Experimental 25-segment display... or maybe a new mineral species?
This one achieves a new visual effect at almost every size up to the original. Also try slowly moving the zoom slider for some interesting animations!
Experimental 24-segment display. 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.
"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 much further about it... :D
1. Segments can have interior length/height 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 fusion of art deco- and Navajo-style design.
Looks better at larger sizes, though with the right antialiasing and spacing it can be made to look good at any legible size.
Got any ideas for a better name?
A small, Italic RC Family design. Makes me think of racing banners and advertisements.
Another of my many doodles. Fun to make!
A 3x3 design with leaf-shaped glyphs.
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.
Argh, I wish I never started this, It was terrible amounts of meticulous work and I wonder if ill ever addthe lowercase letters to this type!!
172 x 74 units
0.5 x 0.5 grid scale (and still no full glyph fits on screen)
I built diamonds sized according to the Fibonacci series, then made a design out of them. The design was then carved away and modified to make the glyphs you see here. I used the members 1, 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' outlines look slightly Celtic.
It makes me think of beach sand and things found on the beach - shells, pretty rocks, and so on.
This font is not to be confused with "Diamondized". :D
For my 300th Fontstruction, a more open and airy deco style than those I usually make. :^)
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.
I'll add more to this if there is interest!
A fat deco. :^)
Definitely a display font since the thin lines disappear at small sizes...
I'll add to this if there is interest!
A gnarled, pointy design which fits into many historical periods and aesthetics. It makes me think of Wild West woodtype and gargoyles.
Legible modernist typeface with a simplistic bold but clean geometric design that was influenced by Bauhaus typography.
A fat groovy type design with filled counters.
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.

10x10 fantasy- and RPG-related icons. The bigger they are, the better they look!
The first eight (A-H) were made for a friend's request. Now I'm adding more on my own. :^)
Since I have encountered quite a few bugs while making these, each glyph is now tested for clarity at every size. A few had to be altered in order to comply.
Got an idea or request for a new item? Let me know and I'll add it. I am trying to add an item for every "character class" I can think of before I move on to start adding second items for them. This helps keep the assortment diverse.

Squareish halftone patterns on a square grid.
(Use "_" for the blank grid.)
Spartan Block is a simple blocky font. Design goals in creation were to build most glyphs by subtracting the least amount of black to reveal the intended symbol while also retaining asymetry in each form.
A remastered version of Amanuensis by Riccard0.
I made uppercase non-decorative, fixed some width issues with lowercase, modified m, w, made alternates for g, y, d, almost finished the numerals, added some European characters, alt. eszett, more ligatures.This is a clone
Thin (multi-) stroked art deco type design.
The name derived from the fact that it is a thin stroked art deco design with little to no fancy decorative features, other than its multi-line segments. Hence the name "ART ECO"
The fontstruct preview making some diagonal strokes look slightly thicker than the horizontal and vertical ones due to it's behaviour on brick stacking. Which isn't in the TTF font itself.
Uppercase characters only
A design inspired by four-leaf clovers and rotational symmetry.

A clone of a previous fontstruction I did, which was a recap of one of the alphabets originally desiged by Jurriaan Schrofer.
- For this update I decided to extend the latin table.
(the project remains under fontstruction, and I'll try to make it as complete as possible over time)
Also I'm gonna keep it open license so it remains cloneable!!
Feel free to use and abuse
For now enjoy!
CheersThis is a clone of STF_SANS ROUNDED
Just a font doodle. :D
Perhaps I'll embellish them further with charms/baubles hanging from the bottom of each?
Making these look like glowing lanterns should be easy! Just create some yellow or orange behind them, blur it, and set its layer blending mode to Additive or Screen.
Want to see a magic trick? This font quickly loses readability when it is shrunk or enlarged from its original size! It's like an anti-font, judging you for wanting to use it.
I think this makes excellent placeholder text at small sizes, though to the uninitiated it might just look like blurry Braille.This is a clone of CelLCD
