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.
GOTHIXEL. A blackletter-style monospace font for small pixel sizes.
Gothixel's default tracking is not suitable for all-caps text. The capitals are slightly wider than lower case, so there is no gap between capitals. For all-caps, either increase the tracking of this font or use Gothixel Proportional, which is not monospace and which has appropriate space between all letters. However, Gothixel Proportional is further behind in development and doesn't have as many character sets yet.
Gothixel proudly supports Greek (including polytonic Greek!), Cyrillic, and, coming soon, Vietnamese and Hebrew character sets.
Please tell me about any mistakes or omissions you find and I will see about fixing/adding them. This font family was originally named "Blackletter RPG".
Monospaced typeface based on Otonokizaka Std II (https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/1399114/otonokizaka-std-ii), which in turn is based on the Love Live! logo subtitle, with slight changes making some characters more legible at small sizes. Can be used as a high-DPI code editor font.
EDIT 6th May: Added most of Latin-1 Supplement. A boldface version is now also available (https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/1401380/otonokizaka-std-ii-1-3).This is a clone of Otonokizaka Std II
050415. lowercase reworked with nudges and fin bricks. Uppercase added based on new modifications. 091415. updated M N W and g. g is my favorite. 100315. Basic symbols added. Quick text dump of quotes from Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers book for a sample image shows different sizes. The font name had nothing to do with the book, which was an interesting read nonetheless.
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
Inspired by trying to thread heddles on a 4-shafter .........
The design uses a lot of nudging, a little stacking and composites, using some of the exciting extended capabilities of the FontStructor.
The font's name is Maori and means "weaving".
This font is as finished as I need to have it at the moment. I'll add a few more glyphs later.
Again, I'm publishing this although it is not finished yet. Seems to become a habit ;-) Anyway, the name of this font is the German word for temporal paradox and this should illustrate the fact that I started this typeface as a Times alternative. As you can see, however, it took a very different direction.
I will add more glyphs in the course of time.
the study of crop (or cropt) circles :) some of these appear in ornaments. when i did that one, i felt many of the designs reminded me of crop circles. so i added a few more :) i've done a couple of other crop circle fonts. but it kind of seems natural to make crop circles out of circles (dots), doesn't it? i have also tried to show the progression of similar designs by trying to keep/group them together, but there are some strays here and there :)
Update of my other font with the rough edges cleaned up. Also has Lithuanian and Scandinavian alphabet characters (kind of). Recently brushed up a little more. Hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed making it.This is a clone of Fraktur mit Ligatur für Literatur
Blackletter, as small as possible, as elegant as possible.
Fun fact: The name Minotur came from the shortening of "minimal textur".
