My submission for 2020's competition, "Future"
I wanted to try my hand at something I've never done before, a connected font. Inspired by, "Stabby - Unreachable".
A simle bold font that features a filled uppercase set and a hollow "lowercase" set.
A unique experimental font, made to look like a furnace of some sort. Only composed of uppercase letters.
A miniaturized version of Madufaros with many subtle aesthetic changes.
I may condense it further, by removing certain details (such as the backs of "f" and "t" along with the projecting front part of "l"), but I'm satisfied with it as-is for now... more testing must be done...This is a clone of Madufaros
Pixel prototype of a font for an upcoming game being developed by yours truly. This will likely be used, but only for flashbacks and dreams. The normal ingame font may be a high-res version of this, or something different - tests are still being done to determine this.
English only for now, as there are no plans to localize the game myself.
"Madufaros" = "daughter of Madu".
Original size: 9pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfect rendering)
Inverted marquee made for a friend. A lot of conversations we had informed this design, but those are best kept between us. Suffice to say that the friend in question wanted this font to embody certain principles of his avant-Daoist beliefs, and he is satisfied that the current form of this font accomplishes the goal.
Doodle doodle DOODLE!
The flaws which were previously evident in the counter shapes have been corrected. This design is now suitable for use at any legible size.
V1.1: The More Latin is in progress.
Another doodle... Well, shall I continue this one?
I sort of designed myself into a corner with the uppercase, by not using the same grid size as the lowercase. But, this choice led to an interesting and unique look so I'll keep it.
Version 1.1 - Added Polish.
A font for times when Immersive Mode is turned off. This is used for documents and signage within the Euphedoran Extradimensional Research Institute situated in Euphedora, Greater Azwelkeland, Planet Ashr within ESOSVM.
EERI is known for Fengmiao Fukota, Salva Dheen and Triste Marinan, three of ESOSVM's most-learned and chronologically oldest AI characters. The lattermost of these is often consulted (through a software called MIDAS) for analysis which I use to improve the readability of certain fonts.
Small-grid doodle which creates new combinatorial forms.
I considered this design rather rough and unappealing until I gave it negative spacing. This caused the forms to merge together in unpredictable and interesting ways. The lesson here is that sometimes the metrics, not the aesthetics, are what "make" or "save" a design.
Lunais, but with many extraneous details omitted.
A novel Connected Outline design with spiral-like tendencies.This is a clone of Lunais 2
Semiserif semispur minimalism.
This design uses a few novel glyph-shapes and techniques to achieve its look. Most notable of these is the serifed a which lets the serif protrude to the right. I avoid this feature in almost all designs, especially pixel fonts, because it adds an unnecessary 1px of spacing - but for this font, the feature can be included without changing anything for the worse. Many other glyphs have this same sort of protruding serif/spur, and the slanted geometry of the serifs/spurs affords them a look that "retreats" from neighboring glyphs, rather than seeming to protrude into them.
A small-grid font with character.
- No angles.
- Asymmetry should be present wherever feasible.
