let me introduce my personal CROSSOVER of "arial" and "times new roman", two of the most famous fonts of western typefaces.
nicely presented in a scetchy pencil drawn quickie style :)
it's just lower case yet, but i wanted to share it.
upper case, numerals and symbols to come. really :)
this is especially tasty in small pixel sizes! thanks for attention!

the DOT experience continues...
It gives you an unexpected kind of FREEDOM creating lines with dots.
This time i doubled the resolution by using 2x2 circles.
Finally your eye can help making curves of any size look complete and entirely smooth!
Oh my god...
I see more possibilities now than ever before!! That technique of "dotting", as i call it, will make my brain bust, i guess.
May the force be with me!

I intended to make some sort of an M.C.Escher tribute here. I'm sorry this isn't very complete and far from being perfectly well done, but it somewhat started to make me feel dizzy...;) And even though I'm not very convinced by this, I don't think I'd come up with a way better execution soon.
I hope for Mr Escher that there are better tribute fonts for him out there! He'd definitely deserve it...
It was by the way funk_king's Impossible Alphabet that reminded me of this unfinished thing laying around in my messy unpublished fontstructions box, and made me take it out and finish it. (If you can call 42 characters "finished".)

Periculum. Rooted in the latin word for 'Dangerous.' This was an experiment in using FontStruct without filters. It reminded me of why I use filters 90% of the time. There aren't as many solutions possible.
Periculum died after a bad copy and paste malfunction. The resurrection process was like walking on eggshells, but here it is. Lowercase was rushed a bit just to get it out there for Aphoria.
The smoothness comes with the combination of preview scaling and anti-aliasing. It has to be scaled at just the right size to look convincing for on-screen purposes. This makes it more ideal for non-print related usage.
101815. Symbols added. Preview looks normal on the font's page, but not on the 'Handgloves' listing.This is a clone

This is done under pressure of time.
There will be some more alternate glyphs, but i got to leave the PC now :(
Hope it's a well competitor though...

Well, apparently everybody here likes building letters... And I'm sure everybody got told at least once to finally shut down that damn computer while fontstructing.
Here's how you can go on tinkering fonts even with the computer unplugged!;)
I had carried this idea around with me a long time ago, doing some sketches, but abandoning it cause I thought all the thin and dotted lines would go beyond fontstruct's possibilities. Until funk_king proved me wrong... Thanks for the re-inspiration!
I think this is pretty self-explaining. Cut along the solid lines, fold along the dotted lines and put some glue on the shaded parts, put it all together, and there you go with your new toys!
Unfortunately it was impossible to fill all the inner sides of all the counters, but I tried to leave them open where you'd see it least. There might also be some bugs, I haven't tried them out yet. Pure brainwork so far... (My brain's still in the freezer to cool down a bit) In case someone ever actually uses them and finds something wrong, please let me know!
Hope you like it!:)
Check out the fill font if you wanna print your own custom-made design on the letters!

This took me many, many hours of trying, learning, erasing and restarting. Especially the design of the caps was hard; sooo many possibilities! However, i'm proud to present you my first real blackletter font :) I would like to add some more glyphs to the "more latin" set, but the size seems to be close to the download limit. It's downloadable yet, but i had to erase some glyphs...
there's an alternate "a" on "@",
and some decorative stuff on "#" and "*".

This one has been called Nova. That is simply due to the fact that the letters A, N, O, and V were the first that I tried out when starting this typeface.

Don't get this font angry. You wouldn't like it when its angry.
UC is cracked, LC is solid. Cracked period = ","
Cracked exclamations = "@"
Cracked questionmark = "/"

Decorative western/circus font, inspired by Rosewood, Zebrawood and similar fonts. The lc are with inverted fill...
Hope you like it! :)
Check out the stencil version of this too, for a more rugged style...

This my recreation of my own handwriting fontstructed with a vertical line/stripe pattern (I know it's bad calligraphy, but don't tell Claude Dieterich I did it, please).
I used a fountain pen 1.1mm stroke to get my samples written down in order to have a basis.
My UC leans slightly to the left and my lc to the right; must be the graffiti influence from way back in the day.
No wonder I only type nowadays...
13.09.09 alternative s added. located instead of the long s → Unicode:017f (Alt + 0383)

iCollect.it is a barcode (and text) version of the "Code 39 Barcode Specification" which can be read by most modern barcode scanners. I added lowercase characters for more readable labels even though they scan as uppercase.
*Notes: Use an underscore instead of a space (as space characters are always blank in a fontstruct). Place an asterisk before and after your string for it to be recognised by barcode readers.
Additionally, bracket pairs can be used for more stylish ends for labels etc: ()  <> See the examples.
Happy scanning!This is a clone

Another script experiment, again with a pinch of blackletter, but also with a solid lacing of rock'n'roll... For the fun/easiness of it, this was done with pre-2.0-features only. Funny how this already gives is an old-school feel. :)
A lot of refinement is still to be done... Suggestions are, as always, welcome!
And I will probably add some more latin characters soon...

A typeface inspired by the continent of africa, but mainly by the WorldCup of soccer 2010 in South Africa!
To catch on of the strongest associations for me relating to africa, i chose black and white stripes, maybe to remind of zebras or other animal patterns. But the effect also stands for the "swoosh" of a ball flyin by, for just the the "sporty" feel i wanted it to have.
There's an alternative "a" on "="

It's the official release day for the highly anticipated Halo:Reach video game on the XBox360! A great excuse to build a Halo related fontstruction. This one was inspired by two Halo 3 multi-player game maps featuring Spartan related technology: Citadel and Guardian. The patterned techno-motif textures on the architecture in these maps are impressively adorned everywhere. It's hard not to be inspired. The design just came about after messing around with some shapes yesterday. The alternates in the lowercase are actually the first iteration of the design, updates are in the uppercase.
Dedicated to my son who introduced me to the amazing Halo universe and encourages my love-hate relationship with the XBox360. He kills me. It's what he does.

Little experimental graffiti-style-font. Begin every word with an upper case letter, then write on with lower case letters. Use ) to end words, and add an asterik for some additional style...
hope all ya graffiti bros out there like it!;)

Inspired by minimum. This fontstruction employs a variation of the outstanding shading technique used by minimum on the bevel series.
