It's been a while since I released a movie themed font. This was a good excuse to experiment with 1:16 angles to recreate the original Predator movie logo. Predatoric was tricky to create as well as manage in regards to the fades on curves and angles. Small Caps were created afterward. Predatoric 2 came about by accident and looked even more interesting. Digits from the Predator self=destruct sequence are housed in the [, ], {, and }.

The Predator font already exists in the free fonts world. It's called "Invisible Killer" by WhoAmI Design, you can find it at Dafont.com. The suspense is intact : will you be top picked for this new copy ?

Nice work gene, but you have to tell how you got 1:16 angles!

@neurone_error: Since the movie is over 20 years old, I thought someone would have already created a version of it. I didn't know about it though, so thanks for the info. Comparing both now, I do have small caps added as well as the self destruct digits. Predatoric 2 also offers a different variation of the font. Anyway, this fontstruction is basically an exercise in functionally utilizing the steepest FS2.0 angle available.

@aphoria: Thanks. The 1:16 angle can be achieved as follows:
1. Create a tall 1:8 angle set in 1:1 mode.
2. Separate each brick vertically by one grid space.
3. Switch the filter setting to 1:2. The stretching allows the additional angle to be created which is only available vertically.

Conversely, a 2:1 filter setting allows horizontal 16:1 angles to be created.

Ahhh, filters. I hadn't considered that...duh!

I thought maybe you had your hands on FontStruct 2.5. ;^)

@neurone_error & @geneus1:

The original website for WhoAmI Design was dormant for the last few years, but as of May 2010, it is back now as TracerTong Fonts:

http://tracertong.co.uk/ttf/

It has most of the old fonts from the original site, along with a few new ones. A visit is highly recommended.

Nice one Gene - love the imaginative use of filters - all I need to do now is get my head around it :)

A great take on an iconic design. 10/10

It looks like some creature clawed at the bottom of your font.
