Molecular Alphabet


Spring term Week 9 at Art School

Earlier this week I started working on my "personal statement" for my degree application - for anyone interested, its a toss up between Brighton an Bristol (UWE) at the moment. I noticed that I'd mentioned my "science" background a lot, which got me thinking about how to integrate more science related things into my work. I ended up digging out my old molecular building kit and having a go at designing a font with it ... a little bit of fun ...

This more of a test - so some of the things are out of focus - but it has given me something to go on, and I'd like to play some more. I then started playing around with words:


I enjoyed playing (notice the funky 3D trigonal bipyramidal "t") - may try things like putting the words on my old chemistry notes - lots of electron arrow pushing, yay!

I'm such a geek ...

The more I look at this the more I like it. I love the shadows on the squared paper in the individual alphabet photographs.

I love typography and fonts! This is really cool. You should make all of them 3-d...that would be fun.

These are great - with different lighting you would get more interesting shadows too.

This is so cool! When I was at uni I used to make myself a Christmas tree out of these each year!
