The word 'Messy' led me to consider my personal habits, especially my hair. Through exploring my own photography of hair arranged to form basic letter structures, I considered texture, shape and tone. Further research and discussion introduced a resmblance with 'Black Letter' type ie. thickness in line. Therefore, I combine hair aspects with the traditional typeface. I believe my creation successfully modified the well known font by introducing more complex curves while still acknowledging the original theme.

A pixel font inspired by the De Stijl artistic movement of the early 20th century in the Netherlands. The graphic works and experiments of artists Theo Van Doesburg and Vilmos Huszar were a huge influence.
