Based on disintegration, this font represents many forms of decay. It also appears like tea-stains on paper, giving it a very worn look. Despite this, the font is structured around helvetica and the letterforms remain recognisable and readable. The font is designed to be decorative and to be use selectively, for bold and attention grabbing headers, and not for large pieces of text. Think poster for your local rubbish tip! (or of a similar vibe).

This font was made as a response to a brief given to me for my Graphic Design course. we were invited to chose a theme for a list of words, I chose decay. My inspiration originally came from my everyday walk to Uni; past old factories, over a disused railway bridge and past an old cricket ground. I then started to broaden my view of decay and looked at the way it effects different things including the decay theory (a theory used my psychologists about memory) and then finally I narrowed it down to dead tress. The finally font has been inspired by the illustrations of Tim Burton.

UWE 'Communicating With Words' Graphic Design project.
I chose to look at the theme 'Decay', and was inspired by Andy Goldsworthy, Anna Garforth, Daniele Del Nero, and natural occurrences such as rotting fruit and mould.
I grew mould and made observational sketches, experimenting with a range of drawing techniques.
I then drew out my font, and used graph paper to translate it into pixels.
I feel this font could be used for things such as health posters for sexual health or smoking advertisements, or in children's books, due to the natural rounded quality.

My name's Josh and I'm a graphic design first year student at the University of the West of England. This is my typeface, Crumble, developed from the theme of decay. As my first time using FontStruct I struggled at first getting the feel of the programme and this is my final outcome. Throughout the process of creating my alphabet I realised some limitations I’d inadvertently set myself and therefore had to simplify my design, however the end result is one that I find effective due to this simplicity.

Typeface initially based on the theme of decay, getting inspiration from the look of old, rotten, decayed wood. Created for my first year project at UWE Bristol, and my first fontstruction.
