My take on a thin sans.
It should cover all Western European languages (plus Hawaiian and Hepburn romanisation).
First pass at light kerning done, will be refined with use.This is a clone

SANS SERIFSCO — Humanist / Neo-Grotesque Sans-Serif
A contemporary neo-grotesque sans-serif design with regular weight.
I tried to add subtle diverse and nuanced visual elegance while still remaining minimalistic. Most significant feature is the subtle stroke modulations, distinguishing this from a more geometric style.
Designed to be versatile and suitable for a wide range of different purposes and optimized for legibility in small point size body copy.
The font was constructed on a large grid using linear interpolation (also known as faux-Bézier method). This allowed the most freedom for constructing more complex custom forms, curvatures and all the various stroke modulations.
The font has a total vertical height of 88 square grid units, this is including all optical compensations, ascends / descends and accents.

Can't wait to watch another film of Thor in the Taikaverse. Feels like I'm going to watch it about 50x, just like Thor Ragnarok.
Thanks to this competition, this font brought the challenge out of me. Believe it or not, this is the simplified version of what I wanted to make. Really nice set of submissions in quality and quantity from everyone for the Heavycomp.

Caps only font. You can use the glyphs placed at the lowercase to add a different second letter in pairs like EE, FF, LL, NN, OO, SS, TT, ZZ, etc. and to avoid graphic repetitions in a single word or phrase. Extra "c" at the "¢" glyph. (NB: To create this one I have greatly exaggerated the method used by my admired Beate -sorry, Maestra- in her font db Whisper, which successfully simulated hand-drawn letters.)
Tennessine: superheavy element of the periodic table named after the US state Tennessee. Symbol: Ts, atomic number: 117, atomic weight: 294. It is a radioactive element artificially produced by fusing berkelium and calcium atoms.

ABOUT THIS FONTSTRUCTION:
Grid: 17 × 16 square grid units (incl. descends, overshoots, accents)
Filter: 2 × 2 brick size
The idea was to come up with a friendly chubby fella.
And for all I know I think I have done just that. In the end, it does seem to appear it came out with a slightly bigger forehead than the average (but, no love was lost here, we have come to learn to appreciate the misfits).
Despite its weight and slightly clumsy appearance this juicy Mr. Boogie still got dat funk, and can not wait for it to be the next saturday night.
Even so, when he for once isn't told to "Swing and Boogie" he still is nice to have hanging around. His friendly persona is only to be matched by the ever so nice soft curves. "No sharp edges to detect here".
I can only hope for that all of you come to appreciate him as well! ;-)
(Let's do this in another language as well)
The idea was to make a letterform that has a friendly looking design. I tried to achieve this by way of softening all hard convex corners with a smooth rounded curve. And by "all" I litteraly meant, even on all diagonals, accents, thin strokes and stroke tips (Nothing was left untouched).
For all the concave corners, so the negative space (white space) of the letters have multiple solutions depending on what is happening (does it curve, intersect and or wether a stroke continues or not)
The curves all have near hi-res looking (a couple of minute imperfections) but otherwise smooth surfaces, and there are multiple custom created ratios/transitions, such as:
1.5×1.5, 2.5×2.5, 2.5×3, 3×4 (+ The bullet is a 7×7 circular dot)
I hope you like it,

BENGALIQUE - Contemporary grotesk type
A condensed geometric Grotesque style, that at first glimpse looks somewhat simplistic. And for the larger part this is true. The goal was to do a ever so slightly spiced up take on this 19th Century classic style.
At it's core, the letterforms have this strong geometric grotesque backbone that is easy to recognize.
While trying to preserve that unpolished characteristic classic Grotesque basic form, I attempted implementing some personal twists, hoping to make a more contemporary but faithful variation to it's crude classic renegade traditions.
Some of the more distinguishing features for this font are it's heavily condensed style, the somewhat quirky curvatures, overshoot and/-or tapered ends in certain 'sweet spots' on a glyph's leg or terminal.
At random some legs will also ascend and descend just a tiny tad bit, gently adding this extra layer of dynamic depth and playfulness.
Spurs are slightly tapered, counters, negative spaces are in mostly rectangular and do not mirror their convex outer curves, in fact the only concave curvatures within a partially enclosed negative space are those that have strokes intersecting or when a curved shape is used to replace diagonals.
(such as; "B, Kk, Ss, Xx, Y, Zz" numerals; "2, 3, 5, 8")
Note that a couple more unmentioned characters make use of concave curves as well to accentuate specific choices.
(such as; "R, t, ß, etc.")
Visual corrections and optical compensating was exclusively performed on the top part of the glyphs, not their bottom.
-- Some additional side-bearing and kerning is still required --

The font works best for 'Display Type' at most point size. In smaller quantities it can be used for 'Body Type' as well with some proper adjustments to the horizontal spacing. But, nonetheless the font's condensed nature, it's tight letter spacing and some thinner strokes still heavilly affect the flexibility for legible Body-Type-use.
Recommended size for Digital-Display-use is 28pts or higher, and bellow 20pts the font becomes unreadable in Digital-Display-use. But I hope you like it so far, and feel free to let me know what u guys think! ?
That's all for now folks..
Opening day of Ant-Man and the Wasp::Quantumania! So of course, this particular color font needs to emerge in this space and time. Spinning of the concept of quantum tunneling and Hank Pym's Quantum Tunnel van, this font spans multiple realms simultaneously. Shift dimensions at your own risk.

