I started this... more than eleven years ago (!), and changed directions at least a couple of times along the way, so perhaps it would have been better to start from scratch.
Anyway, I thought it would be an appropriate typeface for the holiday season :-)
Accepting @lucapri's suggestion, here is zoubizz... now with lowercase!This is a clone of zoubizz eYe/FS
Another unicase with alternates and also an optical experiment (this time based in a certain way on some works by the great Philippe Apeloig). Optional filled space placed in the "^" glyph.
RINKEL — Bold constructivist display design
This was very much influenced by the rare sighting of
1974's Lettergraphics International typeface by the name 'Belden'
Belden was shown in a Lettergraphics ad in U&lc vol. 1, no. 3 from 1974, without further design credits. It was also featured in the book cover design for "Metaphysics: An Introduction" by Keith Campbell.
—Which in terms I have used for my personal extrapolation of the complete character set of this FontStruction.
Not a digitizing revival of the original piece, but rather a very strongly inspired personal take on it.
—More complete character set is coming soon..
Let me know what u fellow structivists think of it so far!
INNERCITY — Geometric future retro display grotesque
Geometric unicase display sans with a stylistic filled counter-like (Uc) set and monolinear 'bare-boned' geometric grotesque (Lc) set.
— Full alphanumeric dual-variant font !!
Elmoyenique's "zenzura" (a very stylish work in it's own right, make sure to check that one as well) anyway,
His 'zenzura' font kind of struck me with a healthy fresh dose of motivation. In the past I've explored somewhat similar style designs, but none of those ever really got consolidated into the extensive and complete work Elmo delivered with his stunning zenzura.
So I decided to dig up one of my older such projects and see if this new motivational boost could turn 'half'-a-font into a complete piece.
Long story short, this update is the result of that venture.
Where previously this project came in just one style (filled counters), with no additional glyph alternates. Basically a complete absense of the lowercase-string all together, and only very limited complementary set of symbols and punctuation marks were present. Neither did the previous version had a great deal of refinement in terms of metrics / kerning and overall horizontal distribution of type-set material. So, it was nothing more than a plain doodle of the idea I had back then, that had to be preserved for a later stage.
But being drawn into more recent projects at the time I eventually ren dry on motivation to fully finalize this I ended up publishing it in its rough state.
ABOUT THE UPDATE:
The'bare-boned' lowercase is a somewhat futuristic geometric looking form, whereas the filled uppercase set has a strong retro vibe.
Combined in 'mixed-case' it can make a cool optional decorative style capitalization for your text. Used in isolation the two styles (Uc, Lc) both could be used as two seporate fonts, allowing stylistic text hierarchy.
In addition to the stylish retro-like, and partially filled forms I included a glyph-alternative set that strips the letterforms down to their monolinear core-geometric essence.
The design of this set is characterized by the spacious, sharp and clear appearance, that looks slightly futuristic but fashionable still.
With this new addition being the more legible and clean form of the two style sets, I placed this variation into the lowercase-string, making this the default-style for the font.
For the numerals, symbols and punctuations, I tried to remain committed to the stylish filled nature of the uppercase set.
A full alternative monolinear and 'bare-boned' numeral counterpart is located in the 'Full Width' Unicode block. Two extra weight variations for the brackets are also included for a more precise personal preference..
— And so it finally could respectably considered being a full font after all.
Thats all folks.. Enjoy !
cheersThis is a clone
Solid squared unicase with a lot of alternates (placed in the lowercase zone), almost two fonts in one. "c" in the "¢" glyph. Enjoy.
Opening day of Marvel's Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever!
I started this late and suffered the consequences, but had to release something. This took a long time and didn't look like how I wanted it to or as good as I wanted it to, but there it is. WIP as I attempt to clean up and adust stuff.
BLAUHAUS (Plus) - 'Bauhaus'-inspired design
This is the 'Pro' version in the BLAUHAUS family, and instead to the first version this includes a full uppercase set as well. The glyph alternatives that previously occupied the (Uc) string has been relocated to the "Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms" Unicode block.
In addition to that a whole bunch of extra glyph alernatives, numerous symbols, dingbats, arrows and other elements are included as well.
I do realize it is far from perfect, but since it was designed on a very tiny grid and without filters, a whole lot of available realestate to house bricks wasn't a luxury for this project.
Nonetheless I've tried to put in plenty of diversity, and I think the underlying constraining effect as result of the limitations from not utilizing 'brick size'-filters works out just fine in preserving a certain degree of minimalism.
5/8 weight, no filters and only 4/8 nudging within FS-editor posed another dificulty, but despite all these challenges it was a very fun project to puzzle with...
I hope y'all like it..

A little experiment with the "connect" bricks (and an healty dose of stacking). I wasn't referencing any specific example of the style (of which there are many), but I'm sure that, looking for solutions as I went, I ended up with something similar to already existing typefaces (and fontstructions).
Unfortunately, some connecting bricks don't align exactly, so I had to resort to approximate them, when possible, with more stacking, which didn't particularly help the already lacking consistency in construction.
But enough moaning, enjoy!
Another optical experiment, testing border areas. Sorry if sometimes it's a bit hard to read and it shakes your vision, but that was the idea. It has only been possible using the colour options available to FontStruct Patrons. Thanks once again to Big Rob Meek. PS: "2 in 1 font", the black version of the SVG file also can works like an usual B/W font.
