Zakhrafa is a type of Islamic art which consists of embellished geometric designs. It is often used to complement Arabic calligraphy on architecture to bookcovers and various media. The inspiration of this font comes from the various Islamic patterns that can be seen on buildings all across Qatar. After living there for 8 years, I learned a lot about the Islamic culture which is what I want the font to reflect.This is a clone
This a typeface designed to echo the shapes and patterns found across manholes which cover our network of systems across the UK. Manhole covers have been beautifully decorated with patterns but also act as indicators and safety features. Both patterns and the shaping of letterforms are inspired by manhole covers I have found. Designed to be a display typeface at large scales!
Cloned from Vertalics originally, but not one single block remains.
This is a free font version from my commercial font family, Lephnia, which includes Lephnia Drop Caps.
Outlined novelty sans font in a black weight with a repeating pattern, or texture, which is a mesh grid. This font demands to be seen in large (poster/billboard/titling/header/headline) sizes.

Brick Basket in a format that's more useable for graphic artists. While the original was made for building new font designs, this one is made to be useful as a font in its own right.
I will update this one, along with the original, any time I have new ideas. Both designs have bricks that are unique to them, as well. This is due to glitches I encountered while cloning as well as the fact that BBRev2's designs are specifically for graphic art. BBRev2 also contains a few stock FS bricks just to expand the range of textures it can create.This is a clone of Brick Basket
Some puzzling boxes, indeed! These are named for Lemarchand, maker of the puzzle box which appeared in the movie series "Hellraiser".
This design has a variety of textures and optical illusions up its sleeve. See the sample for a few of them.
Original size: 47pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A pixel font disguised as a high-resolution one. It's a pretty effective disguise thanks to the gaps between bricks.
A doodle made with Brick Basket.
These glyphs are made to look like trellises, wall screens or stained glass windows. But I think they can pull off many other looks as well.
Looks best at massive sizes! Good for logos, title cards, etc.
149 custom bricks for your perusal! Only custom bricks are in the palette, so you can clone this and easily start drawing right away.
I'll definitely be adding more with time. I love this sort of experimentation!
Framed, perfect symmetry, seamless tiling, no composites, no filters, no MSG.
This was made in the style of a reticle or selection field, but it is capable of much more. It can create the appearance of a cargo net, electric grid, or caution-taped area. It's high impact and captures attention quickly, much like an electric caution cargo net.
Use with 0 line spacing for the best effect!
A project I've been working on for some time that combines a readable writing system with a means of creating decorative streams of symbols, allowing for practical or artistic use. It is designed to be writable in the same way as English, with a couple key differences:
end of sentence within a thought:
. = SPACEBARx2
? = ?SPACEBAR
! = !SPACEBAR
end of thought:
? = ?-
! = !-
end of paragraph:
. = .
? = ?-
! = !-
numbers at the beginning of a sentence = ###-SPACEBARtext
numbers at end of sentence = textSPACEBAR-###SPACEBAR-
Use as applicable to avoid numbers and letters bleeding into each other.
For purely artistic streams of writing, Start every sentence with a capital, skip spaces, and use '-' as a period. This allows for a smooth bar of symbols without any random bits jutting out that can be used for framing or backgrounds.
Modernism alphabetThis is a clone of STF_HETERODYNE_(SOLID)
A letter decorated with a tilting dot pattern.
It's inspired by lettering seen on a brochure for Dutch theatre group "Sater" which was designed by "Jurriaan Schrofer".
I couldn't get it much more accurate that this, neither do I think it was wise desicion to make the main design isometric. Since now I'm tied to this projection. I might do a straight aligned version in the future.
Anyway, I think it is still a cool looking typeThis is a clone
Inspired by the Maze Set. A technical fontstruction showing the usage for thinner macaroni bricks. The logic for possible counter relation:
1) Every letter is filled with thinner version of itself (self-pattern fill).
2) Outline vs Inline, emphasizing the "opposite" meaning of counter.
A piece of constructivism inspired by Dutch artistic movement "De Stijl".This is a clone of STF_FABRICON_(OUTLINE)
Another experimental font for texturing work. This one uses only an 8x8 grid, but since it isn't pixel art, a much greater variety of patterns is possible. Every glyph in the font repeats as a seamless texture in both directions.

Made to print some decorative corners on A4 sheets; this will make a novel Yule gift for someone lucky enough to know me ;)
Of course it could also be used as a code:D
A font formed out of Truchet Tiles.
Truchet tiles are formed by taking a single tile composed of opposing quarter circles, then applying its inverse in a random fashion. Here, I've inverted the tiles to create outlines, then developed the negative aspects of the letters, thus creating a reversal of a reversal of a reversal! Boom! Now you're in the third dream level of Inception.This is a clone
This is not just another tile set that simply uses a wider variety of brick in each glyph. I added "twists". I wonder how long before someone notices ;)
Inspired by military and the need for all participant parts to be regiment. My typeface incorporates the distinct 'V' shape of a collar, responding to the idea of uniform.
1. Adjective: Remaining the same in all cases and at all times.
2. Noun: The distinctive clothing worn by members of the same organisation or body of people.
I initially responded to the level of regularity in military demonstrations, particularly from nations such as North Korea or Russia. Each character in my typeface is formed from the same starting shape to reflect this level of standardisation.
