This font was inspired by the works of Christophe Szpajdel (Lord of the Logos, 2010, Die Gestalten Verlag), as well as by the film trilogy and the following game titles (e.g. Middle-earth: Shadows of Mordor, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, 2014) based on Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings. Given the game theme, and the 48 bricks vertical limit, I thought more or less
around pixel art, or pixel fonts. This is my endeavour to make a spiky blackletter in Szpajdel's black metal style that evokes the terror of Mordor at pixel level.
This font has been extensively tested for best kerning, yet some issues might have remained unresolved.This is a clone

Hi all, I'm back from my FontStruct hiatus, and I found a couple of fonts I never got around to publishing. I hope you like them!

Blackletter with a fat inline.
A mix of traditional blackletter glyph, exploration and grid compromise.
I'll complete the missing numbers and hopefully all diacritics.

Hunstrüct is my first attempt at designing a contemporary blackletter typeface within Fontstruct. The typeface draws inspiration from the long tradition of German Fraktur styled blackletters. The name Hunstrück is taken from a mountain range in Germany called the Hunsrück. Primarily I was aiming to build a face that would work well as a display type for gig posters and larger headlines but as I reworked the typeface I tried to strike a balance between text and display.
Big thanks goes to djnippa for his hard work in spacing this font properly.

Exactly one year ago two of my cousins, Chris and Cleofe, got into a dealer-loaned Lexus for a trip after their main car was being repaired. Cleofe's husband, a CHP officer, was driving and their teen daughter was along for the ride. While on the freeway, the accelerator became stuck and they lost control of the car. As the runaway vehicle sped up to over 100 mph, all four passengers were killed in a fiery crash in the San Diego River. The loss was unquantifiably devastating. This immensely tragic event led my aunt to testify before congress with damning evidence that would initiate the recall of millions of Toyota vehicles.
Requiemme Decorum was created on the way down to southern California for the funeral services. For Chris, Cleofe, Mark, and Mahala, may you all rest in peace and love.This is a clone

This Fonstruction was created in my first year studying graphic design at UWE. The design brief was to create a typeface using the key word; 'ornate'. I have taken heavy influence from gothic fonts and architecture, looking in particular at religion and religious texts.

I welcome all comments and constructive criticism, thank you :)This is a clone

This is based on the Wolfenstein logo. It has lowercase letters only. The uppercase letters are used as ligatures / alts.

This took me many, many hours of trying, learning, erasing and restarting. Especially the design of the caps was hard; sooo many possibilities! However, i'm proud to present you my first real blackletter font :) I would like to add some more glyphs to the "more latin" set, but the size seems to be close to the download limit. It's downloadable yet, but i had to erase some glyphs...
there's an alternate "a" on "@",
and some decorative stuff on "#" and "*".

|||||Português|||||Tipografia que simula escrita gótica, com uma caneta de corte largo. A altura das letras maiúsculas é sete vezes a largura da ponta da caneta. A altura das minúsculas é 5 vezes a largura da ponta da caneta. A inclinação da caneta é de 45 graus em todas as formas, à excepção das linhas verticais com fim ornamental, que têm a espessura da caneta. Esta é uma fonte para grande quantidade de texto, com alguma preocupação pela legibilidade e leiturabilidade, mesmo para quem não está familiarizado com letra gótica. Não é adequada a nomes ou títulos, completamente escritos em caixa alta.
|||||English|||||Script typeface wich simulates gothic script with a fountain pen. The Upper case letters are seven times high the pen nib. The Lower case letters are five times high the pen nib. The tilt of the pen is 45 degrees in all forms, except for vertical lines with decorative porpose, which have the thickness of the pen. This is a typeface for great quantity of text, with some concern for the legibility and readability, even for those unfamiliar with Gothic script. It should not work well with upper case names or titles.

A blackletter/frakture font based on drawings from Albrecht Durer's "De Symmetria". The forms are designed to be compact, filling the space available, and so that they don't require kerning or letter-spacing. The display might mimic the lettering found in the Gutenberg bible, which would have employed a similar grid based type style to create a type similar to what might be found in medieval calligraphy.

My first Font. Please tell me if it's any good since I haven't done any serious Field-testing yet. There might be some problems with certain letters.

This font was based on the word pompous. It was created for a typography brief set in my first year at UWE Bristol. From the word pompous I was inspired to look at black letter fonts and ornate styles of decoration. Any feedback would be appreciated! If you use this font within your work please post a link with your final outcome, as its always nice to see your creation in action!

One of my old designs brought up-to-date with FS 2.0
I have changed the name from 'RM Albion Too' to 'RM New Albion' because, whilst I liked the word play of the former, I thought it was a tad trite (and a bit Anglo-centric).

A sort of blackletter with no historical references.
0 is meant for layering of the drop-caps.
It needs extended latin characters and diacritics, but you can typeset Latin with it! :-)This is a clone
