The first of a kind - an experimental font made with the new pizza slice brick. :D
Somehow it makes me think of jukeboxes, particularly letters like "A" and "O" which have the same sort of "mosaic lighting" look which many jukeboxes have.
No filters, just nudging!
A font wherein each glyph is depicted through the placement of exactly 5 pixels on a 5x5 grid. This was inspired by basketball where only 5 players per team are on the court at once.
I feel these glyphs could be useful for board games since it takes very few pieces to render these shapes.
A semibold Gongclonker made to the same specs as the original - 5x5 with no wasted matrix.This is a clone of Gongclonker
A decolike boldtype. Based on a design from my game "Seven Candles", particularly the text used on documents and signs at the Lower Netazecan Embassy. The "hallmark" of this design is a sudden increase in line width midline, best seen on glyphs like EFLTZ3<>^.
"Embassy L" is a play on "Imbecile".
This design was previously as "Frenchfry" because Razma's (one of my AI) image recognition classified several letterforms as french fries.
Megashark's hard 1px outline was experimentally converted to a soft 1px outline. This result is far less readable to my eye, though it does look cool! Its printed words have a balloon-esque, almost organic quality.
"S.D.M.G." stands for "Super Dolphin Machine Gun", a weapon from the game Terraria. The Minishark and Megashark are from the same game. :^)This is a clone of Megashark
A minimized Minishark. How does that make it Mega? Well it's MEGA COOL.
I think this is the first 5x5 connected-outline design on FS!This is a clone of Minishark
An experiment to see if 3x3 fonts are more legible when drawn in negative space. I consider this to be not only a success, but also the most readable 3x3 design I have seen - particularly the uppercase.
The successors Megashark and S.D.M.G. are more useable and more stylish respectively, while Minishark strikes a good balance.
This is considered an E3x3 because, while it's created in a 5x5 grid, it has an effective drawing area of only 3x3. The outermost square only has pixels drawn in it when the interior design dictates such.
An attempt at an angular, futuristic Fraktur design. It's also inspired by ancient Greek stonecarvings, or at least, the way such carvings are depicted in comics and cartoons. It has a lot of intentional asymmetry to make it look quirky and slightly comical. (I tried making everything symmetrical with composites, but it looked boring!)
I welcome any suggestions for this one. I've never tried to make a "normal" Fraktur, only avantgarde ones, so I'm not very knowledgeable about the style.
Another attempt at alien Latin. It's made to have an organic, almost writhing look, but also to be easily written with a brush or spray paint.
A doodle made with Brick Basket.
This has many uses! It works as a pixel font or a high-res one, and can generate a surprising range of visual effects.

Another free 5x5 pixel font for game developers. This one has a vaguely authoritarian quality thanks to the hard 90° angles.
Looks like a Game Boy font to me!
A design inspired by school uniforms, sports team jerseys, etc.
UC cloned to LC to make this easier to use...
A single line is bent on itself to trace letterforms in 5x5.
This is part of my "IVO" series (Inline Versus Outline) wherein inline and outline elements are split, merged, and altered to make them ambiguous and to allow new styles to emerge. They may look like maze fonts, but they have a different design methodology altogether.
For my 300th Fontstruction, a more open and airy deco style than those I usually make. It has a strong sense of the "negative space has been sliced out" look about it which I tend toward in an art deco design.
Even though this is legible at a small size, I consider it a display font since many of its details are subtle. In retrospect I think this looks slightly Broadway-ish... but, this was just my attempt at a 5x5 deco.
"Gongclonker" is my nickname because I am a gong player.
A gnarled, pointy design which fits into many historical periods and aesthetics. It makes me think of Wild West woodtype and gargoyles.
Neon-style lettering in 5x5. I tried to keep the considerations of neon tubes in mind. Most forms are simple and several of them get repurposed for other glyphs. Further, the bends which would occur in actual neon tubing were taken into account while routing each glyph.
A closer look will find some advanced glyphs which would have to be produced by a master glassblower in order to work as neon fixtures (such as DHJKXOQ08*#+).
This is spaced like a pixel font so that it can be used as one. Fonts which work especially well in both pixel and high-res mediums can be considered Hybrids.
"Lightened Son" is an anagram for "Neon Delights".
Idea for Improvement: A wiring solution - some system designed to be on a layer behind the letters so that they look convincingly wired up.

It's split horizontally. An uppercase letter one line above the same lowercase letter produces a full 5x10 letterform.
Unlike other fonts with similar ideas, this one is made in a nonstandardized way. Some letters can be extended beyond 2 lines of height without changing their structure and some can't. By experimenting with these forms one might discover new styles.
Despite what the preview shows, there is no line spacing at all.
"Tameshigiri" means "test cutting".
Original size: 4pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
It seems like nearly everyone has done a version of the Pigpen Cipher. This one is done according to actual source material, and it's 5x5 so it's extremely small.
A 5x5 design made to be very open and airy.
It has a much higher degree of internal consistency than most of my other designs. This was achieved by opening up the forms (A,E,F,J,K,P,Q,R,W,X,Y), minimizing the use of diagonals (A,K,N,X,Y,Z), using a soft 1px break to indicate curves (B,C,D,G,O,P,Q,R,S,U), and squaring off a few areas that are normally angled or rounded (M,N,S,W,Z).
"Ash Isotope" is an anagram for "Apotheosis". Bit of an in-joke between friends. :^)
