BENGALIQUE - Contemporary grotesk type
A condensed geometric Grotesque style, that at first glimpse looks somewhat simplistic. And for the larger part this is true. The goal was to do a ever so slightly spiced up take on this 19th Century classic style.
At it's core, the letterforms have this strong geometric grotesque backbone that is easy to recognize.
While trying to preserve that unpolished characteristic classic Grotesque basic form, I attempted implementing some personal twists, hoping to make a more contemporary but faithful variation to it's crude classic renegade traditions.
Some of the more distinguishing features for this font are it's heavily condensed style, the somewhat quirky curvatures, overshoot and/-or tapered ends in certain 'sweet spots' on a glyph's leg or terminal.
At random some legs will also ascend and descend just a tiny tad bit, gently adding this extra layer of dynamic depth and playfulness.
Spurs are slightly tapered, counters, negative spaces are in mostly rectangular and do not mirror their convex outer curves, in fact the only concave curvatures within a partially enclosed negative space are those that have strokes intersecting or when a curved shape is used to replace diagonals.
(such as; "B, Kk, Ss, Xx, Y, Zz" numerals; "2, 3, 5, 8")
Note that a couple more unmentioned characters make use of concave curves as well to accentuate specific choices.
(such as; "R, t, ß, etc.")
Visual corrections and optical compensating was exclusively performed on the top part of the glyphs, not their bottom.
-- Some additional side-bearing and kerning is still required --
No filters used...
The font works best for 'Display Type' at most point size. In smaller quantities it can be used for 'Body Type' as well with some proper adjustments to the horizontal spacing. But, nonetheless the font's condensed nature, it's tight letter spacing and some thinner strokes still heavilly affect the flexibility for legible Body-Type-use.
Recommended size for Digital-Display-use is 28pts or higher, and bellow 20pts the font becomes unreadable in Digital-Display-use. But I hope you like it so far, and feel free to let me know what u guys think! ?
That's all for now folks..
OBLONGUS - Modern light weight monolinear geometric sans
Light weight monolinear geometric sans.
■ Design summary:
One of the most striking features is it's overall well ventilated, light weight and spacious appearence. Some other key features are the glyph's elongated ascenders and descenders. These give the font a somewhat condensed and stretched look. An additional side effect of this is the extra empty vertical space above and bellow a line of text. Contributing even some more to the already ventilated character of the design.
Another key feature are the stylish rounded forms and novel long spurs. I tried to find elegance in it's simplicity, the decorative elements, turns and twists were all done in a very gentle but clearly present manner. All working together these elements give the font a very welcoming, friendly and laid-back vibe. Extra's, such as glyph alternatives will help spicing things up even a bit more.
So, while trying to remain simplistic in nature the font does have some nice stylistic appeal for sure.

STF_ELEGANZA - A contemporary Grotesque sans-serif typeface.
A font style, that while simplified by old tradition, saw new light by modern sophistication.
It comes in a solid, slight bold style that is very suitable for headlines and advertisement.
This font originally was one of my earlier works here on FS, but never realy took off or solidified into something complete and satisfying.
That was, until I recently did some digging in my private collection of incomplete and unpublished Fontstructions, searching for potential candidates and forgotten gems ore ideas that deserved a chance for a second-opinion.
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 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.
So first of all, I started by waving a proper 'good-bye' to the basic square-circular implementation of geometry, and went with asymmetrical curves for this font. I also choose to adressed the typical absence of most weight contrast in other similar designs and added a vertical orientation of weight axes with a slight contrast modulation between thick and thin strokes.
Other typographic features I included are:
• Terminals that curve all the way round, ending horizontaly. Giving them more of a classic Neo-Grotesque style 'folded-up' look.
• Stems have canted angular ending terminals and slightly vary in height for the ascending and descending strokes.

i made some very questionable design choices in this font
a typeface inspired by the music of this artist, billboard lettering and brutalism
This is a Latin, Russian and Greek font. It is a grotesque sans serif. I wanted to make a mixed version of Franklin Gothic and News Gothic.
There is also kerning especially the f and i because it makes an instant ligature.
If you like the font, you can rate, comment and download the font, I really appreciate it! :)
Object Grotesque is a medium Sans-serif typeface. With its low contrast and modern look, making it perfectly for our branding and headlines. These typeface works well both in larger and smaller sizes and handles tight spacing nicely. This font includes 235 characters.
First there was Sarvente Display, Then Sarvente Round, and now...
Sarvente Sans is here!
Sarvente Sans (A.K.A Sarvente Sans A)
Experimental endeavor into avant-garde, reversed-contrast inspired letterforms.
I will explain the font in more detail bellow in the comment section.
A contemporary geometric grotesque with some advanced typographic features included.
Its packing not one, but three different styles into a single typeface. These are divided over the basic upper-/ lowercase and "Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms" Unicode block.
It is a bold weight typeface that suits best for headlines, posters and display purpose.
See the provided sample image bellow for more detailed info on its various features.

STF_DERBY - Condensed Geometric Neo-Grotesk sans.
The idea was to make a typeface design that would suit small point size body style typography.
■ Multilingual support (91 languages)
■ Partial kerning WIP (6739 Pairs and counting)
The fontstruction is a Faux Bezier style approach, to allow the most freedom in shaping the different letterforms and curves.
Font sample is best viewed at 2x pixel size or above for a sharp result.
I hope you like it!
All caps geometric gothic sans-serif project. Its a semi bold display design that looks a little like those early grotesque types.
The uppercase O has a distinctive circular shape and has a unusual 3x3 grid square dimension. A number of glyphs still need modifications to achieve better solutions. Also is the character set far from complete yet.
I hope you like it so far
STF_NOBUNTU - Gothic humanist sans-serif style typeface.
Upgraded version of my previously published NOBUNTU font.
This version includes much more characters and symbols and many ligatures, as well as language support for most Latin languages.
It is a medium weight contemporary geometric gothic humanist sans-serif style design with rounded corners and smooth curves. All curves have a slight top & bottom overshoot. The basic Latin string, numerals and punctuation are fully kerned as well as the majority of important characters in the extended Latin string. But some still need a slight adjustment. (this will be happening in the following days.
The basic idea was inspired by the gentle round corners seen in the Ubuntu and other similar fonts. (But don't make any mistakes, it is most definetly a different font) ;)
So far I am very pleased with the clean and legible result.
Enjoy!This is a clone
STF_V0N BRAUN - Simple geometric sans-serif typeface.
I tried to recreate the Braun GmbH logo type and work it out into a full font, I used only the five letters in the logo as a reference. Since there are a bunch of revivals out there already. I just did my own interpretation of it.
Stylising 19th-century grotesque.
