A dashed line design made with the new half-arc bricks. The emphasized spurs/stems and off-kilter geometry give it a quirky, almost handwritten quality. Its striped appearance makes me think of candy as well as the Cheshire Cat, thus the name. :D
Somehow I doubt the upper case would look as cute as the lower... this may well remain an all-lowercase design...
Best viewed at 2x or 3x Pixel size!
An evil electromagnetic zigzag tape reel. Looks almost embossed, as if the letters were "pressed" into the waves somehow. In that way it reminds me of old hand-operated label makers. It also makes me think of electricity, TV static, fractured glass, and more depending on font size and color.
The name is inspired by an attack from a notoriously bad NES game, "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde".

Acrophobia with ratios changed so it isn't quite as tall. There is now line width variation which slightly enhances the "engraved" look this design has.
Unlike its predecessor, this one works well as a pixel font!This is a clone of Acrophobia
RC Dynamite with altered filter sizes. The result looks as if it's sizzling, part of a mirage, made of cardboard, or even made by tire tracks!This is a clone of RC Dynamite
Pixel demake of Goud. This is easily the best one in the family for body text, as it remains crisp at all sizes!
Original size: 9pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A font made to the height of the visible field when the FontStructor is zoomed all the way out on my screen. I've always wanted to make something that vaguely pushed one of FS' limits - in this case, the height of the field which I can observe without scrolling.
Well, I could've made this even taller, but I wanted it to be somewhat useable at least. :D
This was originally a pixel design, but then I changed my mind and converted it to high-res. That gave it a more architectural look.
Fuzzy Logic, but the darkest halftone has been replaced with a copy of the lightest.
The bands in the overlapping regions are artifacts of the FS preview. They don't show up when the font is used elsewhere. However, any size which is not a multiple of the original can create a different type of banding... I recommend using this at larger sizes...This is a clone of Fuzzy Logic
A vertical take on Morse code. These glyphs are read left-to-right from the bottom up and spaced so that 1 pixel = 1 unit of time, whether moving horizontally or vertically. Letters have 3 spaces between them and words have 7 spaces.
The result is a concise design that can easily be fed to tone-generation or image-to-audio software (e.g., AudioPaint) to produce accurately encoded & timed Morse code, no matter the frequency (speed) of the transmission. You can use this principle to create and place messages into music or games, make messages match a tempo or beat, arpeggiate them and turn them into music or sound effects, and much more.
The name is a pun. :P
Original size: 4pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
Written language of the Skalmish, people within my simulation ESOSVM. These were the people initially used to colonize the universe "Rskalmwayt" wherein several stories take place, including Dheen's Folly and Trap Farmer Brer Brah. 5132 random selections were taken from Oinai stock and placed on Planet Fyromr, and their descendants became the Fyromrese.
Glyphs of this style can be seen on cave walls, objects, signs, records, etc. dating up to the time when I began to intervene in the workings of the Rskalmwayt simulation (ESOSVM Canonical Year 16573440000). They were always pixel art - no high-res renditions of these shapes were ever created, so there's ample room for reinterpretation.
Like most Runic languages (including Elder Futhark), these glyphs have a specific ordering associated with them. Additionally, in written Skalmish the glyphs which make up a word are always written in alphabetical order. Glyphs have no associated sound components. They were used to record gestural communications, so there's no way to speak them. Had this language been spoken, however, it probably would have used a priority-based system wherein certain glyphs were pronounced before others or preferentially stressed. Kind of like Thai language, but way more convoluted.
An ornate Goud with lots o' thorns! Now with MORE THORNS.This is a clone of Goud
A chimera made from Byzantine Exasperation and Terran Pixelcruiser.
There's also a squared version of this called Mechanos B, but I want to see if I can make it more distinctive before I publish it...This is a clone
Rather than serve an ornamental or decorative purpose, this one is made to be as clean as possible so that it works well for body text. It's highly legible at small size, so it could potentially even be a programmer's font!
"Goud" stands for "Garden of Unearthly Delights", the name of an album from the band Cathedral.
7x9 font used for the MozPOS, a cellphone-like device from my game Trap Farmer Brer Brah. Only the glyphs from the original font have been included.
"Moz" stands for a person's nickname. "POS" stands for... well, you know. :D
A font in which only right turns are allowed. Where lines would be forced to turn left, they are segmented instead.
Even when these glyphs are flipped or transformed, they remain able to be drawn via right angles only!
A stencil version of RC Dynamite made for laser cutting! Could also be an LCD Segment design with slight modification...This is a clone of RC Dynamite
An attempt to make a Calculatrix with both squares and hexagonal segments. The result doesn't really fit in with the others, but it has a harsh and highly technical appearance about it which I like.
More glyphs later, maybe?
An improved version of Derpberd which remains true to the original style.
It's still very casual-looking and very well suited to comics and pixel art, but it's also more regular and readable than before.This is a clone of Derpberd
Logotype made by request for a friend.
I went against a few of my own conventions for this one. The close spacing might look a bit strange at times, but it eliminates the need for kerning while also creating a unique look. The overlapping spurs make me think of thorny plants!
This is an original design, but it does make me think of Planescape: Torment when I look at it, thus the name!
Another of Dr. Zeph's* mad experiments! This is an Alien Latin Groovy Minimalist Thingamabob with numerous unique forms of dyslexia-inducing ambiguity.
* not a real doctor
Another experimental outline balloon thing, made for a friend. Looks best at massive sizes!
I'm taking a few days off to clean up the mess left by the recent hurricane...
Experimental brush/pen thing. Has a slightly spooky look. Because of their tapering curves, many glyphs can render with a "split" or "stencil" look about them.
This design is not informed or inspired by any existing typographical traditions. I set out to make the "claw" bricks (as I call them) into a font and this is the result.
(Work in Progress)
Made by request: Icons based on the characters from Battle For Dream Island, a YouTube series about assorted inanimate objects competing with each other for the eponymous Dream Island.
I'll continue this one soon...

B - Bubble

Made by request for an associate. "RADD" stands for "Research And Development Division".
Stemless superminimal 2x2. It's small yet bold, much like Napoleon!
A seriously stemless sans-serif. It approaches minimalism, but doesn't quite get there. This gives it a look that lets it blend in with lots of things!
A stencil design in which diagonal cuts are used to imply angles and curves. It does not quite obey the rules of a segmented display, but it tries its best!
This is inspired by some text on the side of the Sheepslayer Mk.2, a flying dragon car piloted by Lyll "Hatch" Soretti in my game Seven Candles.
I wondered what a plain version of Candylander would look like, so I made this. :D
More glyphs soon!This is a clone of Candylander
Experimental font made with the new half-arc bricks. It reminds me of striped candy, but also looks like tape reels or gaskets for some strange machinery!
Experimental font made with the new pizza slice brick. :D
Somehow it makes me think of jukeboxes, particularly letters like "A" and "O"...
No filters, just nudging!
