My first typeface as part of my Graphic Design Project, my theme was Destruction, where I then considered digital glitch artThis is a clone
This typeface is part of a Graphic Design project at UWE and is based on the theme of unstable. I was interested in the way that liquid (such as paint) can change and move, sometimes in a way that we cannot control. I began by looking at the way paint reacted when placed on wet paper. I liked the element of chance involved in this process and to create this final typeface I let watered down paint fall and splatter creating broken patterns and uneven edges. I have tried to capture some of these patterns in this typeface.
I have created this font using the word "destructive" as a theme. After experimenting with a number of ideas I created this font by cutting it out of card in a distressed way, then projecting light through it on the wall, photographing the results and recreating the result in fontstruct. I feel as if my font could be used for a number of different things such posters or advertisement for art or music event.
‘Scrap Paper’ is a bold, display typeface inspired by the theme of compression. The letterforms were created from drawings of a distorted alphabet, formed by screwing up each letter printed onto a piece of paper, hence the name. The scrunched up type make for a ‘grunge’ feel, perfect for a large format, yet still visible when used at a smaller size.
