An attempt to make a "classroom" font. It reminds me of a font style which was once commonly used on magnetic letters.

A multi-line design which is slightly reminescent of mazes/fingerprints. It's not designed to create functional mazes, but it is somewhat capable!
"Absinthelyric Print" is an anagram for "Labyrinthine Script".
Original size: 11.25pt. Use multiples of this value for pixel perfection. (If you use antialiasing, it will look perfect at most any size.)
1. Square bricks and 90-degree angles only.
2. Alphabetic glyphs must have open terminals; numerals and symbols must have closed terminals. Letters which do not terminate (D,O, etc.) must be broken so that they terminate.
3. Glyphs must fill the 15x15 grid.
4. Ligatures and combinatorial glyphs must fit into one letter's space.
5. Draw from the outside in.
A slightly futuristic and stencilesque design using halfwidth bricks.
The idea here was to make every glyph simple and minimal, not only in terms of overall geometry but individual line connections as well. Some glyphs are still more complex/less minimal than others, but I think it's a good amount of variety.
Experimental sliced sans serif. My goal here was to make a design which would result in an extremely compact and durable physical stencil. Almost all of the sharp points and acute angles are within the negative space, so it should be easy and very safe to make, handle and work with this stencil.
1.3 - added More Latin and Google Fonts Basic bands.
1.2 - added uppercase, changed name to "Aegris Stencil".
1.1 - edited for more readability at small size. Glyphs with enclosed loops were altered so that the "movement" of the segments always runs clockwise.
1.0 - released.
A Double/mirror design wherein some glyphs are offset and some are not. Named for Agworis, God of Chance in the DSRPG video game.
A design built on two lines which cross each other. Makes me think of an ornate wood carving script.
Alternates on uppercase (lowercase is the original design).
This was once a shy, lineal design... then it rebelled against its parents, went subtractive, and finally became futuristic knotwork. Gnarly!
Original size: 15.5pt
Pixel demake of Arizone Unicase. Same glyphs as the original.
A space-esque design made for a friend! The angular counters give this a simplified geometry which makes it easy to read despite its looks. Works well for small- or large-scale applications - chat, terminals, logos, and more. Supports Dutch, English, and Greek!
The original was cloned off and preserved elsewhere. The version you see here has centered glyphs.
An experiment in subtle asymmetry (it's most evident in the upper case).
Version 1.7 (14Sep2018) - ExtL-A added, GFB completed, Greek started
Version 1.6 (18Aug2018) - Changed name from "RC Badwolf" to "Badwolf"
Version 1.5 (15Aug2018) - altered 2357,ð
Version 1.4 (14Aug2018) - altered space width and mw

With the increased boldness, this design loses its decolike look in favor of a slightly more sci-fi one.
A lot of broken glyphs had to be fixed for this... I think I got 'em all...This is a clone of Badwolf
This font has everything Zeph-y. Decolike shapes, half-arcs, procedural asymmetry, slight gaudiness, and an ampersand that looks like a priest with a cross walking on the ocean waves.
Font from the ingame marquee display of Barcade Brawl, a 2015 game by yours truly. This was made to look similar to the system fonts from old arcade boards, PC microsystems, etc. You've probably seen the fonts I'm talking about; they're everywhere and many people refer to them singularly as "the arcade font" or "the NES font".
This is 7x7 with no wasted matrix, but it looks better without monospacing since not every glyph is the same width. It also makes a decent terminal & chat font, at least for those who don't care about the case of the messages they read and write.
Feel free to use this in your games, etc.!
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
A font made in the proto-calligraphic style I invented and used when I was a teenager. I haven't owned a nibbed pen since those days, so this font is as far as the style was ever allowed to evolve. It's somewhat lacking the handwritten character my writing had, but this regularity is the result I was trying to achieve. I had no particular use in mind for the style other than titling documents. For that reason I consider this to be a Headliner.
"I" is kerned to itself so that it can be used to make nicer-looking Roman numerals.

