DON’T THINK THAT I’M SHOUTING ABOUT THIS. I JUST DON’T LIKE LOWER-CASE LETTERS!This is a clone of Some fonts you just can’t FontStruct
My final entry in the competition. Inspired by Mazey, zlabyrinths eYe/FS, and wavelength. Each glyph has its own maze, and each maze connects with the next. Tilde ~ and low line _ connect words, grave ` closes beginnings and ends, and the left and right arrows < > are for the start and end. There are also some alternates in Extended Latin A. Suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks!
04/06/14 The whole font has been updated to be one brick taller, and thus properly fit onto a grid. Also, some characters have been redesigned. V2.0
05/13/14 All punctuation has been modified to continue a word maze. V2.1
07/05/14 1000 downloads! Hooray! As a 'thank you', I've completed more of More Latin. V2.2
08/22/14 I've made the accents part of the maze. I've also changed a few characters, and added Œ and œ. V2.3
08/04/15 Added Polish support with Ą, Ć, Ę, Ł, Ń, Ś, Ź, and Ż. Tweaked a few characters as well, and added a crossbar to the ð. V2.4
06/18/16 Added support for multiple languages with more Cyrillic chars and punctuation. Also tweaked a few chars.
An outline version of Blueback, with slightly different proportions, x-height: 2⅛ bricks.
ELEVATED (REWORK) - A large 3D outline display typeface design with shadow effect.
It's inspired by the lettering from a sketch by great Dutch graphical designer "Jurriaan Schrofer".
This is the long overdue shadow style variant which was requested by Goatmeal and elmoyenique. It has the diagonal shading lines included (as was also presented in the original sketch by Jurriaan Schrofer)
Due to the inexperience that I had in my early days of FontStructing and the lack of proper knowledge about raster scaling, I faced some serious issues regarding the correct size distribution. This had me unable to include the diagonal lines properly into that pre-existing font with them having equal seporation and white space througout the entire design.
So instead of making a clone of my previously published version "STF_ELEVATED" and include the shadow font variant into that family as a seporate FontStruction (like I did with most other style variations back then), I decided to rebuild the full font. Putting it all together into this single re-worked font version.
This re-work has some important differences compared to the previous version. The first one, another size to grid ratio which optimizes the size distribution for digital display as well as drastically reduces the overall glyph size (more accurate version forthcoming). Some extra characters were added to the set, making it a slightly more functional basic font.
The shadow effect is the default style for this font, this also includes all numerals, punctuation marks and other symbols that make up the full font, these occupy the uppercase. The bare outline style A-Z glyphs occupy the lowercase.
Condensed geometric sans-serif typeface inspired by the lettering seen on a variety of different Dutch and German street signs.
The simple and clean geometric letterforms provide this typeface with a strong legibility in both display & body style text.
(grid size 3,5 × 7 at 2x2 brick size filter)

THIS IS MY THIRD AND FINAL ENTRY TO THE COMPETITION. MY LAST ENTRY WAS GOING TO BE SOMETHING ELSE, BUT THAT GOT TAKEN DOWN FOR RICKROLL-RELATED REASONS.
This version features both upper and lowercase characters plus some minor changes to it's appearance!This is a clone of STF_ORIGAMISH v1
Argh, I wish I never started this, It was terrible amounts of meticulous work and I wonder if ill ever add the lowercase letters to this type!!
172 x 74 units
0.5 x 0.5 grid scale (and still no full glyph fits on screen)
My take on those classic serif style stencil designs.
Initially I started this design as a all caps display style, the desicion for a lowercase came once the uppercase already had been completed, and I truly had a hard time making a good looking lowercase for this one.
Also it felt like kerning this style was much harder to see and get right than most other fonts I made.
There still remains a number of things I had rather seen different, like those numerals, but this is the best I could do for now, I hope you like it!
Fourth recap in a series to attempt to re-create some of the works from late great dutch graphic designer "Jurriaan Schrofer". I hope you like it.This is a clone
Recap from one of the alphabets originally designed by Dutch graphical designer "Jurriaan Schrofer".
The Letters were Originally designed for the Giro office building floor plan!
This is a style variation in the "ETAGE AANDUIDING" typeface family.
Enjoy!This is a clone of STF_ETAGE AANDUIDING (17x17)-MULTILINE
Another tribute to the great Dutch graphical designer/pioneer "Jurriaan Schrofer".
This time I didn't do a straight foreward recap of a specific work from the great man, but rather had myself inspired by a number of his sketches and combined those ideas all into this type! (Nonetheless ofcourse still heavily inspired by..)
Here are a few of the original works I drawn inspiration from:
"A.S.C. COMMUNICATIONS, SEMINOTICS, SIGNAGE SYSTEM PTT 1975 (Dutch Post Office) , BEURS VAN BERLAGE, UNREADABLE ALPHABET"This is a clone of STF_SANS_SEVERE_TYPEFACE-MULTILINES
A piece of constructivism inspired by Dutch artistic movement "De Stijl".
Inspired by raster scanning & horizontal synchronization for image & video display.
