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.
This font was inspired by crockery decorated with a name which I saw offered in a car boot sale. My font's UC has delicately decorated glyps, visible before food is placed on the plates; LC shows plates after the meal, with food remnants covering/filling parts of glyphs ;)
This is a new 6x6 pixel font with slab serifs on the upper-case letters with the exception of the letter"O", and half slab drop serifs on the lower-case letters again with exception of the letter "o". The numerals, except the zero, all have half slab serifs. All punctuations are without serifs.
Each letter is contained within its own box with upper-case boxes being deeper than lower-case letters, numerals and punctuations.
As you will notice I have used the new white bricks for the glyphs but stayed with the standard black bricks for the boxes. The white bricks are easily read by scanners which means they will have a great future in producing apparently blank bar-codes for useless pricing systems which are meaningless to consumers. White brick fonts are being looked at favourably by oriental, and other, manufacturers who see a great future in their use in cost saving printing of undecipherable assembly instructions.
This is not just another tile set that simply uses a wider variety of brick in each glyph. I added "twists". I wonder how long before someone notices ;)
This typeface converts your typing into musical notes. The idea is very simple and can create realistic looking sheet music. The font includes upper and lower case letters and numbers together with a treble-cleft with a time signature, a hash sign, dividing bars, an end bar and a double end bar.
Write your message on your word processor. You will need to use 48pt to have all the five staves showing up so keep your message short :)
Start each sentence with a treble-cleft which is the "&" key on your keyboard, it also adds a 4/4 time signature for authenticity. Upper case letters show as double notes, lower case and numbers as single notes. Numbers should be written with a comma "," between them eg:1,2,3 etc 10,11,12 etc 100,101,102. The comma inserts a short length of blank staves.
Now ...... comes the fun ! Count four notes and press the "!" key. This will place a barline vertically across the staves (the five horizontal lines on which the notes are written). Repeat this every 4 notes until you reach the end of the line then press the "." key. You must end with a full 4 note bar even if this leaves a space at the right margin. At the beginning of the next line press the "&" key to insert a new treble-cleft. Count 4 notes then the "!" key etc .... Repeat this process until you reach the end of your message, finish with a "."
Use this type face as a cipher to send secret messages which can be easily read by the recipient if they have this typeface on their computer. To anyone else this will appear to be sheet music.*° It can also be used to convert poems into a musical score, to rewrite the music of simple songs, word for word, or to compose original music. I am sure you will be able to find other uses also. Have fun ;)
*° Actually it won't appear as sheet music as I had hoped because the computer receiving the message will use its default font to print out the message if this font is not installed. That applies to all so called code fonts ... what a shame!
Designed for those members who want inspiration, it could guide them when they need ideas on which to base a font.
Use this like a font: close your eyes and type a 'word' with at least 7 letters.
If you can touch-type: forget it; you'll need to be quite unstructured in order to get a good variation of letters every time you want inspiration ;) If you want some uncertainty -bad spelling will be very helpful here;)- you could write the 'name' of the minute when you decided to get inspiration for a new font , inUpperCase ... then follow this with one of your names in LowerCase. But for fun and better chance at not getting the same word every time you need inspiration I suggest you just hit different keys and then look at the line of glyphs ;)
Just remember: use UpperCase to write the first part of this word, the LowerCase to write the other part of the word. Look at the [second or] fourth and the [penultimate or] third before last letter of your 'word'.
The UC will give you an 'image'. Your font will transmit the meaning illustrated by this letter (in the widest sense).
The LC gives the type of look your font should have. You now have 2 guides/ideas/starting points which influence the kind of font you make.
Remember that the UC should make you look at concepts, invisible messages and your own experience or lack of 'ken', as well as the visible things in the images I drew.
To express that differently:
Your font design is guided by a main theme (based on the UC) and a way to present it/a style of expression (based on the LC).The font will be influenced a little or a lot by each UC 'image'; you adjust the look of your font according to the "feeling"/a memory/a dream or wish/an experience/lack of familiarity that you have about what that which my playful pixel illustration represents.
The presentation of the font, the style, how the eye slides across to absorb information or spends time to investigate the beauty or quality of every glyph, is determined by the LC. Combine these two aspects from UC and LC, that"s what your font will convey through the shapes of th glyphs.
In my 'comment' below I give you a few ideas of what could be linked to each of the UC letters; it's up to your areas of study, experience, interest, and the time you want to use for designing and building your fonts, which -if any- of the proposed words and concepts I mention will be the one(s) you want to combine with the type of presentation you found in the LC letter.
Choose a good name for your font, it's probably a good idea to have a name that isn't the keyword I gave in the UC list -- I can imagine that those key words have long been taken by font designers for their fonts.
Note: the "INSPIRED FONT" is still in development; when I have more illustrations for objects, situations, feelings etc or styles of presentation (I am open to suggestions!) I will try to find a suitable design to add to the glyphs as there are still a few empty slots in the Basic Latin set ;)
..:*:.. Have fun ..:*:..
Kitay means China. Idea was to find chinese characters that visually look similar to latin letters. Some who tried it used letters from existing fonts, or chose different characters.
I hope the final result is 乚幺厶工乃乚幺 enough ). Letters V,v though, still need to find a similar character...

Equillan is a script inspired by a puzzle book I saw in the cafeteria at work.
It is a little rough but the idea is there I think.
Pixelated or 8-bit version of the Wingdings font. Created mainly as a font for Wing Ding Gaster from Undertale. This character set varies slightly from the one used in Undertale to fit my own visual preference. Only alphanumeric and regular punctuation characters are included.
