 Wackathetica is derived from Struck, both fonts were created by me (Doug Peters).

Wackathetica gets its name from the idea that I borrowed styling cues from serif, slab serif, and sans serif, even goth cuts and rounded font typographic designs to make a pretty wacky typeface.  A couple of alternates are included in the unicode Halfwidths and Fullwidths register.

Vertical lines are thick, horizontal lines are skinny.

Originally, I went in to kern Struck, but before I did, as this is one of my eldest fonts, I decided trying to improve it.  But then, I started noticing a nice little design I was trying to do, but wouldn't work with the overall design, so I cloned it and created a new font.  But then, I started changing how I was wanting that one to look, too.  So I created yet another clone... this one, Wackathetica.

Now, maybe I'm crazy, but I cannot find the second clone.  ??? 

I had this written in the description...

"Wackathetica is derived from , which is derived from Struck, all fonts created by Doug Peters."

Only, I can't find it.  So, maybe I am crazy.  That is worrisome.  Argh.  Just as I hit retirement I start losing my mind.

Note to self: Fix 9, superscript 2, superscript 3 and W.  ...DONE

Comment by SymbioticDesign 15th april 2019

Just a note:  Because there is such a large line space, or space between lines, I don't think this version of the font should be available for public consumption.  It needs some tweaking in a font editor where I can control the line height and tracking.  But before I get there, I want to finish the Latin Supplemental characters, plus I will kern it here, both things to accomplish here Fontstruct, first (and yet to do).

Comment by SymbioticDesign 15th april 2019

OK, I see I have lots yet to do:
Add the appropriate accents to the stray U's and Y's.  DONE
Clean-up my logo TMs so that they look like the TMs in the font.  DONE
Clean-up the last TM so that it is appropriate for this font.  DONE
Restyle the ^ or reposition it so that it doesn't make the line height too tall (as it is).  DONE
Kern it. - Capital combos DONE. - Lowercase combos DONE. - Upper to Lower cases DONE.
Finish the Latin Supplemental.  DONE
Add some more punctuation (DONE), currency signs (DONE) and symbols (DONE)... but I can add more later, let me know if you have any glyph requests.

But, it's getting there.  Time to see what everyone else thinks...

the A is really unique I like it alot. but i have to say i can't stand the colors in ur font sample.

first, full black and full blue is really bad i hope ur owns eyes can tell. An easy way to solve this is simply unsaturate the blue. second, full white is a terrible color (imo), You can just make it a bit darker.

sorry giving more oppinions on colors than typography ;P

LOL.  No prob, @JingYo.  I'll be in less of a rush with the next sample.  That was just a sneak peak, anyway.  I've already changed it a lot, but I want to kern it before I'm done.  I'll try to pick a more pleasant palette next time.

Comment by SymbioticDesign 15th april 2019

I would think so.  But I think JingYo has a point. 

I was tired actually more interested in getting a simple character sample made, I wasn't really thinking about colors and most wound-up being inspired by my school colors (from a couple colleges). 

Oh well, that has been a criticism of my font sample images before, though I have a certain fascination with optical illustions and proving legibility of the font with a busy or psychedlic design scenario.

I'll put more thought into it next time.
