Letters within letters! Type an uppercase letter followed by a lowercase letter to nest them. Type a period for an inner square, and > for an outer square.
This was an experiment from several years ago that I found half-finished while looking for potential CounterComp entries. I added missing letters and quite dramatically improved the existing ones. It's not perfect, and some combinations don't work so well (I'm particularly unhappy with capital I), but I think it turned out pretty well nonetheless.
Beware: for some reason, the downloaded font is huge-about 6 times the height of most other fonts-which makes it look horrible in e.g. MS Word, due to the pixel optimization at "small" sizes. I'm not sure what causes this, and consequentially, I don't know how to fix it.
A pixel font made to look like fire! Now you can answer (and ask!) your burning questions...
Original size: 18pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
The coloring, infill color, and effects you use with this font make a drastic difference as to what looks are evoked by its shapes! Scroll down for lots of examples. :^)
Alternates on lowercase!

Welcome to Tridisaster. It's ALL TRIANGLES, ALL THE TIME. Welcome to Triangle Channel.
Mathematical operators have a distinctive "open" look to help set them apart. There are few exceptions (like ^) because these symbols are used in many non-math contexts.
The only one I'm not sure about at this point is the comma, which works fine for my purposes, but probably makes this font a pain for anyone who tries to read/write at length with it. XD
All Basic Latin is kerned for both cases! Use a mixed case to create weird alien scaffolding! Inverted ",." can be found on "µ¶".

A pseudo-woodcut look. Kind of western, pirate-esque, or maybe even medieval!
10 Mar 2018 - v1.0
02 Apr 2018 - v1.1. Lowercase added. It will continue to develop with time.
An experimental font "antipode". The opposition lies in the fact that in one font there are rounded strokes and pixels. Some letters and characters are completely rounded, some are pixelated, and some have both rounded and pixel elements
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 :)
A display typeface based upon some physical type I made from dark food colouring etched into sugar syrup - this is the second part in which the food dye has bled into the sugar syrup much more. This was to represent the brief theme I picked of 'unstable', hence why all the characters are completely induvidual in size and shape. I have also published a first version of this type before the dye bled into the syrup.

Designed for illegibility. In theory, leverages neuroplasticity so you can read it after practice and nobody else can. May not be useful to anybody else. May not even work for me. Experimental.
Note: This is named "Cryptonomicon Basis", as the general form of the letters is the Cryptonomicon and this is the reference font- other fonts can be made with the same letter form and still implement Cryptonomicon.
An unconventional way to construct 5x5 pixel-based font using nudging facility to give an effect of distortion. Aaand yes, it's readable at pixel size.
