Unicase font. You can find alternates to "A" & "E" at the lowercase "a" & "e" (and their accents, of course), an additional design for the "Q" at the "q" and a "c" typing the "¢" sign. This font is directly inspired on Nickel created by the cool typographer David Jonathan Ross from DJR Foundry. Why? I don't know if this will happen to any of you, but me, when I stop to look at a font that I like, I find myself evaluating how the author has solved the usual "design problems". There are times when I agree with the chosen solutions (the most), but there are others when I think I would do it differently. This is the case. I wanted to modify a bit the general appearance of some glyphs of the font, especially characters like C, E, F, G, M, Q, R, S, X, Z and more, or the numbers and some secondary others. The differences were extensives and are more or less subtle in each of the complete set... And here you are the final result, I hope you like it. I've learned a lot during this experience, and FontStruct has been shown to be a very valid tool to work at this level. Thanks for read my little explanation and enjoy with this work, please.
Very curly unicase font. The glyphs with swashes are on the uppercase and some alternates on the lowercase. Refreshing an old idea. Enjoy.
WIP. This is a specially designed (but unfinished) font for this Christmas greeting with my best-best-best wishes to all of you, dear long-distance friends. And my family and I send you with this our enormous hope for the next 2022 to be much better for every one of the huge group of people who friendly use FontStruct. Be happy wherever you are and whenever you can. Warm hugs. ❤️❤️❤️! PS: Better see at big size.This is a clone
Extra squared-blocky-rocky western font. Caps only. Waiter, could I have a sarsaparilla drink, please? Based on some glyphs from "Pionner" (1969) by Francisco Gonzales.
Another handwriting script style font. Some suggestions for a better results: 1) You can put an additional bar (placed in the "<" and ">" glyphs) before typing a lowercase word. 2) And it's also convenient to add an extra space before writing a word with a capital letter to improve the separation between they. But you're the boss with it. Enjoy.
This design was created as part of the TwentiesComp. Too bad, due to lack of time, it was not finished. I realize db Pontus still needs a bit of time and patience to be ready (glyphs, kernig etc...) However, I just want to introduce db Pontus in this context already ; )
Paris, Berlin, Moscow in the 1920s... Art Deco, Bauhaus, Konstruktivizm... Effervescent people! This font is for Sandrine, the woman with white hat in the picture, and for all the people who together built the world. See also ztefan and zergei.
Decorative experimental letters drawn around XX pattern.
In develiping...This is a clone
Emil has a sympatic character, even if he has his little edges and corners. Nevertheless, Emil is not too eccentric. It' s possible to work with him and maybe Emil will go one step further towards italics...?
A non standard stencil/piano-like font, using an experimental "guides + nudging" kerning process and a lot of smooth curvy shapes. Some soft alternates (for A, W, w, X, x, Y and y) are in the ligatures area at the More Latin section.This is a clone
Obviously dedicated to the great Sergio Leone and his Spaghetti Western "Dollars Trilogy" filmed in Almería. The uppercase was shot. Contains some extra western dingbats, keep your head down.
The name "zashitnik" comes from the great "Luna" sci-fi trilogy by Ian McDonald (meaning fighter with knives hired for trials by combat, literally "defender").
Pixel-rounded version of zhowfrakt. Another point of view, more "organic".This is a clone of zhowfrakt eYe/FS
Another "genre" font, this one for the invaluable old style vampire people. BTW, sinople is the name of the green colour in heraldic.
After zilverbullet (my last font for lycanthropes) here you are another special, this time is for... zombies! NB: Contains some alternatives to the UC (in the LC) and cyrillic set.
Including cyrillic (to native cyrillic users about my glyphs: help & comments are welcomed, please). Some kerning is in process. See also zendera smallcaps eYe/FS.
Ahh sadly due to repeatedly running into a corrupted font when I save newly made changes to it, it eventually catched up with me and tested the limit of my patience.
I have had to painstakingly restore the font 5 times already since I started it.
So I stopped including new characters as well as making new changes to its existing character set. (At least for now)
Too bad because I wouldve loved to see this truly getting finalized.
So at this stage there are still a number of characters that remain in rough condition, and had yet to be further optimized.
The main A-Z alphabet luckily already was close to how I invisioned it, but especially the numerals, symbols and accents still have some rough edges.
Now, forgetting all that, I still think it is not a bad font at all. Everything is there for most common Western-European languages, somewhat still making this a usable font that I shouldn't be keeping in private!
I hope that despite my bad luck this time, y'all still like it.
About this Font:
The idea was to make a classic Didone style display serif that is meant for making clean headline text similar to those often seen in older magazines or newspapers. I set out trying to design a semi-bold & slight expanded looking letterform with thin hairline serifs and strokes. I choose a large grid scale for the extra freedom in custom shaping this provides.
Technique I used in this design:
This font in particular I have experimented with working within a "(asymmetrical-) Grid Scale ratio" ( 1,5:1 ), so, changing only the value for the Horizontal grid scale. (This distorts the grid aspect ratio, and is a great way to discover and experiment with getting new forms and shapes).
The 1,5 : 1 ratio was specifically choosen to keep maths simple, in order to rebuild certain required bricks that build specific slope angles , such as a 45° (which is no longer possible to make from the FS default brick set when using asymmetric scale ratios, unless making composites).
But what this also does is opening up a totally new approach to making shapes, and..becoming quite a surprisingly easy shortcut to get unusual shapes or make variations on these, even with as little as just the rotation of the bricks/selection. (thanks to the distorted aspect ratio) :-).
This is a must try for those who are into large grid designs, fake curves or interrested in experimenting around a little.
