This typeface has been created based on the theme 'Mobile'. I tried out a wide range of experimentation when it came to producing hand rendered work, as I felt I needed to work out what would best capture the general sense of the word. I initionaly thought I would use the aspect of being free and having my letters being very fluid. I thought road systems along with way-finding signs interested me more and I used the basic shape of the arrows used on the motor way signage in the UK. I experimented with curves and different shaped arrows but I settled on this because others made it too playful.

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.

motion and movement, arrows pointing us in different directions everyday, moving us around, showing a pathway, suggesting a position.

A font containing common glyphs for navigation and media control. Initially constructed as paging icons for my website www.adamdorman.com. My requirements were that it was simple, functional and relateable.

A project dealing with the subject of order for UWE's communicating with words project at degree graphic design. Inspiration coming from the traffic system, in particular the way that junctions have been designed to direct traffic and keep order at the same time.
