A modified version of Younger Futhark, primarily focused on standardising the symbolism between voiced and unvoiced phonemes.
Just to test out the font contructor, and being unable to find exactly what I needed, I decided to try my hand at the younger futhark!
Capital letters are the long-stave runes, while the lowercase letters are the short-twig runes. They were generally not used simultaneously, so pick one system and stick to it.
There are many repeated glyphs, and this is because of how the system works; there are several closely-related sounds that share a rune. K/G, F/V, B/P, to name a few. (and don't get me started on the vowels)
I tried to match the latin letters you're typing to whatever rune most closely corresponds to it... from a norse point of view? As these writing systems are not a 1-1 match, it won't be 100% accurate all the time, and I'm also an amateur hobbyist from Norway, but I tried my best with what I knew.
For example, while I used ár (ᛅ/ᛆ) for E due to its usage in the [ei] diphtong (eg. in names like Einar (ᛅᛁᚾᛅᚱ)), it has really no rune on its own, and can also be written with íss, the I rune.
Compatible with most extra letters used in Scandinavian languages and Old Norse, and not really meant for writing in modern English, where nothing is consistent at all.
Update, Oct. 3rd: Fixed the lǫgr (ᛚ) rune. It is no longer mirrored. Not sure how I managed to make that glaring error, and I apologise to the thirty people who already downloaded this.
I am going to expand this font. Why not, after all? It is my best work so far.

In this font, every letter corresponds to the same-sounded rune in the Futhark. Uppercase for the Elder, lowercase for the Younger. Extras have been assigned to runes with non-english sounds. Thurisaz is Q, eihwaz is X, inguz is C, and jera is both J and Y.
