My first fonstruction is based around the theme of malnutrition, but focuses on lesser acknowledged end of the spectrum, over-nutrition. I took inspiration from nature of skin and fat on overweight or obese bodies, putting emphasis on the folds and bulges you might typically see on the skin of a larger frame.
This is a somewhat bold font that is free for use by anyone.
This is my 3rd entry for the countercomp:note that this is derived from "MIDI-TRENTE". The actual letters, numbers etc have the same height as those on the plates of Midi-Trente.
This version frustrated me when I started it, every glyph previously on a plate required moving and adjusting their letter space (I have problems seeing the extremely pale grid lines to place letter width correctly): letter space was huge, I suspect this was linked to coming from Midi-Trente where every plate takes up 43x43 px and the letter spacing didn't automatically adjust to the narrower simple glyphs' requirements.
To make the font more useful I've added almost 200 glyphs to this version. One of them is a design --possibly not an official dingbat in Unicode-- to indicate "e-mail" as many people now give e-mail addresses and don't expect to receive a paper envolpe with stamp as the well known dingbat for "mail/letter/address" shows.This is a clone of Midi-Trente

WHAT SHOULD I MAKE NEXT?
I've been wanting to do this kind of font for ages, think of it as a soft square or a hard circle. Since it's been so long, I can't really remember the exact source of inspiration, but I do remember it had something to do with kix and his work.
The ability to kern now has obviously made the spacing better than it would have been otherwise. Thanks, Rob.
Work in progress.
You can use it if you want, but don't say that you made it.
Cuz you didn't.

Designed as part of my university course, this font is based around the word 'squishy', taking inspiration from body forms, shapes and the creases which are created from these body types. The emphasis is not so much around the shape itself, but the negative space between them.
