I attempted a blackletter style without any knowledge or references. The result reminds me of a vampire's writing!
The name "Dethzmezenger / Death's Messenger" comes from one of many old joke bands which I created.
Original size: 17.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Another old-school font... Use Font sizes that are multiples of 3.
(3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30)
Click the pixel button on the bottom right of the sample text screen.
A pixel-art imitation of "Hightower Text" by Tobias Frere-Jones, with some influence also from Bembo and the font of Final Fantasy Tactics.
Since I used only square bricks, I had to take some liberties. More glyphs/improvements coming... I did this in one long stretch and need a break :^)
Try zooming out while already in the Pixel view!
My first time create typeface. Inspired by vintage patterned bricks Vietnam in the late 19th century and and Old English. Each glyph has same curves. Suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks!
Eclectic old-fashioned font with short ascenders and single-width proportions.

What began as a half-resolution pixel sketch then acquired a row and column of space between each respective row and column of pixels. In this way I manually doubled the grid, refining glyphs and adjusting their widths as I filled in the 75% undefined pixels that grid-doubling produces. Uppercase was my next addition, then revision, revision, revision.
Visualizing curves, contrast, bias, and stem thickness with whole pixels as the unit of increment turns out to be a very interesting game. I suspect I have just enough resolution to achieve the level of fidelity in the curves I was going for. Composites will allow for more subtle refinements while smoothing out most of the diagonal lines used (with the exception of the current N and X).
Enjoy!This is a clone
The ultra-low resolution of this grid may be difficult to grasp without cloning. Fontstruct’s logo has a nominal x-height of 3 bricks, by comparison.
The level of detail, control, and finesse possible in a given fonstruction depended mostly on resolution prior to the recent advent of stackable composites. Did you want it better? Make it bigger!
Brute force, now meet Elegance.
Instead of building individual glyphs hundreds of bricks tall, stackable composites allow us to design rich modular schemata hundreds of bricks deep. Using curved bricks at their largest scale, linear and curvilinear elements dynamically harmonize and oppose. As well, screen fonts can be effectively hinted (aside from notable lack of kerning controls) without sacrificing the integrity of joins and intersections. And the trapping possibilities, Oh the sweet sweet trapping possibilities...
