The typeface Arkwright is based on the Nottingham Trent building of the same name. The Arkwright Building was built in the late 1870s in a Gothic revival style therefore my typeface design is based on Old Style typefaces which were developed during the medieval period and therefore aesthetically reflect the Gothic architecture. The typeface takes a lot of inspiration directly from the features of the building such as the pointed arches which can be seen in the shape of the windows and doors. This aesthetic is prominent throughout the typeface as well as including a decorative inline which creates the impression of stone carving. This characteristic is also a direct reflection on the buildings appearance, materials and construction.
