Inspired by a commercial font advertised within the 'gallery' listing: FORE
Listening to cricket matches I saw a lot of trajectories in my mind when commentators discussed the balls' flight paths and where they landed, of some incredible bowling.
What a great inspiration for my first entry for the ReverseComp.
Maximum rectangle size is 16x20. The LC contains the flipped reversed UC.
I see many white-in-black designs coming in, I'm adding to them as we don't see this type very often ;)
I think that I managed to give the "impression" of those occasional graphics displayed in cricket, football, tennis and other ball-based sports (it might be hawk-eye linked) that show where balls have originated from or to predict/illustrate their continuation.
A blank space is on the underscore, a filled space on the space bar.
Numerals and very basic punctuation are done :)
With this font I think I have made a special one for every first of the month for 1 year. I hope you found one or two of the designs pleasing enough to put into your collection or maybe even use.
I made this in the spirit of the "Ondea" font designs which were inspired by Yautja's ethereal compositions :) (one piece is my phone's ringtone, thankyou Yautja!)
Part of my "1 of" series of fonts I designed to welcome new months.
The "1st of a month" group was a fun idea but I found it a little complicated to do as I don't usually build several different fonts concurrently (ghosting happens too easily).
This font could be used to make tree decorations, gift tags, glass markers, place cards/napkin cards, etc. Just print on sturdy paper in large size and then cut out. Use pale grey ink if you want to decorate this paper base with collage, embroidery/stitching type work; print in coloured inks for a jazzy look which you enhance with dots of glitter glue or sparkly rhinestones. For a hanging decoration thread a length of yarn through the top 'rectangle' or you remove the rectangle's center to thread ribbon through it.
For some different fun you could glue your print on card stock and create greeting cards, jewellry pendants, shoe decorations. With a brooch back it could make a decoration of clothing, gift bags, hats.
Have fun, joyous December dear fellow FontStructivists :) :) :)
Slab Serif 300 as a stencil font. Bridges on the UC are vertical, on the LC horizontal. Bridges on numbers, symbols, punctuation are mostly vertical.This is a clone of Slab Serif 300
With summer and holidays still on the mind I remember museum visits and art exhibitions I enjoyed ... this Art Deco style font seems a fitting offering :)
Dark Tokken X was inspired by Maren Winter's novel about a Tokkenspieler. I know that this design is far from looking like the styles of writing popular at the time when the story was supposed to have happened. I adjusted some lines of this version compared to a previous one, added real LC, numbers and More Latin diacritics :) as I want to print bottle labels with this.
I made the old style sz for the ß, and placed the alternate modern ß on the °.This is a clone
Just to show that I have finished the UC as mentioned in the 'Biscuit de l'Ouest' description. The UC are on biscuits.
Diacritics of more Latin are done as well as a few more symbols and punctuation. A crumb-free "+" is on the "%", a biscuit with surface dips is on the "(" and one with a flat surface is on the ")". The square brackets, when used without a space or letters, will make into a narrower biscuit, and are also used like round brackets.
Just in time for the "Olympic August", this font is perfect for all sports enthousiasts specially for(followers of) team sports. The font is great for posters and invitations, too. It is ideal for colouring in. Make a blank t-shirt with round neck line by using "[" plus "]".Unfortunately you won't be able to get to type those 'more Latin' glyphs -like the fractions- that aren't on your keyboard. Unless of course you know how to because I don't!
A while ago I designed the Circe family; it is quite elegant and fine. This new version, based on Circe1, has thicker lines without being bold. This meant changing a few letter shapes and lines. While it can be used with the others I would discourage mixing the normal weight versions with this one due to the structural changes to many letters.This is a clone
As part of my "First of month ..." series here is an outline font for July, ready to fill with juicy summer fruit and (ice) cream :)
Alternative letters with diacritics (free floating instead of attached, easier to read but less fun to look at;) ) are on the LC for French and German texts. An alternative 'S' which doesn't quite follow the construction rules but might be of interest, is on the LC 's'.
Chunky decorative basic set of useful glyphs. It has the same width as the other Changle fonts so it can be used with them for more visual impact. Changle consists of UC letters only, on the LC position are the UC with the thick vertical on the right.
I love the traditional French biscuits made on the French west coast where Loire meets Atlantic.
The biscuits are thin, crunchy, light, not too large, not very sweet, melt on the tongue, and biscuits very like the original can be made/baked quite easily.
The traditional version has a limited range of letters, enough to write the name of town, manufacturer and product. I've been unsuccessful in finding an image of the font which contributed just a few letters to decorate these biscuits.
I spent some time looking at other type of the Victorian/Art Nouveau era until I had collected enough information to help me design the missing letters. I added the French diacritics, naturally. I think my additions look successful and the whole font looks quite Art Neauveau and in the style used originally.
The square brackets [ and ] make a biscuit shape when used 'blank'.
Bon appetit, enjoy your "Biscuit de l'Ouest".This is a clone of Petit Biscuit
A decorative font to celebrate my birthday month :) Inspired by Art Deco elements I saw on a shop window and one of my early designercizes which thankfully I had kept private ;) because it was too muddle-messy to show.
I think that this version looks good enough to offer as my June freebee :D
Further diacritics will follow after summer.
Artsy kind of font. The name comes from: 1 thick line, 2 thin ones, another thick one, and letters are all lower case. Offering it for a week or so, to get feedback ;) before I make it private again (as I want to try adding Czech, Polish and Hebrew to this). There were a few challenges regarding heights but I think the balance is fine now and the glyphs still legible.
This design was inspired distantly by medieval manuscripts where the first letter of a paragraph (or a page) is much larger than the LC.
For names or first words in a sentence: type the UC then follow directly with the first of the desired LC; all following LC in that word, or indeed in any other usual LC word, will require 1x 'space' between each letter for legibility. Some combinations of UC-LC might look better if a 'space' is used after the UC, which of course eliminates the overlap I intended but will help visually.
I'll be offering this modern rectangular serif font to my class mates and friends when I meet them for an important anniversary of receiving our Abitur-Baccalaureat certificats.
There are some symbols and dingbats I want to add to this, after summer, hence no DL yet.
In June my class will celebrate an important anniversary of our Abitur-Baccalaureat certificates, and I'll be offering this font to my classmates and friends.
I'll add LatinA to this soon, hence no DL yet.
This is the first font of a "set" which I'll publish on or just before the 1st day of every month, for a year.
This design started out with a blocky look on thick bases to create a kind of joined-up look.
But a glitch on 2 glyphs gave the gap, which I liked upon reflection and recreated on all glyphs. I adjusted spacing and some drops below the baseline.
It is cloneable because I'm sure that my fellow Fontstructors can add great glyphs to make it more useful. The font could do with more symbols, punctuation and some basic diacritics ;)
Happy cloning ... please show us your additions! This octagonal design needs some more punctuation and a few necessary symbols to be 'useful' on posters, folder spines, clothing etc. Courageous folk will add diacritics.
Clauses bring bags of goodies to you. On LC you find numbers for an advent calendar. The UC Clauses give UC letters. Clauses on numerals look into a different direction and offer numbers 0-9. There are also exclamation and question marks, an opened and closed empty bag, and 5 decorated ones.
Enjoy ... Happy Celebrations to you!
I was looking for some "decorative" glyphs to embellish greeting cards' frames; having come across one of my Greek sets I decided to make the whole Greek alphabet rather than stop at the 7 symbols I liked for my project.
