This font was inspired by an old card series my mother produced quite a few years ago, based around the zodiac signs.
The theme behind this font was “rebirth”, in the sense of giving new life to something long forgotten. The cards themselves were quite popular at the time, so I felt this was an appropriate response to the theme.
The main difference within this set is the chosen challenge to not incorporate large curves or angles through the glyph set, giving the font a style of its own whilst still drawing inspiration from the original. The final outcome was something I would associate with computers, showing the change away from traditional type drawing to the modern age.
Celtic calligraphy font with spiral detailing inspired by the triskelion symbol. The concept behind the symbol and therefore the typeface is of rebirth - and more specifically the cycle of life, death and rebirth - symbolised by the spiral motifs.
Revive is the first Iteration of a font inspired and designed to celebrate a rebirth in urban environments. I focussed on using simple geometric shapes and simplifying the feeling I wanted to convey with my font. By moving the x height of the letters really close to the cap height I tried to recreate the illusion of perspective, as if you were looking at a building from an “ants eye view” This helped convey a feeling of growth and structure representing the re-birth of nature and cities together. I tried to add an organic element of growth to the letters by using squares, I think it adds contrast to the typeface but can be difficult to interpret.This is a clone
Based on the theme of rebirth, ‘Fill in the blanks’ draws inspiration from the Renaissance era. Looking at the original printing press, traditional blackletter and Renaissance calligraphy, ‘Fill in the blanks’ offers a modern twist on some of the oldest typefaces to date. By looking at the brush strokes of blackletter and the serifs used in the printing press typefaces, this font is a combination of these characteristics. By using just these features the human eye can still recognise the letter form, essentially allowing your mind to ‘Fill in the blanks.’
As a first year Graphic Design student at UWE, I have made my first attempt at a fonstruction, creating a font based around the theme of 'rebirth'. I have researched and explored the Japanese art form: Kintsugi which involves the restoration of broken pottery through connecting the broken parts with liquid gold, creating something new and unique. This art form allows us to embrace the beauty of flaws and imperfection, and through each letter I have attempted to recreate the rough, jagged lines of the broken pottery, and the cracks of 'gold' which bind them together (shown through the white lines). Any comments/advice would be really appreciated.
This is my first typeface as a first-year graphic design student at UWE. It has been created based on the theme ''Rebirth''. Inspired by the Renaissance which means ''rebirth'' in French the typeface is a transition from the old to the new. It is also connected to moon phases as a symbol of rebirth and change. The typeface is a combination of sharp elements and smooth shapes, has some futuristic and traditional motifs. Each letter is unique and can be used by itself or in a text with the others. Any comments are welcomed.
A font based on the cut out letter style used in punk aesthetics, but brought into the modern day with a pixelated style. Inspired by the theme of rebirth.
This font began with the theme of rebirth and the idea of sending people to the next life. This lead me to looking into Egyptian Mummies and Mummification. I noticed intricate and careful wrappings of some of the mummies and decided to incorporate some of these patterns into the font.
Working under the theme of 'Rebirth', I have focused my first font on the idea of post-war architecture, or otherwise commonly known as modernist/brutalist architecture. Buildings constructed following the Second World War were built using new technologies of construction. These types of designs were known for their use of modern materials such as concrete and steel as well as their interesting geometrical forms. I was heavily influenced by the architecture featured in Owen Hopkins' book 'Lost Futures' which looks at the disappearing architecture of post-war Britain and how changing external contexts played a role in the subsequent destruction of these buildings.
This font was created for my Foundtype project at UWE where I chose the theme of Rebirth. It draws inspiration from the traditional Blackletter Olde English style calligraphy fonts of the seventeen hundreds however, I’ve put a retro digital spin on it by making it pixelated which shows my theme choice as it’s the Rebirth of this traditional font.This is a clone
My font is inspired by Navajo rugs and blankets and the main theme I went with was ReBirth. I thought this was fitting as the Navajo people create these rugs to tell a story of there beliefs and religion, which has been implemented in this font but instead, the words can tell the story and the design is inspired by the Navajo rugs and blankets.
The theme for my typeface is rebirth, specifically within nature. Upon research I found myself really interested in natures patterns formed through rebirth, be it shown through roots or a plant shooting out into light. I wanted to recreate an abstract version of this through my typeface, to give the illusion of growth.

-" Constructivism's central idea is that human learning is constructed, that learners build new knowledge upon the foundation of previous learning" Phillips, 1995.
This is my first Construction based on the theme of "Rebirth". I chose this theme as I wanted to investigate how a country is "reborn" after a war or a revolution. This led me to read an article about graphic design ideas that came from the Russian Revolution. One of them was Constructivist typography-combination of contrasting shapes and sizes. I looked at the work of El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko. From this research I began to cut out shapes of different sizes and began to construct letters- however, this idea didn't translate well in FontStruct. To widen my research, I looked at Constructivist and Soviet Brutalist architecture which my font was inspired by. It reflects buildings like the Polytechnic Institute of Minsk, The Palace of Ceremonies, and the Georgian Ministry of Highways in Tbilisi.
This is my first typeface made in Fontstruct and it is a part of my degree. The theme of the project is “Rebirth”. With this Fontstruction I am trying to revamp some of the typefaces being used for headlines and drop caps in books or newspaper. I am aiming for a more boxy and modern look, by some separations in the structure of the letters. My main inspiration came from sci-fi books and encyclopedias.
Here is my first fontstruction coming to you from a graphic design student at UWE Bristol.
This font is based around the theme 'rebirth' and to me rebirth means growth, open-minded, seeing the world in new ways- an awakening.
So I went down the path of spiritual journeys. Throughout lockdown I have been listening to the one and only, Joe Rogan and his podcasts. Many of which discuss the topic of psychedelics and how they have changed peoples perspectives on life - positively. I then took these topics and found my 'Rebirth'
This font represents; psychedelics, trance and being in the state of stupor...
This type face was created inspired by the theme ‘rebirth’. It took a lot of hand rendered type and photographical experimentation to create a font that I believe captures people coming together through rebirth whether that’s in a spiritual means or something else. I began by photographing people linking together to create shapes in the form of letter with their bodies. After drawing from the photographs, I decided to take a more abstract approach and applied this to my sans serif font.