Thin sister of zenando, more legible for body text (even at pixel size), but with numerous differences on a lot of glyphs (it's a new font, basically). You can find an additional "$" in the "§" glyph. There are also new ligatures "ff" and "tt" which are in the places of "fi" and "fl". Enjoy it, please.This is a clone
MODERN TYPEWRITER - Typewriter style Slab-Serif
The idea was do a simple, clean and solid looking design that mimics the looks of a classic typewriter style typeface used for form fill writing style.
The rectangular shaped concept was carefully chosen to provide this nice mechanical looking forms, and to further enhance the technical style concept of this design.
Unicase font with alternates. Special characters: Blank space at the "\", "LT" pair (kerned) at the "fi" ligature and the "TJ" pair is at the "fl" too. Better to see the font at big size. Enjoy and Happy New Year 2023!This is a clone
REWINDER - A bold and decorative "I don't have a clue" style font.
Alternative lowercase versions for (a, c, e, g, j, m, n, o, q, s, u, v, w, y, z)
Usually I design fonts from a general concept I have in mind and start with the Latin alphabet first since I am most familiar with these characters. Then when I have completed these I start adding extra language support. letting everything evolve from there on out into the other languages such as Cyrillic or Greek. Doing it in this fashion I find myself having the best change of doing a decent job designing characters I am not familiar with the right way and in line with the design parameters.
This time I starten designing the Cyrillic alphabet first, trying not to think about the Latin set design at all. I did this in an attempt to have a neutral mindset that wasn't influenced in doing it a certain way.
And I must admit, this was the best and most comfi time I ever did a Cyrillic set. I experienced a sense of having a lot more freedom for creative output.
The result became this cool looking "hell knows" what kind of style letterforms. I have no clue if I actually did a decent and accurate job at the Cyrillic set, and I'm not sure where to go from here on out either.
I hope you like it so far
LITERA FACILIOR GOTI ― A 'Blackletter' script style with a twist
Also known as Gothic script, Gothic Minuscule, or Textura, was a script used throughout Western Europe from approx. the 12th untill the 17th century.
This FontStruction was aimed at mimicing the aesthetic approach of a ― ‘Textura’ variant of the Gothic Minuscule script style, more accuratly refered to as ‘Littera Textualis’. This style is most characterized by its strong sturdy letterforms, with distinguishing sharp, straight and angular features as oposed to the other variations in this catagory.
In terms of authenticity to the original predecessing formal script family, my ‘Litera Facilior Goti’ didn't took a whole lot of care for authenticity. The idea was to take a more independent and experimental approach to shaping the letters and forms, so it wasn't necessarily inspired by any specific typeface in particular, it rather recycles certain characteristics of a ‘Textualis Quadrata’, but beyond those aspects of general guidelines it evolved on its own.
Some of the areas where the design tends to really stray away from the tradition is for example the serifs:
It's often that I have some trouble with the weight ratio distribution of serifs and such elements in simplified modular based geometric Blackletter fonts. In many of such designs they tend to have been left pretty static and equal in thickness throughout the full character set. Which I think is often either having some letters look clumsy or even weird, and generally speaking also often making them appear too thick.
So this was one of the things I had to try and adress, I experimented a little with the style and forms of the serifs. Eventually this resulted in multiple deviations in variety to mix and create a more dynamic distribution. similar to what was done in less formal scripts. Over time they became ever further simplified, letterforms that involved less reorientation of the pen, in pursuit of styles that were quicker to write.
But taken as a whole typeface I find that it is having this certain ‘random-ish’ characteristic that is simply working for the better of these particular style fonts.
I'm still working on improving its overall rhymes and reasons to a certain point that is acceptable, balanced and with enough consistency. But up to this stage I personally think that the concept worked out quite successfully so far. And that even despite the fact that its stripped down of most ornamental decorative calligraphic extravaganza, it still managed to capture a convincing portion of that ‘Medieval ’ looks and personal flavour.
But I think that in the end this became a pretty neat looking font and it would classify somewhere between a hybrid mix of simplified Blacklettering and a drunken man's ‘Textualis’.

Don't worry, this is not a font, this is a picture game. Please, type any uppercase character in the user input window from A to T, then the same character but in the lowercase and then press the space before repeat the operation with other character that you want: Aa (space) Bb (space) Cc (space)... And... Surprise! Here you are my crazy pixel friends. After this, you can mix the characters and play a little bit more creating some funny "monsters": Bd (space) Hp (space) Pt... There are 400 variations to try. Enjoy them!
Inspired by the Logo of The band Scorpions first created back in 1975.
All other letters were built based on the letters in the original logo by me.
I found the original font of the logo, called "Lady Starlight" (you can check it out here:https://www.dafont.com/lady-starlight.font?text=SCORPIONS) quite boring and thus made this like a recreation. Hope you find it much more interesting.
