Ten years ago, a StumbleUpon Fontstruct on April 8, 2008 has been one of the highlights of my life. Few things have provided so much joy and fewer things have kept my interest for so long. Type design has always been a fascination for me and the simplicity of the UI/UX of fontstruct has allowed me to explore all that I can imagine without getting in the way while letting me do as I please for the most part. In times of creativity, fontstruct was there to let it flow, and in times of personal lows, fontstruct was there to allow me to ignore that which was beyond my control. Furthermore, the overall civility and helpful nature of the fontstruct community is still one of the best on the internet. I have been using the fontstruct website almost daily for 10 years now and rarely do I not see something new that is amazing and awe inspiring. The creativity of the designers past and present is incredible.
I wish to thank FontShop for sponsoring fontstruct for so long allowing it to grow. Most importantly, I wish to thank Mr. Meek for creating and constantly enhancing this incredible gift of creativity and a calming haven for over-active minds.
Fancy Pantaloons is a typeface for when you are feeling a bit silly and pretentious without wanting to be too over-the-top. This typeface reminds me of old lettering on signs from the early 1900's. A combination of Victorian, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and a bit of Techno.
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!
The font used in Super Mario 64 when speaking to people or reading signs. These characters are mostly derived from the game and used to recreate the font. Glyphs such as the asterisk and curly bracket are made with modified or existing characters used in-game (star instead of asterisk, curly bracket made from parenthesis, etc.)
I hail from Kerala, Malayalam is the native language of my state.
Through this project I wanted to design,
something which is different from its complex rounded forms!
That’s how I came up with Videshi. It means foreigner in Malayalam,
the form of the font is more geometric and structured compared to
the existing Malayalam fonts which are more of round shape.
Hence it is a foreigner to the existing Malayalam fonts.
I "aged" my Biscuit de l'Ouest font for a friend who wants it for a website about her old English breed of cattle.This is a clone of Biscuit de L'Ouest
Font based on the letters used in Intellivision games. I do not own this font, this is simply a recreation to make it easy for others to find.
Quite different from Archaus, but can be considered as from the same series.
Spacing got much better ;)
Additional lines give this a certain retro-deco feel.
I made this with the a retro, space, horror theme. I really wanted this to give off a space horror vibe, something that was meant to be used with space horror movies, games, or things like that. I hope you like this typeface, and comment with constructive criticism!
