This might be called a "negative counter" design. Alternative 'Y' is on 'y'. Countercomp entry 2.
Inspired by the Maze Set. A technical fontstruction showing the usage for thinner macaroni bricks. The logic for possible counter relation:
1) Every letter is filled with thinner version of itself (self-pattern fill).
2) Outline vs Inline, emphasizing the "opposite" meaning of counter.
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

Gothic inpired font for Unburied game with monospace digits
Inspiered by db Jojo, a new poster font was created - a new FontStruct. There are many modifications regarding uppercases and lowecases.This is a clone
A font formed out of Truchet Tiles.
Truchet tiles are formed by taking a single tile composed of opposing quarter circles, then applying its inverse in a random fashion. Here, I've inverted the tiles to create outlines, then developed the negative aspects of the letters, thus creating a reversal of a reversal of a reversal! Boom! Now you're in the third dream level of Inception.This is a clone
Reverse in the visual context can mean many things. I decided to create letters and mirrored them, attaching them to a spine.The letters looked like filigree jewellery pendants.
I know that the I , T and W don't follow the design rule; I tried to align them on a spine but the result was unsatisfactory.This is a clone
I wanted to try some 'deformation' of the perspective used for italic glyphs. It was fun to try, the font looks amusing and the slants are irreverent enough. I know that a word processor could change Raysan into an italic style but a word processed Raysan would be too predictable and without creative spark.
Despite the purposeful changing of lines specially the curved sections which don't follow any "perspective rule" this font looks italic. It has a pleasant rythm in longer headlines etc, and gives eye catching 'splash' text when used with the parent font.
It took quite a while to finish, I constantly fought the wish to make composites and stacks to get the correct shape and directions into the curves.This is a clone of Raysan
Eclectic old-fashioned font with short ascenders and single-width proportions.
