This particular font was basically just an oversimplified version of Gryphon Serif. I called it "Tick" because it looked like a typewriter font to me, and typewriters make a ticking sound whenever you use them.
My new typeface 'Coup de ruban' represents the beauty of human movement through interpretive dance. I decided to name my elegant font 'ribbon stroke', but in French, as French is seen as a beautiful language. The thin, curved flourishes follow the movements of the dancer Megan Batoon's hands and feet when dancing to her own choreography. The thick strokes represent ballerina ribbon which ground the flourishes to create a bold, yet elegant display font. -Sam
This is a pixel font that imitates Romanian archaic font used 1830 - 1860 which is a Latin alphabet meant to look like Cyrillic. There are many other variations but I tried to create the one that is most readable as pixel font. It also includes Romanian Cyrillic symbols used until 1860. I have also included other latin symbols that were in use for example sound ă was not standardized so you could write it as ĕ ĭ ŏ ŭ and it would mean the same thing or previous to 1860 Romanian latin used accents (accute, circumflex and grave) much like French language does today. All those extra latin symbols are included. I do not know Cyrillic so my experience with it is solely based on what I read about Romanian Cyrillic Alphabet on wikipedia and omniglot.
Is not known when people in Romanian territory adopted Cyrillic. Cyrillic alphabet was created by brothers Cyril and Methodious during the first bulgarian kingdom and is worth noting that first bulgarian kingdom included the Romanian territory. Also note that term Romania(n) was used after 1400-1500s so previous to that the people or language was called Vlach a term still used today for latin speaking eastern europeans outside Romania. The first attested writing of Romanian language written in Cyrillic alphabet is from 1500s but by this time Romanian Cyrillic was quite developed and likely had been in use for quite some time already. During 1830 Latin slowly started replacing Cyrillic probably influenced by French language and culture and by 1860 Romanian Cyrillic was completely replaced by Romanian Latin based on French.
This font is based on Sierra sci fonts . It has nice gothic bold 8 pixel high (7 px tall letters and 1px under for ygpqj hooks which dip under baseline). It only has latin uppercase and lowercase and nothing else.
My initial research for this font was into the word gregarious. I started looking at the idea of things that group together; people, plants etc. I also looked at repetition in surface design and architecture. To me the repeated shapes act in a social way – grouping together. I started to look at ways of representing these initial ideas I had. I came up with the idea of using magnets to spell out a word and then pouring iron filings on top to create a social typeface. I got good results, so that was the basis of my font. The characters also look very organic which is relevant to the original theme of gregarious.
