What an awful sample... I'll do a better one soon!
Man, you guys are killin' it with these new designs. Perfect name for this one Shasta - hits home like a ton of bricks. I think Ford or Chevy Trucks just found their new font for their 2010 campaign ;-)
Love this one. Heavy duty with enough style to not be boring.
Now we’re talkin’! THIS is a slab serif. Meaty, muscly, well-proportioned. I even like the quirky serifs on the V an W. Excellent exploitation of 2.0
Perfect in every way.
Blam! Boom! Bow!
@ Shasta: Dear FS master: You have come true with this font an idea where I was working before it and now I give up gladly. I really like your fonts, even I think you and I are thinking about typography in a way very similar. Thank you for your dedication to the strange world of the glyphs.
This is great. Lots of fun and interesting details.
If someone thought it was easy to make a font like Punchline, he/she should think again. It looks well balanced, easy on the eyes, almost flawless. The full characters set, and a snazzy demo pic make this work very accomplished. 10/10
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Punchline” is now a Top Pick.
grossartige arbeit! hut ab, shasta!
Thanks everyone, really appreciate the feedback, and I'm glad you like it! I must admit it has started to grow on me too as the fontstructing progressed... Probably one of my most useful and usable fonts, and that's mainly thanks to the steeper diagonals made possible with FS 2.0. In that respect the composite brick feature has made a huge step towards more professional designs possible. I don't think I would have made many things much different if i had done this in a free bezier curve software. (Maybe the Y, but that's about it.) Which is pretty cool if you think about it!
So cheers to Rob and the FontStruct staff for pushing this amazing piece of software further and further! At least half of the praise here belongs to you...
Unbelievably great! This is just a true font. I'm amazed by the details.
I love your diatrics there thick and well design.
Look very PRO Bravo! a 10
@elmoyenique: I don not agree with you, YOU SHOULD take back your Idea , look the overall PUNCHLINE and bring your concept somewhere else... ;)
you've already show us your great imagination, I belive in you ;)
Uh, yep, almost forgot to answer to that...
@elmoyenique: I totally agree with Upixel: Don't give up on your design! I'd love to see it... One shouldn't give up something just because someone else did something similar. Most of us wouldn't even have started fontstructing if we'd had this attitude. And in the end, variety is the spice of life. ;)
And gspace and Upixel: Thanks for your comments, glad you like it!
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Punchline” is now a current Featured FontStruction.
Awesome, thanks a lot afrojet!
Here's a little thank you for all the positive feedback... Though: "little" might not be the appropriate word for this fella.
If you didn't tell anyone, no one would ever suspect this is a modular font. Superb craftsmanship.
wow great work and marvelous sample ! Félécitations !
congratulations !! http://www.instantshift.com/2010/05/25/35-fresh-freefonts-for-designers-and-developers/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+iShift+(instantShift)&utm_content=Twitter
Thanks for the link, zen_killa... I had to ask them to use a slightly modified sample though. The way I posted it here it looked like a pig among pearls in that collection.:)
And thanks for the comment, thalamic! Not seeing the modular base of the font is probably one of the biggest compliments you can give me for this font... :)
Your sample is crazy good (as always)...very nice.
What a nice font! I downloaded it! I have a font called wacky. yes if you see it I know I have bad handwriting.
Just... wow awesome :) just downloaded it.
Only thing, I have to manually kern LT and FJ all the time. They are not close enough. :-)
Otherwise great stuff.
punch is a poweviolence band! :)
A very even, handwritten flow despite the inherent rigidity of its forms. The sprightly, angular effect is reminiscent of the lively lettering found in mid-century advertising.
