This typeface is based on the theme of "Vibration". From the beginning I wanted to create a unique design, looking at sound I decided to use my voice as the starting point. After recording myself pronouncing the alphabet and uploading it to a sound editor I looked at the different shapes and patterns it created. This was my voice that was unique to me and was the inspiration for the typeface. I then researched fonts and looked at bold, chunky designs which could hold the pattern without taking too much away from the letter form as it was important to me that my design was still legible. I decided to use the corresponding sound with the letter (i.e. the A has my pronunciation of the letter running through it)making it different from anything I have seen before. Please comment and share your opinions. Thank You

This is the font I have designed for the first module in my Graphic Design degree at UWE Bristol.
My typeface is based on the word 'Energy'.
The design journey started with me looking into electrical energy, and the result (See: "Fused Font Thin") led me to explore magnetic energy patterns within iron fillings. Next, during the process of creating a magnetic energy typeface I saw similarities with sound waves in my designs, and so also tried to combine the two. The result was "Energy Vibration".
Lots of energy drinks were consumed for inspiration and staying up for hours trying to battle the server. Full character set now complete.
