Edit: Good news! I cancelled to make this font in fontstruct because im going to transfer it to Inkscape (to design glyphs) and Fontforge (to copy paste the glyphs here from Inkscape for metrics, kerning, and font data stuff) so I don't have to rely on internet connection anymore. I even want to make lots of varieties of this font from sharp corners to gear looking corners to a bit of shifted glyph chaos.
I think I can let you use this font now.
I published this because I just want to know what would happen if I published a fontstruct. It was initially undownloadable.
Here's a preview of my first font I made in fontstruct. I initially made this font in Geometry Dash level editor (yeah, you've read it right) and left unfinished and I decided to reconstruct the font here in fontstruct.
Fontstruct is really good font creating website (I wish there was offline app/software version of fontstruct). I've encountered an annoying jumbled brick bug, but fortunately I've manage to fix the bug, by replacing "my bricks" with the correct bricks from below (don't know how to explain).This is a clone
Working under the theme of 'Rebirth', I have focused my first font on the idea of post-war architecture, or otherwise commonly known as modernist/brutalist architecture. Buildings constructed following the Second World War were built using new technologies of construction. These types of designs were known for their use of modern materials such as concrete and steel as well as their interesting geometrical forms. I was heavily influenced by the architecture featured in Owen Hopkins' book 'Lost Futures' which looks at the disappearing architecture of post-war Britain and how changing external contexts played a role in the subsequent destruction of these buildings.
My font is inspired by Navajo rugs and blankets and the main theme I went with was ReBirth. I thought this was fitting as the Navajo people create these rugs to tell a story of there beliefs and religion, which has been implemented in this font but instead, the words can tell the story and the design is inspired by the Navajo rugs and blankets.
Currently studying graphic design at UWE Bristol this is my first FonstStruct attempt, creating a typeface based on the theme ‘Rebirth’. After mind mapping all the ideas that sprang to mind when hearing this theme, the idea of our spiritual centre and specifically the seed of life, sacred geometry and recurring patterns in our universe stood out to me as subjects I wanted to explore.
After overlaying various sacred geometry over each other, to find similarities and differenced, specifically focusing on trying to unite the masculine and feminine attributes of the shapes, I started to draw and create my own recurring patterns.
Through research into existing religious script and spiritual fonts I found inspiration from the harsh angles uniting with soft curves. I started to create my own font building blocks and by creating my own bricks on FontStruct to create both my letters and recurring pattern which I placed within my letters to symbolise the sacred geometry and roots at the centre of all our lives.
Will make more characters.
Strange, the S and Z look better as the opposite of the shapes I expected them to be. 15 letters are basic shapes, 3 letters are 1x2 constructs, 6 letters are 2x2 constructs, and 2 letters are 3x3 constructs.
I'll make a small version cuz this is kinda too big as a pixel font and too small as a usual font lol
Font built on a dotted grid. The sort of font you might create with a geoboard.
