The theme I chose was 'Decorative'. It's my first font that I have created using Fontstruct and is based around an iron fence that I came across that was very art deco. I initially used a lot of circles, and then found the font wasn't legible when constructed like this. As a result I used minimal circles of the same thickness to the rectangles for the basic structure. I left spaces when joining them which I thick modernises the font as well as the varied height of the crossbars. Which was determined but the width of certain shapes. I used the typeface Arial as my basic foundation for this font as it is simple and for starting off on fontstruct, recreating Arial is comfortably achievable using the shapes provided.

Based on the word 'order', my type design comes from the idea of books. Books are typically ordered neatly on a bookshelf, yet they also have an underlying sense of representing an educated 'order' within society, and in many ways connoting heavily with the court and justice. I found it very hard to get the angles I wanted in relation to the design I had hand drawn and it took me a long time to even try and get it to look vaguely right. It was stressed to me to keep away from pixels, so I had to work with the angles that Fontstruct gave me. Having also been given some feedback, I did some experimentation in terms of making the letters look more like books; using shading, lines and boxes but none of them had a successful outcome so I stuck to what I think looks best and right. There have been many challenges in creating this typeface but I am fairly pleased with the current outcome.

This Fontstruct is similar to Arial at pt9 (Size="1" in Browsers). Arial often starts breaking down beneath 10pt, especially in Adobe Flash. Using this Fontstruct instead will yield in a much clearer readout while retaining the familiar Arial characteristics.
"More Latin" and "Extended Latin A" Characters sets are included!
