THIS IS BASED ON MY HANDWRITING. NOT MY REGULAR HANDWRITING — THAT DOESN’T ALLOW FOR LOWER-CASE LETTERS; SO WHENEVER I NEED TO WRITE SOMETHING WITH LOWER-CASE LETTERS (SUCH AS IN EXAMS.), I USE THIS STYLE.

I KNOW THAT IN PLACES IT LOOKS A BIT BROKEN. BUT AT THE SMALL SIZES OF BULK TEXT, IT SHOULDN’T BE TOO NOTICEABLE; IT’S NOT REALLY DESIGNED AS A DISPLAY FONT.

AND I ALSO KNOW THAT SOME SERIFS AND STROKES AREN’T EXACTLY COMMONPLACE (SEE THE UPPER SERIFS ON THE LETTER: “u”). IT’S JUST HOW MY HANDWRITING TURNED OUT.

“WHAKAITI” IS A MĀORI WORD MEANING “TO MAKE SMALL”. IT’S ROUGHLY PRONOUNCED: “ɸɑkɑiti”.

How'd you get the custom sized bricks (2x4 brick on the A)?

Comment by BWM Tue, 31st December

I like the Idea a lot, but this kind of proofs my comment from a while back about the 4x filter settings isnt it? 

But enough of that, this really needs a propper version, lot of potential in your letterforms here!

;-)

Comment by Sed4tives Tue, 31st December

I'd love to get puzzly on this some day in a attempt to recreate it at 2x2 filter setting. ^^

Comment by Sed4tives Tue, 31st December

An interesting and slightly eclectic style. I'm a fan! "k" does stand out somewhat, though.

Comment by zephram Tue, 31st December

Is it just on my cellphone or does the font render fot the gallery preview glitch out for others as well? Seems like FS doesnt like the filter settings a lot ^^

Comment by Sed4tives Tue, 31st December

Yeah, it's quite glitchy upon the initial rendering (and in the preview image which shows on the live feed and user page). I noticed the same issue for Fontstruxius-made projects. It looks fine as soon as I change the zoom level, though.

@BWM

Hacks.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Tue, 31st December

@Sed4tives

Thanks. Yeah, I remember you saying about the filters. I think that I starting constructing this straight after you told me that, to prove you wrong. But it ended up being quite hard to work with (as you can tell by the results). And this actually is at 2×2 settings; The blocks themselves are distorted in size and rotation. But I’d love to see another version of it perhaps created by you when you’re feeling… “puzzly”!

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Tue, 31st December

@zephram

If you think that “k” stands out, take a look at “ж”!

I just write “k”s like that for some reason; I guess that it gives me some individuality.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Tue, 31st December

And yeah, I’ve noticed that the gallery renderings aren’t representative of this and Fontstruxius projects. I can hack into the editor, but I can’t make it display like that in the server-generated static previews.

Also, don’t try downloading this or Fontstruxius projects no matter how big they are; I’ve realised that FontStruct doesn’t interpret my (unauthorised) changes into the TrueType protocol.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Tue, 31st December

Meaning? The glitches present in the render.bin translate to the TrueType as well?

Comment by Sed4tives Tue, 31st December

@Sed4tives

No, they’re different glitches. Generally, where the render shows no block instead of a custom block, the font file contains a full-sized block.

really neat

Comment by JingYo Wed, 1st January

Отличный шрифт, мне он очень понравился. Рукописный даже больше. Ты же писал плоским маркером?

Опять же, ты наверняка про это знаешь, но I need to write that the thickness distribution in the letters M and N is incorrect(correct thin/bold/thin). This can be understood by trying to write these letters with a flat marker(or broad nib) without twisting it when writing.

Comment by Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff) Wed, 1st January

@Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff)

Спасибо большое! Нет, я писал круглыми маркерами — детскими. А да, я знал про это. А в описании гласит: «SOME SERIFS AND STROKES AREN’T EXACTLY COMMONPLACE».

Если я могу спросить, в твоём комментарии зачем слово: «же» находится после слова: «ты»? Если оно подчёркивает предыдущее слово, то разве оно не должно последовать за словом: «плоским»?
