this typeface is adapted from one of the culture in Indonesia (PAPUA), especially the shield. papua is a wonderful place it's still close to nature, that's why I'm choosing it as my inspiration of this typeface.

Inspired by, but ended up nowhere near like, the title card font for Ballykissangel. Capitals have ascenders/descenders, lower case is the same set of capitals but without those (since they don't look great in certain alignments), mix and match for the best visual effect.

If there was a converter that converted music to fonts, this is what I'd expect to come out if you put in dubstep.
Inspired by the logos of dubstep artists such as Nero and Skrillex.

A monospaced, serif retrofuture font designed to be easily legible while still having a distinctive visual style. Full Basic Latin and some extended symbols.v2 improves legibility of "m" and several symbols (mathematical operators, mainly) ~12Kb .zip (getting v3 instead is recommended) 2-21-12: Applied v3 punctuation fixes since this was made a top pick instead. v3 still has more improvements, though, even in the Basic Latin set.

I could never quite find a font as thin as I wanted, so eventually I decided to make one myself. So far it only supports English and German, but I hope to add more soon.
Pronounced the same as Helvetica.

Based on Pincoya Black, this font connects letters together as you type. Alternate letters are in the lowercase slots, so some experimentation might be needed.

This fontstruction was started a long time ago. Yesterday, being bored (or something), I randomly clicked on page 7 of My FontStructions and found this. Being bored (or something), I clicked Edit.
Back in February 2010, I was able to take this fs only so far and came to a halt owing to geometry and FontStructor limitations. Those limitations, for the most part, seemed to have disappeared in the intervening time. I must've felt encouraged as I've been working on this fs all day today. As it turns out, when you work on something long enough, something will emerge. Et voilà. (I jest. ;)
Oh the soap box syndrome!
Visual aesthetics require two elements, namely, art and design. Let's examine each, shall we, the better to understand whence this came from and to what purpose.
Art has as many meanings as there are people giving them. For me, art is that visual that appeals to one, the stress being on 'one', and serves no practical purpose. Design, on the other hand, by definition*, must serve some purpose, must be reasonably attractive to those for who it is intended, and must stay within the limitation (whether explicit or implicit) of all that is (or will be) involved.
This and every other fontstruction, being visual in nature, has an element of art in it. Keeping the above art definition in mind, and as far as this fs is concerned, the art was my personal aspiration to try to do a diagonal stem of the A and the M and have the rest of the letters in such formation so that they fit like a glove with the A and M (without any effort on the user's part — but that jumps ahead to design). The February 2010 version of the FontStructor allowed me to achieve that very well. The art part was a start (yes, sorry, I couldn't resist the rhyme).
In my experience, any visual thing, no matter how simple or complex; no matter how involved or not; how unique or generic; how &c. and &c. may be termed art as if any one person appreciates it, it is art, albeit to that person only. So, I am satisfied how this fs looks, so the art is done. Also as per my personal experience, design is a much harder, difficult, involved element of getting something done right that also requires appropriate technical know-how to see it to fruition. The February 2010 version of the FontStructor did not allow the 'fit like a glove without user intervention' part. This morning when I started working on this fs, the September 2011 version of the FontStructor allowed me to do almost all that I wanted it to. (I say 'almost' because there were one or two custom bricks I required that I was unable to achieve, quite possibly due to my own inability).
The design confine [—if art gets a rhyme, so shall design—], with every letter overlapping just so, required quite a lot of geometric manipulation (not particularly apparent) to make sure any two letters fitted in properly. It got tedious quick fast in-a-hurry typing out manual kerning pairs (AM, ST, &c.). I had to type out all kerning pairs (AB, AC…RI, RJ, RK…SM, SN, SO…VS, VT, VY…ZZ…&c.) in Word (utilizing handy Replace functionality to speed kerning pair creation) and test every possible pair (even ones that are likely never to be used in reality—QK, for instance).
This being a design exercise, there had to be a purpose. My thinking was, staying within the limitations created by the art part, the font should work as an instant logo delivery system. Type a word in fs Instant—and, hey presto!, Logo (a gogo). It’s up to you to decide if I succeeded.

My starting point was the word 'energy' with inspiration taken from action movie posters and a bold, concrete cityscape.

This is my first attempt to use fontstruct, which is a project given to me during my first year of studying graphic design at UWE; Bristol.
Initially the typeface was inspired by the product of organic decay. I cut out strawberries, apples and tomatoes in the shape of letters and left them to decay on a sheet of paper. When removing them, they left an interesting stained mark on the paper which I used as my basis for the letter forms. Latterly I have used the typeface "Hobo Std" as inspiration because of it's curvaceous body and similarity to the remaining marks of the fruit and vegetables. It is a display font having because of it's better readability on larger sizes. This due to the stained effect as well as the letters are bold. This is a clone

So, this is basically a very dirty font. Took me a lot of effort to make it. I will add more letters and things like that to this font later, but for now enjoy this fine piece of work.

I recently resumed use of fontstruct, and found that i had this font on private. I fixed up a few letters, and poof!
"()"=hilts, "<>"=tips, "_@#="=spaces

Letters on isometric cubes... just trying out shading...
For blank space press | (You will see a line, but it will disappear when you put in another letter).
For a DIY letter press ~ (For carving out a symbol or anything you want).

tryin’ hard, I got screwy.
greek and cyrillic shaping up;
more characters to come...
[update April, 2013:: The basic latin set has morphed into a new gothic sans design thanks to a host of solutions enabled by the new propeller bricks.]
