STF_SKYR SLAB - A modern slab serif design.
First of all, Hi everyone,
I hope you all doing great...
Seems that for now I have found my way back here, after being away from Fontstruct for nearly 2 years.
I got to admit that I experienced some ring rust at first. lol
Anyway, here is my latest fontstruction, the first one in 2 years.
So far the main design concept and the basic minimum glyph set is about completed, and I am pretty pleased with the result up untill this point.
More technical details on the design and concept as well as demo gfx can be found down in the comment section.
I hope you like it too so far
Hello again! Here's someting I started dabbling with years ago, but never finished or published. Fontstruct bricks and functions have evolved since then so I decided to give the ‘font’ a facelift and make it a little more complete (still no plethora of glyphs but I'm ok with it for now). Circus wild west meets casino and slot machines. Gambling, gunpowder, acrobats and jesters. Wash down with tequila.
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.
Decorative experimental letters drawn around XX pattern.
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.
American frontier and western inspired display type.
Still needs a little bit of tweaking here and there. Also for some reason leading is not what it supose to be, it runs short a bit. But this is far from problematic.
A serif font with a couple of nice little touches to it. My original idea was to attempt to make a Donburi Serif, but about three glyphs in turned into its own thing.
Ten years ago, a StumbleUpon Fontstruct on April 8, 2008 has been one of the highlights of my life. Few things have provided so much joy and fewer things have kept my interest for so long. Type design has always been a fascination for me and the simplicity of the UI/UX of fontstruct has allowed me to explore all that I can imagine without getting in the way while letting me do as I please for the most part. In times of creativity, fontstruct was there to let it flow, and in times of personal lows, fontstruct was there to allow me to ignore that which was beyond my control. Furthermore, the overall civility and helpful nature of the fontstruct community is still one of the best on the internet. I have been using the fontstruct website almost daily for 10 years now and rarely do I not see something new that is amazing and awe inspiring. The creativity of the designers past and present is incredible.
I wish to thank FontShop for sponsoring fontstruct for so long allowing it to grow. Most importantly, I wish to thank Mr. Meek for creating and constantly enhancing this incredible gift of creativity and a calming haven for over-active minds.
Happy 10th anniversary to FS and all the fontstructors! Thanks a million to Meek and the sponsors. This is a wonderful trip and the future is infront of us, compañeros!
BTW, "Sorpasso" means "overtaking" in italian.
Thank you for this incredible gift that is fontstruct, Rob. Always a joy.
Congratulation on achieving the first ten years today (April 1, 2018).
Best wishes, as ever.This is a clone of tm Fest
G1 Obsidian Black. Created around 2009 and incomplete due to brick limitations, now updated with new bricks as originally envisioned.
