042718. Opening Day of The Avengers Infinity War. It’s been a while since I’ve released a Superhero movie font, but this one brings to life my entire childhood exposure to the Marvel Universe. Over ten years now, each movie is getting deeper and deeper into the reality of each character. Looking back, I’ve got fontstructions for most of the Avengers: Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and now Thor, and Black Panther. All of them in tribute to these heroic symbols translated into glyphic abstract symbols. Thank you comic books, for drawing me into these creative spaces.
A tribute to Belgian modernist artist "Jozef Peeters" (Antwerp, 1895 - 1960).
He is probably best known for contributions to legendary Belgian avant garde magazines "Het Overzicht" and "DeDriekhoek".
The alphabet I made is based on the letters seen on the folder art for his 1921 linocut portofolio.
(I made use of a couple of lower case letters to make slight variations similar as seen on the original artwork but most lower case are simply copied from the upper case letters.)
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.
This font was originally designed to be uppercase only. So, the lowercase might be considered as an alternate set.
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.
Decorative or Cyrcus font? Just a simple font with Cyrillic. Track changes (short slider) for connecting letters. Bala is the first part of the word balalaika and Balagan, an early Russian cyrcus or an open-air theater (https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%91%D0%B0%D0%BB%D0%B0%D0% B3% D0% B0% D0% BD)

An angular font with built-in ligatures for <f> and <j>. More punctuation and international support (hopefully) coming soon.
This is my first attempt on drawing a blackletter-styled font. There are many alternates for I couldn't choose between some variations of letters--and some of the lowercases which begin the word look better without that top-left swash. Hope you like this font as much as I liked making it :D

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!
