My font Slash, is based off of the theme "protect". I chose to base my type on different swords including fantasy based designs. The tip and edges of the letters are based on different sort of tips on swords. This gives my font a sharp and dangerous feel which links to swords.
This font was created from the theme of 'protect'. Originally looking at bone structures i then adapted it to feet as they provide a degree of protection from the things we walk on. They are also what enable us to walk and move giving us balance and support.

This typeface is based around the theme of 'Protect', using banana peels to create letter forms. I physically manipulated banana peels into shapes of letters, using these as references to create quirky and fun sans-serif letters.
I created this hand written font based around one of the most protective materials used by parents to safeguard their children, specifically cotton wool balls. I arranged the cotton balls to create the structure of each character and then scanned the image into the computer to create the digitilised version. I decided I wanted to create the font in a handwritten, childish/immature style taking inspiration from the logos and typography used on children's books and shops.
This is my take on the theme of protect. My aim was to make my font look like chains.
This typeface was galvanized from the word 'protect', with the letters made up of spikes influenced by the spikes on the skin of animals such as hedgehogs and porcepines which protect them from predators, and the spikes on plants which protect them in the same way.
A block, graffiti inspired, font with sprays of imperfection and an urban aesthetic. The letters are structured equal in width and length and are all designed in capital. The graphic elements both inside and outside the typeface enhance a "technologically programmed" (pixelated) feel to the overall font.
A display font inspired by one of the UK's first and most influential free-party sound systems- Spiral Tribe. They helped create a culture of freedom and expression through art and music which was heavily (and still continues to be) suppressed by the Police. They used tribal patterns frequently in their artwork, which is the reasoning behind the spiral shapes within the letters.
The weights are varied throughout the letters to make it more playful and psycholdelic, as the rave culture is against agression and force used frequently against them by the police. New age travellers embrace harmony- which is why the letters are sized so that they work together in words to create a wider pattern.
The theme of this font is "to protect an inner child of a person." However, many possible categories could go with my chosen theme, so I decided to focus on children's doodles. These are made up of random scribbles, shapes, and lines that seem incoherent but are still legible enough to know what they're conveying.
My typeface is based on barbed wire as its only use is to protect what it's surrounding, which led to this idea. The visual elements of this include the body of each letter where I've tried to portray a double wired twist. The most telling features are the spiked parts.
For this font I was given the theme of “Protection” and told to go wild. At first it was a struggle to think of something that related to this, however I knew that I wanted it to be tied to the leak of personal information. I thought of being at work and scrunching up peoples left over receipts before throwing them, and doing the same to letters with my name and address on, therefore, this is what I did with the whole alphabet. I wrote each letter on a small sheet of paper and scrunched it up before photographing what I could see of the letter and transferring that to Procreate and later Fontstruct.

"SEAWEED' is a decorative font inspired through my research into the protection of the oceans. Through this research I was intrigued by the way that a simple thing like planting seaweed could possibly hold the key to reversing ocean acidification.
Following the theme "protect" my typeface is based off something one might want to protect themselves from - spiders. I have tried to imitate spiders legs through this font to create an unnerving "feel" about it.
This display typeface was inspired by the return to traditional Celtic iconography within the insular manuscripts of 6th Century Britain. Each letter is highly ornamented, incorporating chains of interlinked geometry that translate the flowing forms of Celtic knots into the grid based format of Fonstruct.
My typeface “Shields” is the response to my font brief theme of “Protect”. I was inspired by Celtic shields, specifically their use of patterns and their practical design.
My typeface was created around the theme ‘Protect’. I linked the word protect to conservation so decided to go down a nature theme. I like pixelated fonts and I thought the leaves looked good pixelated.
This typeface has been created surrounding the theme ‘Protect’. I took inspiration from the physical format of bubble wrap, which is why this font is made up of dots. I focused on the 3D aspect of it being unravelled - how it is thicker when rolled up, and thinner when unravelled.
The typeface mimics a shadow at a 45 degree angle. This can be seen in the slanted increase in thickness at the bottom, contrasting the thinness of the top.
"Crypt" Is a gothic, serif font, inspired by the decorative and intricate details within many cathedrals and church architecture, influenced by such features such as stained glass, gargoyles, petroglyphs and spires.
A simple alphabet composed of music notes/symbols to help present the idea of protecting your voice with music. Inspired by music history and the opression of the slave trade where they communicated through song.
This font is designed for UWE's Graphic Design Course. The linear and straight nature of the font is meant to mimic the everyday use of barbed wire for protection, the prompt for this assignment. Major revisions were made to the design of the typeface to make it in fontstruct, including the removal of details and simplification of the letterforms Currently working on making the font typeable, thank you for your patience!
