11 downloads11%20downloads1166 glyphs66%20glyphs66This font was created around the theme of DANGEROUS. 

Norse Runes and their links to  ‘dangerous’ Vikings, Celts and Historic Warriors led me to create this font based on the angles and ‘sharpness’ of weapons and original runic alphabet shapes.

The font is very readable but would probably only be used for a bold title for a book (including sub-titles) based on history or a poster for bands, events or even propaganda posters.

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 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.


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 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!


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:

...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.


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.


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...

...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.

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). 


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.

This runic typeface is based upon the ancient Germanic symbols later adapted by the Goths, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, The Third Reich, and within Fantasy genera, depicted as Dwarven Runes.

ELDER VIKING is almost an exact interpretation of Elder Futhark plus a few extra characters corresponding as a best fit to the basic 26 upper-case Latin characters.

MIDDLE VIKING is the second generation evolution Rune based upon Elder Futhark. Designed as a semi-cryptic, visually interesting type but intended to be almost-readable as a Latin equivalent (unlike ELDER VIKING), MIDDLE VIKING contains numeric runes and basic punctuation.

YOUNGER VIKING is the third generation rune type which is a fully modern interpretation of Elder Futhark. YOUNGER VIKING, a.k.a. "SPACE VIKING" contains all upper and lower-case fonts as well as numbers and various punctuation.VIKING%20is%20a%20false-historical%20font%20evolving%20from%20Elder%20Futhark%20Runes.%20This%20runic%20typeface%20is%20based%20upon%20the%20ancient%20Germanic%20symbols%20later%20adapted%20by%20the%20Goths%2C%20Anglo-Saxons%2C%20Vikings%2C%20The%20Third%20Reich%2C%20and%20within%20Fantasy%20genera%2C%20depicted%20as%20Dwarven%20Runes.%0D%0A%0D%0AELDER%20VIKING%20is%20almost%20an%20exact%20interpretation%20of%20Elder%20Futhark%20plus%20a%20few%20extra%20characters%20corresponding%20as%20a%20best%20fit%20to%20the%20basic%2026%20upper-case%20Latin%20characters.%0D%0A%0D%0AMIDDLE%20VIKING%20is%20the%20second%20generation%20evolution%20Rune%20based%20upon%20Elder%20Futhark.%20Designed%20as%20a%20semi-cryptic%2C%20visually%20interesting%20type%20but%20intended%20to%20be%20almost-readable%20as%20a%20Latin%20equivalent%20%28unlike%20ELDER%20VIKING%29%2C%20MIDDLE%20VIKING%20contains%20numeric%20runes%20and%20basic%20punctuation.%0D%0A%0D%0AYOUNGER%20VIKING%20is%20the%20third%20generation%20rune%20type%20which%20is%20a%20fully%20modern%20interpretation%20of%20Elder%20Futhark.%20YOUNGER%20VIKING%2C%20a.k.a.%20%22SPACE%20VIKING%22%20contains%20all%20upper%20and%20lower-case%20fonts%20as%20well%20as%20numbers%20and%20various%20punctuation.
