Voltage is a thick, bold, and sharp typeface that makes you feel that electric spark through your body. This typeface was inspired by many of my interests such as gaming and rock/metal music. I wanted to create a typeface that really expresses who I am down to my hobbies in addition to art. Voltage can be used in headers or logo for music albums, video games, or even energy drinks. The sharp edges and slice through the side of the glyphs gives the viewer and user that thrilling and dynamic charge!
I constructed this font with the idea of wires 'trapping' the letters. I wanted the font to be sans-serif, looking like Futura/Gill Sans. My theme was 'energetic' and at first I was looking more into food specifically and how we gain energy but then I took a different approach trying out different ways that I can portray electricity. Finally, I experimented with cutting out letters from pizza cardboard boxes and putting wires around them to try and make the digital fontstruct version look more realistic and accurate.