I decided to make a design which incorporated the thinnest/lightest weight lines possible in FontStruct. This is the result; I'll add more if people like it.
These 1/32 lines cannot be accurately nudged, so a unique line has to be built for each vertical position where I want a line. These lines also cannot be centered on a place where two curves meet (such as the middle of B or R). This introduces some unintentional asymmetry to the design, but I like it, so I'll keep it.
There is also the problem that forming a diagonal line of the same line weight is nearly impossible. While angled 1/32 lines can be formed, their angles are all close to 0. No method exists for making a line which slants at 45 degrees while also being 1/32 weight. So, I had to make some thicker lines in certain areas. I don't think they detract from the design, but if you scrutinize this enough, you'll notice them.
The last entry in the Pseudostencil series... this is built at 2x2!
It seems like the sort of font I'd see carved in relief on the sign of an old pub.
Version 1.3: Added Polish and started on Cyrillic.
Experimental polygonal superthick decolike.
A variant of Bulwarx Pixel which uses halftones to save 64% more ink than the original.
The second halftone is 60*60 (3600px) within a 100*100 (10000px) canvas. So, this halftone fills only 36% of the grid square, and yet it remains solid-looking even at 2x Original size. I think this is therefore the best single halftone on FS for actual printing purposes. Of course, modern printers are likely to be accurate enough to print this with the grid squares showing...This is a clone of Bulwarx Pixel
A pixel demake of Bulwarx. The original design was so close to being Pixel Optimized that I decided to go ahead and make a version that actually is.
I decided to make this version the same size as the original in order to preserve the ratios. This means that the font is very similar at small sizes, and sacrifices only a few corners/angles in exchange for superb crispness.
The original diacritics had to be reworked, as well... this makes the font effectively taller than original Bulwarx, but it couldn't be helped.This is a clone of Bulwarx
24-segment display. This one belongs to a small family called Calculatrix.
Like Calculatrix 12, this one is spaced so that every segment appears in its proper place, as if the text were being rendered on one giant display. (If using this in your own software, you will want to check the line spacing as it can vary depending on the software.)
I suppose this font could be used for weaving or embroidery work, as well... it has that look about it...
TIP: Try zooming out while already at Pixel size!
Calculator font with a 7-segment display. This should bring many of you back to school, but in a good way, I hope.
This one belongs to a small family called Calculatrix.
I've allowed "MWmw+" to break the grid because they were impossible to render otherwise...
Did/do you ever use oldschool calculators to write funny messages? Post your best calculator words in a comment! :D
Version 1.2: Added Greek and Polish.
An attempt to do large rounded shapes using only the stock FS bricks.
Revisiting Celosia, this time with faux-beziers instead of pixels.
Alternate @ design on ©.
I finally made a folded-/ribbon-style design. This one contains a number of experimental techniques. Most notably, the swept parts of glyphs are allowed to extend beyond the letterwidths and sometimes even the baselines. This enhances the sense of movement, creates some interesting linkages, and reduces the need for kerning.
All of these shapes can be constructed with paper or ribbon, although lots of clever folding tricks, doubling, and pinning down/securing with glue would be required.
Alternate tilde on "±".
Chamadarya is an Integral Artifice (synthetic universe) I created for the ESOSVM simulation in 2013. It's a place dominated by vast stretches of open sky punctuated by extremely tall mesas and plateaus. Most of the buildings and temples there are made from chrysoberyl, which is extensively engraved, often with a lettering style that looks much like this. Of course, that language is non-Latin so it looks nothing like this design.
A dashed line design made with the new half-arc bricks. The emphasized spurs/stems and off-kilter geometry give it a quirky, almost handwritten quality. Its striped appearance makes me think of candy as well as the Cheshire Cat, thus the name. :D
I doubt the upper case would look as cute as the lower. So I've cloned all LC to UC to make this easier to use...
Stained-glass blackletter Frankenfont thing. :D
UC cloned to LC to make this easier to use...This is a clone of Chimera Spine
Version 1.3: Added Polish.
Another asymmetrical sans-serif made for use in rulebooks for the Freeform Limitless Adventure Kit (FLAK) pen-and-paper game system. This one is classed as a hybrid and works well at all point sizes!
It began as a Constant Height design, but now I don't classify it as such since most of the letters with diacritics are taller than those without. A few letters (eszett, thorn, eta, etc.) are allowed to descend slightly, as well.
This font has also found some use on signage at a friend's bistro!
Another of Dr. Zeph's* mad experiments! This is an Alien Latin Groovy Minimalist Thingamabob with numerous unique forms of dyslexia-inducing ambiguity. It reads surprisingly well at small size!
* = not a real doctor
A half-sized, filterless version of Comicool Unicase which also has square terminals.
This has lowercase, but is made for all-caps comic book style lettering, so consider the lowercase as something added for accessibility's sake...
I took the line width variation of Art Deco fonts and turned it 90 degrees to create something bottom-heavy. The result looks really technological and reminds me of 1980s PC microsystems like the Sharp x86000, BBC Micro, Dragon32, and so on.
