Pypeface is a sans serif typeface, based on the theme of compression and inspired by the form of pipes. The typeface features a number of lines and soft corners as well as overlapping and entwining tendencies pipes have. The lower case characters have been created by predominantly using two lines. Pypeface is strongly suited to the advertising industry within hardware, plumbinb and industrial indusrtial, but can be used to achiece a simple and sophisticated look within any field. It may be desirable for steampunk or sci-fi novels,games or even film credits. It could also be used very bluntly in large as each letter becomes a new maze for the eye to find its way around.

This typeface was based on the theme of 'compression'. For this theme I wanted to give the impression of the letters being squashed into a small, confined space. To achieve this I started with an 8x8 grid and designed each letter according to the set size. I found this challenging at first because I soon realised that by using a small grid I had limited myself with what I could produce. However, I feel that by sticking to my grid rule I have been successful in creating a simple but effective typeface.
