I genuinely enjoy creating fonts. Unfortunately, I have never had the extra $400.00 to shell out for Fontographer (which according to the demos and freeware is the only font editor that will run on any of my systems). I have been having fun with these free online font tools, and Fonstruct is among the best. I also design websites and graphics, I sell domains and hosting. Plus, I have a few other online ventures. I admin the Web Design and Development Group which has a presence at Google Groups as well as Facebook. But my main pursuit is art and challenging myself to be the artist I am (and keep improving). I have really enjoyed FontStruct so far, and I will stick around as long as I feel I am a part of this community, as I had learned some great things, was happy with my progress and excited about my projects and future. But need feedback on my work to feel that I am a part of this artist's community, as well.
Clone of zkalpelbar eYe/FS.
Learn from the masters, right? That's what this one is about. So far my idea is that the lowercase are cool, but I wanted to fiddle with the capitals a bit.This is a clone of zkalpelbar eYe/FS
This is what I intended to make at first, but I made a cute little mistake with some of the characters that I actually kind of enjoy the first time out. So I renamed the original from 'Xwept' to 'Xwept Small', then cloned it as 'Xwept', fixed it and here you go.
Includes basic latin and the TM, SM & Tel symbols.
If you want any specific characters it is missing, just say so.
I would appreciate any feedback, at all. Thank you!This is a clone of Xwept Small
Stormy was inspired by a font used often by the Sioux Falls Storm (Ten National Indoor Football League Championships). This one is not based on their logo, but the font and numbers used on the jerseys the team wears.
OK, I think I have enough characters to release it as freeware (version 1.0). If you like it for a website, you can use it as a web font. You can clone it, download it, whatever. Hopefully, if you use it as a web font, you will add a link to my site, Font Journal (http://www.Font-Journal.com), in the credits of your website or blog (professional sites & blogs give credit for the resources used that aren't theirs), if you use it or distribute it, but that is not required.
I wish I could include a description with every archive, which is why I tend to usually distribute my fonts through my own site, so that I can setup an official distribution archive. But, I know there is more of a shot at getting it out there if FontStruct has an archive, too. Eventually once I get a few more UI characters added, I will put an official distribution archive up on Font Journal, too.
You can edit, modify, append or do whatever you need to do with this font, including sing it commercially or in creating your own art/graphic works, as long as all further redistributed derivatives remain under the same "Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike" license.
This is a freeware font, it should never be sold, or even be included as a part of a paid collection, it is FREE.
I added my logos, the Copyright, Trademarks and an assortment of little Dingbats. I like to use Dingbats for the UI when I design websites, so I tried to include quite a few without weighing the font down too much, so that it will still load quickly. But loading a vector based font for UI stuff is a lot easier and quicker than loading graphic files.
Any questions? Go ahead and ask!
There may be a few issues, although it has been published before, this is the point I have been trying to get to before making it public. I just noticed that some of the Dingbat characters didn't save right, so there is obviously still work to do.
If you see anything that needs to be addressed, be sure to shout out at me, I'll see if I can fix anything that needs to be addressed.
Clone of Sketchy [the font here was previously named Zmoothed Zketchy, & 'Zketchy Zmoothed Caps (Preview)' was spawned from it, but I decided I liked 'Sketchy Ink' to make it a sort of family name].
As two or three people have expressed interest and encouragement with this project, I can easily say that is my most anticipated font to date. ;)
I renamed it and smoothed out its pixelated origins. I hope you like it. If you use it, I'd love to hear about it (but that's not required).
OK, July 4th (USA's Independence Day) 2014 and I'm going to release/publish it. I still have some characters to smooth the jagies out of, but all of the upper and lower case basic latin letter set characters are done, and some of the punctuation, as well (the same punctuation as the preview I released with the upper case letters). Happy Birthday, U.S.!
Of course, it's not done yet. Right now the Basic Latin letterset and the © are done. I think the TM, TEL and SM symbols, and perhaps my logo. But I wanted to make sure that a couple of people knew I was working on it.
The numbers are simple cards with dots because I am still using this font to protest our poor education system, and how my son works way too hard at math in order to learn because we teach our kids so terribly poorly (which is why we rank so poor in education against the rest of the world, and why we have so many ignorant people in America).This is a clone of Sketchy
Restyled clone of Mothership (with no alternates so that this particular style edit is more solid).
This variant makes a departure from the inspiration of the logo and simply tries to tie it all up neatly in a style that is more closely associated with the used on the 'Celebration Day' album. more specifically, Dirigible uses the P and p that is shaped more like the R, r, D and d. I extended the leg of the J, N and P (in the style of the M).
I narrowed the T, U, V and W, then added a long leg to the W and w.
I've added half a block to the underline so that on the lowercase letter underlines will overlap the L and Z and there is no gap.
So that we can still use the lowercase characters whether they follow an L or Z or not, I am getting rid of the end quasi-serifs there (which usually completed the end foot of the L or Z). This should make the font more usable.
I opened up the space between the top and middle cross leg of the B, b, E, e, F and f so that it is more legible at smaller sizes. That created certain alignment problems, so I nixed the second crossbar of the A, a, H, h and 4, then I aligned the remaining crossbar with the others.
I'm not sure where to put the end serif. I was thinking the non-breaking space, but that would destroy some functionality. But I want it easily accessible. I decided to make a period that would work and maybe do double duty as a period. Hope that works.
I took the extra alternates out of this one and added some accented letters in this same style, this time.
I started making a variety of letters that the system didn't copy letters to, as well (just playing with it).This is a clone of Mothership
Clone of vengeance 2012.
It's supposed to look like someone took their finger and smeared the center line of all of the letters. Smooshed or smudged? Smush!
July 14th, 2014: Added my initials and logo in the Specials letter set (along with all the other artists' initials and/or icon/avatar), and the TM, TEL and SM symbols in the Letterlike Symbols letter set.This is a clone of vengeance 2012
