As a first year graphic design student at UWE this is my first attempt at creating a typeface on Fontstruct based around the theme of ‘hope’. Looking at this theme I explored the words; dream, desires and wishing leading me to the classic phrase, ‘when you wish upon a star’ and have therefore, based my typeface on stars. Through research, I looked at the patterns and layouts of star constellations to find that they are only made up of straight lines and circles, which is why I have formed a simple lettering using only these two basic forms, incorporating the concept of star constellations.
We live in a world controlled by technology. As a creative professional I rely on tech to perform my primary business activities, whilst I am extremely pro-technology, I also recognise the negative impacts it has on society.
The theme for this project is ‘Dangerous’.
Please feel free to use this font as you wish, I would appreciate being told in advance as I love to see my work in use.
