Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “7x12PixelMono” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 21st September 2010
How many years did it take you to make this?! I'm making a pixel font myself, but it isn't nearly as simple and vast as yours.
Comment by Logan Thomason (xenophilius) 24th October 2010
Boy, I just realised how I would classify this font: Aesthetically pleasing. Each letter is handsomely constructed, especially the 4, which I thought was just a major win.
Comment by Logan Thomason (xenophilius) 17th November 2010
Oh, and by the way, who here had the hubris to rate this FontStruction a 1?! D4mn you! D4mn you to h3||
Comment by Logan Thomason (xenophilius) 17th November 2010
@xenophilus: not many. I see it was created 17th October 2009, and the last edit was 20th May 2010. So that makes 7 months. The beauty of pixel fonts is that you can make a lot of characters very quickly.

I'm going to revisit it now, and maybe make a bold and/or an italic version(s).
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 5th December 2010
Not the most extensive anymore, but it's still very impressive.

Here's a preview of the bold/italic member of the family:

Now it's time to do all of those unicode glyphs in FS Beta. That should take a while!
Comment by Qimplef 31st August 2011
@Quimplef: Excactly! I've already done IPA, and am playing around with Ethiopic and Cherookee. But yes, it's a never-ending story.
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 14th September 2011
Amazing font there. How you even managed to get the characters so pretty i don't even know. so very pretty... infinity^infinity/10
Comment by Umbreon126 9th March 2012
This font is taking inhuman proportions! The pharaohs had thousands of slaves to achieve their pyramids; maybe their blood floods in your veins, to build this all alone.
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 15th March 2012
Wow, really impressed with the completeness of this font and quite elegant for a pixel font too! 10/10
Comment by four 17th March 2012
@ne: Thank you for the encouraging words! Sometimes, I myself can barely bellieve that I have done this. Mostly, I work on it as a result of procrastination, so it is a bit scary to think of all the things I don't get done.

@four: Thanks! That's excactly my aim.

I recently passed the 4000 character mark! New additions include: Polytonic Greek, Mathematical operators, Phonetic extentions, Myanmar, Letterlike symbols and Miscellaneous symbols (Dingbats).
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 18th March 2012
Please Give us your benediction Oh SemiGod Cmunk, you who can draw 1000 new superb glyphs on one day, when we have difficulties to make 10 ! Excellent job Christian and still beautiful at pixel size from the very first to the last one! If you decide to push this far the rest of the family(italic, etc.), and if it is still by procrastination, i'm afraid we'll have to wait a long time to see your still unpublished surely beautiful concepts you procrastinate with !
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 19th March 2012
Congratulations on passing the 5000 mark!
Comment by four 19th March 2012
Over 5500 characters, absolutely mind-boggling.

Comment by p2pnut 20th March 2012
Are you secretly trying to beat me ;) LOL at least you have real characters instead of fillers everywhere :P
Comment by Umbreon126 21st March 2012
Thank you all! I am glad this font has regained your interest.

@cablecomputer: About the load-time it's around 3 minutes. The weird thing is that it takes significantly longer if I minimize the window while it loads...

Now, I've been putting this off for a bit, because it will require reworking of a lot of characters, but here goes: I don't like the shape of some of the most basic characters, but if i redesign them, I'd have to change them in all of the diacritical forms. I'll upload a picture with some of my thoughts.

Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 21st March 2012
I have now changed the g, as I felt the font deserved a double storey g. The script g is still available at its respective code point in the IPA-block. I haven't changed all the other gs yet.

I also changed the Æ, because that was relatively easy, with there only being around 5 glyphs containing it.
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 21st March 2012
@CMunk "takes significantly longer if I minimize the window while it loads... " I seem to have the same thing, in Firefox in a different tab or with Firefox minimized it seems to almost stop loading at 1400 for my font. And I mean stop. So maybe it's a FS glitch or something...

