this is my art deco railing font. I was given the theme 'protect' and thought to link it to railings as they protect people. I really like the art deco art styles and was inspired by this to make the font. I took the key elements from research of art deco railongs e.g curves and spikes and took this into my font.This is a clone
-" Constructivism's central idea is that human learning is constructed, that learners build new knowledge upon the foundation of previous learning" Phillips, 1995.
This is my first Construction based on the theme of "Rebirth". I chose this theme as I wanted to investigate how a country is "reborn" after a war or a revolution. This led me to read an article about graphic design ideas that came from the Russian Revolution. One of them was Constructivist typography-combination of contrasting shapes and sizes. I looked at the work of El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko. From this research I began to cut out shapes of different sizes and began to construct letters- however, this idea didn't translate well in FontStruct. To widen my research, I looked at Constructivist and Soviet Brutalist architecture which my font was inspired by. It reflects buildings like the Polytechnic Institute of Minsk, The Palace of Ceremonies, and the Georgian Ministry of Highways in Tbilisi.
This is my first fontstruction, created whilst studying graphic design at UWE Bristol. I experimented using script brushes and calligraphy on Procreate and also tried to incorporate some of my own handwriting to make it more personal. The font is blocky and cursive to represent how people see hope and good in the bad. Our paths in life are never smooth sailing.
