The new bricks inspired me with their more flowing contour. Ideal for decoration, I saw them as small waves.

I created this font for my University project. It was my first time using this site and I found it quite hard at first but now quite enjoy the possibilities. I started by looking at the word "Ornate" which to me, means adorned or decorated. When I looked at decorative adorned work, I noticed the use of vines and flowers. I then took photos of vines on buildings which inspired my font.
I started with a basic letter form and by using composite bricks I added pattern in the bricks and edges much like some older buildings. Then finally added vines and flowers to complete the font.

So here it is...Green Eyed Girl.
This project at UWE Bristol was to create a typefacd based around one word; so I looked into the word 'Curves' (which I probabily will never do again) and eventually came up with this. The idea came from looking at curves in lizards and vines, then linking the curvy-reptile theme with Medusa - hence 'Green Eye'.
Originally I was going to base it on a serif typeface but found that far too difficult on Fontstruct so used aggressive strait lines - similar to pre-historic drawings - to provide contrast against the seductive curves to make it seem like an Evil Temptress. The serif's are there to add authority.
So thats Green Eyed Girl by me...Sophina B.
*I think it may need tweaking in the sense that I've aligned each letter to the edge of the curve rather than the edge against the serif or stem. *