P.S.: I shortened the name, but the font is still growing, slowly :D

I admit defeat... for now. Let me just make some more Ethiopic characters now :)
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 29th April 2013
Now with the completion of Ethiopic and Ethiopic supplement (also known as Ge'ez) I have taken over the flying spaghetti monster. Here's the beginning of the ethiopic bible (Genisis 1):
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 30th April 2013
While you were fighting the flying spaghetti monster, Umbreon snuck past you. You still have to take first from him. :)

By the way, in the selection from Genesis, are the colons (at least they look like colons) word separators, and the double colons sentence separators? That's what it looks like from the placement of the verses.
Comment by ETHproductions 30th April 2013
And then beat "Password". |D
I applaud you for your efforts to include Ethiopic, the letter heights and bases confuse me :)
Now to add Ethiopic Extended and Extended-A? (why so many, Unicode?!)
Comment by Umbreon126 30th April 2013
@ETHprod.: Yep, I see that serveral fonts have taken the lead from me.
And yes, the Ethiopic wordspace (U+1361) looks like a colon and the full stop (U+1362) is a double colon or four dots in a square. There is some quite artistic punctuation in Ge'ez it seems, for example the paragraph seperator (U+1368) is seven dots arranged in a hexagon.

@Umbreon126: I'll try :P
Yeah, I pretty much made up my own standard for the Ethiopic script as I went along. I figured I can always blame the small scale ;)
Of course, now that I'm getting into Ethiopic I might as well make all of the unicode sets.
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 30th April 2013
Mikropix is catching up to you! Soon you'll have to fight the Mighty Mikropix Monster!
Comment by Noah (winty5) 1st May 2013
Ethiopic Extended looks a bit too detailed for this resolution, but I added Ethiopic Extended-A, as well as Glagolitic, Phags-Pa, Kayah Li, Full-width and half-width characters (except Korean).
Now only Password is ahead of me, and will probably be for a while ;) Still: I am now the fontstruction with the most *non-identical* characters.

@winty5: Not if I can outrun it ;D
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 1st May 2013
Guys you are mad ! If i tried such an expansion with any of my complex styles, it would take me at least 20 years ! Complete my usual 100 glyphs or so is already such a hard and painful task !
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 1st May 2013
@CMunk What's the thing after the �?
Comment by Umbreon126 2nd May 2013
@Umb126: Once upon a time FontStruct had support for some additional unicode characters, such as phoenecian (U+10900-U+1091F). I think it's a leftover from then, but I'm not sure excactly what it is.
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 3rd May 2013
Ah, okay. Actually I was the one that noticed the upper ranges were all buggy and reported it :P
Comment by Umbreon126 3rd May 2013
Ah, well, you can't have everything. I don't think FontStruct really is built for making hyper-extended fonts anyhow, but, whatever, FIND FONTSTRUCT LIMITS!

Added a few characters here and there. For example Greek Capital Letter Yot, and I've finished the Cyrillic Extended block with a couple new letters. Also I've begun on the Buhid block.

I never imagine this... So long font...
But you worked into this 5 years.
Comment by ivancr72 22nd October 2015
This is insane! My font is a more quality, but still very basic font and its taken me around 50 hours over the last month to get to 500 glyphs... HOW DO YOU EVEN DO THAT!!! 8000 is amazing. It love to see if Fontstruct could find more languages for you to do and more symbols for you to make! Can't wait!

Just looked at pixel view, and I am amazed at your patience. wow.

Comment by Midnighte 13th October 2016

The Japanese part of this font is pretty bad.

All the letters with ゛are unreadable, especially ばぱ vs ぼぽ. こつみゆらりるろゐゔエキコスツヌヒモヤ look unbalanced. Halfwidth キ's crossbars look detached. Halfwidth ホ looks like 木 which is a completely different letter.

Comment by japanyoshi 21st October 2016

I'm triyng to make an HD version of the font

Comment by brynda1231 21st October 2016

I never thought I would see a font that had this many glyphs in it.

I think you've done just about every single one that FontStruct supports.

Comment by Multinia 6th December 2016

Umbreon has just beat you! Also, there are 3 fonts that have...

14000 glyphs?!?!?!?!


Comment by ImmaPooh 4th September 2017

What are those 3?

Comment by xXx XBox Gamer 4th September 2017

Well planned and constructed, 7x12 allows attractive additions yet maintains clear text. Ignore that weird 'hidden' "14k-glyphs competition". Continue your quality fonts, creativity and excellence;

Comment by nightpegasus 4th September 2017

Hidden glyph fonts are useful for hiding things... N8

Comment by xXx XBox Gamer 4th September 2017

xXx XBox Gamer  B1 Password, B1 Password Squared and B1 Password Stars. Also, these fonts, Doughnut and Password are the only fonts that have more characters than this font.

