As part of a project for my graphic design course at UWE, our brief was to create a typeface based on a theme. I chose vibration as my theme as I explored my theme I was drawn to line graphs which help record the frequency of sounds. I wanted my typeface to resemble this like it was on an ECG monitor. I also looked at John Skelton’s pinpression typeface which truly inspired my font, having continuous lines connecting all of the characters was very important and finding his work showed me that it was possible. This is my first attempt at creating a typeface and there are still alterations that need to be done.

As part of my first project on the Graphic Design BA Hons degree at UWE, we were asked to design a font based on a theme. The theme I chose was motion. I started with a few different ideas and by sketching and practising on here I ended up choosing skidmarks found on the road left by cars. Using the lines that the tyremarks leave, I created this font. I've kept it simple, which is how I prefer my work to be. I think the clean lines that I've used also make it resemble the tracks of a scalextric set.
