By request, a "junk font". Looks pointy, glitchy, fuzzy, janky, grungy, burned, rusty, distressed by power tools, or some superposition of ONE OF THESE OR MORE, depending on the size used and the rendering effects (antialiasing, smoothing, etc).
Rather than force the letters into convincing classical forms, I focused on making sure each letter was thoroughly scrambled. This design could in theory be used with an image-recognition script in order to be put to cryptographic uses... the result would be fun, but not very efficient or crackproof. UC is the same as LC, at least for now.
The original brick-of-bricks is located on ".". This is the template from which the other glyphs were made.
1. Up to 25 distinct bricks from the palette may be used in the overall construction.
2. Each glyph will incorporate a heterogeneous mix of these bricks.
3. Bricks may not be flipped, rotated, stacked or composited.
An alternate take of Diamond Eyes with circles replacing the 2 smallest diamonds. No brickswapping used - many diamonds shared bricks so I had to place the circles by hand. This permutation introduces more texture, solidity, and complexity to the original. Hope ya like it!This is a clone of Diamond Eyes
BEST WISHES TO ALL OF THE FONTSTRUCT COMMUNITY,
HAVE A PROSPEROUS 2019!!
A simple geometric tile mosaïc design, and has only a very limited character set.
By request, a "waffle stencil".
This is an E6x6 broken into nine 2x2 fields. The larger and the more precisely cut it is, the more readable it becomes!
Typeface design based on a typographic poster that is celebrating Wim Crouwel, and was designed by Matthew Lew.
Art Deco tile mosaic lettering design and background tile patterns.
It's designed to craft layers of typographic mosaics. It can create very subtle clear display text combinations when only layering text with just one or two backgrounds max. This will result in nice retro-ish mosaic typography. But beware, combining two or more background patters with for example different blending modes on each layer, this seemingly peaceful boy becomes capable of recreating the big bang!
All patterns are located in the Unicode block for Block Elements!
You know what, lets make this one clonable for everyone.
A stencil design in which diagonal cuts are used to imply angles and curves. It does not quite obey the rules of a segmented display, but it tries its best!
This is inspired by some text I put on the side of the Sheepslayer Mk.2, a flying dragon car piloted by Lyll "Hatch" Soretti in my game Seven Candles.
The first of a kind - an experimental font made with the new pizza slice brick. :D
Somehow it makes me think of jukeboxes, particularly letters like "A" and "O" which have the same sort of "mosaic lighting" look which many jukeboxes have.
No filters, just nudging!
Experimental cyberpunk robot mosaic thing.
It gives me a strong "system font" feeling and seems like something that might be included with the OS of some futuristic tech deck. If the Fairlight Excalibur from Shadowrun Returns had its own font, this could be it!
Original size: 21pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
Experimental 25-segment display with some interesting geometry. :D
Zapotec-style mosaic/segmented display. :D
(Use _ for the full design.)
Some puzzling boxes, indeed! These are named for Lemarchand, maker of the puzzle box which appeared in the movie series "Hellraiser".
This design has a variety of textures and optical illusions up its sleeve. See the sample for a few of them.
Original size: 47pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Pixelated demake of Nirvanite Fossil. It introduces more size variation than its predecessors, and proves even harder to read. The size variation was necessary to prevent these sprites from being too large and to make them more unique from the glyphs in Nirvanite Fossil.
Original size: 25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A font which looks like a board game. It has no relation to Conway's Game of Life, although that may change. :D
Alternate take on Nirvanite, this time with bullseyes rather than solid circles as the large segments.
This one is a lot more organic than its predecessor, but also a lot more confusing. Looks like clusters of alien tadpole eggs to me!This is a clone of Nirvanite
Experimental mosaic... or maybe a new mineral species?
This one started as a doodle. I began placing circles to see what kinds of complex shapes I could make, and this was the result.
It achieves a new visual effect at almost every size up to the original. Also try slowly moving the zoom slider for some interesting animations!
This font is now nearly 1MB in size! I guess it has to do with the intrinsic complexity of circles.
Experimental 24-segment display or massive monochrome Mondrian matrix. Pixel compatible!
The thinking behind this one was that with incongruously sized segments arranged in the proper way, I would create a design which was effectively 5x5, but which accomodated more glyphs than 5x5 usually does. Negative space is incorporated into the structure of many glyphs, though not enough to classify this as an IVO design.
"Qualtron" is the name of an imaginary entity that a friend believed in - a being meant to represent the result of "a mathematical equation that can rule the universe". I didn't inquire further about it... :D
1. Segments can have interior length/width of 2 or 5.
2. The central 2x2 square must always remain open.
3. Square bricks and 90-degree angles only.
Original size: 20.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A pixel font disguised as a high-resolution one. It's a pretty effective disguise thanks to the gaps between bricks.
I was making some new bricks to add to Brick Basket when the idea of a segmented display made from composites occurred to me. The result is this experimental 25-segment display.
This achieves some interesting "double line"/"folded line" effects. It also gets some pecuilar distortions at smaller sizes.
I built diamonds sized according to the Fibonacci series, then made a segmented display out of them. The design was then carved away and modified to make the glyphs you see here. I used the members 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8. These sizes proved most feasible to work with in this sort of arrangement.
I gave the terminals a flared appearance which I think makes the glyphs look slightly Celtic. The design also makes me think of beach sand and things found on the beach - shells, pretty rocks, and so on.
Over time, this design has fairly well solidified itself as my favorite. I don't get to use it much, though!
Made via subtractive methods.
Halftone patterns on a square grid. Gives me a "crime lab" feeling for some reason. Maybe it's the resemblance to frosted glass...
A 117-segment display made to have a more "mosaic" look. Try using this one at odd sizes, especially with antialiasing off! The resulting distortions occur in a consistent way which leads to many new uses for the font.
Original size: 38pt
An experimental 25-segment display. This one is also made to produce various optical effects at different sizes.
Experimental 49-segment display.
In making and studying other segmented displays, I noticed they tended to have strong-looking right angled lines but weak-looking diagonals. This is my attempt to make a design where both styles of lines look more appealing and join together more solidly.
Home blends contemporary sans-serif characters, created using negative space, with ornate mosaic patterns to form a decorative display font in the style of kitchen tiles. Each character is unique - set against four identical patterned tiles. This typeface is very versatile and functional insofar as that it has the potential to be used in a variety of diverse settings such as magazine article headings, pottery and ceramic prints, wall-hangings and shop signage.
