A typeface meant to be simplistic yet with a strong personality. The initial inspiration came from crosses and wire. I was also inspired by the overall theme of the horror genre in gaming and how their title fontypes look. Though simple did prove to be a challenge (haha).
Designed for display text.
An awkward name perhaps, for an odd little, simple version of an "LED Screen-slash-Scoreboard-Style Capitals Only" font... (I plan on adding the Extended ASCII, Soon™)
Years ago, I contacted the author of a similar-styled font, to ask specifically for Commercial Use of his font, that looked somewhat like this one (I have been using it "Officially" at my Blog since then).
Today, I found Fontstruct and thought "why don't I make my own version this font, not only for my own use, but for others to possibly use as well?".
And so, here is an 'LED Screen' or 'Dot Matrix' style font (also usable as a 'Pixel style' font) - with punctuation and a couple of 'accents' - but capitals only, as traditional LED Screens or Scoreboards ("Score Screens") would have used; made for you, on this wonderful, easy-to-use interface, Fontstruct.
I plan on making many more, including finishing those I started on my own in other font-creation applications!
I am 'Troy from The Game Tips And More Blog', by the way, heh

This fontstruct projects a very sincere and personal feeling into your work, useful on many platforms. Designed to be a title typeface.
The theme for this typeface is the word 'Filthy'. The letterform's structures are based on dust and the way it separates when a finger is dragged through it. Dust collects on objects that have been untouched for periods of time, often through neglect. The use of negative space and lack of border draws attention to the dot-work dust that forms around the accents of the letters. As a finger cleans dust, larger piles form where there is a change in direction. This helps identify the individual characters whilst keeping a minimalistic approach. This font can be used for headings and posters, or shop designs and logos. I have always felt this font would go well on a burger shack to help give a rustic or edgy look.
'Nailed It' is a unique and exclusive display typeface primarily designed to portray a message of something to be wary of and to represent the dangerous. The font is physically made of various size nails and splints of timber, positioned to replicate an original font based loosley on a brush script typeface in capitals. Uses for the font could range from circus signs to hardware shops (the most common, obviously).
I don't know if this has been done before.
It's just a simple & elegant solution utilizing 4 parallel lines.
See how neat the letter 'B' is formed by 6 rectangles.
I made this font because I like that the letters could be written in a vertical stack, horizontal row, or clumped (though I didn't make them touch vertically here, as was my intention).
I only created capital letters, and there are a minimal number of glyphs available.
I'm also aware that some of the letters are difficult to read; I was trying to keep the amount of design within each box low, though I'd appreciate improvements for letters like: P,U,V,L,F and for the punctuation.
