I joined Fontstruct to get special fonts for greeting cards I made for sale. Over the years I have learned a lot from seeing the incredible variety of fonts created by members using simple bricks, artistic experiments and a lot of patience; when cloning is allowed I can see and understand fine details to help me develop further, increase my confidence and stimulate my imagination.
I love to design and make fonts for family, friends, for special occasions, to replace some of those more 'usual' basic fonts on my computer :)
Not a font but a fast way of getting a whole word written with the touch of one single keyboard key.
CHRISTMAS / YULE in several languages, using the Latin alphabet. Ideal for use in play groups etc. Great for printing, cutting out and then decorating the letters ;)
Portugese; Gujarati, Marathi, Indonesian
Just testing an idea. So far it has given me 2 eye aches ;) and has worn down the Fonstruct eraser to a small chunk. I'll add some more glyphs when Meek has put a big jar of new erasers into the Fontstructor :D WIP
Made to print some decorative corners on A4 sheets; this will make a novel Yule gift for someone lucky enough to know me ;)
Of course it could also be used as a code:D
The painting in the sampler is from Wikimedia: the "Villa Petraia". I'll add more diacritics when I know which language(s) my friends want to see supported.This is a clone
Ideal for colouring in so it's a great 'tool' for letter work in playgroup and primary school with the added benefit of introducing the idea of serifs which links into historical lettering systems.
For EU members' languages. I think I got them all, including Welsh (in case my friend Ray wants it) and Maori for my friend and family :)i'veadded my favouritepunctuationsymbol: the Eirôn on the ²This is a clone of MasterClass 1
One of those strange designs that sit in my note pad for ages and suddenly decide to become useful :)
Inspired by a commercial font advertised within the 'gallery' listing: FORE
A set of decorative tiles for use as dividers, to call for attention when placed in texts, to use as web backgrounds, etcetc.
UC is 8x8, LC is 7x7.This is a clone
Here are some of the glyphs I said I would add to Vertigokid's"Koily Kord", the parent font for my extention, mainly because I'd like to use the font on a gift card. Naturally I share my extension as the original designer allowed cloning which enabled me to work with it.
Sharing skill and vision and making fonts grow through additions or even extensions we as individuals find useful for ourselves and therefore for all FS members: that's when cloning becomes an awesome tool.
I only have time and interest to do the 10 numerals and punctuation shown here already, they are what I wanted for a greeting card. If you want brackets, symbols, other punctuation, glyphs for other languages then clone, add and share (don't forget to add your name to the list of FS members who enlarged the font > open "Unicode" then look for 'Dingbats' in the menu)
I found adding glyphs quite difficult: not only the actual shapes of the bricks and composites and how they join but because keeping the visual effects of joining and linking was surprisingly complicated as I wanted everything to match the feel of the parent font as closely as possible.
I hope the original designer signs in soon and lets me know what he thinks of the Latin numerals extension and the additions so that I know I did a reasonable job.
Made for German texts.This means that it will also do English texts ;) In fact it will work for all languages that use the Latin set of letters, numerals, punctuation and symbols in text -- as long as no diacritics and other national specifics are desired.This is a clone
I wanted to try some 'deformation' of the perspective used for italic glyphs. It was fun to try, the font looks amusing and the slants are irreverent enough. I know that a word processor could change Raysan into an italic style but a word processed Raysan would be too predictable and without creative spark.
Despite the purposeful changing of lines specially the curved sections which don't follow any "perspective rule" this font looks italic. It has a pleasant rythm in longer headlines etc, and gives eye catching 'splash' text when used with the parent font.
It took quite a while to finish, I constantly fought the wish to make composites and stacks to get the correct shape and directions into the curves.This is a clone of Raysan
Inspired by dpla's comment about an animation showing the transformation of a standard font into the shattered look of "Bruch 01". Such animation will be easier to comprehend if the non-Bruch design is reasonably close to the Bruch design; however the transformations won't be spectacular ;)
Although rather 'basic' this design would work well for such a presentation. Sadly I don't have an animation program to show this.This is a clone of Bruch 01
This seems to have taken inspiration from my First-TP-font "Sandor Basic Stripes" :) but was in fact inspired by shattered windows of a deserted building.
Reduced height "Gameao". I changed the M and W to avoid splitting bricks as that poses problems in small pixel fonts. 4x7 pixels (merci dpla!)
After Dmitriy added the beautiful Cyrillic set I added More Latin and some of that set's punctuation and symbols. That explains the "C+ML" of the name ;) I thought about adding Latin A but at the moment I can't figure out how to set the accents without breaking the ratio between UC-LC heights even further.This is a clone of ABC C
Reverse in the visual context can mean many things. I decided to create letters and mirrored them, attaching them to a spine.The letters looked like filigree jewellery pendants.
I know that the I , T and W don't follow the design rule; I tried to align them on a spine but the result was unsatisfactory.This is a clone
Listening to cricket matches I saw a lot of trajectories in my mind when commentators discussed the balls' flight paths and where they landed, of some incredible bowling.
What a great inspiration for my first entry for the ReverseComp.
Maximum rectangle size is 16x20. The LC contains the flipped reversed UC.
I see many white-in-black designs coming in, I'm adding to them as we don't see this type very often ;)
I think that I managed to give the "impression" of those occasional graphics displayed in cricket, football, tennis and other ball-based sports (it might be hawk-eye linked) that show where balls have originated from or to predict/illustrate their continuation.
A blank space is on the underscore, a filled space on the space bar.
Numerals and very basic punctuation are done :)
I "aged" my Biscuit de l'Ouest font for a friend who wants it for a website about her old English breed of cattle.This is a clone of Biscuit de L'Ouest
A bit of artistic flying ;) This design would have benefitted from the original 8x8 composite possibility but 5x5 or 4x6 would have worked, too. Done as far as I need it for normal communication in modern English.
