No Patrick, mayonnaise is not an instrument.
A jazzy, unicase, unique typeface!
i am posting this late at night, becuase i know due to time zones, it's morning right now. So, here i am at 1:14am, trying to post this late at night, so people wide awake somewhere else see this!
I noticed that among the various recreations of the original bitmap fonts for the Macintosh, this iconic design was missing, so I decided to fill the gap.
I used an image rather than the font as a reference, and don’t know the intended point size, the spacing could be off, and the number of characters is unfortunately very limited.
maybe i'll finish this; maybe i won't. probably not. y'all got any ideas for < and > ?
* edit: i noticed that this font looks very similar to 'jetstream' by @afrojet. frick. im probably gonna get in trouble for copying something that i didn't know already existed. tell me if i should make this private again.
This font is a result of the thinking "The punctuation looks niiice. Should I do a font to match these?" on tm wto font.
The letters were allowed to be as wide as they wanted. A lot (when it became apparent that many versions will be necessary to get the right shape) of the earlier attempts at forming the letters are left in the font.
This should have been a minimum font, but minimum can't do color.
The idea was to simulate transparency. After trying out multiple color hatch patterns, it was apparent that it is not going to work. The earlier attempts are left in the font for you to judge yourself their efficacy.
The file is pretty heavy because of having so many anchor points (times 8 layers). Scrolling will be slow. Because the next letter overlapping the previous hides part of the black outline, just outline glyphs are there to stack two layers (colored below, outline above) to get the correct effect.
Is there some trick to make the downloaded font to work in color? The version I downloaded comes as *-svg.ttf. Aren't the color svg fonts in .otf format? Thus, no sample.
Boost! is runic yet futuristic. I took inspiration from racetracks, traffic signs and vertical scrolling marquis. Caps only to keep the shapes consistent within the pixel art limitations.
Reference to a barbell. Use - to make a bar between disks. Uppercase is the left part and lowercase is the right part of the barbell. Ziltemir means barbell in my language. Used white colored layer to cover up some black spaces. Experiemntal work with some intersting potential
A heavy font but with strange coloring. Kalyn means thick, bold in my language
torra: Minecraftian for: hard, sturdy, solid
A font that will not fall down for the forseeable future. Not particularly readable. Made for the HeavyComp. For Minecraftian letters i e a o p t k f s h m n l r ts ks, use: " | - = [ n ] < ^ > r 7 l j v u.
It's called Choices because this basic idea lead to numerous minor iterations that completely changed the character of the...er...characters. All the unused possibilites are now sitting dormant in another font. Perhaps they will become a full font (or three)...someday.This is a clone
The thing about a square of the things that are about a square is that they don't tile as well as squares do.This is a clone
About name: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belka_and_Strelka. Also Belka means Squirrel in Russian.
Ailurophilia FS is a heavy display font shaped like heavy cats.
Ailurophilia means an affinity to cats.
FS stands for FontStruct, of course.
WIP for indefinte time :) But at least I found a suitable name for this experiment, Sushi is sushi but Sushilka means dryer in Russian.
Hard to believe that 10 years have passed since joining Fontstruct. The years have truly flown by and typography went from an unknown, to a delightful hobby. Many many thanks to those who helped me learn and grow on this platform, it's been such a fun adventure with such a positive impact. To celebrate, may I present "magenta" an art deco font for any typing needs. Please enjoy
This also marks a little turning point. The name "time.peace" was chosen at random and was honestly something I’d never been thrilled with. After much thinking, a new moniker is being adopted: "tortoiseshell."
"tortoiseshell" pulls from the tortoiseshell butterfly. Butterflys are seen as both symbols of time and of peace, making it a simple homage to the old title. There is another connection to tortoiseshell glasses, a style popularized in the 1920's, an era that has been incredibly riveting with its Art Deco movement. Lastly, there is a genus of the tortoiseshell butterfly native to my home.
"tortoiseshell typography" looks build upon old ideas while also growing and evolving into the future.
Cheers to the next decade and the new chapter~
Based on a concept of color density, the inner color is darker than the outer. WIP that needs further revisiting e.g. kerning, character refining.
Intertwined (impossible) letter O as a starting point for a yet another experiment. Emes is a word used to express negation in my language.
Welcome 2022! This experimental font is based on the concept of a hole in the ground.
