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 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.
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 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.
Escalibur is my font that takes inspiration from medival weaponry. Mimicking the sharp blade like formations found on swords and axes during the 1400's, whilst also refrencing the type and imagery seen on playing cards, typically featuring symbols assosiated with chivalry.
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.
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.
In response to the topic of, 'Protect', my design was influenced by the net bags used to hold fruit. I was intrigued by the pattern and textures that these made so wanted to created a typeface focusing in on this.
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.
'Nerves' is a font created based on my given theme 'PROTECT'. I chose to create a thin and messy typeface, inspired by nerve structures and the protection our nervous systems provide. I wanted there to be overlapping lines and 'bursts' that mimic how nerves look, as well as capturing the more disorganised nature of a nerve.
My design was influenced by walls, barriers, and the requirement for a division between our built and natural environments in order to protect us. I am a first-year student at UWE Bristol studying Graphic Design, and I made this digital typeface in response to this year's subject, "PROTECT."
This is my font, made from the prompt 'Protect.' Each letter is supposed to represent the Biblically Accurate Angels that you can find in pop culture. Biblically Accurate Angels are horrifying, incomprehensible eldritch beings, made up of countless eyes and wings. Therefore, in my font, I wanted to embody that idea, hence my letters are made up of a series of random, convoluted shapes and eye like imagery.
This font was create around the theme Protect. I explored different areas within this theme and thought of claiming sanctuary in a church during medieval times and how that was a major form of protection. I constructed the letterforms using shapes I’d drawn from church floor plans and gothic architecture.
The inspiration for this font was the word "protect". After brainstorming and exploring various different ideas, one being fruit peel, I landed on this the theme of the Celtic knot. The sheild knot in the Celtic culture is known for its strenght and protection. It resembles a woven texture as is seen in the font above. The main purpose for the font Chosaint (Irish for "protect") is to be used in large title text.
My font is based on the Ministry of Transportation building in Georgia. The building itself is inspired by Japanese Metabolism architecture. Which is a moventment inspired by growth and adapabilty. I wanted my font to feel as though you could stack and change it just like Metabolism architecture.
Inspired by the idea of how newspapers are printed to protect us, I've created my first fontstruction for the start of my UWE graphic design course. I drew the letters by hand using black ink and a quill that sort of created this idea of the ink that is used in newspapers. Therefore, creating this abstract font design.
This is my fonstruction based on the theme protect. I decided to go with the topic of glass. I was thinking about the different materials surrounding protection and thought glass suited the idea best as it protects many things in our everyday lives. I experiemnted with this topic by looking at the different types of glass and how they could be smashed or broken. I took and image of a broken wine bottle and tried to make the letters look like those specific pieces.
I created this font with the word 'protect' in mind. I narrowed down the meaning of the theme to roads and tyres. I tried to apply this to a typeface.
This bold, swirling font draws its inspiration from the theme of 'Protect'. Within this theme, I looked into how people use crystals to protect their aura, soul, and mental and physical health. I thought about the contrasts that crystals have - smooth, curved and polished but also jagged and rough. I created pixelated curves using fontruct bricks to emulate this as well as adding the 'shine' that crystals give off.
This typeface attempts to capture the movement of a rose's stem, done through the its natural curls and the inclusion of thorns. These thorns are what protects the typeface itself, just as a rose protects its flower.
