A work in progress. Quite simply a pixel modern roman typeface. The yogh (ȝ) I have designed as a mix between x and g. I thought of it as a latin letter gamma (ɣ) to distinguish it from the greek letter gamma (γ), but maybe it would do better as an insular g (ᵹ). What do you think?
I have gone with a classic seriffed look for the greek letters. I have looked a lot at Times New Roman to see the stress of the different characters. Do my solutions work?
Oh, and about the name: "Sprogreolen" is Danish for 'The Language Shelves', the pun being that "Bogreolen" would be 'The Bookcase' or 'The Book Shelves'.

Still a work in progress, but obviously it has to be released today.
There were lots of failures in attempting this one. This version was the best rendition thus far.
The preview looks best set below 75%.

I got the idea from the circle blocks. The smaller the circle, the more the font has a look that it's vanishing at the top.

Beauty from imperfection...
Using the "nudge" tool, I tried to make a dot matrix font where it looks like the print-head was damaged and the pins were consistently mis-aligned. Using a spreadsheet to help randomize the dot positions from center ( U/D/L/R ), the resulting effect looks merely "OK" on the screen; it's just not as subtle as I had hoped...
But you know what? I printed a couple of pages of text using this TTF font at 12-pt, and it seems to have a more 'natural' and 'authentic' look than dots that are perfectly aligned! So, I consider this one a success, and I hope you do, too. ;^)

Hard kerning in this one, you see! But it's my continuous battle with fonts like this (two bricks x-height, filters 2:2). A lot of alternates in the lower case to improve the kern. Fontstructing.

Really excited to be able to share this fontstruction, as it was developed as the display font for a group exhibition in Dublin's Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. A kerned version (slightly tweaked using Glyphs) can be downloaded for free through the gallery website.

Filters: 1.5 2 1.25 1
Close enough to real squares and circles (!), but it appears that would be 1.5 2 1.3 1
October 24: adjusted letters and letter spacing (to be consistent with the interior of the letters... I think)

Clone of fs pixalic. Uppercase looked a little light and I fixed some letters I didn't really like.This is a clone of fs pixalic
