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.
UPPERCASE DISPLAY FONT
Error is typeface desinged to feel like static glitching - inspired by the theme 'unstable'.
I created this font inspired by my theme 'Dangerous'. I wanted my font to look dark and scary, which could be used for advertisement for horror films or shows. I created this 'dangerous' affect by using sharp straight edges rather than curves, I also varied the black thickness in lines so that it stood out.
This font was created around the theme of unstable. It was developed from shapes and structures of scaffolding. I began looking at how each part of scaffolding is pivotal in creating a solid structure and if a part was to be removed it would become unstable and collapse. Each letter form is molded from different parts of a scaffolding frame, such as c-clips etc. The outcome was very engineered/mechanical and is probably best used as a display font for businesses.
The main theme of this typeface is based on tension and the structure of muscle and muscle fibers. Originally I started off with the word energise and from there I looked at sugar and then the consumption of sugar which helps fuel your body and muscles. I then began to explore muscle forms and how it is structured around bones, ligaments and how it is intertwined. I then tried to translate this all into letterform.
