This typeface is based on the word 'Disintegrate'. It is centred around deconstructing each letterform to give the effect of falling apart and dissolving whilst still being legible. it was important to deconstruct the letter as much as possible, but the letters should always be readable on their own.

This is Fracture my first font. My chosen theme for this project was ‘disintegrate’. I began by looking up synonyms for my theme and I explored them visually in my sketchbook, just basic pencil sketches of a handful of letters. I went for quite illustrative type with a simple structure – the effect layered over the letter. Whilst flicking through ‘typography sketchbooks’ I found some work I liked and considered to be a similar style to mine – urban influences. The letter works on a square of 10-34 across with a width of about 10 squares on the elements of the letter itself, although it varies on corners and joins which gives it a block or slab style. Because of the styling of the typeface I would say it’s use is in short texts or headings. It works better on small scales as on a larger scale the curves and disintegrating effect begin to pixelate.
