Rules & Guidelines:
1) All FontStruct users may participate in FontOut, and can do so with as many entries as they like.
2) An entry in a FontOut is a picture or image on a specific FontStruct forum. It can also be a public font. There are no limits on licence.
3) The font must be tagged with "FontOut#" where '#' stands in for the specific number of the FontOut.
4) Every two weeks, a FontOut will be announced and participants can publish fonts or images within that two-week time period.
(10 June 2012)
Create a font that can be easily read in a paragraph. The typeface must be made with FontStruct. Please upload sample pictures to this discussion.
The last time you can upload a sample is 17 June 2012. Voting starts on that date.
Let's see what our FontStruct community can do!
Don't forget to check out all the forums & FontOuts!
What do you mean by "easy to read in a paragraph" ? I can smell the perfume of boring copies of arial- helvetica-bodoni etc in this fontout
@abneurone // Then you have the right not to participate if you feel that way. I meant a font that looks good when in a paragraph. Sorry, I cannot tailor a sitewide competition to a single FSor's opinion. If you'd like to participate, we'd love it! :)
P.S. Good job on FO1!
I like it! What is that thing at the end of the sample?
Thank you. This a graphic counterpoint to the text. This is an abstract image which can make you think to church stained glass, to chemical elements, to cells before dividing, to beehive bees constructions, to geometric painting... let your imagination flow... followed by a needle (or a thermometer ?) (actually an "l" in this font.
I like it a lot.
Do we make a new font for this? Or can we use a font that's been made before FontOut2? (I assume the former)
This is a little harder. I don't have any font designed for paragraph, instead designed for logos and big sized usage...
@neurone: Nice sample, dude :) From this we can conclude that a paragraph doesn't only can be filled with "boring" fonts, a "crazier" fonts can make a paragraph more interesting!
I agree that this didn't sound as interesting... Until AFT made it so!
@u126 // Either one. You choose.
@everyone else // Well, should I change it? I didn't want it to be another "design the most beautiful glyph", so any suggestions?
@demonics : even I took the challenge! Let them some time before cancelling the fontout!
All right… the challenge is still up!
Something I started sometime ago, just want to hear some opinions about legibility.
@architaraz: It's brilliant.

This FontOut was a flop. Sorry. I won't be able to FontStruct for the next week, so I can't do the next FontOut. I will attemp to hand the reins off to Yautja temporarily. If you don't want to Yautja then I will ask someone else. Yautja (along with Abneurone, cablecomputer and CMunk) helped me through the beginnings of FS Forum.
Ok. Shall we start voting on this?
Let's start voting on this FontOut! Leave a comment to give your vote for the first, second, and third places.

...Wait, today is 24 June, dont you mean 1 July?
Either way, my votes are:
Right, sorry! Fixed.
1st place: Architaraz
2nd place: AFT
3rd place: Laynecom
Unusual and fun, Basmachi is a high-contrast, modular script with a Central-Asian flavour.
