I use the internet for work, information, discovery, research for hobbies and creative free time activities. I have a lot of things to do and some time consuming hobbies but when I've no other activities, ideas, jobs to do I develop ideas for a font and try to build it. I can't make fonts regularly but intend to contribute at least 8 designs in a year.
I have decided to give my fonts names that start with Lord or Lady, two versions of a font who share a name in masculine and feminine form. Feminine version will be smoother and more elaborated, masculine version will be more rugged less complex.
I saw a lot of cloning done in Fontstruct but fonts were mostly unchanged and there were no comments with them to explain. This doesn't appreciate work of our creators. I won't make my fonts cloneable unless I'm asked and can see that member's own fonts to judge if they are genuine interested in improving my design.
I've returned too late to make a special font for the Reversecomp. I already had changed some aspects of the "Lord Calendulos" version of Calendula set in the clone taken and finished this Lady version today. As my competition entry I flipped the Lady Calendula glyphs horizontally. This means my reversecomp entry font "Calendula Lady" can be used like a plane shadow when placed under Lady Calendula.This is a clone of Lady Calendula
This is based on "Quadretta", or maybe it's the reverse?
Quadretta was inspired by the Fontstruct user symbols but I wanted something more elaborate For my user design I used a similar look but added more bricks which made my present S which was extended into this font. If I make the Lord version of this I have to use abstraction, usually I have the Lords designed first and the Ladies receive special adornments.
It's a work in progress, the numbers and little punctuation will come soon.
It started with the A which looked like a car and then the S which looked like a car with a flashing light on the roof. The other letters just came in shivering from the cold weather.This is a clone of Lord Tremolo
Based on the decorative identity squares that FontStruct members get when they join. My design is based on the elaborate squares of Lady Quadretti. I just had to replace the decorative bricks with the plain square which showed how much Quadretta relies on the variety of bricks to be interesting and different.This is a clone of Lady Quadretta
Almost a black font. I will name my fonts Lord 'something' or Lady 'something' to avoid using single names that might already exist.
