The current month seems to hold a meaning of threads: of fog, dew covered spiders' webs, barely-there things, feint perceptions defying scientific understanding and fine links with ancestors, to keep us in the present and enable open minds and caring souls to better the future. This abstract interpretation of Halloween has been designed to echo the traditionally mysterious mood to show the past (known glyphs, earlier FS bricks) linked in the present (on paper, in the FS previews, and using some of Meek's newest bricks I experiment with in this design) to create future (text will carry meaning to the reader, diversity of thought not experienced until after every glyph is finished, and beauty of text flow is visible only after it has been written). Totally within my personal plan for Night Pegasus' work: adventurous, alternative, divergent, different, exploring, experimental, unusual -- after all, the flying horse is free to visit any time any item or existence in this universe and any place in Fontstruct, to discover and weigh possibilities, to create its future from the past in it's present body and mind, and it does this cloaked in black as deepest night, undiscovered unless someone has their feelers tuned into mystery and taps into experiences of presence.
:.:.:.: Information to help you when using this font :.:.:.:
If a LC glyph follows a UC glyph: you need to use the space bar 6X to get the correct letter space (it will then match the natural spacing between LC); using only LC glyphs (or only UC glyphs) will give satisfactory text results as letter space is set by the programming. But you'll need to manually add the word space you want: between UC (or LC) words a minimum of 3 space taps for a just visible gap, use the space bar 6x for good spacing. Experiment!
Note: the full stop and comma have a line on the baseline to link with UC. There might be no need for a 'space' after those two marks even on LC? The apostrophy has a short line to link it to previous/following UC glyphs (note those link lines retain the meaning of the glyph when used with LC glyphs or an LC following an UC glyph).
SPACE BAR = a 1px space; tap 3x to get a small word space that's obvious
% key = a set of reasonably wide lines to match upper case verticals
_underscore = a space consisting of a long single line on base line only
I'm trying to figure out some diacritics befor the 31st so this remains WIP
The most friendly and rounded 5x5 pixel design I can make! It gives me a "The Simpsons" feeling - the sort of font I'd expect to see in a well-made Simpsons game.
"Sage Rigour" = "Gregarious".
A rounded square design made for headlines as an alternative/companion font to Empty Magazine.
I recently saw a type face with bits missing and thought "Looks interesting, can I do something with this idea?". I used one of my older sans designs but soon discovered that I needed serifs to get logic to the gaps ;) So I started work on a good serif design to use as the base. Here is my interpretation of what I saw, it looks rather different from the one that inspired me.
