Welcome to the Future...
Dramatics aside, QUANTUM is a visual display typeface designed to convey one cyberpunk future out of many.
It is intended to be built as a monospaced font (however, spacing errors occurred, and it is a faux-monospace as a result), made on a 9x10 pixel grid out of a personal fascination with the vision of the cyberpunk future according to the 90s and a desire to capture the "spirit" of the original Sony PlayStation. One of the leading sources of inspiration is the work by The Designers Republic (tDR).
This typeface not only features Latin characters, but also Cyrillic, Greek, and even a few Coptic characters for good measure (in hopes of easing in the old world into the future)
Inspired by a logo I designed for a friend of mine a couple months back!
Alternative versions are coming soon, so hold on tight. ;)This is a clone
Completed an old piece that I had laying around for a while! The style may be influenced by the work of others, but I couldn't just not finish this.
At the end of October I decided to dive into the new Bricks 'Connect'. I started with the lowercase 's' & 'a'. Working out what the minimal size I could fontstruct it in, then expanded and condensed it from there to accomadate the rest of the glyths. You can still see these in the font above (Just before the Latin charachters. As I progressed I came to love the thin white gaps, and then tried to have every glyth with some element of the curved white gap in it. Some were more successful than others. As you can see, I have included the less preferred options at the end. I've also designed some of the final glyphs in illustrator, as it was impossible to have all of them with one white line, without help from an external app.
The most difficult glyphs to create and ultimately the most satisfying once completed were the 'V' and '~'.
I liked the look of final font so much, that I decided to create a whole family. Cableguynium 0 (which has Zero cables), CableGuynium 2 (which has 1-2 cables per glyth), and CableGuynium 3 (Which has 3-4 cables).
Unusually I struggled naming this font, I have early versions saved called Flowonica, Rubber Tyre, Ice Skater and Fibropticon, ..... eventually settling on CableGuynium as it was the most memorable.
ANY CRITICISM, GOOD OR BAD IS WELCOMED.
WIP! - A new experiment into handwriting fonts.
I was inspired to do a handwriting script font of my own after I saw the recently submitted couple here at fontstruct by ecluniverso. This member's work is very good and unique, check it out here: https://fontstruct.com/fontstructors/1376510/ecluniverso
The design concept for my font is handwriting with a broad-tip permanent marker.
I completed the LC string and numerals, plus some punctuations so far. UC (hopefully) coming soon.
Extrapolation of the lettering found on a 1976 calender by Wim Crouwel.
I know this has already been done before, here is one that was done by Wilson Thomas. Who did a far more extensivey version that also includes extended Latin. Check his version out here: https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/795855/kalendar_1976
Apart from a couple of glyphs that were done notably different and some other tiny differences in detais the two are pretty similar, but most certainly not copied.
Extrapolation of the lettering found on a Dutch renovation brochure. I have no clue if it is a existing font or not. I only used the letters from the brochure as guide and did zero research on it's origin.
Updated pro version for my previous font STOUTE VRIEDJES.
* Full support for both upper & lowercase characters.
* Optimized for more legible display at small point size.
* Overall ballance now much more consistent.
* Lowered the font's weight to make it look slightly less bold.
* Stroke width for all horizontals decreased by a small amount. In addition to this I also slightly increased the size of all the counters. This way giving the font a more open feel.
* As last in a attempt to overall make it look more aesthetically appealing various small changes have been made to the letterform approach & other specific small details as well.
Enjoy!This is a clone of STF_STOUTE VRIENDJES
This font i created is based on the theme word Ambitious. I traced back to the 1980s and took inspiration from there. These are considered the years of individual aspiration and cultural diversity. People were more ambitious, expressive and they were creating their own identities and attitudes. So i wanted to create a font that looks bold and energetic to represent that ambitious attitude.
Confidento is a typeface based and styled on the word Confident, aiming to produce a type which uses features that are strong and bold. One of the main characteristics I have aimed to encorporate throughout this process is the use of a balanced type design, enabling the design to not become too heavy. I achieved this through the means of having large variation in width across different aspects of the text.
This font originates from the adjective 'Energetic'. It's stable centre and shakey outer layer represents the effect of consuming copious amounts of energy stimulating substances, usually resulting in a case of Caffeine Jitters.
A second typeface inspired by the theme 'systematic', developed through finding hidden shapes within geometric architecture and using them as building blocks for the letterforms, this time blacked out to create a bolder more imposing style. Sister font to - STACKEDThis is a clone of STACKED
This a typeface designed to echo the shapes and patterns found across manholes which cover our network of systems across the UK. Manhole covers have been beautifully decorated with patterns but also act as indicators and safety features. Both patterns and the shaping of letterforms are inspired by manhole covers I have found. Designed to be a display typeface at large scales!
At first I started to struct the lettering seen on the book cover of:
"Tot elkaar veroordeeld 'De Nederlands-Duitse economische betrekking' (tussen 1945-1957)"by Martijn Lak.
But doing a little more research it turned out to be the 1988 geometric typeface "Senator" originally designed by Zuzana Licko.
I took the liberty of making sort of a replica.
I made a couple of small changes here and there trying to improve its overall look.
This font was designed around the theme word Elegant. I was inspired to create a typeface that was ornate and palatial; it is a ode to Baroque design.
I have tried to emulate columns for the body of the font and created a crowned frieze for some of the letters with decorative toppers for the remaining characters.
Based on the lettering seen on a Dutch poster from 1922 Which I think was originally designed by Dutch designer Bart van der Leck.
