A typeface that evolved from my entry for FontOut 4. Tech, italic, awesome.

First experiment with my beloved katakana, it means that I may have caused some technical mistakes here and there, but overall I'm happy with the result. Katakana matches futuristic style a lot and provides many ways to play with letters.

I'm really proud of this one, it was a pretty huge challenge, because I started building on a very small grid. Making a oblique, techno font (using 4x1 composites), with decent spacing and rich character set could be painful even in high resolution. Although sometimes I, or FontStructor did not keep pace (see the Yen symbol). Gosh, why there are no

bricks!?

There's a tiny "K Graveyard" in Extended Latin A, somewhere around K-like characters, there's also a different version of nine. Please take a look there and tell me if one of these K's is better than K that I decided to use. Any other suggestions are very, very welcome.

So let me give you all a...

Alright, enough controversy. I'm straight, nevermind.

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Synthek LDR” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 3rd August 2012
This is really good!
Comment by Jamie Place (FontBlast) 3rd August 2012
Splendid. Particularly love the F. @ggg111ggg : can't see the point of all these "direct download" invading the livepage.
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 4th August 2012
Spambot I guess.
@Neoqueto, neat font!
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 4th August 2012
Thanks for the top pick and all the positive comments, yay!!! I'll be making a sample pic today.

@AFT: I can see the point. They post links that lead to an infamous URL shortening service which gives them a tiny amount of cash each time when someone visits it. I just HATE Adf.ly, I think it's unfair, so I'm hiding that comment.
The F looks like it was hunchbacked, huh? The F is pretty much a "flagship letter" here. Thx.

@Yautja: Perhaps it is a bot, no one knows. Except admins, so I suggest adding some kind of captcha before commenting. It could contain letters from various fonts from FontStruct!
Thanks.

The font will be available on dafont anyway.

this reminds me so much of Wip3out HD Fury.Nice Job, but i just cant stand that e so i might clone to make something like this:
Comment by rj10328 5th August 2012
At some point I also noticed that it's extremely similar to WipEout HD Fury logo (the "fury" part), maybe it's all because I have the box with the game right on my desk? Anyway, I though to myself: "is it anything bad"? They're making a fan-game based on the series there on WipEout Zone Forum and I'm going to offer them my help with various in-game logotypes and logos. The whole original series is well known for high quality, futuristic design.

Cool suggestions, especially the first one, but I like my current "e". You're welcome to clone this, that's what the button is for :)

For some reason many of your fonts are not loading up properly...?
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 24th September 2012
Yes, it seems that it's only happening to me, I've already informed FontStruct about this issue, but it turns out that I'm also unable to create new fonts or edit existing. This is really bad.
Comment by Neoqueto 24th September 2012
This font's not downloading properly, so I'm making a clone called 'Skyber' which will hopefully work.
Comment by Jamie Place (FontBlast) 28th September 2012
Glad to see your fonts back online
Comment by rj10328 28th September 2012
Just imagine how happy I must be! :D

Thanks to the FontStruct Staff who brought back my fonts - even if many of them are far away from being just proper - they mean a lot to me. FontStruct is my #1 tool - can't do in FontLab things that FontStructor is capable of, so until now, my entire life had been in ruin. Also, the FS Staff crew are the number one too - thank you guys again, I thought I'll never see them again!

New fonts are on the way.

@rj10328: Synthek LDR is also available on DaFont, slightly polished, 'cause there actually are some things FontLab can do that FS can't ^^. Luckily, I downloaded this one before my fonts crashed.
