Experimental sliced sans serif. My goal here was to make a design which would result in an extremely compact and durable physical stencil. If any readers end up constructing this stencil, I'd love to see it! I don't own any CNC tech myself...
1.3 - added More Latin and Google Fonts Basic bands.
1.2 - added uppercase, changed name to "Aegris Stencil".
1.1 - edited for more readability at small size. Glyphs with enclosed loops were altered so that the "movement" of the segments always runs clockwise.
1.0 - released.
At the end of October I decided to dive into the Bricks 'Connect'. I started with the lowercase 's' & 'a'. Working out the minimal size I could fontstruct it, then expanded and tweak 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 it so much I decided to create a whole family. Cableguynium 0 (which has no 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.
This started out as something diamondy and piratey, then turned a bit gothy before finally becoming a bit tridenty or perhaps even braziery. Ya feel me? I'm comin' atcha LIVE from this font description box.
This works best as a display font for short phrases. The name comes from the story by George G. Toudouze. If you went to public school in the USA, you've likely read the story.
A font made for a friend's board game!
This gives me a strong "film credits" feeling with its high impact and simple geometry.
A "Connect bricks" font.
It's called linestrider because the outline strides across the inline on both sides. It also reminds me of the courses that are drawn for line-following robots.
Inspired by raster scanning & horizontal synchronization for image & video display.
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.
70's Art Deco style Streamline typeface.
Most of the design credits for this font should go to Isaiah Garcia since I took the liberty of revisiting his fontstruction FS Idea https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/816176/fs_idea
Please check out this member's awesome contributions here: https://fontstruct.com/fontstructors/559832/isaiah_garcia
There is one major design difference between the two works though, Isaiah's version was made using a faux bezier approach (very labour intensive) and requires a fairly large design grid, whereas my version was made using a mix of macaroni bricks and resized composites of these, and was done on just a 4x7 grid using 2:2 filter.
This different approach led to a number of small changes in the overal design result. Also did I change some glyphs slightly to my personal preference. But it remains very much Isaiah's design.
Another less important difference is that I used some of the lowercase string for alternative glyphs allow a number of stylistic variations!
American frontier and western inspired display type.
Still needs a little bit of tweaking here and there. Also for some reason leading is not what it supose to be, it runs short a bit. But this is far from problematic.
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
Font "leaves" are built on the basis of a natural motif - a leaf. Strokes are formed from dark and light leaves
52 characters for the basic Latin set, 10 numerals, 36 punctuation characters, 66 characters for the Russian language set
Please let me know what do you think :)
Trying this style out. The name comes from a monster in the game NetHack.
Sort of a revival of the geometric letters seen on a 1916 Dutch litho to paper poster for Wm H. Müller & Co.'s Batavier-lijn passenger service Rotterdam-London. The Batavier Line was the oldest steam shipping line in the Netherlands. The line existed from 1830-1960.
The litho design was originally done by Bart van der Leck (1876 - 1958).
The fontstruction is a Faux Bezier approach, so the design grid was huge. Making it a lot of work and hard to ballance with the editors kerning feature.
I made a couple of small changes as compared to the original, most significant is the upscaled Ampersand.
I completed the alphabet plus numerals and some punctuations.
There are still a small number of spacing issues that needs to be solved.
More characters will follow soon.
Typeface design based on a typographic poster that is celebrating Wim Crouwel, and was designed by Matthew Lew.
Sort of revival of the retro sci-fi letters used by the Atlantic Toy Company for their "Galaxy Serie". A science fiction themed toy line that was manifactured from 1978 to the early 1980s.
I had to make a couple of compromises on some glyphs due to FS limitations, so the fontstruction isn't 100% accurate, but i'd say still very recognizable.
Based on the theme of 'Systematic'. My research led me into compulsions which in turn became developing my own system where I surrendered control and randomly generated a variant of a Triangle, an angle to rotate it to and then a cell it would go into. This would then be removed to create the final letterform. Designed to be a display typeface.
