OIL RIG is based on the theme "destructive" particulary with regards to environmental destruction. I based my font on the structure of oil rigs; I think they have sense of beauty about them, but behind that there is a sinister note, as they are facilitating the human led destruction of our planet.
The extraction of oil for the manufacture of products such as plastic, is having a detrimental effect on our planet. Oil spills eradicate marine communities, and plastic products pollute our oceans. This is an issue which I feel needs more attention.
Oil Spill is a font inspired by the theme destructive. I looked on the destruction of buildings at first and the cracks on them. More from that I looked on how stress can affect people and cause primature wrinkles, but I focused more on the habitat destruction and decided to work on oil spills. The design shows the relationship between water and oil and how people's activity in the sea can lead to disastrous consequences
