I simply used elmoyenique's zilverstone eYe/FS as a learning tool.  I'm not done with it yet, but I think that it now has taken on a character of its own, so I'm making it public.

I've learned quite a bit from this font, but also can tell I have a lot left to learn, too.

Added a slash, hyphen/minus sign and an equals sign.  Saved using Unicode letters configuration so that it shows up when I archive it at Font-Journal.

Thanks to elmoyenique for making it public in the first place.  Thanks to everyone else who is helping me along the way, as well (and that's a lot of people).Clone%20of%20zilverstone%20eYe%2FFS%20by%20elmoyenique%20on%20July%2026th%2C%202013.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20simply%20used%20elmoyenique%27s%20zilverstone%20eYe%2FFS%20as%20a%20learning%20tool.%20%20I%27m%20not%20done%20with%20it%20yet%2C%20but%20I%20think%20that%20it%20now%20has%20taken%20on%20a%20character%20of%20its%20own%2C%20so%20I%27m%20making%20it%20public.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%27ve%20learned%20quite%20a%20bit%20from%20this%20font%2C%20but%20also%20can%20tell%20I%20have%20a%20lot%20left%20to%20learn%2C%20too.%0D%0A%0D%0AAdded%20a%20slash%2C%20hyphen%2Fminus%20sign%20and%20an%20equals%20sign.%20%20Saved%20using%20Unicode%20letters%20configuration%20so%20that%20it%20shows%20up%20when%20I%20archive%20it%20at%20Font-Journal.%0D%0A%0D%0AThanks%20to%20elmoyenique%20for%20making%20it%20public%20in%20the%20first%20place.%20%20Thanks%20to%20everyone%20else%20who%20is%20helping%20me%20along%20the%20way%2C%20as%20well%20%28and%20that%27s%20a%20lot%20of%20people%29.

The full Norse runic symbol set consists of just 16 runes, but there is a 'long-branch' set used by Danish which resides in the uppercase letters, and a 'short-twig' set which was used by Norwegian and Swedish peoples that is lowercase. 

These runes are a reduced form of the 'Elder Futhark' runes of the 2nd to 8th centuries and was used when Proto-Norse evolved into Old Norse.

I wanted to make the 'Elder Futhark' runes a part of this font, but there are clashes between the runes used in each of these versions. 

The term 'Futhark' is derived from the pronunciation of the first 6 symbols of the name. 'Fuþąrk', which reflects the actual first 6 symbols, is also acceptable and there are even Anglo-Saxon variants, as well.  As having a Norwegian ancestry Myself, I named this font after the more often used phonetic version because the 'þ' (þurisaz¹) and 'ą' (ansuz²) would probably be challenging across languages, keyboard maps, devices and platforms as far as keeping the name straight. 

The Elder Futhark Runes were said to have been handed down by the Norse gods and came directly from one of Odin's (aka: Oden or Woden) conquests over the giants.  

Most believed that runes were magical or holy.  But they were used for everything, including graffiti.

This "Younger Futhark" font uses the Unicode Letter Sets (so that it will preview correctly on Font-Journal.com and other online font catalog sites).

The following letters were used, given in order of how they appear in the Younger Futhark runic alphabet...


Younger Futhark Long-Branch Runes:
F U Þ Ą R K   H N I A S   T B M L ʀ

Younger Futhark Short Twig Runes:
f u þ ą r k   h n i a s   t b m l ʁ


Notice that there are two R/r characters.  The last rune is the transliteration of a small latin capital R ('ʀ'), and since I needed 2 different versions of that one, I originally used the "R/r with stroke" ('Ɍ'/'ɍ'), because I couldn't find the small capital R and I knew I needed 2 versions of it for the long-branch and the short branch versions of the rune.  I thought if anyone derives something from it, that might be the least used character, and I am willing to listen to better suggestions.  But then, I found the small capital R and noticed it had an inverted version with it, so these two small capital R characters ('ʀ'/'ʁ', found in the IPA Extensions Letter Set/Block) are used after all.

Also, there are actually two versions of the A/a. The first A/a is actually an A/a with Ogonek ('Ą'/'ą'), but as stated I am still using an 'a' in the name for clarity. It seems everyone is doing the same, anyways.

