My theme was messy. I began looking into paint and the effect it can give when the ink runs out towards the end of the stroke. This led me to looking into graffiti and the 'messy' appearance it can give a place. I took photographs on my way home from Arnolfini of any typographic graffiti I came across and I traced the ones I was fond of. I particularly liked this one that had drips at a slight angle as it was written on a slant so I reproduced my own interpretation of it.
For our font project I chose the theme unstable as this word interested me the most. From taking images of cracked surfaces around Bristol I decided that I would focus on this as my theme looking at unstable surfaces as found this an interesting topic to focus on. From my photography I created drawings of cracked paint work and then from these I used the crack drawings to create the shapes of my font creating the letters themselves. I feel my font is very unique and original.
I have created this font using the word "destructive" as a theme. After experimenting with a number of ideas I created this font by cutting it out of card in a distressed way, then projecting light through it on the wall, photographing the results and recreating the result in fontstruct. I feel as if my font could be used for a number of different things such posters or advertisement for art or music event.
This font is based on the word messy. Inspiration comes from paper being torn into small pieces, and the moment of chaos when work goes wrong and paper is ripped out of a sketchbook. The gradients are also not accurate in order to vaguely represent how shadows form on crumpled paper. The font was drawn freehand to begin and is designed to be used decoratively for headers. This font could be used for an art club poster.This is a clone
Hijack is my first typeface and as been produced from my theme Asymmetrical. The font takes the characteristic of imperfections and glitches. In a world that often criticises imperfections and irregularities it offers an option to embrace the unsymmetrical aspects within this typeface. The use of this typeface could fit in a large variety of circumstances and forms, whether it be billboard posters, t-shirt and bags, TV, flyers and online website banners.
