I joined Fontstruct because I wanted some special fonts for greeting cards I was working on. Over the years I have learned a lot from seeing the incredible variety of fonts created by members who are using simple bricks and a lot of patience and imagination. Studying the fonts I see and specially when cloning is allowed, helps me develop further and stimulates my imagination.
I love to design and make fonts for family and friends, for special occasions, and to replace some of those more 'usual' basic computer fonts I used in the past :)
Inspired by the multitude of Ray's designs, and by our shared professional experiences. Hope you'll return soon, P2P:)This is a clone of Raysan
Developped from the basic Raysan design I made to celebrate knowing P2P and appreciating his support when I first started FontStructing, I wanted a joyous more relaxed look to thank him.This is a clone of Raysan

Planned and started a long time ago as a birthday present for my nephew. I finished it in time for his 13th :) and downloaded a copy to a USB stick. I'll also send him a Spreadshirt item using this font. Thanks to FontStruct I can offer such amazing novel gifts :)
This is not just another tile set that simply uses a wider variety of brick in each glyph. I added "twists". I wonder how long before someone notices ;)
I needed a dotty looking font to print on cards to be embroidered by a youngster; the present design is based on it with added embellishments and more gyphs. Maybe someone else might find it useful? The different bricks used could indicate a change of stitch style or a different colour.This is a clone
Inspired by wildlife in the garden. A fun slightly crazy design for spring time. There is a bit of variety in the heads, depending on the species of butterfly that will emerge :)) Toukka is Finnish for 'caterpillar'.
Work finished for the moment ...
Based on Romaeo serif which I have not yet published as I'm still having a little problem due to the size of the fonts (but my patience can overcome it once I have the time to rework and finish them).This is a clone
With this font I think I have made a special one for every first of the month for 1 year. I hope you found one or two of the designs pleasing enough to put into your collection or maybe even use.
I made this in the spirit of the "Ondea" font designs which were inspired by Yautja's ethereal compositions :) (one piece is my phone's ringtone, thankyou Yautja!)
I recently saw a type face with bits missing and thought "Looks interesting, can I do something with this idea?". I used one of my older sans designs but soon discovered that I needed serifs to get logic to the gaps ;) So I started work on a good serif design to use as the base. Here is my interpretation of what I saw, it looks rather different from the one that inspired me.
Decorative font without curves. Despite some fancy 'serif' kind of additions to most letters it different from the usual small fonts.
Feel free to replace those non-corner triangles with squares ;) to get a different look :D
Part of my "1 of" series of fonts I designed to welcome new months.
The "1st of a month" group was a fun idea but I found it a little complicated to do as I don't usually build several different fonts concurrently (ghosting happens too easily).
This font could be used to make tree decorations, gift tags, glass markers, place cards/napkin cards, etc. Just print on sturdy paper in large size and then cut out. Use pale grey ink if you want to decorate this paper base with collage, embroidery/stitching type work; print in coloured inks for a jazzy look which you enhance with dots of glitter glue or sparkly rhinestones. For a hanging decoration thread a length of yarn through the top 'rectangle' or you remove the rectangle's center to thread ribbon through it.
For some different fun you could glue your print on card stock and create greeting cards, jewellry pendants, shoe decorations. With a brooch back it could make a decoration of clothing, gift bags, hats.
Have fun, joyous December dear fellow FontStructivists :) :) :)
Slab Serif 300 as a stencil font. Bridges on the UC are vertical, on the LC horizontal. Bridges on numbers, symbols, punctuation are mostly vertical.This is a clone of Slab Serif 300
The thickness of the horizontals now matches the verticals and diagonals (doesn't apply to small punctuation and some symbols). Note the new "q" which suits the weight of the lines.This is a clone
The outline version of "Slab Serif 100". Sizes are as the parent font so this version can be used with the parent and other versions. Work in progress.This is a clone
Inspired by trying to thread heddles on a 4-shafter .........
The design uses a lot of nudging, a little stacking and composites, using some of the exciting extended capabilities of the FontStructor.
The font's name is Maori and means "weaving".
This font is as finished as I need to have it at the moment. I'll add a few more glyphs later.
Inspired by a Blackletter font in which I saw Art Deco qualities. The name comes from Norse/Viking mythology. It's great for headlines/titles and works nicely as majuscles for slab sans serif fonts.
No DL for this particular design but the initial font design will be tidied (has Latin & MoreLatin only) and made available before the end of next week.
Another font in the "First of the Month" series.
Based on a shape experiment with octagons this design has grown into a 'real' font fit for headlines and messages to suit October and Hallows Eve/Halloween/Samhein. I'll add MoreLatin diacritics if you need them. It would look good on cards for Halloween.
It had to be done: our dog carrying the basic alphabet on the UC; the LC has the same letters without dog.
There are full stop, colon and numbers 0 - 9 with dog (if you need longer numbers look for dog-less 0 to 9 on punctuation after "*" to add after a dog number). You get a blank dog on "?" and a dog with collar on "!". The space bar is set for a good LC word space; use 2xspace when writing all UCs.
Ideal for invitations to parties ;) specially for dogs, for dog arrival announcements, dog-sitter thank-you cards, gift tags, house names and signs, dogs' friends' birthday cards or information ;)
These dogs look nice when coloured in.
No DL yet as there are some glyphs still to be done.
I think this kind of font could make a great comp ;)
With summer and holidays still on the mind I remember museum visits and art exhibitions I enjoyed ... this Art Deco style font seems a fitting offering :)
Dark Tokken X was inspired by Maren Winter's novel about a Tokkenspieler. I know that this design is far from looking like the styles of writing popular at the time when the story was supposed to have happened. I adjusted some lines of this version compared to a previous one, added real LC, numbers and More Latin diacritics :) as I want to print bottle labels with this.
I made the old style sz for the ß, and placed the alternate modern ß on the °.This is a clone
