nicely presented in a scetchy pencil drawn quickie style :)
it's just lower case yet, but i wanted to share it.
upper case, numerals and symbols to come. really :)
this is especially tasty in small pixel sizes! thanks for attention!

This is done under pressure of time.
There will be some more alternate glyphs, but i got to leave the PC now :(
Hope it's a well competitor though...

This one has been called Nova. That is simply due to the fact that the letters A, N, O, and V were the first that I tried out when starting this typeface.

The Pet Shop Boys had a competition to design the poster for their North American tour to support the Yes album.This was one of the submitted entry, designed by CrowdSpring user k_anderson [not me]. This font is an expansion of his/her idea.This is a clone

Don't get this font angry. You wouldn't like it when its angry.
UC is cracked, LC is solid. Cracked period = ","
Cracked exclamations = "@"
Cracked questionmark = "/"

It's the official release day for the highly anticipated Halo:Reach video game on the XBox360! A great excuse to build a Halo related fontstruction. This one was inspired by two Halo 3 multi-player game maps featuring Spartan related technology: Citadel and Guardian. The patterned techno-motif textures on the architecture in these maps are impressively adorned everywhere. It's hard not to be inspired. The design just came about after messing around with some shapes yesterday. The alternates in the lowercase are actually the first iteration of the design, updates are in the uppercase.
Dedicated to my son who introduced me to the amazing Halo universe and encourages my love-hate relationship with the XBox360. He kills me. It's what he does.

I used a high-resolution grid and lots of FS 2.0 features to create this.
The x-height is 132 grid squares.
I used many of the new angles enabled by FS 2.0 (1:8, 1:6, 1:4, 1:3, 2:3) in an attempt to create very smooth curves.

Clone of Alex Murphy Outline. Inspired by the RoboCop movie logos -- Gradient Version. For Outline Version, see the "Alex Murphy Outline" font; for Solid Version, see the "Alex Murphy Solid" font; for dingbats of OCP logos, see the "Alex Murphy Dings" font. Type "RoboCop" into the View-User Input option to try it out!This is a clone of Alex Murphy Outline

Yesterday afternoon I was sipping Coke on a sunny terrace and thinking about life, and the universe, when an idea came out of the blue about a new stencil font. The idea was so simple, I almost felt ashamed not having it much earlier. Back home I started to work on it, and created the first set of letters. It's a work in progress, fraught with imperfections, including the usual spacing-kerning problems. Remolino is a Spanish word for vortex.This is a clone

No reference used at all. This is me drawing Paul Renner's original Futura from memory, without intending to. Actually, I was going for something more Avante Garde. It all started with the O and developed from there. The hardest letter = S. It was a real pain in the S. It was interesting afterward to compare the letters to Futura after finishing the caps.
Futura - It was like the Helvetica of 1928.
Bezziaire is an early experimental simulation of Bezier curves with FS2.0. Zooming 30% and below renders best results.
Horizontal optical compensation added for the circular glyphs, as well as baseline overshoots.
Oh yeah, this also has preliminary involvement with shasta's circle competition, which is seriously humbled by his Circle Cult.

Wypeout: Gradient Halftone Slab Serif. This took the longest time to get to download.
Less Than = Start Gradient Fade
Greater Than = End Gradient Fade
( = Start Hard Fade
) = End Hard Fade
OK. I'm done.

inspired by oldschool video racing games, but also by lapcounters in formula one.
Every dot of this's got a size of 5x5 bricks!!!
the reason for choosing such a superhigh resolution, was the idea to create an italic angle, which is impossible to do with the FSapplet. This is followed by a LOWER case plus numbers, called "pole position l/c".
however...cheers,community and fontlovers!

Inspired by the funk_king. The stems were created by extending the letter o from mr. funk_king's hemisphere fontstruction. Then things go haywire from there. This was hard, so I took a simpler approach to most of the letterforms for speed's sake.
Thanks to meek and the Fontstruct staff for fixing the download.This is a clone

I was thinking... it could be a nice concept/basic letterform to "pump up" squares!
The upper and lower case sets are different, but not completely. Some of the glyphs only worked in one way...
So here it is. Enjoy and have a beautiful summer!

this was inspired by an optical illusion that says "no sex causes bad eyes" and is very hard to read unless you look at it from distance.
( and ) include signs for start or ending a sentence respectively.
_ will create a appropriate space.

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.

Only lowercase and minimal punctuation for now...not enough time for a complete set.
The lowercase characters can be layered on the uppercase to get different colored outlines and slashes.
The uppercase contains the characters as the outlines and the internal slashes. The lowercase contains the characters as just the outlines.
The punctuation has the outline only version on the it's key and the slashed version on the SHIFT + key. For example, 2 contains the outline version of @ and SHIFT + 2 contains the slashed version of the @.

This is and experimental work to create a strong stencil face with a distinct character. It is a work in progress. Some glyphs may change. If you know prior art(s) very similar to this, please let me know. This is a clone

Triline + Relief = Trelief.
This one was just waiting for a 2.0 update. Originally worked out in March of last year, synchronously with minimum's fs m.ove.r series, and Lex Kominek's Chocobot Stacked series of tri-line fontstructions.
I was unsatisfied with the limited 1.0 curvatures in Trelief, so this was left unreleased. The Trelief series has recently been updated with additional FS2.0 composites for a smoother appearance.
The hard edged version of Trelief came easily afterward.

Digitally hand-scribbled over a hand-drawn typeface. Do not try this with your regular font making software. Blank scribbles on the spacebar.
Lowercase has tighter spacing on characters A, F, L, T, V, W, Y, etc. Terminal zaps on the parentheses. Center-faded scribbles on the brackets. Square-faded scribbles on the braces. This is a clone
