FAKOS VARYTITAS - Futuristic Sci-Fi stencil design
A Stencil letter with a rather unorthodox form.
The main concept is that of the Sci-Fi / Tech aesthetic. But the asymmetrics in its geometry, various custom build curves and incisions somewhat tune down the mechanical geometric tone of the letterforms, and introducing a slight more humanized touch to its rhythm. These non-traditional attributes making this more of a novel stencil typeface with a strong personality.
The typeface was inspired by space age tech. Its a display style font that is perfect for when your project has to have that typical techy or futuristic aesthetic look. Its best used at large size, but it does work in smaller size format as well.
The font includes:
• uppercase, lowercase & numerals
• accented latin
• symbols & punctuation marks
• some glyph alternatives
• ornamental decorative elements
All "lingual" characters are functional stencils, the only exceptions that aren't stenciled are the ornamental decorative symbols and dingbats.

ZEPHTON (Pro) — 70's future retro / sci-fi style typeface
[ INTRODUCTION ]
A revival of the Sci-Fi lettering used by the “Atlantic Toy Company” for their “Galaxy Serie”. A science fiction themed toy line that was manifactured from 1978 to the early 1980s.
The lettering seen on their packeging uses a modified and filled version of a typeface called Paperclip Contour, which was designed by Dutch graphic designer Ad Werner, and was issued by Mecanorma in 1973. There is very little information provided on the web in regard to the original typeface by Werner. And even fewer images. Nothing that show a complete character set, only FontInUse submissions. But taken from the research I conducted I can safely conclude that the original Paperclip Contour typeface has just one style, which is outlined, and that it includes a lower case(a-z) letterset with numerals and just a had full of symbols and punctuation.
That being said, this actually is the second revision I did for the lettering. The innitial first version had a super basic character set, as well as a couple of mistakes included alongside some compromises in respect to certain glyphs. This was due to the limited knowledge I had in regard to the use of the FS-editor at that time. So the font wasn't 100% accurate. This newer version correct most of the inconsistencies that were present in the older version.
Due to the incomplete resource material on the original Paperclip Contour by Werner I can't check accuracy of this newer version. But I think that apart from the thicker weight in Zephton its 99% accurate.
Where the older version ran short by a lot, this new revision in fact can qualify as a full font, with everything from numerals, symbols, puntuation marks as well as accented letters for more Latin languages. And ever some glyph alternatives. Making this much more of a functional font.
[ THE FONTSTRUCTION ]
The font is a “Unicase” style typeface that has only “Minuscules” included. There are glyph alternate forms for several letters as well as a secondary set of numeral figures. These characters are located in the Unicode blocks for “Halfwidth And Fullwidth Forms” and “Private Use Area 1”
There is also a full (a-z, 0-9) alphanumeric set with “Contour Outlined” glyph alternative forms, which is located in the “Private Use Area 2”
The font saw a major update that tied everything together, and sort of finalizes the font for proper use.
Several characters have received minor adjustments in order to find a balanced harmonic distribution of typeset material. Also several improvements have been made to the overall shape and form of various characters. In addition to that numerous new characters been designed, expanding the character set even further.
Work also continued in the metric department, building the kerning table, that contains 2368 stored kerning pairs so far. Spacing was reduced by 50% to tighten the letter fit significantly. To round things up and convert it into a more functional typeface some of the characters were rearranged and/or relocated to different Unicode blocks.
[ CONTOUR OUTLINED GLYPH ALTERNATIVE FORMS ]
The contour outline glyph alternative forms are not 100% accurate conversions of their solid counterparts. This due to minor design difficulties that simply made it impossible to fully execute it at its current size and with this thin stroke weight. The deformities are simply the result of a lack in fully smoothened stroke contours in some of the transitions from diagonal to curved parts. These flaws are minute, and mostly only noticable at large size rendering, but nonetheless present. In small to medium size text these imperfections are hardly visible, and pose no real problem. Anyway.. the contour outlined glyphs are still very close approximations nonetheless, just so that it happens to be with a small number of tiny imperfections.
As a direct result of this the two sets with glyphs do not fully match and therefor not seemlessly overlap.
This can be ignored for most part in the majority of the font's application, but it does create two important limitations:
1) Contour outlined glyphs are unsuitable for vector path outline rendering when the stroke alignment is set to "Outside" (Configured like that with threshold for the corner point angle set to sharp these imperfections in the glyph contours can generate spikey disruptions to appear in the stroke rendering).
— So this configuration should be avoided.
2) The two styles are unsuitable (or incompatible) with stacked “multi-layer" overlay text compositions.
— Simply due to the fact the two variations aren't a 100% true match.
They do on the other hand, combine perfectly side-by-side in text composition.

