Sam Lambert, Graphic Design student at UWE. For my project I went with the theme of laziness (after an early failed attempt at using the theme of repetition). Whilst researching my theme I looked into the things people like doing best when feeling lazy, two very popular activities were smoking and sleeping. I wanted to create a simple/clean typeface that had a lazy feel to it. I tried to avoid giving it a predictable slouched look and thought a smokey/dreamy effect would work well for a font and also link to my research. I wanted to incorporate the smoking and sleeping/dreaming themes into the name and thought 'Pipe Dream' was perfect as it relates to both smoking and dreaming. All feedback is appreciated.


The curvy strokes are well executed, especially on the angular strokes.

Yes, what thalamic said. I love the A, V, and W especially.
