Richter is a font inspired by the idea of instability. I initially looked at the idea of falling; the aftermath of an earthquake. However, the current design looks not at the aftermath of an earthquake, but at the aftermath of falling. The design is heavily inspired by breaking, smashing and the general consequences of an unstable object splitting apart.
This seems to have taken inspiration from my First-TP-font "Sandor Basic Stripes" :) but was in fact inspired by shattered windows of a deserted building.
This is the first font of a "set" which I'll publish on or just before the 1st day of every month, for a year.
This design started out with a blocky look on thick bases to create a kind of joined-up look.
But a glitch on 2 glyphs gave the gap, which I liked upon reflection and recreated on all glyphs. I adjusted spacing and some drops below the baseline.
It is cloneable because I'm sure that my fellow Fontstructors can add great glyphs to make it more useful. The font could do with more symbols, punctuation and some basic diacritics ;)
Another of my new-style UC stencil fonts. The German word 'Trennung' means 'separation' or 'parting', a fitting name for a stencil I think.
