JUNCTION is a typeface created from the intersection of two circles.
It was created in order to represent an INTROVERT (person who RETREATS mentally) theme. The intersection of the two circles symbolizes the limitations that the characters fit in to.
Geometries and grids are some of my interests and these are what inspired my ideas.
I based this typeface off the theme of introversion, and so went about creating a font that worked from the idea of the unseen, less obvious shadows of the letterforms, using arrows and angles to continue the theme of what is internal and not what the eye sees immediately.
This font is based around the theme of “Introvert” in which I looked more specifically at categorising existing fonts into what I consider to be introverted and extroverted fonts and then slicing and gluing them together. This is the result of that experimentation; named such because it is an exercise in forcing introverted fonts to socialise with extroverted fonts, with little success.
This typeface represents the theme of introversion. It was inspired by the idea of someone being hidden in some way, slightly removed from immediate view. I wanted to make sure not to aid in further enforcing the negative associations that go alongside the idea of introversion, so the typeface is in all capitals, to signify a bold personality being only slightly obscured from sight, in relation to an introvert’s aversion to social interactions.
Folded is typeface based on the idea of paper folding. The idea of the paper folding technique was inspired by my original theme of the life and mind of an introvert. The word introvert means a person who thinks 'inward', so therefore to start off with i played around with the idea of 'inward thinking' and came across the idea of folding paper as when folding paper things become distorted and changed and can also be seen as a inward action or to look inward when folding things in half for example. This later on led me to this typface.