Additionally, I used the following characters to allow easier access to the wayward characters in the Latin Supplemental and both of the first Latin Extended Letter Sets/Blocks:

(A with Ogonek) Ą: E
(a with Ogonek) ą: e
(Capital Thorn) Þ: P
(smaller thorn) þ: p
(small Capital R) R: Q (or Ɍ) 
(Inverted sm Cap R) ʁ: Q (or ɍ)

After all, there are so few runes it seems foolish to not take some of the space left over after the transliterations which is free in the Basic Latin letter set.  E because it was another nearby vowel which can sound similar, P because the Þ (Thorn) looks identical, and Q mainly because of its proximity to the R.

Since this version is dedicated to the Younger Futhark runes and does not include a set for the Elder Futhark runes, it just seemed moronic not to do it.

I believe that this is a faithful and true representation of the spirit of Younger Futhark runes used by the Norse Viking Hordes (the term 'Viking' actually is a verb that refers to "Raiding/Plundering", BTW).  However, these runes were carved into wood (usually the long-branch version) and stone (usually the short twig version) as a part of very circular and flowing designs, often within an overline and underline or scrolls accompanying art, and not so much used in straight lines.  Therefore Photoshop text warping effects are encouraged. 

Because these runes were often used with a line over/under or both, I have included those characters, as well.  I am also making a subscript Service Mark and superscript Trademark using the runes.


HISTORY:

I've been working pretty hard on this since I started it on Monday, August 26th, 2013, only taking breaks for work, eat, sleep and my operation earlier today (Yep, just had to mention that).  

Released as conditional use Freeware (Copyrighted freely available software from this site or Font-Journal.com) on August 28th, 2013, @ 9:09pm Central Time, under the condition that I get credit for my part in this work and that My contribution as the original artist remains intact and unaltered (see LICENSE, which follows below).

On August 29th, 2013, I finally checked out the finished font and was floored when I saw F's all over it.  Not just BIG BLACK ASS F's, but HUGE FontStruct LOGOS.  And not just as characters, but overwriting My runes so that you couldn't even see them.  So, I had to turn around and put a stupid dot in there as a place holder so that the Basic Latin Letter Block wouldn't be overwritten with more F's than I had runes.  

I gotta tell ya, that's a SPAM move if I ever saw one.  A guy can't make a set of runes in the Basic Latin Letter Set without being visually spammed and the all the art overpowered by F's!

C'MON MAN!!!

We as businesses have to think about our brand.  The fact that FontStruct will overwrite every blank character in the Basic with their F'n logo is really smarmy.  I can't actually believe that anyone does this.

So, after putting one single dot block and changing the width of EVERY damn unused character, I found this site:

http://www.omniglot.com/writing/runic.htm

...which offered a few more alternative runes that I could include in the Basic Latin to fill that set up a little.  

So, now I have some extra alternatives.  I tried to continue to keep the long-branch runes in uppercase, and the short twig runes in the lowercase.  And apparently Norge had a whole few other options, as well.

There are variants of the M/m in the O/o (because there is a dot and a circle variant).  There are variants of the Norwegian A/a in the Y/y (because it kinda looks like that). 

I am a bit confused about the Norwegian 's', it looks like every variant is there in one character.  So it probably means that any of them will do.  But I figured I'd be safe and put the 3 variants in one character, the unused 'W' (since altogether they resemble it), and the 2 squiggly s runes together in the lowercase 'w' (which still looks similar).  Then, I took the inverted Norwegian 's' variant and stuck it in the 'z' hole (because if you turn it on it's side, it looks like it).

There is also an alternate short twig 'h' rune that sort of points down, I put in 'g'. 

I added another alternate, a Norwegian Futhark rune for 'ą'.  Because if you capped off the two lower left arms, it would look like a 'd', I put it there and in the 'D' because it isn't actually a short twig rune. 

I know, the logic is a little weird, but it all has to go somewhere, and that is My reasoning.

I finally added the subscript SM and the superscript TM as runes for the heck of it (but I doubt they would be legal/enforceable, even if added to runes).

I added the Solidus ('/'), Reversed Solidus ('\') and the Vertical Bar ('|') with an extra little length because those can be handy if needed in setting up those scrolly designs, and they will reach the overline and underline.

