Fictional aliens' attempt at the Latin alphabet. The sticks are somehow repelled from the open parts of the letters.
See also the tag "Gemscript" for other fonts relating to the media in which said fictional aliens appear.
Original size: 8.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
- 11x11 grid
- Square bricks only
- 90° angles only
- 100% constant height
- Forms must fill grid space as much as possible without becoming unrecognizeable
A funky idea that started with the A and expanded from there. Most letters are drawn by a single line winding around, although some are just not willing to follow this mantra. I found this half-finished while scrolling through my private FontStructions, looking for ideas for the CounterComp, and decided it was already an interesting entry :-)
There's an alternate, narrow set of numbers that can be reached with Shift+number (on a QWERTY, Dvorak, etc. layout); not sure which set fits the style better. Suggestions and critiques welcome for anything, and feel free to clone and poke around with it. Thanks and enjoy!
Inspired by the Maze Set. A technical fontstruction showing the usage for thinner macaroni bricks. The logic for possible counter relation:
1) Every letter is filled with thinner version of itself (self-pattern fill).
2) Outline vs Inline, emphasizing the "opposite" meaning of counter.
Another Maze design!
Going for an industrial sci-fi look. The hard angles give these letters the appearance of being made by some kind of tape or roller.
Like most of my fonts, this is made to have a constant height, with plenty of empty space between rows/lines to enhance readability. Accented characters might be completed at some point, but only if I can work their designs into the existing letter height.
This font was originally designed to be uppercase only. So, the lowercase might be considered as an alternate set.
Original size: 24pt (24pt, 48pt, etc. look most crisp when not using antialiasing)
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.
Not a font but a fast way of getting a whole word written with the touch of one single keyboard key.
CHRISTMAS / YULE in several languages, using the Latin alphabet. Ideal for use in play groups etc. Great for printing, cutting out and then decorating the letters ;)
Portugese; Gujarati, Marathi, Indonesian
Everything can now be outlined with these new awesome bricks, maybe even the classic FS logo needs to be updated now that Fontstructor is more powerful :)
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.
A modern take on American-style sports fonts. Non-inline letters are lower case, and other characters are gained by holding shift on a UK keyboard, i.e.
1=!, 2=", 3=£, 4=$, 5=%, 6=^, 7=&, 8=*, 9=(, 0=), -=_, .=>, '=@This is a clone
Improved version of Wim Gestreept, I reworked proportions and character balance. Still might turn into something else if I can work out more ligatures.This is a clone of Wim Gestreept
