This font explores the theme of anger. I took inspiration from heavy metal/rock album covers and tried to recreate the same irregular/jarring lettering they do. To do this I painted letters quickly on varying sizes of paper and translated this onto fontstruct to get a rough/rushed look.
A 2x2 design which started with a "split" aesthetic and ended up with a "stenciled" one. I embraced the change and now all these glyphs are functional as stencils. They contain minimal stacking and no composites.
In some cases the inside is connected to the outside at only one point. If you decide to use this for stencilling, I recommend using a stout material for the stencil and storing it with care.
The name comes from one of the many, many old joke bands which I created.
Recommended: Use with kerning turned on!
Going for an industrial sci-fi look. The hard angles give these letters the appearance of being made by some kind of tape or roller.
This font was originally designed to be uppercase only. So, the lowercase might be considered as an alternate set.
Original size: 24pt (24pt, 48pt, etc. look most crisp when not using antialiasing)
My theme was messy. I began looking into paint and the effect it can give when the ink runs out towards the end of the stroke. This led me to looking into graffiti and the 'messy' appearance it can give a place. I took photographs on my way home from Arnolfini of any typographic graffiti I came across and I traced the ones I was fond of. I particularly liked this one that had drips at a slight angle as it was written on a slant so I reproduced my own interpretation of it.
The font is based around the theme 'messy'. Each letter is inspired by messy paint/ink strokes; therefore no letter is exactly the same as another. However they all work well as a whole complementing eachother with small similarities. The font is designed to be used for headers, for example art posters or flyers. It could be used for big bodies of text, however slightly less suitable as it may become harder to read if it's made too small. The font could also be used in any colour and still grab attention!
Font from Betrayal At Krondor, (C) 1993 Dynamix / Sierra On-Line. Bitmap typeface that starts and ends most chapters in the greatest computer RPG of all time, "Betrayal At Krondor". Now 100% accurate, thanks to Flowswitch at the xBAK forum. Based on "Venice" by Bill Atkinson (one of the the original Macintosh system fonts) and "Naples" from EA's 'Deluxe Paint II Enhanced'.
Spray.ME is a classic stencil typeface, a bit inspired by Impact, but with a little twist. Hold Shift while typing for a dirty effect of fresh paint dripping from the letters. Stains, splatters - just like it was sprayed a few seconds ago. "!" hides behind "\" and "|".
I realize that there are tiny holes scattered over letters with the paint effect, if this font is going to be disqualified for that, I can remove them. :3
Ah - there's a tiny spray can dingbat!
