An experimental slab-serif where the slabs are SQUARES and the crossbars are BONES. I'll add more to this one later.
"Squares & bones! That's all you need t' build a town!" - Reverend A. Beem
Malnourished- a display font. Malnutrition is a lack of proper nutrition, caused by not eating enough or by not eating enough nutritious food. This font was created to show the final effects of being malnurised; bones.
This typeface has come from the initial theme of malnourished, where I looked at using real bones to make a physical typeface. From this, I have developed my idea to look into the deeper meaning of eating disorders and specifically the mental illness surrounding it. My typeface therefore is a representation of body dysmorphia in anorexia, using limb like shapes to create letterforms, showing the reality and perception of people who see themselves as over weight when really they are dangerously underweight.This is a clone
This typeface has been made from the starting theme of 'Malnourished', from this I started to look intowhat it truley means to be malnourished and the people and places that are affected by this around the world. Through my research I looked at how the body is affected by malnutrition and being malnourished and saw when looking at images that it has a effect on the ribcage that is raher significant. From here I looked at the ribcage and how the bones fir together taking a few striking bones and using them to create letterforms. Each letterfrom ismade up of 2 or more ofthe bones that make up the ribcage that slot together in a simular way to that of the ribs.
Based on the theme of malnutrition, this font uses chicken bones to structure its letter forms. The chicken bones represent the cycle of malnutrition that continues today in the fast food industry – how we mistreat and abuse chickens that we then eat, consequently malnourishing ourselves in the process. The font is based on a stencil font, which chicken bones where placed on top of, photographed, drawn and translated onto Font Struct to create the final product. The font is not designed as body text but is designed to be used for means that need a more impacting, visually striking and eye catching font.This is a clone
