Inspired by dpla's comment about an animation showing the transformation of a standard font into the shattered look of "Bruch 01". Such animation will be easier to comprehend if the non-Bruch design is reasonably close to the Bruch design; however the transformations won't be spectacular ;)
Although rather 'basic' this design would work well for such a presentation. Sadly I don't have an animation program to show this.This is a clone of Bruch 01
This seems to have taken inspiration from my First-TP-font "Sandor Basic Stripes" :) but was in fact inspired by shattered windows of a deserted building.
from the category of 'also ran'
Only interesting in theory; the practical application leaves a lot to be desired. Incomplete as well. Only sharing now because vacations are over. Back to work from tomorrow moring. Won't really have time to work on this in any meaningful way anymore. Unless inspiration strikes out of somewhere and I am able to stay awake past my bedtime.
Every glyph has a counter rotated glyph or has self rotational symmetry—all except the c, which remains a loner loser.

Full disclosure: This fs was started before there was such a thing as Reverse competition.
Side story on the making: This fontstruction is deceptively simple. It was quite a challenge to execute. Just because the strokes seem flowing doesn't mean they are all placed in the logical grid block. The rounded-off ends forced the bricks to be placed in any of the 8 adjoining blocks and nudged into place. Consequently, due to the nature of nudge only moving as much as half a block in any direction, some compromises had to be made in the shapes.
Entry for the Reversecomp. It's based on the theme of counterclockwise (anticlockwise) direction that is represented by an arrow. Also, Esrever is Reverse written backwards.
Bevel/chisel effect using connecting bricks.
Glyphs B,K,R,S,X,Z,k,s,x,z,2,3,5,7,8 miss cuts because of nudging space limitations.
Just keep coming back to these shapes...
Something between AT Schengbers and AT Thinnetry with some more experimental shapes. Spacing can be perfected of course.
I recently saw a type face with bits missing and thought "Looks interesting, can I do something with this idea?". I used one of my older sans designs but soon discovered that I needed serifs to get logic to the gaps ;) So I started work on a good serif design to use as the base. Here is my interpretation of what I saw, it looks rather different from the one that inspired me.
Slab Serif 300 as a stencil font. Bridges on the UC are vertical, on the LC horizontal. Bridges on numbers, symbols, punctuation are mostly vertical.This is a clone of Slab Serif 300
I once saw a Macula font's ad here in Fontsruct and wanted to try to make smth similar with Fontstructor, and so the draft has been laying around since February (see the image in comments). This work is based off that draft and is more or less consistent. The result is similar to Four's font Rock Paper Scissors (and maybe some other fonts). Thank you.
