"Get Wired"

The current project; the first of year three.

Brief: (Part One)
Choose an existing familiar typeface as the visual starting point for your experiments. Using various kinds of wire, create versions of the letterforms which explore and develop a new font with a very different personality. Finally, name your new typeface appropriately and visualise/photograph the name using your newly constructed letterforms.

I began by focusing immediately on colour, and how to show that through the wire itself and together with the background. I also turned my attention towards more organic forms, becuase to me, wire has always had a very natural appearance similar to vines... despite the fact it is something that is actually very man-made.
