Excellent tryptic of fonts with a beautiful sense of balance.
Thank you for the short historical background of Viking runes. It was so interesting, I've spent two hours reading about ancient Viking culture.
Your work, a Latin adaptation apparently, is nice, but feels a bit sterile. It doesn't have the robustness, or the distressed antique look one might expect. But it's a good starting point. 10/10
I appreciate the comments so far. I would stress that this is a make-believe historical font that culminates into "Space Viking". I envisioned a Retro-Futuristic world where the Vikings rose to world domination and now are raiding other planet systems for glory, gold and the promise of dining in Valhalla after a glorious death on the battlefield (where ever that may be). Hence the refinement from rock-etched runes to a more "sterilized", yet still hyper-aggressive font-type. Younger Viking represents a dominant font-type in the fake future-date range of the 23 Century A.D.
Yay! I just raised the rating up by .2 stars! Could you make this clone-able, so I can edit it?
I you don't make it clonable, I will drop the ratings on all of your fonts drastically.
@zachariffic: That's not the way things work around here. Ratings are meant to reflect how good we think a design is - not a way of trying to blackmail someone!
If you want a different version of this font ... try creating it yourself. You are new here and, I guess, fairly young - we are always happy to help people get started with FontStruct, but don't like to see people being bullied.
Unusual and fun, Basmachi is a high-contrast, modular script with a Central-Asian flavour.
