Very distinctive, one of your best. Lovin' the 'a' and 'A'.
Perfectly done. 10/10
Nice :) Definite 10/10 - good job!
What a beautiful fontStruction! Maybe »m« & »w« are a bit to wide? I like the lovely »&«!
@djnippa Thanks! The a is my favorite and is the letter that started the whole set.
@riccard0 and @thezenmaster1000 Thank you for the compliments.
@beate Thank you so much. I will try a couple alternates for those soon and post a pic.
Wow! Great and beautiful font, very elegant and distinctive. Well done! 10/10.
You certainly cook up a mean macaroni :)
Beautifully done and full of character (no pun intended ... honestly)
PS: I forgot to mention the much deserved 10/10
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Uptake” is now a Top Pick.
Great work. Many beautiful glyphs. Some letters with rounded bottom (C,G,U,W,a,b,c,d,e,t,u,w) seem to float above the base line. I don't think you could do anything about it at this small grid. I'm certain, you've noticed it yourself. (Ignore the last three sentences.) 10/10
@elmoyenique and @p2pnut Thank you for the compliments and high votes.
@Frodo7 Thank you. You are right about the floating letters, but there isn't much to be done about it on such a tight grid. Thanks for the vote!
@meek Thank you for the TP!
Only one thing:
The Simpler, The Better )))
10/10. Awesome work.
@architaraz Thank you!
This turned out nice. I love the tilde.
(PS: You're welcome.)
One of your best fonts. Clean, simple, and beautiful. Great no-frills, no-nonsense sans serif. 10/10
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Uptake” is now a current Featured FontStruction.
That's so awesome.
Thank you meek!
this font has the same power of archetyp. compliments
Love it! I just would like it that you include a non-double decker lowercase a.
@Wolf Lambert Thanks!
I added two alternates for the lowercase 'a'.
The two alternates can be found on the © (copyright symbol) and ® (registered symbol) characters.
@aphoria Many thanks! This font's one of my favorites now :D
@Wolf Lambert I went ahead and created a whole set of alternates. Check out Uptake Alternates.
very good. clean, simple and originally aphoria-ic. 10/10
@aphoria Nice, thank you!
This is just, WOW. I want to be like you. Like a pro.
This is cool. I'm using on my website. (non-commercial)
10 / 10 . .
@laynecom Thank you!
@minidonut lol...thank you too. I'm just a novice though. :)
@ibirover Thank you and cool about using it on your website. Can you post a link? I'd love to see it in use.
Sorry, but my website isn't done yet, and i'm having some technical difficulties getting the browser to recognize it. Probably has something to do with the permissions on it.
According to Internet Explorer, the permission on the font must be "Embeddable", but according to Windows, this is set to "Preview/Print". Is there a way to change this, maybe create a private clone with different permissions?
I don't think there is any way to do that within Fontstruct.
There are probably tools to make a truetype font embeddable, but I've never done it.
Maybe something like this?
Thanks, it might help.
@Font's addict What?
In French that means gentle. Probably just a spammer.
@winty5 Thanks for the translation.
I figured it was a spammer, but thought I'd give him a chance to respond. Looking at his profile, it was created today and that was the first comment made.
I've hidden it.
Nope. I tried it, it still doesn't work.
Never mind, I got it!
I'm using 2x2 filters and several composite and stacked bricks.
Excellent font, though you should add accented characters.
@LolMan321 I added a bunch of accented characters, the 'fi' and 'fl' ligatures, the 1/2, 1/4, and 3/4 fractions, the 2 and 3 superscripts, and probably a couple others.
If you need anything else, just ask. :)
Good Job! It's a good font that actually shows up well when you use it and looking at the picture above isn't actually super complicated.
Thanks. Yes, this font isn't overly complicated. The main features are the small grid size, composite angles (mostly 1:4, if I remember correctly), and some stacking.
Very nice design! One comment: I have downloaded it, and I think that á (a with accute accent) and à (a with grave accent) should switch positions, (the rest of the accented vowels seem OK). Thanks!
@hgps Thank you! And good catch on the á and à. I have corrected them.
How to set my avatar to the old grey question mark? I really want this!
But not from your font, not serif.
@Groszak Are you just asking how to change your avatar?
Hold your mouse cursor over the My Fontstruct tab near the top of the page and then click Profile.
I think Grozak was asking how to get the old default avatar back, not the new colourful ones.
