Designing "habitual" typography


I am looking for sources and suggestions on creating a font that demonstrates habits. For my final graphic design project, I have to design a typographical bookjacket for "The Power of Habit." Briefly, it is about how habits have the power to control and reform the success or failures of businesses, transform societies, and change our lives. The reaccuring theme is how habits work with a cue that triggers the routine, and finally what we gain from it. (Think of a continuous circle, and how habits pick up power by happening over and over again)

I am trying to use a process that can guide my design solution, but am having a difficult time with representing habits in my type design. Any place to start, ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

Habits typography project

Hi, i was wondering if i could get some feedback on a piece of work i've been struggling with. I have a project on the theme of typographic habits and the end result is to create a piece of design that communicates this to others.

The habit i was looking at was folding book edges and ruining them. Its something that annoys me when I lend friends books and so i thought to create a typeface based on the corner of a page fold and use this typeface to display famous quotes or maybe pivotal parts of a story. The letters themselves would have to be folded out letter by letter so that the action of folding rather than ruining the book would become vital to actually reading the story.
