Hey there. It's been a moment that i think to create a destroy typeface with fontstruct. That's done with the Dconstruct typeface. Hope you'll like it. Zen

Very grungy. Great job!

zen_killa Tue, 13th October, 2009

Thanks a lot Aphoria ! I'm really please that you love it !

If I'm right, you've just published the first fontstruction in grunge style. Looks very dirty, worn, and tattered. It was only a matter of time before FS conquered this urban domain, and you are the conqueror. Nice demo pic. Congratulations. 10/10

zen_killa Tue, 13th October, 2009

Thanks Frodo7. I haved in mind to create a destroy type face with FS from a long time. I tried different ways to do it and that's the result.

Proud to be the conqueror hihihi

Great work with the Q!

p2pnut Tue, 13th October, 2009

That is some crazy deconstruction - well worth a 10.

The 'lazy dog' will have to watch out for the urban fox :)

zen_killa Tue, 13th October, 2009

Thanks you igorrossi and p2pnut for your comments ! I'm really happy with this " defonctstruction " i'll create the numbers soon !

WOW! Very impressive. It looks great! 10/10

While not being even close to the first grunge font created with fontstruct, this is impressive work nonetheless. Who cares about being “first” anyway! In my eyes, better to be unique while staying true to your heart.

The gradation you achieved – especially apparent at small sizes – has a convincing rubber stamp quality. To be honest I have little affinity for the immense and visually tiring pantheon of grunge fonts created in the wake of the whole digital revolution in typography. But to manually and successfully construct a graded texture of controlled chaos with fontstruct is a trick and a half. It’s great that you and other here find and share joy in it. : )

You might want to widen the space character for increased legibility straight out of the box.

zen_killa Wed, 14th October, 2009

thanks you very much for those comments. In facts it's taking time to create the chaos in the typeface and to make it different for each letter. But i'm glad of the result.

Wow, this is cool! Congratulations. This has to be worth a Top Pick, I think :-)

zen_killa Thu, 15th October, 2009

Thanks a lot Magic Sam.

Ps : i've create the number and some special letter right now :)

Frodo7 Fri, 16th October, 2009

Congratulations for your first Top Pick. Well done!

zen_killa Fri, 16th October, 2009

thanks you fontstruct Staff! And thanks to you Frodo7 ! Nice feeling to have a top pick font !!!

And a well deserved one!
It keeps a nice modular feeling but still takes advantage of a big scale to create a nice digital noise. Me gusta.

jinx Sat, 17th October, 2009

Congratulations! Very well done. (Maybe you could make the space between words a little larger though):)

zen_killa Sun, 18th October, 2009

thanks guys for your comments. I've put more space between the letters but i've didn't update the sample.


funk_king Tue, 20th October, 2009

a great technical achievement and work of art. fascinating to look at pixel size. looks almost stamped or something. i would also say more for the character space - try a little less than one of your lc glyphs - the text right now kind of runs together. but this is outstanding :)

zen_killa Tue, 20th October, 2009

thanks a lot funk_king. I'll try your advice in a new sample !
