bodies, putting emphasis on the folds and bulges you might typically see on the skin of a larger frame.
Black Duck is a typeface that is inspired from modern-blackletter typeface and duck characteristics combined. Duck meat's crispiness and strong taste, and the duck figure itself are the main characters inserted in the making of this typeface. The slanted figure shows its timeless and versatile characteristics.
Inspired by fountain-based architecture, I've created my first fontstruction for the start of my UWE Graphic Design course. For this, I poured water onto different surfaces/objects with varying shapes to capture the cascading effect as reference images. Originally, I was first inspired by watercolour strokes to make a gradient effect, which developed into the idea of water fountains used in contemporary architecture.
