This was a 10 minute challenge for me! :)

If you think it looks sorta like hieroglyphics, then your not alone :P

I'm going to sell this on MyFonts with a full charset, under Winter Design Studio, my own foundry.

Good luck! :-)

Well done in 10 minutes! And good luck, but remember that MyFonts can be strict. I don't think you are allowed to have fonts elsewhere if you sell them there (that would include FontStruct too).

Yautja Mon, 4th February, 2013

That might apply to free fonts only though... Well, I'm not good with this stuff so I'll stay quiet now. :)

@dm: Thx!

@Yautja: This is a demo version...

I'll give you people the link once my foundry is set up!

AARGH! I got REJECTED by the Myfonts people! Forget MYfONTS, I'm stickeing to FS! This is no longer a demo. I will be adding diacritical marks and stuff now for free. :(

Yautja you were right. MyFonts IS strict...

@winty5: I suspect that the problem with MyFonts is more of a legal one. They are a very professional outfit and everything is signed and sealed by a contract. They would not be able to proceed with these legal processes as you are only 10 years old.

aw, bummer, dude. don't let this deter you. there are many ways to reach your goal. a simple solution might be to partner with parents and have them submit the paperwork. they may agree or not, but it's a thought. more important advice i would give at this point is, becoming a professional foundry is hard work and a long process - at least it has been for me. i've made some money from the fonts i created here, but it's been slow and sporadic. everybody's case is different i'm sure. you have displayed a true gift for type design. i would encourage you to continue, and to pursue your commercial ambitions, but don't let this distract you from having fun, being a kid, and enjoying fontstruct :)

winty5 — how about dafont?


winty5
winty5 Sun, 17th February, 2013

@architaraz: They didn't.

@cablecomputer: That makes 2 of us!

@p2p: You're probably right.

@fk: Thanks for all the support. I'll continue to use fontstruct, become more skilled, then maybe try again when I'm older.

@dm: Good idea!

Congrats for your new dafont account! Dafont is a great start for those who want go to serious typers. Don't go too far, it takes a lot of practice to make a higher quality fonts. Improve your skills, knowledge of fonts.

IF you like skribal, you should check out Chyldren. It's new from Winter Design Studio (aka winty5 or WDS)

why did fontsbytes repost Mikropix without my permission?!

Well, it's free for all to download (that is the nature of Fontstruct) ;)
And the uploader credited you, you should be happy for that (some works have been downloaded, renamed, and claimed by others as their own!)

I like the shapes of the lowercase.

The lowercase are the same as caps. :)

I might suggest posting some fonts on Dafont. I'm probably going to post some of my own fonts there.


winty5
winty5 Mon, 25th February, 2013

I posted some just now. Waitin' for them to be approved. Good luck! :)

I made Jester with a vector app called Glyphs.
