My theme was messy. I began looking into paint and the effect it can give when the ink runs out towards the end of the stroke. This led me to looking into graffiti and the 'messy' appearance it can give a place. I took photographs on my way home from Arnolfini of any typographic graffiti I came across and I traced the ones I was fond of. I particularly liked this one that had drips at a slight angle as it was written on a slant so I reproduced my own interpretation of it.
The font is based around the theme 'messy'. Each letter is inspired by messy paint/ink strokes; therefore no letter is exactly the same as another. However they all work well as a whole complementing eachother with small similarities. The font is designed to be used for headers, for example art posters or flyers. It could be used for big bodies of text, however slightly less suitable as it may become harder to read if it's made too small. The font could also be used in any colour and still grab attention!
Based on the relationship between ink and water, experimenting with the way the two liquids merge and the variation of patterns they create. The font does not follow one distinct pattern, it displays the variation of impressions these two fluids can create. The typeface is a display font, not designed to be used for large bodies of text.
