Last weekend I was feeling a little nostalgic and decided to review my first ❤️ FontStruction (I made it in 2009, over 14 years ago). Time and fonts have passed since then, but I still like the overall look of it, so I decided to give it a facelift: I changed some important things about the diagonals and the building of quite a few glyphs, as well as restructuring the overall design, homogenizing it a little (taking into account my inexperience then), adding kerning... Now I present it to you again, hoping that you like its current appearance and that someone sees in it the value that I see. Thanks in advance.This is a clone of zamzibar eYe/FS
Black and rounded display font. Made with 2:2 filters, x height = 2 bricks (yes, truly), UC height = 2,5 bricks, and descenders = 0,5 brick. Plus: "ff" and "tt" ligatures placed at the "fi" and "fl" glyphs, and a lot of kern done but more in progress. Enjoy, please.
PS: Thanks to @Sed4tives for his continuous, selfless and very helpful help on improving this font. I'm in debt, compa!
STF_TEFlonALuminium -A contemporary geometric sans-serif typeface.
The font is inspired by the brand logo for French kitchen and home appliances company 'Tefal'
The design was extrapolated from just the five letters seen in the logo.
I hope you like it
Uppercase font. Based in antique romanian alphabets, but modernized. Contains the romanian A, S and T special diacritics (at the <, > and ^ glyphs), and an extra U in the lowercase because the traditional romanian U looks like a V to me. Created during a summer vacation, when travel was still easy.

■ [ ADDITIONAL EXTRA IMPORTANT RELEASE NOTES ]
Previously published as a (non-Pro)-version with the same name.
But when that version eventually corrupted, it rendered it useless.
And after several repair attempts the innitial isolated "FS-editor" native
brick corruption eventually was fixed! But from this point onward all theFontStruct-generated-*.TTF-files downloaded from this particular FontStruction delivered a broken TrueType-font file, that upon its installation process resulted in having a error. Leaving me, or anyone for that matter who had downloaded it, unable to get it or its updates installed.
So after unsuccesfull struggling for a while I noticed that the cloned version didn't generate a broken *.TTF-file. So I decided to terminated the original FontStruction and delete it.
■ [ DESIGN INFORMATION ]
The main inspiration came from those early to mid-20th century geometric grotesques, and visual environment of that era.
Although the characters were mostly geometrically constructed, and remain as close as possible to basic geometry, "STF GROOTESK Pro" includes a blend of stylish hints of hand-crafted lettering influences and intentional irregularities in order to tribute those classical geometric designs.
For extra additional emphasis the design tries to take advantage of a rather unusual vertical Uc>Lc proportion, with ascender parts of the 'Lc' characters sitting well bellow the cap-height, making the 'Uc' appear strikingly taller in comparison. Essentially providing the uppercase with a more "Condensed" feel. Some of the other characteristics of the design are it's sturdy and stylish yet clean presence, with little to no contrast, and it comes in bold style only. But to compensate for the lack of extra weight versions there was some serious time invested into additional testing and optimizing the entire typeface. So it is super well mastered and therefor extremely versatile.
That being said..
Looks can be deceptive at quick first glance, and this indeed might appear as being a very basic looking design. Even though this in fact is far from being just that other basic looking display sans, nor your next boring geometric grotesque!
From a FontStructor-perspective point-of-view I recommend to take a more ‘close-up’ view of the design's finer details. This creates a better understanding and greater appreciation for the extreme level of complexity that is present in both form and function.
Zooming-in on some of the letters would reveal the font's subtle, yet nuanced diversity of that 'previously' hidden underlying personal characteristics that usually remain invisible in text format at smaller point size. Now suddenly just its overall care for finer detail and overall quality within every bit of the design, the tons of custom shaping, stroke transitions and additional smoothing will gradually emerge as zoom levels get ever deeper. At its deepest level it will even shed some light on the surgical stuff that mostly works invisibly and without the awareness of its reader.
A display typeface at it's core, still it performs equally great in very small body-print text or web design application, as it does too in larger format for headings, ads or branding.
Thus providing, this very function efficient and reliable work-horse,
a truly genuine "one style fits all" typeface powerhouse.
And there its no question whether this could hand out "a 'one-punch' K.O." of a Headliner, thats obvious. But this unyielding bumpy behemoth just as well takes u for the long run, effortlessly telling you fascinating stories.
Especially well cared for optimized rendering on a computer display device, and deliver simple yet versatile seemless digital typeset material.
■ [ SPECIAL NOTE ]
A big thanks and 50% of the design credits for the lowercase 's' go out to elmoyenique
■ [ "Pro" VERSION EXTRA'S ]
The new "Pro" version update for GROOTESK utilizes several TrueType smart-font features and control characters to map two or more glyphs for combining glyph composition.
A sans serif display unpretencious font with a slightly futuristic touch. Readable even at pixel size, although its legibility decreases somewhat when used for long stretches of continuous text. "ff" and "tt" ligatures available.
PS: My huge thanks to Sed4tives for his much appreciated help.

STF_ELEGANZA (Therapy) ―Contemporary geometric humanist sans
A font style, that while simplified by old tradition, saw new light by modern sophistication.
It comes in a solid medium weight that is very suitable for body style text with good readability, but it does perfect clean headlines or ads as well.
The goal was to make a clean but somewhat more contemporary and playful take on a 'Grotesque' sans-style.
In an attempt to break away from the traditional trend of Grotesque type designs which evolved more around pure geometric shapes and aim for perfect circular, triangular or square shaped letterforms, that in return give many of them a somewhat harsch and featureless mechanical appearance, I choose to try and achieve the opposite, aiming for a softer, friendlier and more humanized feeling instead.
Dimensions: (in grid units)
X-Height: 1 .625
Cap-Height: 1 .875
Em: 3 .5
Brick Size filter: 2 : 2
This is the 'Therapy'-style in the 'ELEGANZA' typeface family. This version basically aims for the exact opposite effect than what the Tight' version did. The name 'Therapy' relates to its 'opened-up' appearence and the overall de-stressed propperties of this version. The more relaxed and spacious distribution remotely resembles the characteristic feel of a typewriter face. But the main purpose for this version is to create visual hierarchy in your layout.
