I produced this typeface as a part of a UWE project. I started by exporing the word dangerous, where I moved onto the topic of fear. This lead me to a fear of heights and ultimately glass and the way it smashes. This broken glass typeface is shattered as if hit directly and smashed into shape. I wanted it to look more unorganised so the smash seemed more natural. I didn't want the pieces to fit the shape of the letter form but I also didn't want you to be unable to read the letter so I felt like this was a good middle ground between the two. This typeface is to be used as a title font rather than text font.

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.

My typeface is based on the theme of disintegration. My starting point came from my interpretation of the word disintegrate; I immediately thought of 'burn'. After this I carried out some experiments by burning paper which led me to focus on the fragility of the charred edges. This made me want to create a delicate typeface with subtle shading; I found that I was influenced by Baskerville and Bistream Vera. My final typeface is designed to look like burnt paper. It is expressive and could only be used as title text rather than body text.

Influenced by shattered glass and the idea of 'ordered chaos', I created a type that would appear to be both legible and illegible. Looking at certain geometric shapes I focussed on how a letter could be 'pulled' apart into something completely different and chaotic.
