A display font inspired by one of the UK's first and most influential free-party sound systems- Spiral Tribe. They helped create a culture of freedom and expression through art and music which was heavily (and still continues to be) suppressed by the Police. They used tribal patterns frequently in their artwork, which is the reasoning behind the spiral shapes within the letters.
The weights are varied throughout the letters to make it more playful and psycholdelic, as the rave culture is against agression and force used frequently against them by the police. New age travellers embrace harmony- which is why the letters are sized so that they work together in words to create a wider pattern.
Will make more characters.
Version 1.1: bfkq were altered to make them less identical to other glyphs and add some detail to the outlines of words.
Welcome to the Snake Basket. Here, pixelated snakes are charmed using the dulcet tones of Lil' Jon and Celtic Frost. The resulting elation, or perhaps PTSD, causes the snakes to coil into pecuilar shapes which resemble font glyphs.
Okay, that's not really the story. The story is that I always wanted to make a font that was all spirals and accidentally made it while trying to make something else. Now, after many attempts and refinements, I have something that is basically all-spirals. Huzzah!
A funky idea that started with the A and expanded from there. Most letters are drawn by a single line winding around, although some are just not willing to follow this mantra. I found this half-finished while scrolling through my private FontStructions, looking for ideas for the CounterComp, and decided it was already an interesting entry :-)
There's an alternate, narrow set of numbers that can be reached with Shift+number (on a QWERTY, Dvorak, etc. layout); not sure which set fits the style better. Suggestions and critiques welcome for anything, and feel free to clone and poke around with it. Thanks and enjoy!
