Hi! this typeface is made for my Typography final assignment. This typeface is inspired by one of Surabaya's most authentic food, which is sate kelapa/sate klopo/coconut satay(?)
The "curvy thing" at the end of every letter is inspired by the tail from one of Surabaya's most famous legend and mascot which is suro/sura/a shark precisely.
Feel free to give a comment/feedback. I'll really apreciate it :D
Thanks a bunch!
This font is not completed yet, and this font was made for school assigment. Please comment and vote. Thank you.
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.
This typeface was inspired by Indonesian food called 'Sate Kelopo'. In the corner of the stem there is a serif to show the ' serundeng' or called coconut from 'Sate Kelopo'. Between the stem and the stroke there is a gap to show that in each stick of the satay , there are 4-5 meats which stabbed one by one. And in every meats there is a little gap in it that show a gap between the stem and stroke.
Chic Cintu is a bold, with opened gaps between each letter form, and ribboned font. Cintu is a spanish word for ribbon.
This design was inspired by futuristic/space letters.
The round letters have a smooth outter edge while the inside still has it's sharp corners. The bits missing in the letters give it a separation and playful look.
