This typeface is based on the hand-painted names seen on the side of canal boats. The inconsistent, grainy texture of each letter is meant to represent the irregularities in using paint, for example the general wear and tear from the elements like chipped or peeling edges. This was my approach to the idea of “analogue” and a brief set to explore what that means. To me, in the context of the brief, analogue could be defined as possessing a nostalgic or "old school" quality- something replicated in an unauthentic manner in order to create a look-alike imitation of a time gone by. I focused on the old method of transport in Bristol: boats. To further this idea of a 'time gone by', I created this font in the set to look like ink stamped letters.This is a clone of 1st Draft of Analogue Fizz

Nothing special, it's just I realized that I submitted only two fonts. A third entry, where I flipped arcs of lowercase letter "o" and took it from there. The result is an alien futuristic font that some generations might use in the future. Erutuf is Future backwards.
Another of my many doodles. Fun to make!
Finally, a design where all the diacritics blend in and look natural!
5x5 sunburst design. I think it can be made more legible, but I'm not sure if it can be done without sacrificing style...
