We live in a world controlled by technology. As a creative professional I rely on tech to perform my primary business activities, whilst I am extremely pro-technology, I also recognise the negative impacts it has on society.
The theme for this project is ‘Dangerous’.
Please feel free to use this font as you wish, I would appreciate being told in advance as I love to see my work in use.

This font was created based originally on the word 'Gregarious'. From that I researched Social Housing in the UK. These are spaces designed to house many people for as cheap as possible. I used compound blocks to create complex detailed flats that stack up as high as a tower block usually would.
This font draft was created with the theme of massive, I wanted to create something that looked physically imposing and noticeable. To create the structure, I looked at buildings and cityscapes around the busiest parts of Bristol City and wanted to play with perspective as if the viewer was standing beneath a building and looking up at it, I ended up making a font that reflected the uniformity and scale of buildings.This is a clone
I designed my font around the theme ‘Elegant’ studying the Crown Jewels that are owned by the British Royal Family. I focused on the structure within each jewel and particularly was interested in how the light catches on certain shards within the stones. My initial idea was to shade each of the sections using a different colour, however this proved difficult with the ‘Fontstruct’ software. Eventually instead of shading with different colours I shaded uses the small dots to create a stipple effect which I believe to still be just as effective.
