I made this typeface based on my chosen theme continuous. When I first thought of the word ‘continuous’ I saw never ending lines and continuous loops between letters. As it was my first typeface I have created using fontstruct I decided to go with a simplistic approach by creating my typeface to be square and blocky. I began by creating a 3D word out of paper using this typeface and photographing it with the use of directional lighting to create a shadow. It was from this I got the idea of duplicating each letter and placing it above the original at a slant to resemble the shadow from the photograph I had taken. I was still able to keep with my theme of continuous by connecting both letters in a continuous loop.

This is a typeface based on a theme of reflection for a project on the BA(hons) graphic design course at UWE. It's based on the reflection used in comic books. With a use of thick and thin diagonals to create a reflective effect.