Then I read that sometimes dots would separate words so I started decorating the unused characters with dots and I can't believe the crap I just crapped out.

Jeepers.

Needless to say, I won't be doing the Elder Futhark runes (even though there are more characters) because I absolutely hate having to have those lame dots anywhere in with the runes in the Basic Latin letter set.  Not unless there is a change in policy here.  Because I HATE SPAM!  And I don't want to be seen as a spammer, nor do I want to be seen as lame.

C'MON, MAN.

On September 9th, 2013; I went in and redid the dots.  I made dot style punctuation just because to do all the same dot configuration in every unused space seemed drull.  This time I used mostly bigger dots so that they did have a presence and didn't look like a piece of dust on the screen when I previewed them.

Umbreon126 pointed out the runic character code table I need...

http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U16A0.pdf

...although I will probably have to read up a bit more (but the document points to the specific resources I need).

I have to reboot to get My browser cache cleared, will be back at it again later, copying the runes into their respective places in the actual runic alphabet character table according to the chart/table above.

ISSUES:

Currently, I have the Overline in the Macron character, I need to find where it's actually supposed to be.  ;) 

I still have to find an accurate map of the runes letter set, then I will copy the runes there, but I created these to specifically have keyboard access to them in the first place.

I'm also looking for the list of words these runes represented (like the Elder Futhark runes have). 


FOOTNOTES: 

¹) 'þurisaz' is the rune name, which is a Latin Letter Thorn ('Þ' or 'þ').
²) 'ansuz' is the rune name, which is a Latin Letter A with Ogonek ('Ą' or 'ą'), and ansuz also became the Latin Letter ('Æ' or 'æ').

Most of this info comes from referencing 'Runes' in Wikipedia...

Again, this is another font project that I've always wanted to do because of My Nordic heritage, that I finally could do thanks to Fontstruct and the awesome Fontstructor.

I ran into a few issues (July 24th, 2013) with spacing and used the serif styling  in the caps to help resolve it (July 28th, 2013). Eventually, I carried that style throughout all the caps that could logically support it, design-wise.

This has evolving into something else though, completely different than the font I cloned it from, though there are some similarities, still.  

I wanted to call it Westwind, but there is whole collection of fonts by Westwind, so "Western Breeze" was my second choice (and my original thought before Google informed me that Westwind might be pretty darn inappropriate.

The style?  Serifs usually pointing down or to the left are present, but no serifs that would normally point to the right.  When using the caps for titling it gives the impression that a breeze runs over the characters from right to left, or that they are moving to the right.

This one just has the basic latin character set and a few extra symbols such as the cents sign, $, Copyright and Registered Trademark, symbols we often need.  I'm trying to keep this one light so that IF it works as a webfont it will make a quick download.  

Oh, the Pursuede font branch saved the lowercase sans-serifs once I figured out how to do some lowercase serifs.

August 7th, 2013: Moved my logos to the replacement characters in Specials.  Made small changes to the S, a, f, m, s, t, and y to address styling and spacing issues.   Added TM, TEL and SM symbols in Letterlike Symbols. Adjusted the Polish alternative character (S w/cedilla) to reflect the changes I made in the S. Also tried to put a little more space than I usually do between the letters so that the serifs don't run into the next letter (but this looks kind of unavoidable at small sizes).

August 13th: Edited the A, B, H, f & t to reflect more of a breeze/motion. Changed the r. Looped the tail end of the L & t up a hair more so that spacing looks better.  Because certain letters had a hole instead of a hard stop on one side to reflect the the shape of the letter better, I took out the soft round corners on one side of the B, D, P, R, b, d, m, n, p & q.  

If anyone prefers the softer holes, I can clone it and put them back in for you, but I like this one like this.  

If you have any suggestions on any special letters/characters you would like added, let me know.  I will be happy to add a few.

