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.)
Gildor: A high elf from Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. He met Frodo, Pippin, Merry, and Sam on their journey to Rivendell. Gildor Grotesk: I considered the alliteration.

This is going to be my second entry in the "HeavyComp"
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 curcular dot)
I hope you like it,
(PS: Sample follows soon)

STF_LIQUID DISCO (Solid) - Sollid filled style variation on:
The "Heavy Competition" was the perfect excuse to finaly blow some new life in this older project.
This font family is a funky looking display sans. The original outline version was inspired by music advertisement and psychedelic arts.
This follows up on the first version with a rock solid filled glyph.
I hope you like it, cheers!This is a clone of STF_LIQUID DISCO (Outline)
DECO-TESK - Bold Art-Deco display style
Grid: 4 × 5 (small grid !)
Glyphs: 3 ×4.5 (+1 ascends & descends for punctuations)
My 3rd font for the "HeavyComp"
It's a all-caps Art-Deco display font.
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.
This font was created around the theme of decay. I took inspiration from shapes and forms within the pieces of a badger's spine and manipulated them to construct the alphabet. Here is my blog :) > http://hollydennis.tumblr.com/ website> www.hollydennisdesign.com
I cheated by using layers to create these twists.

This is my homage to the late Dutch master. I tried to capture the impossible geometry, sense of space, and even the colours of his works. You can see and download the new v2 here:

My final entry in the competition. Inspired by Mazey, zlabyrinths eYe/FS, and wavelength. Each glyph has its own maze, and each maze connects with the next. Tilde ~ and low line _ connect words, grave ` closes beginnings and ends, and the left and right arrows < > are for the start and end. There are also some alternates in Extended Latin A. Suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks!
04/06/14 The whole font has been updated to be one brick taller, and thus properly fit onto a grid. Also, some characters have been redesigned. V2.0
05/13/14 All punctuation has been modified to continue a word maze. V2.1
07/05/14 1000 downloads! Hooray! As a 'thank you', I've completed more of More Latin. V2.2
08/22/14 I've made the accents part of the maze. I've also changed a few characters, and added Œ and œ. V2.3
08/04/15 Added Polish support with Ą, Ć, Ę, Ł, Ń, Ś, Ź, and Ż. Tweaked a few characters as well, and added a crossbar to the ð. V2.4
06/18/16 Added support for multiple languages with more Cyrillic chars and punctuation. Also tweaked a few chars.
VEROORDEELD - A geometric slab serif
A digital monospaced font based on two simple rules:
Each letter can be written with one continuous stroke (hence the title)
Each letter must contain one diagonal segment, but no more than one.
