Just when you thought I was out of 5x5 pixel font ideas...
UPDATE 07 Oct 17: In February something happened to the font, re-arranging every single brick to somewhere else. I just now got around to fixing it.
Parentheses can be used as caps for the beginnings and ends of sentences.
It breaks up clusters of words wherever punctuation appears. This might help with reading it out loud, by showing how long a sentence is at a glance and making it very obvious where to pause.
The concept for Cürve is simply curves and holes. The typeface can be used in any context. The name Cürve came about from research on letters with diacritical marks. It is very interesting how a simple character can change the way an entire word is pronounced. Each letter was made to be original and eye-catching but at the same time simple and artistic.
I decided to make a design which incorporated the thinnest/lightest weight lines possible in FontStruct. This is the result; I'll add more if people like it.
These 1/32 lines cannot be accurately nudged, so a unique line has to be built for each vertical position where I want a line. These lines also cannot be centered on a place where two curves meet (such as the middle of B or R). This introduces some unintentional asymmetry to the design, but I like it, so I'll keep it.
There is also the problem that forming a diagonal line of the same line weight is nearly impossible. While angled 1/32 lines can be formed, their angles are all close to 0. No method exists for making a line which slants at 45 degrees while also being 1/32 weight. So, I had to make some thicker lines in certain areas. I don't think they detract from the design, but if you scrutinize this enough, you'll notice them.

The concept for Suavé is to represent a robotic or digital appeal. The typeface can be used mainly for captions or titles, but can only be used for body text. The name Suavé came from my nickname Jay Suavé and means cool, fun and spontaneous. Suavé is supposed to display curves, corners, and sharp points to be playful, but sophisticated.

Basketcase is a bold, decorative font. My inspiration first came from walbaum decoritve font and then I shifted more towards taking a spin on DDC harware.
For this font the idea was to make something which looked extremely clear at small sizes and which was optimized for speedreading. The low-polygonal style combined with the thick lines makes this a good font for footnotes and marginalia, thus the name.
This typeface was concevied two years ago and later shelved. Thought that it was still worth finishing so here it is. It's another take on the square dot matrix style that I did with the MinSha typeface back in 2010.

Recreation of the pixel font from Enix's "Dragon Quest" (1986) on the NES, later released in North America as "Dragon Warrior" (1989) (but with a different main font, obviously).
In the game's tileset, the dakuten and handakuten for the hiragana and katakana are separate tiles (with one exception), and positioned in the line above the character they relate to. In this recreation, these characters are pre-combined into a single glyph.
Apart from these changes, only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.
