Your fonts look more and more professional. You should take a try on the pro world, in my opinion.

yes. its very safe :P

What a stunningly beautiful font! Every angle of each glyph is simply perfect.

I had been planning to make a very bold font with ultra-thin slits. Now I don't have to waste my time attempting to create it, because yours is so much sleeker and more appealing than mine could ever have been. Congratulations! 10/10.
Comment by fontcollector 18th May 2011
Thank you very much for your comments and generous votes. It is an extra bold font with real curves on a small grid. You have to zoom in to explore it.

@neurone error: Professional career is not on my list at present. I create fonts because it's fun.

@Adien Gunarta: "Is it safe?" - it's a famous quote from the movie Marathon Man (1976) starring Dustin Hoffman, Laurence Olivier, Roy Scheider, etc. I needed something short and provocative.

@fontcollector: Your excuse is unacceptable. I started working on Hurin after I saw a demo pic of Nagasaki, a similar font designed by Tom Muller. (Here is a link to Flickr: ) It's a cool font with perfect proportions. I thought, I could do it in Fontstruct, but there was no point to reproduce it. Thus, I started to experiment with angles and corners to build something new.

You should double your effort and continue to work on your idea. You may learn something invaluable in the process.

Wow! Excellent work. This is an exemplar with FontStruct.

I'll give it a generous vote as well: 10/10, and keep the change. Because I voted it an eleven.

Funny, we have programmed "Marathon Man" movie at my cinema some months ago. This excellent film surely has not cured my phobia for the dentists !
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 18th May 2011
Awesome! Reminds me a bit of but Hurin has its own character. Had I not known it was a fontstruction, I wouldn't have been able to guess!
Comment by LexKominek 18th May 2011
@LexKominek: I think, my early work Denethor Sans is more similar to Dez Squeeze.
Comment by Frodo7 18th May 2011
Actually, I wasn't making excuses. It was just a little joke, although I guess it wasn't particularly funny.

Anyway, maybe I'll try to work on the idea that was on my mind when you published Hurin.

@laynecom, BanjoZebra, and thalamic: thank you very much for your comments and votes.

I updated and extended the character set and modified the demo pic (grunge added).

PS: Trolls keep pestering my FS presence.

Thanks a lot, dear amigo. I've never said my words in vain, you know, we are here. Please accept my greatest congratulations! Keep on rockin' in the free world! (the great Neil Young dixit, and me too).

My vanishing favorites

The following fontstructions specially selected as MY FAVEs disappeared from public display:

soma, whipped cream, alphabots, woodcut, tessellation 2 by funk_king; fs Helix, fs Etched [Bare] by thalamic; fs Bevel by minimum

Could anyone provide information on their whereabouts? Silent font rapture?
Comment by Frodo7 8th June 2011

Very beautiful font in Latin. In the Cyrillic alphabet, I would pay attention to a kratka over й, maybe I would add bevels to ф ш щ и й, I would make ш щ ц with a flat bottom. Descender of д and л should rather have bevels, б be round at the bottom.

Comment by Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff) 21st May 2020

@Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff): Thank you for your comment. You are right about a lot of things. This font was made 9 years ago - feels like a lifetime. Tools and bricks were limited compared to what is available today. I have also learned a lot about typeface design since then. Hurin is on my list of fonts I plan to rework, refine and extend when I have some time. I'd like to redesign the diacritical marks, the punctuation (e.g. the parentheses with thin lines and curves), some of the special characters with thin lines too, and the Cyrillic set, of course. Your suggestions will be invaluable.
