Genre – Font

A2 Final Final.jpg

Over the past four months, I have been working on creating my own font. I have chosen to create my font as a 3D font, although the outcome does not seem massively 3D. As well as my font being 3D, I also wanted my font to visualise 26 different genres of music through shape and colour. Which means that each letter of my font is a different genre of music. When creating my font I had the idea of half of the letter having a piece cut out of it, where the genre would be visualised. Although I have visualised 26 different genres in this font, I do not expect anyone to guess or know which genre belongs to each letter. It is truly based on my visualisation of each genre.

When visualising the genre’s I wanted to make sure the colours were not the same as another letter, which became quite difficult as I felt like I was running out of colours in a way. I have enjoyed creating my font, although I would of liked to have more time on it.
