sweet little graffiti-comic-punk-style-outline-font that you might not want to use for more than a few words...
more characters coming soon!
what a pleasure btw to make a font that's done within about half an hour...:P

Well, apparently everybody here likes building letters... And I'm sure everybody got told at least once to finally shut down that damn computer while fontstructing.
Here's how you can go on tinkering fonts even with the computer unplugged!;)
I had carried this idea around with me a long time ago, doing some sketches, but abandoning it cause I thought all the thin and dotted lines would go beyond fontstruct's possibilities. Until funk_king proved me wrong... Thanks for the re-inspiration!
I think this is pretty self-explaining. Cut along the solid lines, fold along the dotted lines and put some glue on the shaded parts, put it all together, and there you go with your new toys!
Unfortunately it was impossible to fill all the inner sides of all the counters, but I tried to leave them open where you'd see it least. There might also be some bugs, I haven't tried them out yet. Pure brainwork so far... (My brain's still in the freezer to cool down a bit) In case someone ever actually uses them and finds something wrong, please let me know!
Hope you like it!:)
Check out the fill font if you wanna print your own custom-made design on the letters!

This feels very bad; it's the first time I'm betraying my oath never to use the grid to feign bezier curves, and one of the few times I betray my principle only to publish complete character sets. At least there is a chance to make amends on the second treason, but this font still deserves it's name: Tradita. (Italian for betrayed)
Alternative a and z on the lowercase. I'll probably add more characters soon enough, but it's unlikely to get an uppercase set.

Little experiment of mine, trying to design a script font that really connects all the letters. As you might guess from the quality of the uppercase, I started with lowercase and had quite some trouble finishing the uppercase... And I know there are (obviously) always the connection strokes peaking out at the end any word, but funnily this imperfect look has started to grow on me during the fontstructing.
I also know there are still lots and lots of inconsistencies and letters that badly need a rework, but I thought the constructive criticism of my fellow fonstructors might be more helpful and efficient at improving this... So I'm grateful for any suggestions!:)
Oh, and yes: The kerning is very painful at times, but I can't see how I can improve that under the constraints of the script and the character forms. And obviously the script thing doesn't work with uppercase only text.

This technique certainly has the potential for more than this, but right now I don't have the time for experimenting a lot. But how about using it for a handwriting-on-rough-paper font?
And yep, I'll do a more complete character set soon...

I intended to make some sort of an M.C.Escher tribute here. I'm sorry this isn't very complete and far from being perfectly well done, but it somewhat started to make me feel dizzy...;) And even though I'm not very convinced by this, I don't think I'd come up with a way better execution soon.
I hope for Mr Escher that there are better tribute fonts for him out there! He'd definitely deserve it...
It was by the way funk_king's Impossible Alphabet that reminded me of this unfinished thing laying around in my messy unpublished fontstructions box, and made me take it out and finish it. (If you can call 42 characters "finished".)

Thought I might just also join the party of 2.0 curves. This is based on an attempt to come as close as possible to a perfect circle, trying to beat Gene in the competition for the most accurate circle before he pumps out another of his miracles...;) The "o" of this font is in that respect my entry to the competition. Just made it into a whole lowercase set for fun...
I suggest everyone who has his own circle for the competition somewhere in a font, tags it with "circle competition". Absolute accuracy shouldn't be the only criteria; if you manage to get an accurate circle on a small grid size, it should be rewarded as well. Mine has a 20 pixel stroke width and a 116 diameter, so I'm sure smaller solutions are also possible.
Due to its pretty large grid size this is getting dangerously close to the limits of the preview widget, so be patient when previewing it.
