This font was created around the theme word 'unstable'. One definition of unstable is 'prone to psychiatric problems or sudden changes of mood', for which many people have to take medication. I created this font out of pills (medication) to symbolise the theme. It is intended to be used to raise awareness of the fact that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.
In this typeface I have tried to represent a noise without using soundwaves.
Based on the word Thunderous, this font represents a storm. The pointy edges of the letters and their disformed shape are supposed to represent the loud and violent noise made by thunder. As there are three diffrent phases in a storm, loud, light and calm, I tried to represent those three states by combining diffrent letterforms to make it looks even more like a storm.
The font is designed for attention grabbing headers.
There are 3 other versions of this font: Thunderstorm, ThunderStorm Inverse and ThunderStorm Black.
This typeface design is a edited version of Pharoan Ultra Bold as it was heavy and bold which gave me more to do with it, the theme of the type is destruction.
I wanted to merge both Deconstructivism and Glitch Art into my typeface. By finalizing my idea I looked at how letters could be morphed by being pulled and pushed, what would it look like if the letter was to be dropped what shapes it could form - instead of taking parts away from it.
My theme was messy. I began looking into paint and the effect it can give when the ink runs out towards the end of the stroke. This led me to looking into graffiti and the 'messy' appearance it can give a place. I took photographs on my way home from Arnolfini of any typographic graffiti I came across and I traced the ones I was fond of. I particularly liked this one that had drips at a slight angle as it was written on a slant so I reproduced my own interpretation of it.
Working with the theme 'destructive', I have investigated how eating unhealthy food can cause plaque build up and lead to tooth decay. The detail and shading on the letters represent the erosion of a tooth when it starts to decay. The font would be used for more decrative purposes but could also be used in add campaigns that warn the genral public of tooth decay. Due to the font being eroded its self it would reflect the information in the add and could even go as far as sublininally sending a message to the veiwer a warning that their teeth could end up looing like this font.
