Hi there! I'm Micheal Xing, a Design Communication Diploma Graduate from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore.
I've been in and out of FontStruct since 2009, and really enjoy meddling with modular types via this site. If you want to see some of my other design projects, head over to my Behance site at http://be.net/michealxing.
Thanks and have a great day! :D
mx Eli is inspired by types used in artisanal goods packages and other sleek, modern brands. It's a serif font without the varying widths of roman types with several fun alternate capitals to choose from.
See the full typeface specimen here.
Based on the Lamina typeface by Em42. Made a rough 'A' glyph first as a test for the Reverse Competition but I had no time to get back to it before the deadline. I finished it anyway to see how the final outcome would be.
A portmanteau of the term 'Pleat' and 'Uno', mx Pleato was inspired by the wavy pleats of the skirt and the tails of the 'Reverse' symbol arrows found in Uno cards. I was first interpreting the "Reverse" aspect of the glyph designs through a simple sketch of a pleated skirt/ribbon by using the opposites of the arches (AKA valleys) and then furthering the project using quarter arches of a ribbon (like the arrow tails in Uno), opposite-facing rods and other additional elements.
This typeface was concevied two years ago and later shelved. Thought that it was still worth finishing so here it is. It's another take on the square dot matrix style that I did with the MinSha typeface back in 2010.
Inspired by Punk-esque, spray-painted, hip hop genre types, MX Wasgard is a take on that, using two varying sets of bubbly typefaces that can be merged together to create an overall dynamic type arrangement. Suitable to use in display sizes and subcultural materials.
Would also like to thank Meek for giving us the new thinner macaroni bricks so as to make this typeface possible! :D
Inspired by Radim Peško's 'Agipo' typeface. mx Kurino is a condensed sans serif typeface with a bold weight. Good to use as a header font, providing impact with simplicity.This is a clone
As opposed to he original typeface, this 'Slim' version has more squarish curves and a thinner weight that is even among all strokes, while preserving its identity using angled terminals. This makes for a more Sci-Fi looking outcome, rather than festive. It has a look similar to the unicaps ESA_02 typeface by Eggers + Diaper.This is a clone of mx Mugh
I started this typeface out with the letter 'a', and from there slowly build up the other glyphs and came to realise it looks like a festive type. It's most likely due to the terminals being very angular and sharp, and that thought strengthens ever more so after I tried using it in Adobe Illustrator.
Is it a blackletter? Is it a sans serif? Or perhaps a script? Why not mix all of them together?! Like love, there would be a 'mixed feeling' of hate, happiness and romance. This typeface reflects the many aspects of what love would incorporate: The harsh angles of the blackletter, the simple satisfation of a sans serif, and the curvaceous links of a script.This is a clone
