Your spacing needs some work, but this is good work.
Thanks :) its still work in progress, will make sure the spacing gets done though!
More or less complete, all feedback welcome!!! Thank you :)
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Apostle XIII” is now a Top Pick.
This is nice. Have you thought of making the 'A' an upper case A rather than a lower case. Same goes for the E. Do you think Q needs a bit of work, I think it looks kind of odd. Also your T could easily be mistaken for an F.
All thoughts that had occurred to me, I found myself working to a very strict angle pattern to make letter forms, T in particular was a struggle to produce, perhaps without the cross passing through the stem it would be more obvious? The font is based on church script and I found that some gothic fonts chopped and changed between upper and lower case in display fonts but obviously its a constant work in progress!
I think my previous comment was before you added the decoration.
I just wanted to add, that I love it.
This font look soooo nice! Where did you get that?
Thanks :) the idea for the letter shapes is originally from bible text and old gothic fonts. The ornamentation came from development of patterns based mainly on 3 different sizes of circles
very cool! fave!
Thanks for your interest, you can find the type specimen here if it interests you: http://www.wasteofpaper.co.uk/print&type_projects/print&type-found-type.html
All the best
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Apostle XIII” is now a current Featured FontStruction.
I miss that one , this font isa so beautiful.
I think this font is unfinished (nothing about numbers, nothing about other glyphs like "&, $, %, etc", nothing about accents...). The space on the right of the "d" must be adjusted, IMHO.
But I like it!. Congrats for the TP and the FD!
Very nice work. You should be proud of it!
Beautiful, exceptional work. I'm glad it was selected as a Featured FontStruction; I had not seen it till now.
I am having trouble creating fonts that seem appealing (No pun intended). Any ways I could improve myself?
I am having trouble with creating fonts that seem appealing (No pun intended). Any ways I could improve myself?
For this particular project I wasn't designing to appeal to anyone it was more about freedom of creative license and pleasing myself. The fact that the Fonstruction has been chosen as a Top Pick etc was an added bonus.
However if you really want to appeal to others maybe just try identifying a gap and make something that you know that yourself and others would definitely have a use for, a lot of useful type design is based on borrowing elements from other fonts rather than extreme wild creatvitity.
Hope that helps?
@djnippa I've cloned this font and fixed the upper 'A' if you are interested. :-) See my "MacBethCalligraphy". (I also did very minor cleanup work on 'H'.)
I am aware these glyphs: uppercase 'E', 'Q', and 'Z' still need to be fixed. :-/
@Michaelangel007 very nice, the fonstruction is pretty old now but if I remember rightly at the time I chose to design lowercase letters as I saw its use as being more decorative/display than text based. Having said that I did use it for some body text and it was fairly readable. Appreciate your time and effort in redesigning some letters though!
Pretty! seems like it took a long time. :)
Impressive for a bitmap based typeface!
use " ARY " text instead of " Gary ".
A must have !
It's fantastic, wonderfull! *-*
Hey, WasteOfPaper, could you hide the comment at the top by Ben Neenan? "M**********r" is a big-time bad word and one guy once got arrested for using that word (along with EIGHT others) in a comedy routine.
I agree with Bismuth. There are children on this site too.
Comment has been hidden, I can assure you that Ben meant no offense by posting that. It has been a surprise quite how much exposure the fontstruction has gained. Regards, M
I really like this. I totally agree that the capital letters meet the definition of "ornate." The lowercase letters have a really nice Gothic feel to it too (they all do, really). Excellent job! Keep up the awesome work.
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.
