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..
Small Code is a grotesk monospaced font designed for coding.
another quest to make something readable at small sizes
update 0.2: patched brick replacement thing & added alternates
update 0.4: added arrows
First there was Sarvente Display, Then Sarvente Round, and now...
Sarvente Sans is here!
Sarvente Sans (A.K.A Sarvente Sans A)
Inspired by grotesk sans serif fonts made between the 1830s and 1960s. Also inspired by Bebas Neue. This font's name comes from the German word "anzeig", meaning "display". What characters/character sets should I do next?
Inspired by the grotesque typefaces of the late 19th century to mid 20th century.
Inspired also partially by the 1962-1977 Sainsbury's (a supermarket in the UK founded in 1869) product container designs
This typeface's name comes from the Latin name for the city of Berlin in Germany, Berolini.
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
GEO-PROTESQUE - Geometric grotesque typeface
This time I did a attempt to make a typical super rounded geometric grotesque typeface. Which is a very popular style for headline and display text. Although I tried to make a contemporary looking typeface, I kind of remained faithful to plain geometry. This font style is far from unique and could somewhat be compared with that of typefaces such as HAUS Sans, TT Norms and LL Circular
(3 great commercial pro fonts that were made by some great other designers!)
One of the most important rules for this font was to have near perfect circular letterforms in both upper and lowercase. To pull this off properly it required a large grid faux-Bézier approach.Everything else just enfolded along the way. The design, (obviously) a geometric grotesque, but also has a neo-grotesque feel as well. The almost quirky looking letter widths give this a very strong early 1900s feel.
While many letters mostly have even stroke width, upclose you'll notice some stroke width variation is going on after all. This to bring more conttract into certain area's.
The font is optimized for Body-Type in both Digital- and Print-use at very small point sizes. In Digital-display-use it performs crisp even as low as 9pts. (Not bad at all I think)
PIPER ALPHA (PRO) - A modern Grotesque sans-serif typeface.
This is a updated version of the previously published "STF_PIPER ALPHA"
Enjoy!This is a clone
Sort of a revival of the geometric letters seen on a 1916 Dutch litho to paper poster for Wm H. Müller & Co.'s Batavier-lijn passenger service Rotterdam-London. The Batavier Line was the oldest steam shipping line in the Netherlands. The line existed from 1830-1960.
The litho design was originally done by Bart van der Leck (1876 - 1958).
The fontstruction is a Faux Bezier approach, so the design grid was huge. Making it a lot of work and hard to ballance with the editors kerning feature.
I made a couple of small changes as compared to the original, most significant is the upscaled Ampersand.
I completed the alphabet plus numerals and some punctuations.
There are still a small number of spacing issues that needs to be solved.
More characters will follow soon.
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.