Grozak, I'd ask Support about it. Click the Support tab at the top of the page. We also have an unofficial forum that you can use.
Sorry, misspelled "Groszak!" Whoops!
you can post avatar image
@Groszak: Here's the image:
i want to clone
no, i hate this. post other.
please change license to allow clones
@Groszak Sorry, no clones...but, I'm happy to show you the details if you want to know how a certain character is constructed.
please change license into Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial but delete "no derivatives"
@Groszak I don't allow cloning on most of my fontstructions. If you would like to see how certain characters are contstructed, I'm happy to share that info.
No, please already. No information of characters. I want to see bricks and which composites is used.
if grid>7x7 then it's large grid.
Don't post @@Groszak@ tags.
@Groszak I will not enable cloning.
As for the grid size, I did say "fairly small" in the description.
It's not 7x7. The x-height is 7 grid squares, but the widths vary. The lower case o is 5 grid squares wide and the lower case w is 9 grid squares wide.
In contrast, Aurora Light uses a large grid. The x-height is 132 grid squares and the cap height is close to 200 grid squares.
So, a font that uses many composites, brick stacks, and natural curves all on a 7 grid square x-height...that really is a pretty small grid.
Great font! I love the & and ~. But I believe the kerning on Î needs to be fixed:
@ETHproductions Good catch...fixed!
if GRID is larger than 7x7 then LARGE GRID used
@Groszak Ok, you're free to have your own definition of large grid...nobody has to agree with you.
Aphoriɑ, i've found your other name:Uptake. And please clone allow.
@Groszak Sorry, no clones...but, I'm happy to show you the details if you want to know how a certain character is constructed. @Groszak I will not enable cloning.
Aphoria said those. Do you think aphoria is going to change his/her license?
oh no! please enable cloning!
@Groszak You are free to message aphoria about a certain character, but cloning will not be enabled.
@ Groszak: why do you want to clone so many different fonts? Try to discover, experiment and learn by yourself. Work with the bricks, composites, stacking and filters. This will help you to learn how to get the lines you want. You will have 1) great fun manipulating bricks and 2) the feeling of achievement and pleasure when you have a font you made out of your own imagination with your own set of skills.
Study the shapes you like in other people's fonts, if you have done the work of assembling and manipulating the bricks you will quickly discover how the fontmakers here have made a particular font.
This will also help you to feel less stressed when you can't clone a font. You'll have so much fun making your personal font; this will put you on the path to personal recognition and eventually you'll have earned your own TP :)
So: have the courage to invent, imagine, try, fail and then succeed!
@Groszak: Listen to Aeolien's words of wisdom! Try creating your own work, not simply cloning things. It's MUCH more fun creating someting yourself than copying someone's works! Really! And some people choose not to enable clones because they don't want people like you recklessly copying their work!
post more comments.
@Groszak I can't tell if there is just a language barrier or you're just trolling.
Why do you always leave open HTML tags in your comments?
a jest! bold italic
@Uptake because fontstruct does not allow to close html.
don't close html
@Groszak What are you talking about? Fonstruct definitely allows you to close your tags. In fact, I have to keep coming back here and closing the ones you keep leaving open so everyone else doesn't have to look at a wall of bold, italic text.
no. please stop with (html/). Workaround: Bold text Bold stopped
i already stopped it after Bold Text text, and not works.
@Groszak Seriously, please stop.
Here is an example.
If you want this:
This is italic
This is bold
Then, enter your tags like this:
Oh lord at these comments. Well... the font is nice. =) 12/10
I agree that this font is great :) aaand it is nicely complete with all the accents I use, thanks for them :) *poking the computer to allow another 10/10 vote*
@Aarilight and @Aeolien Thank you both!
I'm quite amazed that this font is using a quite small grid.
PS: I think Groszak is just:
1. a spammer
2. not English
3. annoying everyone
PPS: I kinda liked the non-closed bold italic tags. Maybe you could use them after every post? As a surprise for every poster after you.
English is most likely not Groszak's first language (based on the name given on his profile page, probably a Slavic language like Russian), probably a language barrier.
@aphoria: Oh!!! :) THAT'S how you use word tags! I always forgot the "/"! Let me try using bold, italic, and strikeout...
Yay, it works! 8D I'm a typeface wizard!
A beautifully executed modular blackletter with extraordinary filigree around the caps. Usable despite the small character set.
