Malnutrition can be seen as an epidemic of the 21st century. Not only is Starvation continuing to rise in less economically developed countries; Countries who have the resources to be healthy choose a malnourished lifestyle.
It Is not uncommon to only associate malnutrition with not eating enough substantial food; however, it also extends to eating too much food. Both contribute to the crisis and this is why I wanted to incorporate both obesity and anorexia into my typography.
My typography resembles the stretching of skin as if its being pulled into a new and more desired position. This is a common emotional response to malnourishment and obsessions with weight.
This font was created based originally on the word 'Gregarious'. From that I researched Social Housing in the UK. These are spaces designed to house many people for as cheap as possible. I used compound blocks to create complex detailed flats that stack up as high as a tower block usually would.
