This is my first typeface made in Fontstruct and it is a part of my degree. The theme of the project is “Rebirth”. With this Fontstruction I am trying to revamp some of the typefaces being used for headlines and drop caps in books or newspaper. I am aiming for a more boxy and modern look, by some separations in the structure of the letters. My main inspiration came from sci-fi books and encyclopedias.
Friends, I'm asking for help! Which "R" do you prefer? The one with the straight, or curved leg? I'm split, because personally I much prefer the straight leg, but curved seems more consistent with the rest.
The term "sidereal" (/saɪˈdɪəriəl/) refers to a measurement of time based on the position of stars.
Industrial, geometric, display, extended, modern, uniform weight. Based on a 2-brick tall grid. Inspired by Microgramma/Eurostile and the Terminator logotype.
"Prototype" means that this is not the final verison. In this case, FontStruct has been used as a fantastic preliminary design tool. But due to its limitations, the font will have to be reworked. Not by much - only the ⅝ roundings will be made circular in a traditional font editor, I'll be introducing optical improvements, and real kerning will also be implemented.
FontStruct's kerning tool is extremely rudimentary (understandable), and honestly, because of that, I left the kerning in a really messy state, it's kind of beyond repair at this point, as I don't really know what's what anymore. Oh, and also - due to limitations of the nudge tool, the ampersant (&) is offset to the right by half a brick, I tried to fix it with kerning as well, and it kinda works, but that will be fixed in the final version, outside FontStruct.This is a clone
This font corresponds to an extended Latin font. Each character is loosley based on what sound it represents. Each letter comprises of a vertical stem with additions at the top, middle, and bottom, before or after the stem, depending on the use of lips, tongue, breath, and voice.
The numerical system is based on a horizontal bar. The marks on the bar behave like a 4-bit binary system to represent 0-9.
The punctuation is based on the character that represents the period.
NO CAPS REQUIRED. Letters "a-w" is from the 1984 version of the show, while "x-z" is from the 2009 version of the show, as well as the numbers. The "y", however is slightly altered, because it was identical to the '84 version of the alphabet. The capital "V" makes the Visitor's insignia.
