Going for an industrial sci-fi look. The hard angles give these letters the appearance of being made by some kind of tape or roller.
Like most of my fonts, this is made to have a constant height, with plenty of empty space between rows/lines to enhance readability. Accented characters might be completed at some point, but only if I can work their designs into the existing letter height. If someone asks for specific letters, I'm happy to add them!
This font was originally designed to be uppercase only. So, the lowercase should be considered as an alternate set. When I began this, only A and X had alternates. I started adding more for flavor, and the rest is history. :^)
Original size: 24pt (24pt, 48pt, etc. look most crisp when not using antialiasing)
Ten years ago, a StumbleUpon Fontstruct on April 8, 2008 has been one of the highlights of my life. Few things have provided so much joy and fewer things have kept my interest for so long. Type design has always been a fascination for me and the simplicity of the UI/UX of fontstruct has allowed me to explore all that I can imagine without getting in the way while letting me do as I please for the most part. In times of creativity, fontstruct was there to let it flow, and in times of personal lows, fontstruct was there to allow me to ignore that which was beyond my control. Furthermore, the overall civility and helpful nature of the fontstruct community is still one of the best on the internet. I have been using the fontstruct website almost daily for 10 years now and rarely do I not see something new that is amazing and awe inspiring. The creativity of the designers past and present is incredible.
I wish to thank FontShop for sponsoring fontstruct for so long allowing it to grow. Most importantly, I wish to thank Mr. Meek for creating and constantly enhancing this incredible gift of creativity and a calming haven for over-active minds.
Happy 10th anniversary to FS and all the fontstructors! Thanks a million to Meek and the sponsors. This is a wonderful trip and the future is infront of us, compañeros!
BTW, "Sorpasso" means "overtaking" in italian.
Thank you for this incredible gift that is fontstruct, Rob. Always a joy.
Congratulation on achieving the first ten years today (April 1, 2018).
Best wishes, as ever.This is a clone of tm Fest
An angular font with built-in ligatures for <f> and <j>. More punctuation and international support (hopefully) coming soon.
This font is kerned.
This contains the Latin and Greek alphabets.
See this font on my website at http://www.parallax.net.nz
2018-02-06 - First release with 148 characters.This is a clone of ASTRO-DYNAMICS-ULTRA-COMPRESSED
My second font.
I will make more requested letters or writting systems :)

It's a real pleasure to work now in FontStruct! And here we are a lot of new challenges too. PS for the beginners: Just only let the basic square and try the other bricks... It's amazing, believe me!
A display typeface (probably best viewed small, I'm aware!) based upon some physical type I made from dark food colouring etched into sugar syrup. This was to represent the brief theme I picked of 'unstable', hence why all the characters are completely induvidual in size and shape. I have also published a second version which displays what happens when the food colouring bled into the sugar syrup.
I decided to be laynecom for a day, and this is the result. Didn't have time for numbers and punctuation though, unfortunately...
Some alternates available in Extended Latin A. Suggestions and critiques encouraged, as always. Thanks and enjoy!
This one-eyed character set places one circle-serif to start or end strokes somewhere on each glyph (except "O") in the set...hence it's name. Angled serifs acting as hands or feeet (or tails?) are used elsewhere. This is derived from the base font (lc) I used for previous efforts. I made it tall and then thought Cyclops (for SerifComp) to use now since I never released it (full disclosure). Anyway, a different view of what serif can be :)This is a clone
G1 Radia. A scaled down version of an originally larger fontstruction. Lots of details with smooth micro bullnose serifs, high contrast stroke lines, and decorative ball terminals.This is a clone
G1 Valora. Extreme serif titling caps. Maxing out 48 brick height for Serifcomp. Not enough room for lowercase. Not enough time for more characters.This is a clone
elza: serif meets ball terminal... I found out the Germans actually have a word for this: 'Tropfenserife', which roughly translates as 'teardrop-serif'. Normally appearing at the end of strokes in letters such as a,c,f,g,j and r, I have tried to build this font around it, using it as its main design feature.
