When my mother was young (and specially after my birth) she supplemented the family's income from home by typing for students and businesses. When I was a student I used the same machine for my assignments, lesson plans and thesis. The years were not kind to the machine, the mechanics rusted or broke, the letters worn with frayed edges or disintegrating serifs and fine lines. Ruth's typewriter is a declaration of my appreciation of many years of service the brave little machine gave... As you can see I clearly didn't get the letters repaired ;) The font looks like I rearranged and glued down what was left of the raised surfaces, to continue using the typewriter and give my words a very modern look ;)) A "grunge-writer" ?? Did you notice that no typewriters were ever sold with this kind of modern destructured typefaces?! ;)
Since I started this font many years ago (Ruth was very amused and appreciated this hommage) this work has now become a memorial to her
Decorative font with 3 open lines that give a pseudo-volume. Extended for most European and Scandinavian languages.
A more 'normal' type of university font, familiar, safe, with only few quirks, and as complete as I want it until summer. All letters are on Lower Case. Alternative "s" is on "S". No kerning.This is a clone of Me-Knee-Verse-ET
I Fontstructed my way through a difficult period, the holes have quite a story to tell....... A weird design and not totally necessary, I was told. That'll be OK for me ;) All letters are on Lower Case. There's an alternative 's' on 'S'. No Kerning.
Angled bricks based on 1:4 // 4:1, also some ready-to-use combos, some straight and angled lines to match the 1:4//4:1 sized bricks, a few 'decorative' elements (could be used to fill lines or counters, or to create entire glyphs) and stacks.
Designed to show how the combos are made as this might help newcomers to understand the technique and enable them to make those they want -- if they can't find them in the excellent tools and sets some members have created.
I'm hoping that someone can add more related lines, bricks, angles, combos, stacks and then help us by publishing their extended clone.
Spiky shapes and sticks that point in all directions: just take a twilight walk trough a forest in the fog.
The name is Hungarian as we have Hungarian connection in the family and among friends. It means my forest spirit.
Inspired by a video showing a hairdresser creating a wig for a play........
Many LC glyphs are an alternate to corresponding UC.
I haven't mastered creating good joints between FS bricks and the compos I need to make ""to join"" the two types of brick. Trying to get them to flow into each other produces more or less untidy joining in many places which I find frustrating. Maybe I have to sketch out simpler designs for easy Fontstructing.
Looking at the caron I wonder if the center cross-over brick needs replacing with the one that dips downwards? See the two different bricks in the caron of E and e.This is a clone
This is the bolder version of INGEROL. Made for my uncle ROLF who is celebrating his birthday on the 28th August. I named the font for him and in loving memory of my aunt INGE who I miss very much. Love, Holli and Ninzi.
An alternate slightly taller "a" is on the "µ" and another "x" on the "\". Kerning of really obvious pairs will be done. I'm showing this only because it's a clone that automatically replaced the compos, stacks and standard bricks with the square brick.
A while ago I mentioned encountering the swapped bricks and weird (=51) brick quantity in another cloned version of this design. At first I felt frustrated but then I thought it might work out as a useable font. Without the surprising swap there'd be no Romaeo as a pixel design!! Now I think the glyph shapes look really good with pixellated edges, I'd not have worked a chunky Romaeo into a pixellated chunky Romaeo. Proof that there might be unexplained and unwanted brick problems which don't deserve to be forgotten or deleted as the design can be used to develop a quite acceptable font.This is a clone
An old font revisited and revitalised: now it's weird but fun. No diacritics, almost no punctuation nor symbols. Simply because I think this is not exactly useful ;)This is a clone of Romaeo Stand
Something "fun". Inspired by the many journeys I've made and by train travels. And by my grandchildren's train toys. The angular design echoes small table tops we sometimes use to put the tracks on ...
UC is normal weight and is used in the sampler (font name). LC has some thicker lines for increased legibility although this font is only meant to illustrate concepts (travel, finding new ways, diversification etc) or for logos, shop signs, invitations and similar. Not simple enough for use in anything long or complex that has to be easily read.
Not just a tad thicker lines but additionally I have changed quite a few glyphs' edges and even shapes. But I've maintained the original width of letters (exeptions: l, m, t, r, w, @) and numerals to allow using glyps of this clone as a kind of majuscule with Melusine.This is a clone of Melusine
Upgraded version of Aenvidere (which is the original 'normal weight' version) made for one of my grandsons. The glyphs in this version have lines of different thicknesses which seems to make them and any text more interesting to look at, yet it continues to be elegant.