Once I was done I did notice that the new NFL Vikings uniforms have a similar style to reflect motion (in the opposite direction), but in a boxier font.  I might try that for the heck of it.  ;)  But I have a lot of font projects I want to get to, so don't wait for it, if you want it and it's not in my portfolio, make one!  ;)Originally%20branched%20from%20the%20developing%20Broadbill%20font%27s%20uppercase%20character%20set.%20I%20ran%20into%20a%20few%20issues%20%28July%2024th%2C%202013%29%20with%20spacing%20and%20used%20the%20serif%20styling%20%20in%20the%20caps%20to%20help%20resolve%20it%20%28July%2028th%2C%202013%29.%20Eventually%2C%20I%20carried%20that%20style%20throughout%20all%20the%20caps%20that%20could%20logically%20support%20it%2C%20design-wise.%0D%0A%0D%0AThis%20has%20evolving%20into%20something%20else%20though%2C%20completely%20different%20than%20the%20font%20I%20cloned%20it%20from%2C%20though%20there%20are%20some%20similarities%2C%20still.%20%20%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20wanted%20to%20call%20it%20Westwind%2C%20but%20there%20is%20whole%20collection%20of%20fonts%20by%20Westwind%2C%20so%20%22Western%20Breeze%22%20was%20my%20second%20choice%20%28and%20my%20original%20thought%20before%20Google%20informed%20me%20that%20Westwind%20might%20be%20pretty%20darn%20inappropriate.%0D%0A%0D%0AThe%20style%3F%20%20Serifs%20usually%20pointing%20down%20or%20to%20the%20left%20are%20present%2C%20but%20no%20serifs%20that%20would%20normally%20point%20to%20the%20right.%20%20When%20using%20the%20caps%20for%20titling%20it%20gives%20the%20impression%20that%20a%20breeze%20runs%20over%20the%20characters%20from%20right%20to%20left%2C%20or%20that%20they%20are%20moving%20to%20the%20right.%0D%0A%0D%0AThis%20one%20just%20has%20the%20basic%20latin%20character%20set%20and%20a%20few%20extra%20symbols%20such%20as%20the%20cents%20sign%2C%20%24%2C%20Copyright%20and%20Registered%20Trademark%2C%20symbols%20we%20often%20need.%20%20I%27m%20trying%20to%20keep%20this%20one%20light%20so%20that%20IF%20it%20works%20as%20a%20webfont%20it%20will%20make%20a%20quick%20download.%20%20%0D%0A%0D%0AOh%2C%20the%20Pursuede%20font%20branch%20saved%20the%20lowercase%20sans-serifs%20once%20I%20figured%20out%20how%20to%20do%20some%20lowercase%20serifs.%0D%0A%0D%0AAugust%207th%2C%202013%3A%20Moved%20my%20logos%20to%20the%20replacement%20characters%20in%20Specials.%20%20Made%20small%20changes%20to%20the%20S%2C%20a%2C%20f%2C%20m%2C%20s%2C%20t%2C%20and%20y%20to%20address%20styling%20and%20spacing%20issues.%20%20%20Added%20TM%2C%20TEL%20and%20SM%20symbols%20in%20Letterlike%20Symbols.%20Adjusted%20the%20Polish%20alternative%20character%20%28S%20w%2Fcedilla%29%20to%20reflect%20the%20changes%20I%20made%20in%20the%20S.%20Also%20tried%20to%20put%20a%20little%20more%20space%20than%20I%20usually%20do%20between%20the%20letters%20so%20that%20the%20serifs%20don%27t%20run%20into%20the%20next%20letter%20%28but%20this%20looks%20kind%20of%20unavoidable%20at%20small%20sizes%29.%0D%0A%0D%0AAugust%2013th%3A%20Edited%20the%20A%2C%20B%2C%20H%2C%20f%20%26%20t%20to%20reflect%20more%20of%20a%20breeze%2Fmotion.%20Changed%20the%20r.%20Looped%20the%20tail%20end%20of%20the%20L%20%26%20t%20up%20a%20hair%20more%20so%20that%20spacing%20looks%20better.%20%20Because%20certain%20letters%20had%20a%20hole%20instead%20of%20a%20hard%20stop%20on%20one%20side%20to%20reflect%20the%20the%20shape%20of%20the%20letter%20better%2C%20I%20took%20out%20the%20soft%20round%20corners%20on%20one%20side%20of%20the%20B%2C%20D%2C%20P%2C%20R%2C%20b%2C%20d%2C%20m%2C%20n%2C%20p%20%26%20q.%20%20%0D%0A%0D%0AIf%20anyone%20prefers%20the%20softer%20holes%2C%20I%20can%20clone%20it%20and%20put%20them%20back%20in%20for%20you%2C%20but%20I%20like%20this%20one%20like%20this.%20%20%0D%0A%0D%0AIf%20you%20have%20any%20suggestions%20on%20any%20special%20letters%2Fcharacters%20you%20would%20like%20added%2C%20let%20me%20know.%20%20I%20will%20be%20happy%20to%20add%20a%20few.%0D%0A%0D%0AOnce%20I%20was%20done%20I%20did%20notice%20that%20the%20new%20NFL%20Vikings%20uniforms%20have%20a%20similar%20style%20to%20reflect%20motion%20%28in%20the%20opposite%20direction%29%2C%20but%20in%20a%20boxier%20font.%20%20I%20might%20try%20that%20for%20the%20heck%20of%20it.%20%20%3B%29%20%20But%20I%20have%20a%20lot%20of%20font%20projects%20I%20want%20to%20get%20to%2C%20so%20don%27t%20wait%20for%20it%2C%20if%20you%20want%20it%20and%20it%27s%20not%20in%20my%20portfolio%2C%20make%20one%21%20%20%3B%29

