'Nerves' is a font created based on my given theme 'PROTECT'. I chose to create a thin and messy typeface, inspired by nerve structures and the protection our nervous systems provide. I wanted there to be overlapping lines and 'bursts' that mimic how nerves look, as well as capturing the more disorganised nature of a nerve.
With the given theme of Protection, I looked into the human immune system and the biological human features. Researching further into antibodies, I created a type face of the antibody structure which resembles the shape of a capital Y. Following symmetrical shapes and doubled lines, I created an alphabet that mimics the original structure of antibodies, with similar joints and angles.
This geometric, sans serif typeface is based on the biological process endocytosis. Having an interest in science, I wanted to create a font that was both interesting to look at and, in some way, informative. Each letter (cell) is linked to the next by particles. The indents in each letter imitate the invagination of the plasma membrane, forming a pocket around the particle. In the cell, the particles are then ingested and transformed into vesicles. In summary, this is what endocytosis is.