Numerals are taller than other glyphs, I wonder if a larger letter space might 'integrate' them more when used in a line of text?
Kerning has been done where necessary = on very few pairs: T+some LCs and F+some LCs but not yet on T and F with the corresponding diacritics; also done are TJ and LT. The "f" has been moved in the grid, and "f" and "l" have adjusted letter space. I think that the shape of the glyphs (with and without adjusting their positions/letter space) reduces greatly the need for kerning. Having said all that I'll print some text to check and will adjust kerning where necessary ---at a later date.
This is the most advanced version of Aenvidere (due to kerning), the other published versions will be kerned at a later date. I'm showing them nevertheless so that you can compare versions.This is a clone of Aenvidere
Thicker lines than Aenvidere AGardin. This is quite chunky. Yet it remains rather (good looking and) elegant. Kerning has to be done (check details of this in the font description on Aenvidere AGardin)This is a clone of Aenvidere Stilo
Aenvidere (the normal weight version) still needs fine-tuning and kerning. That will come, eventually :) At the moment I'm quite busy doing too many things concurrently.
Check the font description for AlexGar-Aenvidere for details.
At a later date I'll publish a squared-off version of this. Aenvidere SQ will have the same glyph style but will be wider than the other versions which might make it less useful as a "tool" to attract attention when added as splash insert in text that uses another Aenvidere version.
As I like the glyphs' shapes of midi-trente etc I let myself be inspired by fonts in FS 'op art' set to get an additional style for the "midi" series.This is a clone
I love the look of this style. The name is self explanatory ;) if you know French.........
UC, numerals and some symbols have one line thicker than the others, LC only has the thinner lines. LC can be used on its own if even thickness of lines is desired but it is 3 px shorter than UC which will show clearly when using Basic Latin LC in combination with Hebrew, numerals, some symbols and some punctuation marks. Cyrillic and Hebrew added. Latin1 will come eventually ;)
This font was inspired by crockery decorated with a name which I saw offered in a car boot sale. My font's UC has delicately decorated glyps, visible before food is placed on the plates; LC shows plates after the meal, with food remnants covering/filling parts of glyphs ;)
I've added the glyphs I needed for a gift tag.
Naturally I share this extension because that's in the spirit of cloned work.
I found adding the numbers and punctuation marks 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.
If anybody else wants to add further glyphs: please make sure you publish your extension as cloneable, and add your name and year of addition to those already mentioned (in the unicode setting: look for Dingbats)This is a clone of Koily Kord
For the moment this is the final version of Syngrapheis, reasonably extended. I'll add basic Greek and basic Cyrillic later because I think that the glyph shapes will look good in those writing systems. I've changed the 'g' since the sampler. I wish to offer this version to Google later so if you see any mistakes, strays or breaks etc please let me know.This is a clone
Just showing some new-ish work. Made in memory of my favourite aunt. The UC "O" size is 13x25 px. This font doesn't use filters.This is a clone
More than just a little inspired by cookielord's scanlines, mattyou's tripo and by jirinvk's overlay styles that create a complete visual when used together.
@This is an extended version of Ostara Aria and more elaborate than the "Kerbe" designs. I changed the look of the LC and adjusted some of the UC.
Now the UC lace is better structured and distributed; glyphs A,N,M,U,V,X,Yand their LC, and @,7 and quotation marks have changed shape slightly; missing glyphs on the More Latin set (and the entire ExtendedLatin1 for my family, friends and aquaintances across Europe) needed quite some work due to the ornate sections - I hadn't planned on making this many glyphs, the ornate look was just intended for display UC of English, German and French and not for any other glyphs. Getting diacritics to look good with the decorated UC glyphs was a challenge but I think the ones I've decided to use don't overdo the ornateness nor distract from the glyph's shape.
Due to the new glyphs and diacritics I should have added 1 pixel height to accommodate the decorative lace element more obviously. Instead I changed some shape-rules ever so slightly to have an easier time adding the lace brick.
The LC is now solid black; diacritics have some added lace to integrate better in the design. The LC gives a separate font which might be of interest for headlines, advertising, on signs, cut to sew on fabric etc.
Note that there are still some adjustments/spacing needed; the kerning isn't finished yet either. I'm publishing this to get constructive comments -- and praise ;)
[youmoor]I plead for an algorythm that allows one strange/incomplete comment or (psychosocial) pinaillage for every 1 or 2 sincere (++explained) praises :D Applicable not every minute of the year you understand, only from GMT 0:001h Mondays to GMT 23:599h Sundays [/yoomoor].
The font's name is Malagache.