Comment by ArrowUP 4th September 2017

A true pixel font 7:12Serif shows typographic understanding, skill, patience, solutions.The +8200 glyphs are legible, make it THE top useful worthy font. 1unique brick repeated in +14k spaces won't.

Comment by nightpegasus 4th September 2017

@ xBoxGamer: I didn't say glyphs to hide things. An 'invisible=hidden  competition' = not organised by FontStruct. I note people who think that filling the most glyph spaces with some brick is worthy of pride and better than a well planned painstakingly crafted font (here: of 8200+ glyphs). To me it's an insult when I see indicated that fonts of 14k glyphs should be emulated. One FontStruction of 1-brick in 14k+ glyph spaces might have a practical application but 2 or more of the same are vastly unnecessary. They are entirely unacceptable and useless as a 'standard' to measure quality or useability of other members'  FontStructive typographic output by.

Comment by nightpegasus 5th September 2017

@nightpegasus: Amen.

Comment by Umbreon126 5th September 2017

i tried to comment but it didn't quite get through (at least it doesn't show up on my computer)

Anyways, you've been pushed into 7th place, and need to get to 14765 glyphs ASAP.

If anyone can stop the bold-italic bug, then I will give this fontstruction a 5/5 instantly.

Comment by ImmaPooh 24th November 2017

ImmaPooh, don't you mean 7/12 instead of  5/5 ?? ;) :D

Comment by nightpegasus 24th November 2017

Yo CMunk, I'm making a font based heavily off 7:6 Serif called Pixels. I finished Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement, and I'm getting near completion for Latin Extended-A. Wish me luck...

CMunk, 5th at 8260

Comment by ImmaPooh Mon, 15th January

@ImmaPooh: any regular competition follows some rules and criteria for the sake of the objective comparison, even informally. I mean (and second nightpegasus), you may not compare the designs that are based on a single glyph (3/5 from your list, yours included), and the ones that fontstruct all of them!  Claiming that e.g. 8260 glyphs would represent the same effort as 1 glyph (multiplied the times you want, 14765 in your case), is quite an unserious statement, to say the least, if not it shows a certain jealousy. The clear fact is that CMunk -painstalkingly- fontstructed 8260 times more in his "7:12 Serif" than you did in your tripled "B1 Password" (I don't say your -incomparably shorter- work is useless, though). Now about the strict record of the maximum number of characters, IMHO, FontStruct might not the right tool to do so (i.e. you may want to change of playground and try the professional solutions that our sponsors showcase).


@CMunk: I am glad you kept the pixel style in this font, unlike Greenstar967's "GS Unicode" lately (which was strictly 5-px of width). So, I assume you get the undisputed and related FontStruct record in low-res pixel(?). [Several very low-res pixel designs are worth the quick look, too.]

Comment by dpla Tue, 16th January

@Brynda1/xBox_/ImmaPooh: « FontStruct is not currently suitable for building fonts with humongous character sets » (FAQ).

And you must have noticed that this kind of huge fontstructions have heavy side-effects (server and page delays/failures…). FontStruct is a lightweight online tool, after all.

Comment by dpla Tue, 16th January

@ImmaPooh/xXx XBox Gamer/ArrowUP/CMunk…: "GS Unicode" seems #1, again (13137 pixel glyphs back). IMO, none of the both fontstructers (Greenstar967 & CMunk) wished this competition, though.

Comment by dpla Tue, 23rd January

@ImmaPooh, xBox, ArrowUP, CMunk, etc. Greenstar967 here, @dpla is correct.  I never intended this to be a competition; I had some free-time and decided to make a multi-lingual font to help people.  At first it had a few hundred characters for basic languages, but soon I had the goal of creating every character available.  It was never a competition, though.  :)

Comment by Greenstar967 Thu, 25th January

On thing: It would be BEAUTIFUL with the W crossing in the center, but it would be my thing so no.

Great font!

Comment by KW555 Wed, 28th February
