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.

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.
Social Shadow has been constructed using the shadows of household cutlery from spoons to scissors, knives to bottle openers. The font is based around the theme 'gregarious', (of a person) fond of company, (of an animal) living in flocks/organised communities. The use of cutlery represents the daily ritual we perfom in our 'organised communities', a great social activity. The use of the shadow reminds us that all is only temporary.
I decided that turning a "usual black-on-white" font would be a good way to reverse a font; hence some glyphs are easier to understand than others. I think that artistic minds will enjoy the graphic feel of the quirkiness :)
For some a certain type of (future) text I'll use some of the more abstract looking glyphs as decorative inserts and frames.
The font's name is taken from The Emerald Tablet.
This font was created around the theme word 'unstable'. One definition of unstable is 'prone to psychiatric problems or sudden changes of mood', for which many people have to take medication. I created this font out of pills (medication) to symbolise the theme. It is intended to be used to raise awareness of the fact that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.
Based on the theme of malnutrition, this font uses chicken bones to structure its letter forms. The chicken bones represent the cycle of malnutrition that continues today in the fast food industry – how we mistreat and abuse chickens that we then eat, consequently malnourishing ourselves in the process. The font is based on a stencil font, which chicken bones where placed on top of, photographed, drawn and translated onto Font Struct to create the final product. The font is not designed as body text but is designed to be used for means that need a more impacting, visually striking and eye catching font.This is a clone
The main theme of this typeface is based on tension and the structure of muscle and muscle fibers. Originally I started off with the word energise and from there I looked at sugar and then the consumption of sugar which helps fuel your body and muscles. I then began to explore muscle forms and how it is structured around bones, ligaments and how it is intertwined. I then tried to translate this all into letterform.
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!