This font started out as an attempt to make a logo for one of My online ventures, as I wanted to make a font to base the logo on, in the style I have in mind.  As I built this font I found  that I was having a great deal of difficulty because the serifs (simple flourishes)  need to be available with the widest part resting at 1/2 block (and pointing in all various directions), but it was impossible to composite such blocks as I could not select or designate any empty blocks to be a part of that composite, thereby bringing work on that font to a halt.

It seems that I cannot make the kind of font I require for that website.  Toying with things I realized how to create a different kind of font altogether.  But as I create using those blocks under that premis, I was destroying My original font.  So I saved it as a clone here (on July 24th, 2013). Now I can develop either font and they do look closely related.

But now I need to come up with a name for this version of the font.  As it is nothing like what I wanted to create originally, I guess I'll call it...

Broadbill

I noticed, after downloading the font, that the TTF file is still called Worthful (Worthful.ttf) which was the original name, but it shows up as Broadbill in your applications that will use the font (Word/Photoshop, etc...). So I would encourage you to rename the .ttf file to "Broadbill.ttf" because eventually I will come up with a Worthful font and it will use the Worthful.ttf filename (as well as the Worthful font name). 

This font has the full basic latin character set, the supplemental character set, and I am just starting on the first latin character extension package.

This was intended to be a break from the other styles I've been producing here, my first serif font.  It's taken a lot more time because of the serifs.  One might want to space this font out just a tad more than usual so that the serifs or adjacent characters don't run into each other, though I did try to address that a bit.

I think this font would look good as a decorative paybill font, or as a headline on posters and such.

I have tried to address certain spacing issues that occur because the serifs are exactly a half block wide, but it is this same inner round corner that makes up the top of most of the looped part of the characters, lending this font it's open style and giving it an almost stencil-like quality. The best thing would be to be able to set the letter spacing width at 1/2 block widths.

August 10th:  Moved My Trademarks to the replacement characters.  Changed the A & H crossbars slightly so that it's more consistent with the E & F.  Redesigned the K.  Also adjusted the B, P & R to conform more to the intended styling.  I'm still looking for another a different style for the M & N.  Modified the S to more closely reflect the desired styling.  Changed the rounded lowercase letters and some of the numbers to more closely reflect the preferred styling. 

August 11th: Added the TM, TEL & SM characters from Letterlike Symbols.  Applied the same styling changes to the accented character counterparts.

