8 downloads8%20downloads899 glyphs99%20glyphs99This is not your normal "ABC" font, because you can find a billion of those and I found it exhaustive to explore. This typeface uses musical symbols and calligraphy to represent our commonly used letters, numbers, and punctuation. I am a graduate student in music, and I used several fine scores as inspiration. There are many rules that I was following, which would be redundantly stated here, so I will only surmise that tender care to the pixel was taken on as many occasions as I could to replicate with precision the various glyphs found here. Some words about the download:
When downloaded, the font works best at 38 point. Also, due to my assigning a glyph to the spacebar, there is a vertical line that always follows the cursor (the measure line). At this time I have not tested as to whether this anomoly prints or not. Finally, there were some unicode mistakes that required me to repeat the ", and there is one glyph that may not register on some computers. Otherwise: Enjoy using a more unusual - musical - typface.
P.S. If you do have questions, I will answer them all. I used strict rules for construction, so I can submit information beyond the precision you would possibly require.
Thanks!

My thought process was that actions speak louder than words, and the Punk movement in the ‘70s helped people through a lot of social and economic unrest; punk communicates effectively. Consequently, I approached creating a typeface with the DIY mentality of punk. I observed the approach of Jamie Reid, the zine culture and various band posters to identify with the distinctive cut and paste style. I then considered how this could be used to communicate with more than one audience at once while retaining the punk aesthetic. This led me to create a typeface which is conflicted between serif and sans-serif; it features jerky counters contrasting with chipped bowls; it’s a font designed to appear cut up and pasted back together in line with the traditional ethics of DIY punk.

From the beginning I wanted to create a unique design, looking at sound I decided to use my voice as the starting point. After recording myself pronouncing the alphabet and uploading it to a sound editor I looked at the different shapes and patterns it created. This was my voice that was unique to me and was the inspiration for the typeface. I then researched fonts and looked at bold, chunky designs which could hold the pattern without taking too much away from the letter form as it was important to me that my design was still legible. I decided to use the corresponding sound with the letter (i.e. the A has my pronunciation of the letter running through it)making it different from anything I have seen before. Please comment and share your opinions. Thank You

25 downloads25%20downloads2510 comments10%20comments1037 glyphs37%20glyphs37A favorite of 6 usersA%20favorite%20of%206%20users6This font was created around the theme of repetition, it was inspired by Art Deco design and how repetition and  pattern aren't just pointless ornaments but fundamental to the structure of the font. I have been able to reach this stage after 5 weeks of continuous development, sketching and experimentation which I focused around trying to create a bridge between 2D and 3D fonts. Built up of a single repeated component this font is not suitable or made for large amounts of text, but instead has been created to highlight the strength and complexity of each individual letter.
