I decided to be laynecom for a day, and this is the result. Didn't have time for numbers and punctuation though, unfortunately...
Some alternates available in Extended Latin A. Suggestions and critiques encouraged, as always. Thanks and enjoy!
Small and sassy. Circle bricks used for lc. Uc is more or less alternates - an evolution - of the lc. Final comp entry. It's always fun!!!This is a clone
I named this kind of randomly, but really like the name and think its fits - not for an obvious reason. It seems FS comps always bring out the creativity in the community. I may be like many regarding FS about the amount of time available to devote to the art and craft of FS design, especially even more during the holiday season. So what does Mr Meek do? Well, I am coining the term 'Gridlock' to mean the inability to use FS even though you want to - akin to writer's block or as FSer cam be 'gridlocked' while working on a font...for whatever reason. Blah, blah. Anyway, it always seems these comps have the insane ability to utterly destroy 'Gridlock' and get things moving again. God bless, Mr Meek.This is a clone
This one-eyed character set places one circle-serif to start or end strokes somewhere on each glyph (except "O") in the set...hence it's name. Angled serifs acting as hands or feeet (or tails?) are used elsewhere. This is derived from the base font (lc) I used for previous efforts. I made it tall and then thought Cyclops (for SerifComp) to use now since I never released it (full disclosure). Anyway, a different view of what serif can be :)This is a clone
G1 Radia. A scaled down version of an originally larger fontstruction. Lots of details with smooth micro bullnose serifs, high contrast stroke lines, and decorative ball terminals.This is a clone
G1 Obsidian Black. Created around 2009 and incomplete due to brick limitations, now updated with new bricks as originally envisioned.
G1 Valora. Extreme serif titling caps. Maxing out 48 brick height for Serifcomp. Not enough room for lowercase. Not enough time for more characters.This is a clone
elza: serif meets ball terminal... I found out the Germans actually have a word for this: 'Tropfenserife', which roughly translates as 'teardrop-serif'. Normally appearing at the end of strokes in letters such as a,c,f,g,j and r, I have tried to build this font around it, using it as its main design feature.
More of an experiment than an attempt at an amazing typeface, but I thought it'd be a fun entry nonetheless. Don't let the creation date fool you: I started this design in early 2014. There were many issues that had to be remedied before publishing, most notably the lack of characters and major discrepancies between the shapes of serifs (some were entirely triangular, others entirely curved). It's still heavily a work in progress. Suggestions are encouraged, especially for the Q and punctuation. Thanks and enjoy!This is a clone
(This font is dedicated to my dear friend Miguel and his wife María. Miguel just died on 26/may/2012. ¡Nunca te olvidaremos, compañero!)
Work in progress (kerning and more glyphs to come).
This is a new 6x6 pixel font with slab serifs on the upper-case letters with the exception of the letter"O", and half slab drop serifs on the lower-case letters again with exception of the letter "o". The numerals, except the zero, all have half slab serifs. All punctuations are without serifs.
Each letter is contained within its own box with upper-case boxes being deeper than lower-case letters, numerals and punctuations.
As you will notice I have used the new white bricks for the glyphs but stayed with the standard black bricks for the boxes. The white bricks are easily read by scanners which means they will have a great future in producing apparently blank bar-codes for useless pricing systems which are meaningless to consumers. White brick fonts are being looked at favourably by oriental, and other, manufacturers who see a great future in their use in cost saving printing of undecipherable assembly instructions.

If you like this, make sure to favorite it... It will help.
My first entry for Serifcomp. Originally created in 2013, when I still had little knowledge about the finer details of type design. I've made major changes to the original design while trying not to lose its original feel (avoiding diagonal strokes, for example). I ended up making major changes to M, Q, T, W, f, k, m, q, r, t, and w, and minor changes to a bunch more; a ton of kerning was also required. It's not very polished yet, but it's a start...
