I recently saw a type face with bits missing and thought "Looks interesting, can I do something with this idea?". I used one of my older sans designs but soon discovered that I needed serifs to get logic to the gaps ;) So I started work on a good serif design to use as the base. Here is my interpretation of what I saw, it looks rather different from the one that inspired me. Alternative X on the x.
minuto was a tall and slim fella to start with, but somehow if not small perhaps somewhat slight in appearance. when paired the original uc, they somehow manage to elevate stature of both.
it's a dotty deco. the name is a play on zoot suit. i did the uc and was satisfied that it worked as a display font. i had a bunch of lc dot fonts in the trunk and decided to pair up a few to see how they looked together. all share the same uc. that's the zoot suite.
Decorative font without curves. Despite some fancy 'serif' kind of additions to most letters it different from the usual small fonts.
Feel free to replace those non-corner triangles with squares ;) to get a different look :D
Part of my "1 of" series of fonts I designed to welcome new months.
The "1st of a month" group was a fun idea but I found it a little complicated to do as I don't usually build several different fonts concurrently (ghosting happens too easily).
This font could be used to make tree decorations, gift tags, glass markers, place cards/napkin cards, etc. Just print on sturdy paper in large size and then cut out. Use pale grey ink if you want to decorate this paper base with collage, embroidery/stitching type work; print in coloured inks for a jazzy look which you enhance with dots of glitter glue or sparkly rhinestones. For a hanging decoration thread a length of yarn through the top 'rectangle' or you remove the rectangle's center to thread ribbon through it.
For some different fun you could glue your print on card stock and create greeting cards, jewellry pendants, shoe decorations. With a brooch back it could make a decoration of clothing, gift bags, hats.
Have fun, joyous December dear fellow FontStructivists :) :) :)
This font was created around the theme of unstable. It was developed from shapes and structures of scaffolding. I began looking at how each part of scaffolding is pivotal in creating a solid structure and if a part was to be removed it would become unstable and collapse. Each letter form is molded from different parts of a scaffolding frame, such as c-clips etc. The outcome was very engineered/mechanical and is probably best used as a display font for businesses.
Inspired by Punk-esque, spray-painted, hip hop genre types, MX Wasgard is a take on that, using two varying sets of bubbly typefaces that can be merged together to create an overall dynamic type arrangement. Suitable to use in display sizes and subcultural materials.
Would also like to thank Meek for giving us the new thinner macaroni bricks so as to make this typeface possible! :D
Everything can now be outlined with these new awesome bricks, maybe even the classic FS logo needs to be updated now that Fontstructor is more powerful :)
