This is my take on the theme of protect. My aim was to make my font look like chains.
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.
"SEAWEED' is a decorative font inspired through my research into the protection of the oceans. Through this research I was intrigued by the way that a simple thing like planting seaweed could possibly hold the key to reversing ocean acidification.
This display typeface was inspired by the return to traditional Celtic iconography within the insular manuscripts of 6th Century Britain. Each letter is highly ornamented, incorporating chains of interlinked geometry that translate the flowing forms of Celtic knots into the grid based format of Fonstruct.
"Crypt" Is a gothic, serif font, inspired by the decorative and intricate details within many cathedrals and church architecture, influenced by such features such as stained glass, gargoyles, petroglyphs and spires.
This typeface was created on the main theme of 'Protection' that i later explored in the idea of fences and how they can protect us from the outside world. I wanted my letters to connect with one another creating the illusion of a fence and potraying unity.
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.
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.
With the given theme of Protection, I looked into the human immune system and the biological human features. Researching further into antibodies, I created a type face of the antibody structure which resembles the shape of a capital Y. Following symmetrical shapes and doubled lines, I created an alphabet that mimics the original structure of antibodies, with similar joints and angles.
I created this typeface as part of a brief set by my graphic design course to create a typeface based on the theme ‘protect’. I took inspiration from 17th century decorated letters, however I wanted my typeface to appear more modern in comparison to the modernity of decorated letters. I knew before I started that I wanted to do rounded letters to give the type that ‘bubbly’ or ‘cloud’ appearance which I really like. The letters are supposed to resemble the appearance of trees, branches and leaves as a tribute to the environment and how we should protect it.
Any feedback welcome :) !!
This type face is based on the buildings in the community of Bristol and how simply square they are.
Backslide is an experiment in creating a font that seeks to intentionally reverse one of the most fundamental aspects of modern European languages, that text needs to be read from left to right.
Although this font still types from left to right like a standard Western script, each letter is designed to (hopefully) be completely legible like its forward facing counterparts.This is a clone
My intention with this font was to link it to "Rebirth", so I thought about computer viruses. I looked into glitches and how they distort and warp the computer to such an extent that you'd have to reboot your computer. In other words, the Rebirth of your computer.
Font based on given theme of Rebirth- Playing with idea of reconstruction of objects into new purpose. Letters combinations of objects were randomly generted to play into the rough, hand crafted aesthetic.
This is a theme developed from "Rebirth", a kind of new extraterrestrial typeface style living on Mars.
I was influenced by graphic and typeface designer Wim Crouwel, with a simple structure and a mixture with another typeface from the game Wolfenstein, avoiding additional strokes.
It also resembles a kind of domino.

This typeface was inspired by cave paintings and graffiti as well as doodles found throughout my sketchbooks and notebooks. I felt as though cave paintings perfectly showed the presence of communities as well as their legacies. Graffiti and street art also informed this design - I amparticularly fond of graffiti words where there are both curves as well as points and sharp edges. I believe that there is a strong sense of community that comes with street art - especially in Bristol and so strongly links to the theme of community.
