My first brief I received for Graphic Design at UWE was based on the theme "Wicked". Through lots of studies of branches, dead trees, witches and "Wicked" things. I developed a serif font with branchlike and natural features which resemble a spooky forest like in fairy tales. Many references can be linked to Disney movie fonts like Alice in Wonderland.
This typeface has stemmed from the word ‘unstable’. The adjective mainly holds negative connotations, which is why I explored the dynamic impact of cracks in pavements and how they are unpredictable and disruptive. I also focussed on how the cracks appear as roots when experimenting with font. This brings a more positive light to ‘unstable’, combining both man-made cracks and natural roots to create a font resembling root heave.
Spiky shapes and sticks that point in all directions: just take a twilight walk trough a forest in the fog.
The name is Hungarian as we have Hungarian connection in the family and among friends. It means my forest spirit.
Display font. Built on the basis of a module: a pair of leaves. If you count the number of leaves in a letter, you get a lot, and if you count the number of leaves in words, you get a whole forest. Therefore, the font is called "Forest".
52 characters for the basic Latin set, 10 numerals, 36 punctuation characters, 66 characters for the Russian language set
Please let me know what do you think :)
Mandeljot is the idea of simplicity. What you are looking for is deeper, it doesn’t just appear upon the surface. The font being based upon a basic San Serif type only enhances the real fluidity of the fractal. There’s a series of repetition within the letters, at a glance it is hard to understand want the font is trying to portray or connected to. Nature, diversity, humanity or even practicality. The ability to glare and focus on the question of the font is the importance, it’s elegant yet so real. With flourishes being created through shading. The form of it being fractals makes it look delicate. It’s meant to represent something within everyday life that is “Beautiful, damn hard, useful’ design. Mandelbrot should be used within Nature/Technology/Sound/Structures/Art/Law.This is a clone of Mandeljot
First there is a flourish, in which the beauty of progression is materialised through growth. Followed by distortion and an imminent spoil - I was inspired by this cyclic process.
Angles cant quite define this typeface, so 'Spoiler' as a decorative font chooses to ignore certain standardisation rules; each letter tries to recoil back into what came before.
The lettering, as I discovered through paper manipulation and layering, works organically off screen, for collage and mixed media poster design.
