Apparently, it is quite easy to forget what gets a fontstruction going. Something about ultra condensed bla bla bla. The rest is just a matter of having a creative activity to occupy the mind. And if in the process you can help out a friend, all the better.
Introducing Caprine 1.3! Now supports Cyrillic!
Caprine is based on roller graffiti you can see in virtually any urban area. The straight and rigid lines and angles, along with the thick drop shadows make the face a real crowd pleaser.
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:

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.

This is still a work in progress. I'm pushing the new bricks, stacking and nudging to the limit to create some nice flowing shapes. This is also a great opportunity to get working with some good kerning. Once I have the basic character set, this is going to be submitted to Google Fonts for approval.
The idea is to represent counters with arrows. Letters with closed counters (e.g. D,P ) were first opened and only afterwards were represented by arrows.
Out of 111 bricks used, only ten are from existing bricks; all the rest are custom bricks. There would have been a lot more bricks if most weren't rotated or flipped.

042718. The Black Panther is the most dramatic Marvel film to come out yet. My jaw dropped when I experienced Oakland being represented in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And when Too Short was playing in the background I almost lost it. Wakened Forever! I’m sorry I didn’t create this for the opening, but here it is for Avengers Infinity War.
This might look familiar but it's different ). Unplanned 3rd entry. Dedicated to a Dutch city Enschede where I'm spending last hours of yet another family visit.