Unless we find anything else to fix, I think this should be good, at least for a while, now.  I have a few other font projects I can't wait to tackle.  But definitely get ahold of me if you see something that needs to be addressed, or if you have a special character request.I%27m%20not%20sure%20if%20anyone%20likes%20my%20fonts%20or%20not%2C%20but%20here%27s%20another%20go%20at%20it.%20%20This%20font%20started%20out%20as%20an%20attempt%20to%20make%20a%20logo%20for%20one%20of%20My%20online%20ventures%2C%20as%20I%20wanted%20to%20make%20a%20font%20to%20base%20the%20logo%20on%2C%20in%20the%20style%20I%20have%20in%20mind.%20%20As%20I%20built%20this%20font%20I%20found%20%20that%20I%20was%20having%20a%20great%20deal%20of%20difficulty%20because%20the%20serifs%20%28simple%20flourishes%29%20%20need%20to%20be%20available%20with%20the%20widest%20part%20resting%20at%201%2F2%20block%20%28and%20pointing%20in%20all%20various%20directions%29%2C%20but%20it%20was%20impossible%20to%20composite%20such%20blocks%20as%20I%20could%20not%20select%20or%20designate%20any%20empty%20blocks%20to%20be%20a%20part%20of%20that%20composite%2C%20thereby%20bringing%20work%20on%20that%20font%20to%20a%20halt.%0D%0A%0D%0AIt%20seems%20that%20I%20cannot%20make%20the%20kind%20of%20font%20I%20require%20for%20that%20website.%20%20Toying%20with%20things%20I%20realized%20how%20to%20create%20a%20different%20kind%20of%20font%20altogether.%20%20But%20as%20I%20create%20using%20those%20blocks%20under%20that%20premis%2C%20I%20was%20destroying%20My%20original%20font.%20%20So%20I%20saved%20it%20as%20a%20clone%20here%20%28on%20July%2024th%2C%202013%29.%20Now%20I%20can%20develop%20either%20font%20and%20they%20do%20look%20closely%20related.%0D%0A%0D%0ABut%20now%20I%20need%20to%20come%20up%20with%20a%20name%20for%20this%20version%20of%20the%20font.%20%20As%20it%20is%20nothing%20like%20what%20I%20wanted%20to%20create%20originally%2C%20I%20guess%20I%27ll%20call%20it...%0D%0A%0D%0ABroadbill%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20noticed%2C%20after%20downloading%20the%20font%2C%20that%20the%20TTF%20file%20is%20still%20called%20Worthful%20%28Worthful.ttf%29%20which%20was%20the%20original%20name%2C%20but%20it%20shows%20up%20as%20Broadbill%20in%20your%20applications%20that%20will%20use%20the%20font%20%28Word%2FPhotoshop%2C%20etc...%29.%20So%20I%20would%20encourage%20you%20to%20rename%20the%20.ttf%20file%20to%20%22Broadbill.ttf%22%20because%20eventually%20I%20will%20come%20up%20with%20a%20Worthful%20font%20and%20it%20will%20use%20the%20Worthful.ttf%20filename%20%28as%20well%20as%20the%20Worthful%20font%20name%29.%20%0D%0A%0D%0AThis%20font%20has%20the%20full%20basic%20latin%20character%20set%2C%20the%20supplemental%20character%20set%2C%20and%20I%20am%20just%20starting%20on%20the%20first%20latin%20character%20extension%20package.%0D%0A%0D%0AThis%20was%20intended%20to%20be%20a%20break%20from%20the%20other%20styles%20I%27ve%20been%20producing%20here%2C%20my%20first%20serif%20font.%20%20It%27s%20taken%20a%20lot%20more%20time%20because%20of%20the%20serifs.%20%20One%20might%20want%20to%20space%20this%20font%20out%20just%20a%20tad%20more%20than%20usual%20so%20that%20the%20serifs%20or%20adjacent%20characters%20don%27t%20run%20into%20each%20other%2C%20though%20I%20did%20try%20to%20address%20that%20a%20bit.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20think%20this%20font%20would%20look%20good%20as%20a%20decorative%20paybill%20font%2C%20or%20as%20a%20headline%20on%20posters%20and%20such.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20have%20tried%20to%20address%20certain%20spacing%20issues%20that%20occur%20because%20the%20serifs%20are%20exactly%20a%20half%20block%20wide%2C%20but%20it%20is%20this%20same%20inner%20round%20corner%20that%20makes%20up%20the%20top%20of%20most%20of%20the%20looped%20part%20of%20the%20characters%2C%20lending%20this%20font%20it%27s%20open%20style%20and%20giving%20it%20an%20almost%20stencil-like%20quality.%20The%20best%20thing%20would%20be%20to%20be%20able%20to%20set%20the%20letter%20spacing%20width%20at%201%2F2%20block%20widths.%0D%0A%0D%0AAugust%2010th%3A%20%20Moved%20My%20Trademarks%20to%20the%20replacement%20characters.%20%20Changed%20the%20A%20%26%20H%20crossbars%20slightly%20so%20that%20it%27s%20more%20consistent%20with%20the%20E%20%26%20F.%20%20Redesigned%20the%20K.%20%20Also%20adjusted%20the%20B%2C%20P%20%26%20R%20to%20conform%20more%20to%20the%20intended%20styling.%20%20I%27m%20still%20looking%20for%20another%20a%20different%20style%20for%20the%20M%20%26%20N.%20%20Modified%20the%20S%20to%20more%20closely%20reflect%20the%20desired%20styling.%20%20Changed%20the%20rounded%20lowercase%20letters%20and%20some%20of%20the%20numbers%20to%20more%20closely%20reflect%20the%20preferred%20styling.%20%0D%0A%0D%0AAugust%2011th%3A%20Added%20the%20TM%2C%20TEL%20%26%20SM%20characters%20from%20Letterlike%20Symbols.%20%20Applied%20the%20same%20styling%20changes%20to%20the%20accented%20character%20counterparts.%0D%0A%0D%0AUnless%20we%20find%20anything%20else%20to%20fix%2C%20I%20think%20this%20should%20be%20good%2C%20at%20least%20for%20a%20while%2C%20now.%20%20I%20have%20a%20few%20other%20font%20projects%20I%20can%27t%20wait%20to%20tackle.%20%20But%20definitely%20get%20ahold%20of%20me%20if%20you%20see%20something%20that%20needs%20to%20be%20addressed%2C%20or%20if%20you%20have%20a%20special%20character%20request.

