This typeface converts your typing into musical notes. The idea is very simple and can create realistic looking sheet music. The font includes upper and lower case letters and numbers together with a treble-cleft with a time signature, a hash sign, dividing bars, an end bar and a double end bar.
Write your message on your word processor. You will need to use 48pt to have all the five staves showing up so keep your message short :)
Start each sentence with a treble-cleft which is the "&" key on your keyboard, it also adds a 4/4 time signature for authenticity. Upper case letters show as double notes, lower case and numbers as single notes. Numbers should be written with a comma "," between them eg:1,2,3 etc 10,11,12 etc 100,101,102. The comma inserts a short length of blank staves.
Now ...... comes the fun ! Count four notes and press the "!" key. This will place a barline vertically across the staves (the five horizontal lines on which the notes are written). Repeat this every 4 notes until you reach the end of the line then press the "." key. You must end with a full 4 note bar even if this leaves a space at the right margin. At the beginning of the next line press the "&" key to insert a new treble-cleft. Count 4 notes then the "!" key etc .... Repeat this process until you reach the end of your message, finish with a "."
Use this type face as a cipher to send secret messages which can be easily read by the recipient if they have this typeface on their computer. To anyone else this will appear to be sheet music.*° It can also be used to convert poems into a musical score, to rewrite the music of simple songs, word for word, or to compose original music. I am sure you will be able to find other uses also. Have fun ;)
*° Actually it won't appear as sheet music as I had hoped because the computer receiving the message will use its default font to print out the message if this font is not installed. That applies to all so called code fonts ... what a shame!
This is a rough version of semaphore using a dancing figure. The position of the legs represent the position of the flags.
Made to print some decorative corners on A4 sheets; this will make a novel Yule gift for someone lucky enough to know me ;)
Of course it could also be used as a code:D
Based on the decorative identity squares that FontStruct members get when they join. My design is based on the elaborate squares of Lady Quadretti. I just had to replace the decorative bricks with the plain square which showed how much Quadretta relies on the variety of bricks to be interesting and different.This is a clone of Lady Quadretta
This is an alternative version of Morse Code, where a high peak is a dash and a small peak is a dot. Includes numbers and some punctuation.
This is the first time I've ever created a font. Please let me know if you find any bugs.
