The brief was set to create our own typeface. We were given a list of instances to choose from that we had to base our typeface on. The instance I chose was ''The Captain is a Storyteller" as it made me conjour up many exciting visuals.
I decided to firstly look at a range of different pirate images to help me get more inspired and by looking at shapes created in these images. It was after studying the shapes made from the sails on a pirate ship, i had my final idea in place. I wanted to create a typeface using these triangular elements. I also wanted the typeface to be a serif based so I decided to base the skeleton of my outcome on the typeface 'Perpetua Titling'.
I also added a 'cut out' effect on the edge of the typeface to give it more of a warn, ripped map feel. Furthermore I decided to add script style lines comes from each letter to give it more of a flamboyant pirate feel and they also reflect the rope that the sails are connected to on the ship. One last detail I added was the dots & line pattern on each letter. This reflecting the rivets found on treasure chests.
