Confidento is a typeface based and styled on the word Confident, aiming to produce a type which uses features that are strong and bold. One of the main characteristics I have aimed to encorporate throughout this process is the use of a balanced type design, enabling the design to not become too heavy. I achieved this through the means of having large variation in width across different aspects of the text.
A dashed line design made with the new half-arc bricks. The emphasized spurs/stems and off-kilter geometry give it a quirky, almost handwritten quality. Its striped appearance makes me think of candy as well as the Cheshire Cat, thus the name. :D
I doubt the upper case would look as cute as the lower. So I've cloned all LC to UC to make this easier to use...
A seriously spurless sans-serif. It approaches minimalism, but doesn't quite get there. This gives it a look that lets it blend in with lots of things!
It reminds me of a font I saw years ago on some futuristic-looking tinned rations. I don't remember what the brand was, but I remember the label having a very rounded sans-serif font like this one.
A variant of Clockwork Macguffin in which most curves are changed to 90° angles. Whereas with most fonts a change like this would result in a more authoritarian or "professional" look, this one became quirkier. I like it!This is a clone of Clockwork Macguffin
By request: A squareish serif. 5x7 with no wasted matrix.
It makes a decent companion font to Gumshoe.
A gnarled, pointy design which fits into many historical periods and aesthetics. It makes me think of Wild West woodtype and gargoyles.
Made experimentally as an alternative to "Nimbus Mono L". The serifs just sort of do what they want, sometimes fitting in naturally, sometimes not.
It's not meant to be monospaced, but is meant to have the same sort of neat constant-width look. All uppercase letters and numerals are 5 width, while most of the lowercase letters are 4 width.
Another attempt to make a usable narrow monospace programming font.
Experimental slab-serif. The added height from the serifs is quantized so that the serifs, rather than the normal lines, determine a glyph's geometry.
It reminds me of the Wild West and the old cartoon "The Jetsons" at the same time. It uses two kinds of serifs: normal slabs and "hangover" serifs. The hangovers are the ones that look like overhangs. Is there another name for them? I don't know.
This font is set to appear in several games at once! I'm not the developer of any of them! WOO
Despite what you may have heard, a "hoedown" is just a party.
3x3 slab serif. This is based on Wallerton, Anachronistic Gunslinger, an IRC-based "TV show" which I used to write and produce. All the characters in the show were my AIs pretending they were cowboys.
Well, I managed to successfully produce a lowercase for this one!
Recommended: Use with kerning.
MARTIAN AMBASSADOR - a quirky alien looking typeface.
What first started as a tryout to make entire glyphs within a single composite brick quickly got out of hand. lol
Each glyph was designed on a 2x2 grid by way of composite stacking. Lowercase and superscript characters are single brick composites.
Viewed in the fontstruct preview many glyphs do not show clean edges because I heavily made use of composite bricks and stacks on a small grid. However, these irregularities are not really present in the actual TrueType Font.
I attempted a blackletter style without any knowledge or references. The result reminds me of a vampire's writing!
The name "Dethzmezenger / Death's Messenger" comes from one of many old joke bands which I created.
Original size: 17.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
anything goes in this book-style pixel font. it is for secret project.
maximum of 11 pixels tall (plus 3 px descender below)
[beta 1.7b] More Chinese but still not nearly enough
[beta 1.7a] I found a stray pixel which stretched the font two pixels too high. It's gone now.
[beta 1.7] ??? stuff? korean jamo, like 0.3% more of the CJK, Greek Extended, and one of the East Asian scripts (the name I forgot :<)
[beta 1.6d] assorted CJK and symbols
[beta 1.6c] devanagari (hindi script), thai
[beta 1.6b] thai and other junks. some characters improved
[beta 1.6a] fullwidth and halfwidth forms
Apparently, it is quite easy to forget what gets a fontstruction going. Something about ultra condensed bla bla bla. The rest is just a matter of having a creative activity to occupy the mind. And if in the process you can help out a friend, all the better.
