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
Umbriel is a moon of Uranus. It is named after a character in Alexander Pope's poem "Rape of the Lock."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
Unicase font. You can find alternates to "A" & "E" at the lowercase "a" & "e" (and their accents, of course), an additional design for the "Q" at the "q" and a "c" typing the "¢" sign. This font is directly inspired on Nickel created by the cool typographer David Jonathan Ross from DJR Foundry. Why? I don't know if this will happen to any of you, but me, when I stop to look at a font that I like, I find myself evaluating how the author has solved the usual "design problems". There are times when I agree with the chosen solutions (the most), but there are others when I think I would do it differently. This is the case. I wanted to modify a bit the general appearance of some glyphs of the font, especially characters like C, E, F, G, M, Q, R, S, X, Z and more, or the numbers and some secondary others. The differences were extensives and are more or less subtle in each of the complete set... And here you are the final result, I hope you like it. I've learned a lot during this experience, and FontStruct has been shown to be a very valid tool to work at this level. Thanks for read my little explanation and enjoy with this work, please.
Inspired by a font I saw in a children's book. The artist had drawn a map of the world on canvas and used a tiny serif font to label important points on the map. The letters had such a cute hand-made feel to them that I just had to recreate it in FS.
Uppercase letters are 6 grid squares (3 bricks) tall; lowercase are 4.5 (2.25 bricks). IIRC nudging had recently been introduced; this definitely would have been impossible without it.
This design was created as part of the TwentiesComp. Too bad, due to lack of time, it was not finished. I realize db Pontus still needs a bit of time and patience to be ready (glyphs, kernig etc...) However, I just want to introduce db Pontus in this context already ; )
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
More of an experiment than an attempt at an amazing typeface, but I thought it'd be a fun entry nonetheless. Don't let the creation date fool you: I started this design in early 2014. There were many issues that had to be remedied before publishing, most notably the lack of characters and major discrepancies between the shapes of serifs (some were entirely triangular, others entirely curved). It's still heavily a work in progress. Suggestions are encouraged, especially for the Q and punctuation. Thanks and enjoy!This is a clone
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!
