I'm a young college student who's into computer science. For 2 years when I was younger I spent hours a day creating fonts with FontStruct. My love of FS was driven mostly by my interest in geometry—I loved how simple shapes could come together to create such beautiful letterforms, and I continually strived to recreate and improve the most beautiful of these, whether FontStructed or not.
For a time I left FS to focus on creating video games. Then I got into coding. Now I'm going to college for CS. I have less time now to do the things I loved to do as a kid, but I've always come back to FS as an amazing place to be creative. If I have an idea for a font I'll come here and spend 10 minutes drawing it out. I haven't shared much for several years, but I can promise you I've still been FontStructing in the background.
If you would like to use one of my fonts commercially, contact me and ask about it. Make sure to leave an email address to facilitate contact.
Create your own license plate! Surround your text with () or . Use '_' to get a truly blank space; use '|' for an uppercase middle dot, '\' for lowercase. Some alternates are available in Latin Extended A. Suggestions and critiques welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
(2017: I think this idea was sort of a spin-off of fs quotable. I was also experimenting with clean sans like this one at the time, which contributed greatly toward the design of the inner font. The () characters are new and a few letters (regular g, alternate g and Q) have been updated, but other than that everything's pretty much the same as 3 years ago.)
Here's what happens after I temporarily lose the ability to Fontstruct... ;) This started as an experiment to get around overshoots, but took of in a slightly different direction, with a touch of Uptake. Suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
(2017: Isn't it wonderful when you don't touch a fontstruction for 3 years and still don't see anything to improve? I don't remember why I lost the ability to use FontStruct—probably because of either a power outage or being in a moving vehicle—but I would guess I sketched this out in my graph notebook before getting back on the site.)
The long-awaited uneaten variant of fs cookie, fresh out of the oven. Many characters could likely be improved, especially with modern FS features such as nudging, but I'd rather not change anything from the original (for this version, anyway). Feel free to clone and edit as you please.This is a clone of fs cookie clean
Inspired by, well, cookies. The kerning is quite crummy, sorry about that. ;)
I'll do accents later, right now I'm feeling a little full...
Another marker-style experiment, this time with inktraps. The grid size makes for many difficulties, so some characters could be better (S, Z, e, x, etc.). Suggestions are very welcome for these glyphs, or any others. Thanks and enjoy!
5/16/14 S, Z, f, x, 2, $ and accents were tweaked by nudging. V1.1
1/30/15 The old, un-beautiful e and 7 have been fixed. Still looking for a solution for the 2. Also added Œ and œ. V1.2
6/7/16 Adjusted the 2 again; still not perfect, but better than before. Also narrowed the 7. V1.3
An experiment with propellers. It seems to me like something four would make. Suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
02/08/17: Thanks to the new Kerning feature, a separate "r" is no longer required. Also made the rings a little rounder and fixed the rings on U and u.
My final entry in the competition. Inspired by Mazey, zlabyrinths eYe/FS, and wavelength. Each glyph has its own maze, and each maze connects with the next. Tilde ~ and low line _ connect words, grave ` closes beginnings and ends, and the left and right arrows < > are for the start and end. There are also some alternates in Extended Latin A. Suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks!
04/06/14 The whole font has been updated to be one brick taller, and thus properly fit onto a grid. Also, some characters have been redesigned. V2.0
05/13/14 All punctuation has been modified to continue a word maze. V2.1
07/05/14 1000 downloads! Hooray! As a 'thank you', I've completed more of More Latin. V2.2
08/22/14 I've made the accents part of the maze. I've also changed a few characters, and added Œ and œ. V2.3
08/04/15 Added Polish support with Ą, Ć, Ę, Ł, Ń, Ś, Ź, and Ż. Tweaked a few characters as well, and added a crossbar to the ð. V2.4
06/18/16 Added support for multiple languages with more Cyrillic chars and punctuation. Also tweaked a few chars.
