Made by request for an associate. "RADD" stands for "Research And Development Division".
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 on the side of the Sheepslayer Mk.2, a flying dragon car piloted by Lyll "Hatch" Soretti in my game Seven Candles.
A semibold Gongclonker made to the same specs as the original - 5x5 with no wasted matrix.This is a clone of Gongclonker
A decolike boldtype. Based on a design from my game "Seven Candles", particularly the text used on documents and signs at the Lower Netazecan Embassy. The "hallmark" of this design is a sudden increase in line width midline, best seen on glyphs like EFLTZ3<>^.
"Embassy L" is a play on "Imbecile".
This design was previously known in other works as "Frenchfry" because Razma's (one of my AI) image recognition classified several letterforms as french fries.
An attempt at an angular, futuristic Fraktur design. It's also inspired by ancient Greek stonecarvings, or at least, the way such carvings are depicted in comics and cartoons. It has a lot of intentional asymmetry to make it look quirky and slightly comical. (I tried making everything symmetrical with composites, but it looked boring!)
I welcome any suggestions for this one. I've never tried to make a "normal" Fraktur, only avantgarde ones, so I'm not very knowledgeable about the style.
Another attempt at alien Latin. It's made to have an organic, almost writhing look, but also to be easily written with a brush or spray paint.
A doodle made with Brick Basket.
This has many uses! It works as a pixel font or a high-res one, and can generate a surprising range of visual effects.

A design inspired by school uniforms, sports team jerseys, etc.
UC cloned to LC to make this easier to use...
For my 300th Fontstruction, a more open and airy deco style than those I usually make. It has a strong sense of the "negative space has been sliced out" look about it which I tend toward in an art deco design.
Even though this is legible at a small size, I consider it a display font since many of its details are subtle. In retrospect I think this looks slightly Broadway-ish... but, this was just my attempt at a 5x5 deco.
"Gongclonker" is my nickname because I am a gong player.
A gnarled, pointy design which fits into many historical periods and aesthetics. It makes me think of Wild West woodtype and gargoyles.
Neon-style lettering in 5x5. I tried to keep the considerations of neon tubes in mind. Most forms are simple and several of them get repurposed for other glyphs. Further, the bends which would occur in actual neon tubing were taken into account while routing each glyph.
A closer look will find some advanced glyphs which would have to be produced by a master glassblower in order to work as neon fixtures (such as DHJKXOQ08*#+).
This is spaced like a pixel font so that it can be used as one. Fonts which work especially well in both pixel and high-res mediums can be considered Hybrids.
"Lightened Son" is an anagram for "Neon Delights".
Idea for Improvement: A wiring solution - some system designed to be on a layer behind the letters so that they look convincingly wired up.

"A futuristic attempt at 'insular' English. The main design rule was 'make it bend where it shouldn't'. This could symbolize some cyber-dystopia-lord-dude's desire to stop at nothing, or something."
This design inserts a dot into every empty grid square. Off-grid empty squares don't count - there must be an utterly empty space of 1 square's size ON the grid. The dotting further imparts a unique identity to every letter.
Shall I continue this one? Let me know. :DThis is a clone of Technokratz
A futuristic attempt at "insular" English. The main design rule was "make it bend where it shouldn't". This could symbolize some cyber-dystopia-lord-dude's desire to stop at nothing, or something.
X marks the spots! It's friendly-looking, despite being built from things usually used as cautionary symbols. This is a property which I also perceive in many of the sprites and setpieces of the "Metal Slug" video game. Hmm... maybe I should Fontstruct some actual Metal Slug fonts!
This works as a pixel font, but only at 2x the original size or more because of the close spacing. Smaller sizes will create distortion unless you modify the spacing in-software.
Another conlang/conscript from my own works. These are the Symbols of Starborn Lightness used by Asgari.
Asgari is an artificial sun orbiting Gara, an interstellar planet. It was built to use Starborn Lightness symbols as concept-units in order to electronically convey information to the Garai people about itself. So, these symbols were originally something like status indicators. Until C.Y. 1997, they could be seen on displays in the Celestial Telemetry Room at Magong Stack One in Upper Netazeca.
However, some Garai re-used the symbols to make constructed languages and ciphers. Monsaic Sun is unique among these in that it uses only the existing symbols, without any alteration. So this font can be used to write either language.
Appears in: Seven Candles Trilogy (2013)
Been a while since I did any regular polygonal designs, so here's my go at octagons.
This one was on my backburner list... expect more glyphs soon.
Designed to have a look which is slightly swept and slightly chiseled. The name is inspired by Dyna Blade, a giant bird from the game "Kirby Super Star".
Recommended: Use with kerning ON
With Dynatype Z I tried to take the exotic aspects further without changing the core design too much. The lowercase got some alternates, too!This is a clone of Coquette Dynatype
A font made for sci-fi board game design use. The slanted terminals slightly remind me of the logo for the original Starcraft, thus the name.
I made a circuitry-esque look, then started embellishing it.
I'm not sure why but I now get a strong "medical" feeling from this one, as if this font were used for the display on some sort of futuristic surgeon robot.
A font I designed for the animation series, "The Boris Barkov Show". This is made to look blocky and industrial, but still fairly modern. It's mostly built on a 5x5 grid, and is perfectly useable as a pixel font, but is meant for high-res applications.
The show's titlecards only use this font in uppercase. But, I designed a lowercase for the sake of accessibility.
The show is about a stereotypically Russian, mustachioed, ushanka-wearing pug named Boris Barkov. Apart from speaking both English and Russian, he's able to play the video game "Escape From Tarkov", wield a sword and rifle, and carry and throw objects despite his lack of opposable thumbs. His nemesis is PugB (the Americanized "Rambo" pug) and he's rumored to have shady dealings with Sam Yippington, the Latvian Dachsund arms dealer...
Continuing on the theme of choosing a regular shape and making an alphabet out of it.
Looks best at smaller sizes (<24pt) and with antialiasing/ClearType turned on.
Can this be done better with filters? Probably, but I still have to learn those... :D
An attempt to make low-resolution, circled letters without the use of filters. Reminds me of branding irons or stencils. The name is based on a friend's joke about lost marbles. :^)
There are no © or ® glyphs. I wonder why that is?
TIP: This one looks best at smaller sizes (24pt or less) and with antialiasing/ClearType turned on!
