Periculum. Rooted in the latin word for 'Dangerous.' This was an experiment in using FontStruct without filters. It reminded me of why I use filters 90% of the time. There aren't as many solutions possible. Periculum died after a bad copy and paste malfunction. The resurrection process was like walking on eggshells, but here it is. Lowercase was rushed a bit just to get it out there for Aphoria. The smoothness comes with the combination of preview scaling and anti-aliasing. It has to be scaled at just the right size to look convincing for on-screen purposes. This makes it more ideal for non-print related usage. 060415. Numbers 101815. Symbols added. Preview looks normal on the font's page, but not on the 'Handgloves' listing.


I felt in love right away when I saw your demo.

BRAVO! I love the felling coming out from the font.

Just like Aurora Light (Aphoria) these fonts push again the standard and the limit of what is possible to create with bricks in a grid.

I find the screen output very good, nice smoothness work

a perfect 10

Brilliant. This is so well-crafted the usual modular quirks are almost invisible at pixel resolution.

A note for everyone: The copy-and-paste bug which caused a lot of grief and salvage work on this one has been fixed now (thanks in great part to a detailed bug report from Gene).

I stand in humble awe at these mighty works produced by you and Aphoria. I thought I was on my way to producing a reasonable curve - then I saw the great designs. 10/10+++

@Upixel: Thanks. This one starts to look good at around 25% zoom and under. If you work at around 75 grid blocks for the x height, things start to look good at all zoom levels.

@Lex: =D

@meek: Thanks for the fix! Glad I could help.

@p2pnut: Reminder -You have already produced reasonable curves even without FS2.0. My expectation is high for you, sir.

@jhejka: Thanks. Looks like your tutorial wishes have been answered by aphoria and djnippa.

Great work've been quite prolific lately. :)

Another great work defying the gravity of bricks. Clean, elegant and featherweight. 10/10

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Periculum” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by afrojet 7th june 2010
Very nice! I'm not quite sold on the "k" but the asymmetry of the "a" and "s" play off of each other well.

I am a beginner. I want to know how you did the composite bricks that are very thin and triangular.
Coud you please tell me?
Comment by Agent Demonic Ladybug 31st december 2010
This is an awesome font. It's unbelievable that anybody could make a font like this on FontSruct. 10/10
Oh, and a little PS for you, periculum is the Harry Potter spell for shooting fireworks out of the end of one's wand.
Comment by Logan Thomason (xenophilius) 31st december 2010
Thanks for the comments.

@Ladybug: Anyone starting out with composite brickmaking should begin with djnippa's fontstructed template: All Composites saved in MY BRICKS. If you scroll down to thalamic's diagram, you'll see how the curves were constructed by connecting the angled composites together.

@xeno: Interesting. I did not know that. Maybe more fonts should be named after Harry Potter spells. Wingardium Leviosa!
