Albatros is the result of a research on the correlation between genius and mental instability in great artists, philosophers and poets. As in Baudelaire's poetry, it symbolises those who are misunderstood and thus isolated and derided. The albatross is a clumsy bird, but once in the sky and raised over the mass it shows everyone its great wingspan. We are all albatrosses until we are given the opportunity to discover the wings power.
This is a font inspired by the word 'systematic'. My main influence when creating this font was archiecture and the form of buildings. I focused strongly on lines and the grid system as I felt this really fit the theme of 'systematic' and archiecture as both remind me of acting according to a fixed plan or system; methodical.This is a clone
Inspired by fountain-based architecture, I've created my first fontstruction for the start of my UWE Graphic Design course. For this, I poured water onto different surfaces/objects with varying shapes to capture the cascading effect as reference images. Originally, I was first inspired by watercolour strokes to make a gradient effect, which developed into the idea of water fountains used in contemporary architecture.
(Due to the size of the letters, looks a lot better zoomed in!)
This font was created around the theme of 'filthy' and 'decay'. The final design was inspired by fungus spores and bacteria at a microscopic level. I took inspiration from existing fonts -Norway Round- and -Cubano-.
This retro font was created around the theme of instability. My inspiration came from pixel video game graphics, patterns and glitching which were used to construct my alphabet.
This font was created around the theme of 'elegant'. I chose to focus on the elegance of flowing fabric and drapery, so designed these letters inspired by classical depictions of fabric in paintings and marble sculptures.
For my first project for the type introduction, I was set the challenge based of an initial project topic. My exploration originally consisted of looking at the word 'Filthy' further on to 'Dirty'. For my first step of topic exploration, the word Dirty initially related to looking at fast foods and oily foods eg. 'dirty burger' after looking at this I created a more indepth, zoned in idea of Diabetes. My final font has been drawn from the idea of looking at chemical structures of insulin and their bonds.
This font was inspired by the images seen from the Hong Kong protests and the use of the umbrella as a symblom for there movement. I made the font based of pre exsisting letter forms to show china's forceful additions to Hong Kong law.

Graphic is a simple font that is best used for big text.
This type was made in our class of typhografy, we are from Portugal and we want to show you our work. This font have very elegant forms and contrast between stems, so that's why our font called "alterna" that means alternate in english. It's apropriate for tittles but you can use it for other things only as long as it's bigger than 20pt.
My fontstruct is based on the theme of theatre. The designs were achieved from my observations of some theatres in Bristol, as well as further research online. The main inspiration came from the achitecture around the stage curtains, which then lead me to a more art-deco style appoach.
This font is based of the theme 'gregarious'. For this I looked into coral reefs and sea anemone, then developed ideas through print making with acrylic paint and sponges. The type face is inspired by the flowing nature of the sea anemone and how some sea creatures/ plants grow upwards towards the sun. Eventually the type began to look more like flames/ smoke than a plant, which I decided to focus on instead. This shows how a project can completely change from the initial idea and just how it is important to always develop further taking into account others opinions and thoughts.
'Fold' was inspired by the theme 'energetic', and coveying movement within a form that doesn't move. I thought about how things fold, creating this type face in which the letters follow the same 'folding' movement.
Distressed is an uppercase font focusing on the theme destruction. Within this element I looked more specifically at mental health and how social media has an affect on our mental wellbeing. I created a cracked and distressed effect on each individual letter to visually express the pressure and insecurity we can experience from social media.
This font was designed around the theme word Elegant. I was inspired to create a typeface that was ornate and palatial; it is a ode to Baroque design.
I have tried to emulate columns for the body of the font and created a crowned frieze for some of the letters with decorative toppers for the remaining characters.
Alternate character set (to standard CBM) from Rolf Harris' Picture Builder. Given Rolf's incarceration for sex offences, I chose to name the font "Wobble Board" after the musical instrument he devised in 1959.
Lower case is pixeled, upper case is me experimenting with the blocks (first time I've used block-stacking). This character set didn't use punctuation, it was designed for building pictures character by character; I've preserved a couple of the graphic characters, but also imagined a few glyphs based on the thick lettering style. I like the look of these thick letters with proportional spacing so that's what we have.
The hash symbol (#) can be used to build a brick wall.
2050 La humanidad está al borde de la extincion. Unos exploradores encuentran unos antiquísimos manuscritos.
Contrante foi criada em contexto académico e tem como principal objetivo ser projetada para títulos e manchetes. Tendo como ideia chave o alto contraste e tentando ser fiel a este princípio, o seu design baseia-se sobretudo nos cortes bem definidos que dão origem a caracteres com pontas afiadas, nas suas acentuadas curvaturas e no confronto entre linha bastante carregada e os espaços vazios que acabam por atenuar e suavizar a fonte transmitindo uma sensação de leveza.
O nome, Contrante, foi pensado a partir da junção entre as palavras "contraste" e "elegante"; palavras estas que são consideradas como pontos fortes presentes entre os elementos que formam cada tipo.
This is a font that I designed in relation to the word ‘unstable’. My font is inspired by the classic block game Jenga where players take in terns to pull a block hopefully not knocking over the tower. With this font, I am trying to communicate that although something might look stable, one subtle movement could cause it to come tumbling down.
My new typeface 'Coup de ruban' represents the beauty of human movement through interpretive dance. I decided to name my elegant font 'ribbon stroke', but in French, as French is seen as a beautiful language. The thin, curved flourishes follow the movements of the dancer Megan Batoon's hands and feet when dancing to her own choreography. The thick strokes represent ballerina ribbon which ground the flourishes to create a bold, yet elegant display font. -Sam
bowl and counter is a typeface created with variety of geometric shapes,
which has a squishy and playful side of personality.
It was inspired by the well-known design Sinaloa Rosemarie Tissi in the 1970s.
I was really captivated by the beauty of adding elements of geometric shapes into basis letters, and I really wanted to recreate in the letter's bowls and counters by presenting them a technical, modern, and a futuristic flair look.
