Hard to believe that 10 years have passed since joining Fontstruct. The years have truly flown by and typography went from an unknown, to a delightful hobby. Many many thanks to those who helped me learn and grow on this platform, it's been such a fun adventure with such a positive impact. To celebrate, may I present "magenta" an art deco font for any typing needs. Please enjoy
This also marks a little turning point. The name "time.peace" was chosen at random and was honestly something I’d never been thrilled with. After much thinking, a new moniker is being adopted: "tortoiseshell."
"tortoiseshell" pulls from the tortoiseshell butterfly. Butterflys are seen as both symbols of time and of peace, making it a simple homage to the old title. There is another connection to tortoiseshell glasses, a style popularized in the 1920's, an era that has been incredibly riveting with its Art Deco movement. Lastly, there is a genus of the tortoiseshell butterfly native to my home.
"tortoiseshell typography" looks build upon old ideas while also growing and evolving into the future.
Cheers to the next decade and the new chapter~
Venturing a little into Art Nouveau. A bit of unfamiliar territory, but it sure is an elegant style. This font builds on the ideas of "peach" and "just peachy," making this amalgamation, a potion of sorts. Please enjoy!
A twenties era font with the uppercase measuring twenty glyphs tall, the lowercase measuring five glyphs tall by four glyphs wide, to multiply out to twenty, and incorporating exactly twenty different glyphs to boot.
It was really quite fun seeing all of the ways to sneak the number twenty into this font for the competition. Please enjoy!
I created a font similar to this years ago, a design adjacent to some exhibits found online, but it suffered from inconsistencies and was lost for one reason or another. It was one of my favorite designs and I'm so happy to have it back, now with a more proper looking lowercase! Please enjoy
I recently found an old book of typefaces and one of the samples within sparked the creation of this, a classic/angled art deco font, inspired by the golden age of ocean liners. Please enjoy
A font in this similar circus style was created back in 2014. Many years ago I went through to clear out some of my less desirable fonts, and it was lost during that time. Thanks to the font databank of Luc Devroye I was able to rebuild the font using the prior sample as inspiration while changing and revitalizing some of the glyphs. It was quite fun to rebuild this font, bringing it back from the grave. Please enjoy
Twisted yarn is an amalgamation of two older, long lost fonts: bubble gum, and paper balloon, combined with some design elements to create the next evolution in my design of fancy fonts. Please enjoy
