An ongoing experiment fusing perfection with imperfection, this is my attempt to use the limitations of fontstruct as an aesthetic in and of itself, without resorting to an enormous grid to create an optically smoothed typeface. Still working on spacing and filling out the character set. Three new weights are on the way ... bold, light, and thin ... late 2012?This is a clone

Another 2x filter experiment, paired with heavy usage of the Macaroni bricks. Based on the original logo for the Sony Walkman Cassette Tape Players from the 1980s. Type "Walkman" in the User Input to see!

Light, condensed typeface based on a sort of rhombic pattern counterbalanced by a strong emphasis on the vertical (resulting in the blackletter look noticed by riccard0).
As computed by fontstruct, letter-size is roughly 3/4 of common definitions, which means that you have to set Sycamore to e.g. 24pt if you want to achieve a 18pt impression.
Also available in Book style.

A basic design principle, namely to emulate newspaper headline type. A few details to be worked out, but it's pretty much there. Seems to work well at all sizes.

A tribute to Othmar Motter, 1927-2010. A fontstructed lowercase version of his iconic Motter Tektura.

An outline version of BlackRhino. And I'm aware of the fact that the "white" rhino is really light gray.

An improvement of the former (Headless/Tangle, now called Tangled Hairline); This version is bolder and simpler with more striking 'chaos motion' lines. This version is perhaps more decorative looking than the original and definitely more ordered in the sense of the letterforms to enable usability.This is a clone

An alternate version of "bootlegger," optimized for smaller scaling in print. "Bootlegger-speakeasy" helps you maintain legibility. For use with original Bootlegger font.This is a clone of bootlegger

A "deconstructed" exercise. I got the idea when I fontstructed in a grid that turned out to be a bit narrow. I could only place two of three horizontal lines where I wanted them, so I decided to see what happened if I simply skipped the third. The result turned out to be quite legible even though many glyphs had gaps where the important baseline should be. I especially liked the lower case letters. The concept is presumably not unique though...

Font is self-descriptive. Guess if I did the UC or LC first!! :D Yes this is the font I have been working on for such a long time...

Inspired by the fantastic "MICR" font set. And the Solaris font design from the nineties by Büro Destruct (ah, those were the days). Old but good ideas brought to Fonstruct. Fun and easy as pie.

Another typographic bulldozer. Inspired by "Astro" and other excellent fonts by the Japanese designers at Maniackers Design (http://mksd.jp/).

a 2x2 brick size font./////////////////
I had fun playing around with this font, espacialy small details which are hardly noticeable: diatrics, odd lenght angles, compromise the design itself of a glyph with kerning and aspect ration with the rest of the alphabet. well fell free to spot me anything non-harmonized.
2x2 brick size VS 67.5° angles... I create bricks which can overlape the regular one on half of it... so it offer the possibilities to make odd size angle glyphs like v y, etc. Dont' know if somebody else did it before there is so many fonts now in FS, so it's hard top follow everything.This is a clone

A glyph made with glyphs, I dreamed this image and I could not take it off of my mind untill I've crafted this that you see. It's a little joke about the matrix of our creations... and now it lives in FS.

Loosely based on the custom lettering I did for my DINOSAUR logo (http://www.thedinosaur.ca).
I wanted to make an old-school compressed gothic that didn't look like it was made in fontstruct.
Could be good for movie poster credits.

My remix of "Revolution" by Douglas Carter, 1994. I made it a bit heavier and added upper case characters. It´s a robotic deco style, very square and compressed, but slightly rounded inner corners (visible at large sizes) adds some life to it.
