A festive font in the spirit of the upcoming holidays :) I'm going to make more eggs, but I just had to release it before anyone else got the same idea ;P
Numerals are more solid shapes and letters are crazy patterns (There's even a captain's decoration on the G)

How about this way, Xenophilius? :^)
It looks, err, rather covoluted at the default display size. Try zooming in! 8)
P.S. There’s a starting character on Í (option+shift+s for Mac). Spaces can be used to pad the wave effect and create shapes and background textures. Enjoy!

A futuristic typeface. Each letter has a different pattern:
A - a bit distorted
B - plaiting
C - thin, straight stripes
D - something...
E - minimalistic, I think it's much more E than R
F - something...
G - G sinking in stripes, water
H - sparkling
I - cut by a knife
J - error
K - look at the shape of K - it's an arrow and it's flying towards itself
L - pixels, glass, pixel glass
M - Sector-ish
N - sunset
O - rectangle test, something like DirectX benchmark
P - sawtooth
Q - accent on the tail
R - blown by wind
S - fizzy
T - tribal
U - pixel art?
V - outline
W - something...
X - a wrench
X - diagonal stripes
Z - shiny
0 - growing diagonal stripes
1 - Chinese window
2 - gradient lightening
3 - retro-striped version of 2
4 - dotty
5 - gradient darkening
6 - sharp thing
7 - checker
8 - blurry
9 - blurry inversed and with squares
? - parquet
! - rounded piano or whatever
.,' and " - the most beautiful - completely black

Influenced by train station displays, till receipts (dot matrix), Germanic runes, stitched patterns, nomadic decoration, grid-based structures, and Connect 4. Created for a Graphic Design Level 1 project with the chosen theme of 'repetition'.

I created this typeface for a 'Found Type' project basing my designs around the word ornate. I initially focused on more of a traditional outlook, taking inspiration from classical architecture. However as my work progressed i began to take a more subtle response, studying more natural/organic forms as well as pattern design.

For my first fontstruct I started with the word Chaos and worked with the idea of pattern or 'anti-pattern'
I looked at artists like Bridget Riley and Josef Muller-Brockman and how I could interpret their kind of work but in a fractured way. I worked with collage before transferring my ideas on to font struct. It is work in progress as I am not happy with it at its current state but am stuck for ideas; every time I alter it it looks worse.
Suggestions and ideas are very much appreciated.

This work is based on M.C. Escher's woven ribbon motifs, 1938, 1942. He's made wooden stamps for the basic motifs, and rotated and combined them to create fantastic woven fabric patterns. I've simply taken his idea a step further using combinatorics. Please note, this is a Fontstruct rendering, and as such may differ from the original.

Simple yet highly effective: Ten Gradient Patterns only using the 5 square/block bricks that I am utilizing for my next super-secret/top-secret project.
The patterns repeat in lowercase so that it will be "search-able" in FontStruct (>=11 characters).
Try moving the viewer slider one or two notches to the right of PXL size view for "best" observation; however, the viewer doesn't quite do the darker patterns justice, so see comments for a better explanation as to how they were created and how you can recreate them for your own font(s).

This type face has been derived from order, initially by looking at different types of order in the natural and man-made world. I looked at sequences and patterns, which led me onto numbers and games. after playing with a few ideas i have decided to work on a typeface based around the well known game domino's using solid fonts such as Impact as inspiration for the letter forms.
This font is under construction so let me know what you think and if anything needs changing.

Symmetric patterns difying legibility. Each l/c letter consists of two different bricks in a square copied diagonally. The u/c are the same as the lower case but copied into four (making a fifth in the middle).

Inspired by perforation patterns; seemed only natural to kern it to within an inch (should be pica en?!) of it's life! alternate z and ampersand under $ and _ respectively). Best viewed with sample text.This is a clone

Block02 is the new experimental fontface by BlueTypo inspired in patterns and dotted typography, performs well in large sizes. The principal function is decorative but if you want to use it en large text, maybe nobody can read it. ; )
Download, test and share it.

A few pattern motifs based upon the Playtime grid and retaining (for the most part) the central block.This is a clone of Playtime Rounded Bold