I'm still wondering why I named it Persuede... changed spelling to Pursuede because it seems more intriguing.  It just seems like a more magical spelling and should be a good unique tag/font name.

Full basic latin character set with the latin supplement pack (Copyright & Registered Trademark symbols, etc...).  I started working on the first extended set of latin characters, but only just.

I also created a few of the Greek symbols if I could, using the boxes I had available.  Some of those Greek characters are a little too round/curly/squiggly for me to attempt to reproduce without some new blocks.  But the greek characters sometimes offer the same letters (ie: A, H, M, N, K & Y), so they were done with some variations over the original style in the latin set, so that there is a variety of character styles available should you need them.

It is intended to be a skinny font, so it probably won't look good on web pages unless you are using it for larger headings, logos and graphics.  

I'm going to keep working on it, but will take a break from it for a while.  But I will be getting back to this soon.  I definitely want to finish the extra 2 extended latin character sets and add at least a few arrows eventually.

Updated some of the characters (July 27th, 2013) to more complete the style I was trying to communicate.  Updated the and-sign and addressed some funky crap that didn't need to be there.  It seems pretty clean, now.  I hope it's ready for primetime.

August 1st I added some miscellaneous characters such as currency signs, the TM symbol (which I finally found in Letter Like Symbols), an SM symbol (only mine is a subscript as traditional service marks should be), some arrows, a home glyph, bullet, and other stuff.  

Then, on August 2nd, 2013 I finished off Latin Extended-A at 2:50am.

August 4th & 5th, 2013: Finished off the 'Superscripts and Subscripts' letter set, added various characters in 'Miscellaneous Symbols' (card suite, crosses) and some important "General Punctuation' characters.

I'm calling this one done unless there are special requests for certain characters, or you point out a mistake I need to correct.

I probably have a few adjustments to make (the little i & j characters), but I'm getting tired and have to get some shut-eye before work tonight (graveyard shift unloading trucks and I'm disabled). If you want to download it, that's fine. You can use it for personal and commercial use. Even though I think of it as freeware, I still maintain my Copyright (2013), so just don't redistribute it.

August 2nd, 2013: Redesigned some characters (m, n, w) and made other more readable (a) while adding some styling to others (g, p, q). Added a few currency signs and trade/service marks.

August 14th, 2013:  Edited the D.  Going to take a step back, not sure if I like how I changed it, it seems too wildly different from all the other blocky curves.
