This font was based on the word ornate. It draws inspiration from neo-classical architecture, tattoos the base outline takes elements from church windows holding the inner detailing which was somewhat inspired by a combination of knit-work and the forms within the glass holding together stain glass windows. The flourishes and filigree forms are a more simplistic take on tattoo lettering. With all this combined I created this typeface to represent my chosen theme of ornate

As part of my "Found Type" project at UWE, we had to design a font for a theme that we chose. I chose Ornate. I was particularly drawn to this theme due to its relations with Biblical manuscripts and the architecture within Churches. I ended up combining the manuscript like lettering with features of Churches. I realised that this combination creates a great contrast between thick and thin, straight and curves. I found it difficult to create curves on font struct, but I rose to the challenge and created this. I hope you enjoy!

This typeface is based on the theme of "Vibration". From the beginning I wanted to create a unique design, looking at sound I decided to use my voice as the starting point. After recording myself pronouncing the alphabet and uploading it to a sound editor I looked at the different shapes and patterns it created. This was my voice that was unique to me and was the inspiration for the typeface. I then researched fonts and looked at bold, chunky designs which could hold the pattern without taking too much away from the letter form as it was important to me that my design was still legible. I decided to use the corresponding sound with the letter (i.e. the A has my pronunciation of the letter running through it)making it different from anything I have seen before. Please comment and share your opinions. Thank You

This is my final font for my task at UWE. I wanted to keep it really simple and free. I would greatly appreciate any positive and negative feedback! Please tell me what you think and what I could improve on as this is one of my first published fonts.

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.

Lemiscus is a display typeface created for the module 'Communicating with words' at UWE, inspired by the word 'ornate'. Initial research led me to design a typeface where each letter is arranged from a single length of ribbon (although I have had to break this rule for some punctuation). I laid the ribbon out into the shape of each letterform and copied every angle on Fontstruct to get it just right.
Due to us UWE students overwhelming the Fontstruct servers tonight, I can’t edit my Fontstruction any more right now, but I should have all those little out of place bits and bobs nice and tidy in the next week.

This is a display font that i have designed during the first term of my Graphic Design degree at UWE Bristol. I started with the word chaos, where i looked into propaganda posters, the breaking of objects and ordered lettering.
so using the idea of breaking apart text and overlaying outlines of a the font I created a visual chaos.
I believe that the font could be used in promotional posters and other advertising pieces.

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.
