My third attempt at italic stencil, this time more strongly inspired by Futura Black and using 2x2 filters, composites and above all the new and amazing NUDGING tool!

The font Flomotion is the outcome to my first semester at UWE, studying Graphic Design. The task was to create a full typeface on the font building website, fontstruct.com. The final design had to relate to a chosen theme, my chosen theme for this project was Motion in which I pursued the subject of optical illusions. I liked the idea of trying to create a false sense of movement with a font, taking inspiration from existing optical illusions with the same effect. This then led me to look at the 'Op' art movement of the 1960's, in particular the extensive work of Bridget Riley. Her use of black and white line giving the illusion of depth had a big influence on my work and I think my final design reflects this.

I was interested by the movement and vibrations created from sound for this typeface as part of my first year of Graphic Design.
I experimented with speakers with paint and corn, taking photographs of the movement throughout.
This is a simple sans serif typeface, using different sized cubes to create the effect of noise or vibration flowing out of the type.
