Very stressful assembly of bricks, I thought I would not finish it on time. Uff! Some glyphs are still expecting to be included in the font. WIP, and kerning.
Sort of a semi recap of the lettering found on the second issue of Polish avant garde architectural magazine called "PRAESENS".
It got published throughout the first part of the previous century and was similar to other magz from that era such as: DeStijl, Wendingen & Het Overzicht.
It's not super accurate but still a fairly recognizable and cool looking type. I already made a pro version of this lettering in the past with FontLab Studio, which closely capturing the exact original design.This is a clone
Inspired by the Maze Set. A technical fontstruction showing the usage for thinner macaroni bricks. The logic for possible counter relation:
1) Every letter is filled with thinner version of itself (self-pattern fill).
2) Outline vs Inline, emphasizing the "opposite" meaning of counter.
Inspired by the works of regular_one. Unlike most fonts I've released recently, many of the glyphs had to be modified or even redone from scratch.
- M, W, m, w, @, #, %, <, >, ~, and the circumflex above accented letters were all too wide and had to be condensed;
- I, f, i, j, l, r, and t were all too narrow and were expanded a bit, mostly through the careful application of serifs;
- K, M, W, X, Y, v, w, y, 7, /, and \ all had ugly mixes of angles that needed to be redesigned;
- N, *, (, and ) were completely redesigned, and many more touched up, to fit better with the rest of the font.
Most of the edits made were not possible before nudging. It's still not perfect, but it's much better than it was before, and I'm proud of how much it has "grown up". Of course, suggestions and critiques are encouraged. Thanks and enjoy!
An attempt to make a very readable sans similar to what you would see on streetsigns, utilizing larger curves than the average FontStruction. Uses 3x3 curves on the uppercase and 2.5x2.5 on the lowercase/numbers. A few alternates in Latin Extended-A. As always, suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
This was another attempt at a clean geometric sans. It turned out a lot like fs vandyx, but... less "open", perhaps? Anyway, suggestions and critiques welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
Not sure what inspired this one--I think it actually started off italic, but it proved too difficult to FontStruct an italic like this back in 2014...
Create your own license plate! Surround your text with () or . Use '_' to get a truly blank space; use '|' for an uppercase middle dot, '\' for lowercase. Some alternates are available in Latin Extended A. Suggestions and critiques welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
(2017: I think this idea was sort of a spin-off of fs quotable. I was also experimenting with clean sans like this one at the time, which contributed greatly toward the design of the inner font. The () characters are new and a few letters (regular g, alternate g and Q) have been updated, but other than that everything's pretty much the same as 3 years ago.)
Here's what happens after I temporarily lose the ability to Fontstruct... ;) This started as an experiment to get around overshoots, but took of in a slightly different direction, with a touch of Uptake. Suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
(2017: Isn't it wonderful when you don't touch a fontstruction for 3 years and still don't see anything to improve? I don't remember why I lost the ability to use FontStruct—probably because of either a power outage or being in a moving vehicle—but I would guess I sketched this out in my graph notebook before getting back on the site.)
I wanted to try some 'deformation' of the perspective used for italic glyphs. It was fun to try, the font looks amusing and the slants are irreverent enough. I know that a word processor could change Raysan into an italic style but a word processed Raysan would be too predictable and without creative spark.
Despite the purposeful changing of lines specially the curved sections which don't follow any "perspective rule" this font looks italic. It has a pleasant rythm in longer headlines etc, and gives eye catching 'splash' text when used with the parent font.
It took quite a while to finish, I constantly fought the wish to make composites and stacks to get the correct shape and directions into the curves.This is a clone of Raysan
This fontstruction was made possible by several fontstruct special capabilities: connecting brick, brick stacks, custom bricks, and nudge. Out of 68 bricks used, only the full square brick is from the available bricks; the remaining 67 bricks are all modified in some way or another.
3 bricks tall.
I've been wanting to do this kind of font for ages, think of it as a soft square or a hard circle. Since it's been so long, I can't really remember the exact source of inspiration, but I do remember it had something to do with kix and his work.
The ability to kern now has obviously made the spacing better than it would have been otherwise. Thanks, Rob.
