A continuation of ideas present in Technokratz, with some imagination added for good measure!
This font is insular to the point that it creates new ambigrams and ambiguous words. Here are a few that I found:
AND = ROD
FACE = FREE
FONT = FROM
FOX = HOT
FREE = TREE
INTO = TOMB
LAY = EAT
PHYSICS = EXISTES
SOLD = SAID
TECH = MECH/MEEK/NECK
THE = AXE
TOXIC = MOXIE
VICTORINOX = LAWSUIT (hah, just kidding)
WATER = TAMER
YEATS = TEAMS
Since I like this ambiguity so much, I will keep working to make letters resemble other letters even more! The real trick is finding these synergies while still preserving enough variability in forms that things can still be read flawlessly.
"A futuristic attempt at 'insular' English. The main design rule was 'make it bend where it shouldn't'. This could symbolize some cyber-dystopia-lord-dude's desire to stop at nothing, or something."
This design inserts a dot into every empty grid square. Off-grid empty squares don't count - there must be an utterly empty space of 1 square's size ON the grid. The dotting further imparts a unique identity to every letter.
Shall I continue this one? Let me know. :DThis is a clone of Technokratz

My Font Groups:
Mixed-case, low-legibility headline font inspired by '80s-era arcade games and the hard-to-read graffiti bubble letter alphabets of the same time period. Free to use, with attribution, even commercially.
My theme was messy. I began looking into paint and the effect it can give when the ink runs out towards the end of the stroke. This led me to looking into graffiti and the 'messy' appearance it can give a place. I took photographs on my way home from Arnolfini of any typographic graffiti I came across and I traced the ones I was fond of. I particularly liked this one that had drips at a slight angle as it was written on a slant so I reproduced my own interpretation of it.
Ok, this isn't completed. I got some problems with a pair of letters.
By the way, no idea if someone already did something similar.This is a clone
My font is based on the theme 'Squishy'. I decided to produce a typeface with an uneven distribution throughout to reflect the irregularity which I found when researching squishy objects/type. When producing the font on Fontstruct, the smoothness of the letters was altered due to the use of pixels, which I thought worked really well and gave the type a nice style/effect and contrasted well with the smooth forms of the letters so I stuck with it. My inspiration came from graffiti throwups and from basic research which I did into the word 'Squishy'.
Introducing Caprine 1.3! Now supports Cyrillic!
Caprine is based on roller graffiti you can see in virtually any urban area. The straight and rigid lines and angles, along with the thick drop shadows make the face a real crowd pleaser.
