A project I've been working on for some time that combines a readable writing system with a means of creating decorative streams of symbols, allowing for practical or artistic use. It is designed to be writable in the same way as English, with a couple key differences:
end of sentence within a thought:
. = SPACEBARx2
? = ?SPACEBAR
! = !SPACEBAR
end of thought:
? = ?-
! = !-
end of paragraph:
. = .
? = ?-
! = !-
numbers at the beginning of a sentence = ###-SPACEBARtext
numbers at end of sentence = textSPACEBAR-###SPACEBAR-
Use as applicable to avoid numbers and letters bleeding into each other.
For purely artistic streams of writing, Start every sentence with a capital, skip spaces, and use '-' as a period. This allows for a smooth bar of symbols without any random bits jutting out that can be used for framing or backgrounds.
Pixel cursive, mostly on a 5x5 grid. Maybe this is the terminal font for some cybernetic old lady's computer? :D
It was possible to build every letter in 5x5, but it honestly looks far better when letters with descenders are allowed to descend a bit. This also works to increase the line spacing, which this font really needs for readability.
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
a cursive font
Upper case doesn't always connect to things
Lower case connect to left and right except for v and z
Latin , more latin(letters) completed
i'll make cyrillic(russian only)
If you don't see the letter you need in your language. Leave a comment to tell me :)
Cursive font by Berkeley Softworks (17 point). Appeared in GEOS FontPack PLUS. Failing to find a TrueType equivalent - couldn't find the right glyphs, especially the 'r' - I've created this version. Only characters are standard ASCII set. Some kerning needs work, but out of the box you'll get joined letters and running script.
First attempt at a cursive pixel font. The name derives from an old joke band, whose name is itself a parody of the name of a toy gun by BoomCo, the "Rapid Madness".
Original size: 12pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
09 Mar 2018 - v1.0 released.
10 Mar 2018 - v1.1 released.
13 Mar 2018 - v1.2 released. More Latin support added. The capital letters were cleaned up to make them nicer-looking when appearing in isolation. Excess spaces/lengths of line were reduced to make for denser-looking, more naturally handwritten words.
02 Apr 2018 - "More Latin" and "Google Fonts Basic" ranges finished. More shortening/optimization done for the extended Latin letters.
An alphabet of my own creation for the writing of a fictional language, also of my own creation. Despite its origin, it can be used for writing English with no problems.
An adaption of my previous alphabet. Works best with Spanish keyboard.This is a clone
This typeface is inspired by the novel Herzog - in which a man with an unstable mind, who writes letters to ghosts, writes in the most delicate and held together handwriting. I want to show the idea of an unstable mind through this font, seemingly controlled and held together, but inside, something isn't stable.This is a clone
simple cursive pixel font
capitals are for connecting after a letter with a stroke ending on the median
real capitals are at unicode spaces 0040-007E
A cursive pixel font, made in an 8x8 grid like the Nintendo Entertainment System's fonts.