A font inspired by the Scratch game "Loops" and it's logo. Designed to be a 1:1 recreation of the original logo and with artistic liberties for every other letter.
Credit to @7eps80 on Scratch for the game and the logo.
A Sci-Fi themed display font.
This is my first shot at making an actual display typeface. Honestly, I am quite impressed at how this turned out.
Although this is still very imcomplete, I am planning to go back & continue this Fontstruction soon.This is a clone
A while ago I had the concept basic forms for this design pre-published in an effort to try and reach out to y'all, asking if any of you was interested in joining me in this attempt to create a multi member community collaboration.
The original idea had I invisioned at that time was; presumptuous that most writing systems have two parallel sets of letters that can be used to distinguish between upper- and lowercase. That hypothetically could than be divided in two separate "Half-A-Bets"(oopz, lol). One one for upper- and a second for lowercase. Allowing two Fontstructors to each choose their own designated section within that specific language. But enthusiasm quickly reached critical mass, making a mild gesture go ballistic and somehow sketched this crazy wild idea of having multiple participating parties that each reserved one-half of a language within one of the several designated ranges for the Basic Multilingual Planes (preferably within their native writing system if possible), and in turns to each have them supply the glyph set for their section.
Oh, and "Sweet mother of a blind gekko", boy what was I wrong, as eventually only one Die-Hard going by the name Dmitriy hooked up with the project in the end.
So hereby I proudly present the results of this combined forces:
"Gesamtkunstwerk" — A Futuristic sci-fi stencil sans
The philosophy behind the FontStruction was to publish the completed font with open font license (so that it is clonable). Feel free to redistribute/share, clone, learn or even refurbish mash-up and re-publish your version.
— [The original collaborative project is now closed for any new participating parties, sorry!]
Some small things still need additional work, such as kerning (which is incomplete and remains a WIP for now), Cyriillic script still missing uppercase set. All of this is scheduled to be included soon, so stay tuned..
hope y'all simply enjoy it so far nonetheless!

update 3.0: improved the font, more alternates and kerning
My take on a sci-fi font.
ALIEN WORMHOLE (BOLD) - Monolinear Sci-Fi-inspired 'worm' typeface.
This is a 'Bold' style version to the "ALIEN WORMHOLE" type family.
This version has a ton of extra character compared to the 'Light' version.
For now only the two 'Basic Latin' sets, some symbols and a small number of puctuation marks match. And it remains to be seen if I can translate back to the Light version all those extra's that were put into this Bold version.
I mentioned 'type family' earlier, but in reality there isn't a whole lot of family just yet. Since the two for now hardly correlate truly.
Here is a link to the 'Light' version
Stay tuned for future updates.
ALIEN WORMHOLE - Monolinear Sci-Fi-inspired 'worm' typeface.
Most well known worm-type design probably is NASA's retired 'worm' logo (used from 1975 till 1992).
A sophisticated modernist rendering of the letters (N-A-S-A), done in a bold style letterform.
That being said, I should mention that this FontStruction wasn't "inspired by" or "based on" the original NASA logo though.
[About this font:]
Small grid attempt at making sort of a experimental futuristic 'worm'-type design.
The letterforms for the most part are build from simplified basic geometry (rectangles/circular) except for a small number of symbols and punctuation that have diagonals.
It's experimental appearance is defined by the strikingly quirky counters that are awkwardly jutting out of the stems. To further boost it's awkwardness the letterforms have irregular width.
There is a full set of uppercase and partial lowercase glyph alternatives located in "Half Width Full Width" Unicode block to add slight stylistic variations.
I hope you like it,
Here is a link to the 'Bold' version
Dopaminest is a Stencil font which is a alphabetical order in a few, Don’t trust the CCANSA. Because I’ve making more fonts as possibly usual. From our Science fiction and Sci-Fi. What a little bit tricky huh?
Futuristic + Insular
This is the font used in the background of the film "Prospect 2018." It is now my favorite movie, so I decided to get the font into a usable format. This is accurate to the writer's notes, which I found in an interview of them. This set includes both lowercase and uppercase, as well as several numbers (not all of them were legible). It should also be noted, that in some in-movie examples, there are minor discrepencies, as well as mispellings. You may find many examples in the promotional magazine that was put out, which can be read here:
Good luck in the Green, and happy prospecting!
Sci-fi typefaces can be so smooth and simple. While that certainly has a place, why not take it the other way? FunkTachyon is based on a more retro, old school, funky style, designed to resemble flashing signs found on popular strips. It's best used for flashy messages that brim with energy.This is a clone
A sci-fi typeface with dominant serifs, ideas came from several different video games. It is all uppercase, intended for titles and headings.
Unicase font inspired by Block02, the only FS published by the interesting Mexican type designer Manolo Guerrero from BlueTypo. I've put some "soft" alternatives -a, e, f, i, m, n, q, w- in the lowercase (I've taken also more creative freedom than the original font, which used a limited set of bricks). Enjoy.
another display logotype. this one is a recreation of the logotype used in the logo for "Triakis" from WipEout.
also, out of curiousity, I am asking fellow fontstructors to leave a comment saying how much time they spend designing typefaces. I feel like I'm cranking these out and should probably spend more time fine-tuning.
also want to thank everyone for their constructive comments & compliments. it is very encouraging to see such talented designers leaving nice comments.
while this was made for a logo, it is much more experimental and sci-fi than the others. it feels like an evolution of my previous font "pearl."
inspired by the logo for auricom from the wipeout games. used for a company logo. also my first time messing around with the connect bricks. not too ambitious, but makes for good displays and still interesting i think.
this font was created for the logo of my discord server, "DOLPHIN." it was actually my first fontstruction, but has undergone some revisions and is now being released publically. it is heavily inspired by the font "FUTU" by emil bertell.
