I started conceptualizing the idea for a Horror/Dark font back in 2009. After a few had drawn drafts I refined the idea and decided the font should look somewhat like stitched patches of leather with interlacing lines to represent the stitching. My initial work was too complex for smaller font sizes, so I sacrificed a lot of the details I had originally envisioned for the simpler representation shown here. I purposely made the letters sporadic and non-uniform with various bumps and line height to give the font more of a unorganized and disturbed natural feeling similarly derived from classic ransom notes cut from magazines.
It is very close to completed in 2014 and I plan on finishing the font later in the future.
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
