NEXT SKYCITY - A decorative future-retro art deco style display design.
This is a remastered and extended sequel to an pre-existing older typeface design I did. Now, the reason for this was due to the fact that there was a lot going on in the older version I simply just wasn't satisfied with.
This new and extended version includes an overall more streamlined and consistent design. Much improved and more balanced looking numerals.
Also have I corrected and added numerous punctuation marks, and, last but not least.. What truly changed this previously more of a lettering idea type design into a relative usable full font is, the introdiction of a simple and legible geometric lowercase string. Make the font far more suitable for body text.
The uppercase and numeral strings are a random mix of both normal open stroke-based geometric letterforms and stylistic filled letter-contours, that, when arranged like this making the uppercase character set look playful and slightly future-ish retro at first, yet a somewhat strangely ellegant sophistication that is ever so gently present. This could be used in isolation for a strong and convincing decorative headline text, or in conbination with the lowercase for a surprisingly readable an clean looking body text that has the occasional occurance of a decorative capital letter.
I hope you like it so far...This is a clone
A modular sans for bold headlines that stand out
Based on the 1981 Lady Bug game typeface. Lady Bug is an insect-themed maze chase video game produced by Universal Entertainment and released in arcades in 1981. Its gameplay is similar to Pac-Man, with the primary addition to the formula being gates that change the layout of the maze when used.
My first attempt at creating a modular typeface as part of my studies in Graphic Design at City of Glasgow College.
This is my first attempt to design a super compact font to be realized with my modular rubberstamp system.
In January 2021 I was contacted by Pranksy of NFTBoxes.io that asked me to design an artwork for a new kind of collectible (we call them "NFTs" is the trend of 2021, I'm in this since 2018). The idea was to produce a piece in the theme of "innovators" and the main curator and artist of the subscription was Mr. Coldie!
I know Coldie since my inception in Superrare, he's one of the most incredible artists and creators of this space that we call "Cryptoart". He's doing a lot of strange things, but I noticed we both started doing our mad things using photocopier machines.
So I had this idea to realize a schematic of the working process of the photocopier. You can see the result HERE, there are 500 digital copies of the artwork available, you can buy one with some Ether, the cryptocurrency, if you want.
This font is the digital test, still be completed, that I've used for the artwork.
First designed for the Rare AF2 event, Rare Art Festival, about most innovative projects in the realm of cryptoart, held in New York:
18th May 2019 / Bushwick Generator
215 Moore Street / Brooklyn, NY 11206
Then expanded in october 2020 with lowercase set of glyphs for Adoption:
Adoption is an artists-run cryptoart gallery. Spreading nft and blockchain adoption.
This is the halfone version.
This was a fun one to experiment with. A lot of fonts I've done here have been done with strict design rules. It's fun to break them once in a while.
This one feels like it's been a long time coming. Surprised it only took me two and a half months to get all done, and half of that was it being on the backburner. A good, solid font with a futuristic slant to it. All Latin languages present and correct, as ever.
STANDAARD PROFIELEN - Digital revival of yet another design originally by
Jurriaan's original work is a logotype style lettering for a corporate identity brochure, that he designed for one of his clients, a Dutch timber trading company called: "Houthandel Rote - Westzaan N.V."
Schrofer's original work featured the plain black text "standaard profielen" and was written in all lowercase letters. (source image bellow)
As far as I know this were the only characters he designed for this specific project.
It's a very simple grid based modular brick type lettering. Only two bricks were used to create each individual letterform. So they have a profound and inevitably dictating resonance to the visual appearance of the letterforms, a visual presence that I could not stray away from too far.
This stylistical design parameter made it somewhat extra tricky for the successfully faithful extrapolation of the remaining missing glyphs, turning it into a complete glyph-set and basic usable font. The source also remains pretty unclear on how Jurriaan would've designed characters with crossing strokes, such as Kk / Xx.
The original corner brick works well with just this small character set in the source, but the rectangular outside part of this brick fills a substantial surface area, (over 3/4th of a brick in total), resulting in bleeding-like contrast issues. So, having mostly undesirable effects in brick-congested areas or with intersecting strokes.
An additional beveled corner brick was added to address most of this issue.
All 'n all, for this reason I just captured its basic lowercase letterforms, numerals and only the bare essential punctuation marks for making it functional are included for now, no accents !
A font made to be very economical.
This design uses as few unique shapes as possible. In addition to extensive rotations and flips (see AR, EMW, FL, GJUV, IHKT, NSZ25), glyphs are made so that they can be cut down to make other glyphs in as few cuts as possible (see BEI, used to make ACDFLMNOPRSWYZ1235689). Some other glyphs (see QX.,) then make use of the cut parts.
This means that, were these letters to be physically made, the maker would only need a few forms to start with and could cut the rest in only a few steps.
The name was chosen because of both a running joke between friends and because it was the coolest-looking phrase I tried when I auditioned the font.
By request, "a font that looks like a hybrid of Greek and Latin".
This is designed to be modular. UPPER CASE contains the standard glyphs. Alternates are on the lowercase as well as the More Latin band.
"Novus Graecorum" means "The New Greek".
Supports Dutch, English, and Greek!
Modern modular geometric minuscule script style sans-serif typeface.
Typeface design based on a typographic poster that is celebrating Wim Crouwel, and was designed by Matthew Lew.
A typeface design that was inspired by a poster designed by chuck Sperry for Kraftwerk, at the Paradiso, Amsterdam back in January 2015.
I don't know if this already is a existing font, but I don't really care.
The letters on the poster simply kept begging me for a digital recap.
