STF_ELEGANZA (Therapy) - Contemporary geometric humanist sans
A font style, that while simplified by old tradition, saw new light by modern sophistication.
It comes in a solid medium weight that is very suitable for body style text with good readability, But it does perfect clear headlines or advertisement as well.
The goal was to make a clean but somewhat more contemporary and playful take on a 'Grotesque' sans-style.
In an attempt to break away from the traditional trend of Grotesque type designs which evolved more around pure geometric shapes and aim for perfect circular, triangular or square shaped letterforms, and in return give many of them a somewhat harsch and featureless mechanical appearance. I choose to achieve the opposite, aiming for a softer, friendlier and more humanized feeling instead.

This is the 'Therapy'-style in the 'ELEGANZA' typeface family. This version basically aims for the exact opposite effect than what the Tight' version did. The name 'Therapy' relates to its 'opened-up' appearence and the overall de-stressed propperties of this version. The more relaxed and spacious distribution remotely resembles the characteristic feel of a typewriter face. But the main purpose for this version is to create visual hierarchy in your layout.

I hope you like it...This is a clone of STF_ELEGANZA (Tight)
A font that sometimes needs spacebar if the spacing doesn't work properly.
UPDATE 9: The B's, and the 8 use new blocks to get their unique design. I'll also be listing new updates from here.
UPDATE 10: Had to update G too.
UPDATE 11: Updated a letter from More Latin, in the O's. It looked too ugly before.
UPDATE 12: Updated Q.
UPDATE 13: Fixed R to align with P.
UPDATE 14: Updated M and N. Same aligns for Shidinn variant
UPDATE 15: Added Hebrew alphabet and fixed more letters, also adding new letters in More Latin A section. Also added new Greek stuff.
UPDATE 16: You may start noticing new A characters at the bottom. Its because i'm trying to start Vietnamese Loresa letters. Thats why there is an O and U with a hook in the font now, and More Latin is fully completed. [only uppercase LETTERS, numbers is just another] Its a W.I.P. though.
UPDATE 17: B gets a new design again. I don't know how i didn't see it before.
UPDATE 18: I forgot about V... And W.
UPDATE 19: Made sure W was okay in usage by shortening it.
UPDATE 20: It may be a milestone [kind of] but it's actually the update for punctuation!
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.
This typeface attempts to capture the movement of a rose's stem, done through the its natural curls and the inclusion of thorns. These thorns are what protects the typeface itself, just as a rose protects its flower.
All cap bold serif
kerned : Russian, Latin Basic, More Latin
I can't even type cyrillic extended, there are too many letters in latin extended, I don't have greek keyboard either
I wish I could make everything, but I'm a human after all (or am I?), I decided that this is good enough
Recreation of the pixel font from Konami's "Jail Break" (1986). Fairly standard, with the classic Konami "Y", and a few interesting details in on the "J", "K", "W" and "Z". Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.

A font which has a spurless, sans-serif, pixelated polygonal look which is somewhat reminescent of fonts used in VHS technology.
A lot of applied science went into this design. It's designed to remain legible on all media in all use conditions, provided that one uses the original size or a multiple thereof. Numerous technologies and mediums were employed to realize this objective.
"Diaspora" was tested and refined for use with/on/against:
• CRT, LCD & e-Ink screens
• image formats & compressed imagery (GIF, JPG)
• printers (inkjet, bubble jet, laserjet, & thermal)
• analog video & multi-generational copies (VHS, Super 8)
• digital video (AVI, MP4, MPEG, WEBM, WMV)
• 3D and voxel models (Blender, MagicaVoxel, POV-Ray)
• dynamic scaling hardware (game consoles and capture devices)
• imagery plugins & filters, including image degraders
• image scaling/interpolation hardware & software
• image recognition hardware & software
These all have traits which degrade, distort, compress, glitch, or otherwise alter imagery in various ways. This design aims to minimize the loss of legibility from these effects and to attain the best scores possible in various forms of imagery analysis. So far, this has proved extremely useful, as it can remain fully legible even when extreme JPG or video compression are applied to it thousands of times.
A piece of software I helped write, called the Marinan Imagery Deconstruction AI System (MIDAS), is being used on captured images of this font. The end objective is to realize the design which has the best all-around Marinan Interpretability Value (MIV) for all the tested platforms - the design which is considered by MIDAS to be the most legible in the most media under the broadest range of use conditions and quality levels.
MIDAS uses a set of considerations made with both humans and computers in mind, so a high MIV does not necessarily equal a better font - it just means one that the system thinks is easier to visually interpret. Note the use of the phrase "visually interpret" as opposed to "read". MIDAS tries to determine how well people and computers can tell what shapes are, not how much enjoyment they'll get from reading or how much strain they might undergo while doing it.
1.0.0 - initial release.
1.0.1 - More Latin support added.
1.0.2 - First batch of tests run.
1.0.3 - gjy5&ßẞ were improved, some glyphs added.
1.0.4 - Second batch of tests run. Space width reduced.
1.0.5 - Experimentally converted to a rounded spurless design, then converted back to a plain spurless after testing. A few new ligatures were added.
1.0.6 - Cyrillic and Greek enter development. Many of these letters must be altered to be distinct from their Latin counterparts.
1.0.7 - Some spacing values changed to increase internal consistency. More difficult tests are being devised. However, since only I seem interested in this type of work, this project is going on hiatus for some time.

This script has two versions: one with individual letters, formed with the Latin alphabet, and a syllabical one, formed with katakana script.
Latin alphabete is complete. Katakana is missing sounds VA to VU and XA to XU due to lack of space. Suggestion: replace missing sounds to the closest ones available. On the keyboard, letters A to U form syllables FA to FU. To form syllables XA to XU, try typing 'x' before the vowel.
A cipher/code used by the Kibble Cabal, a mostly animal-based team of misfits and food thieves in the game Trap Farmer Brer Brah. This code is very similar in application to the "Hobo Code" from the United States in the late 1800s. It makes a pretty good cipher, as well!
Original size: 8pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
