Previously published as a (non-Pro)-version with the same name.
But when that version eventually corrupted, it rendered it useless.
And after several repair attempts the innitial isolated "FS-editor" native
brick corruption eventually was fixed! But from this point onward all theFontStruct-generated-*.TTF-files downloaded from this particular FontStruction delivered a broken TrueType-font file, that upon its installation process resulted in having a error. Leaving me, or anyone for that matter who had downloaded it, unable to get it or its updates installed.
So after unsuccesfull struggling for a while I noticed that the cloned version didn't generate a broken *.TTF-file. So I decided to terminated the original FontStruction and delete it.
■ [ DESIGN INFORMATION ]
The main inspiration came from those early to mid-20th century geometric grotesques, and visual environment of that era.
Although the characters were mostly geometrically constructed, and remain as close as possible to basic geometry, "STF GROOTESK Pro" includes a blend of stylish hints of hand-crafted lettering influences and intentional irregularities in order to tribute those classical geometric designs.
For extra additional emphasis the design tries to take advantage of a rather unusual vertical Uc>Lc proportion, with ascender parts of the 'Lc' characters sitting well bellow the cap-height, making the 'Uc' appear strikingly taller in comparison. Essentially providing the uppercase with a more "Condensed" feel. Some of the other characteristics of the design are it's sturdy and stylish yet clean presence, with little to no contrast, and it comes in bold style only. But to compensate for the lack of extra weight versions there was some serious time invested into additional testing and optimizing the entire typeface. So it is super well mastered and therefor extremely versatile.
That being said..
Looks can be deceptive at quick first glance, and this indeed might appear as being a very basic looking design. Even though this in fact is far from being just that other basic looking display sans, nor your next boring geometric grotesque!
From a FontStructor-perspective point-of-view I recommend to take a more ‘close-up’ view of the design's finer details. This creates a better understanding and greater appreciation for the extreme level of complexity that is present in both form and function.
Zooming-in on some of the letters would reveal the font's subtle, yet nuanced diversity of that 'previously' hidden underlying personal characteristics that usually remain invisible in text format at smaller point size. Now suddenly just its overall care for finer detail and overall quality within every bit of the design, the tons of custom shaping, stroke transitions and additional smoothing will gradually emerge as zoom levels get ever deeper. At its deepest level it will even shed some light on the surgical stuff that mostly works invisibly and without the awareness of its reader.
A display typeface at it's core, still it performs equally great in very small body-print text or web design application, as it does too in larger format for headings, ads or branding.
Thus providing, this very function efficient and reliable work-horse,
a truly genuine "one style fits all" typeface powerhouse.
And there its no question whether this could hand out "a 'one-punch' K.O." of a Headliner, thats obvious. But this unyielding bumpy behemoth just as well takes u for the long run, effortlessly telling you fascinating stories.
Especially well cared for optimized rendering on a computer display device, and deliver simple yet versatile seemless digital typeset material.

■ [ "Pro" VERSION EXTRA'S ]
The new "Pro" version update for GROOTESK utilizes several TrueType smart-font features and control characters to map two or more glyphs for combining glyph composition.
Khnum /ħe.'nu:m/. I've updated this font, and given it an italic version, which is available on Font Library. There are three versions: Regular, B Regular, and MS Regular. B is for Bulgarian. MS is for Macedonian and Serbian. The inspiration for Khnum came from Media SA, which was my first large-scale font created many years ago. However, I wanted this font to be a non-modular font, so I re-created it on a small-scale.
Khnum has been updated and redrawn, and is now called Hhenum, which you can get on Font Squirrel.This is a clone
VOLLE BUISJES — Geometric sans-serif style
[ INTRODUCTION ]
This font had derived and materialized from my previous FontStruction called Buisjes, and had innitially been planned to be made into this “solid”-style instance that would've then were to be combined and included to the original master font. That idea was later canceled when I decided not to make this part of the “Buisjes”-typeface.
I still went on completed it though, but I was now simply treating it as this unrelated new font instead.
The original “outlined”-variant still stood testimony in this second stage of development, as it served as the global basic backbone for this. But, since it now no longer was bound by accurate representation I could start utilize more dynamic sculpting techniques and make minute adjustments that incnclude some optical corrections, as well as implementing a slight more polished looking geometry.
[ TECHNICAL BACKGROUND ]
I took a clone from “Buisjes” and started modifing it into this new solid style. What I basically did was utilizing the “brick swap”-method in the FS-editor to replace every brick inside the font's “My Bricks”-palette. By doing so, essentially converting the font one-brick-at-a-time into this 1 : 1 conversion of its source without making any additional changes to the actual glyph-contours.
After a while due to some undesirable result that came from replacing the original bricks the design took a different turn when I started realizing that making an exact 1 : 1 conversion into this solid style wouldn't generate the most desirable looking font. This new solid version that was rendered from the “brick swap”-process seemed to have several optical complications, that when compared to the original outline version, had quite the different effect on its physical properties as well as the aesthetic quality of the letterforms, and had far less visual appeal. These newly presented optical misfortune also had a direct negative effect on the font's legibility. In oder to gain a better understanding as to why it took a toll on legibility some additional thing needs to be explained first, to make sense of it all later. This explains in short the visual effect of added contrast that comes from that “bi-linear”-characteristic nature of the outline version, which employs so much more emphasis to the font's overall geometric properties of various form, and therefor to the contour shape of a glyph. In return this has a direct impact on the overall effectiveness of these forms.
The reduction of this additional contrast within the font's “positive vs. negative”-whitespace balance for the solid version results in a letterform that has a rather weak representation of its several typographic components as well as for each of the individual letter-parts that form a whole, which also help to distinguish one letter from another. In simple words this means that a solid style lacks a lot of that emphasis that is present in the the original outline version, and makes for a far less pleasant and effective font.
Another issue I had with the 1 : 1 identical conversion was the unanticipated but pretty drastic deterioration of its initial “wow”-factor in the solid version that was generated. No longer beneficiary from additional added value that came with a more “decorative”-characteristic that is present within a outlined glyph contour. Also the “bi-linear”-nature of the outlined letters sort of gave the impression it was putting double the emphasis to the typographic parts and the geometric properties that make up each letterform. The rather squarish “box”-like characteristics of the lettering became much more evident in the solid glyph face. Shifting visual focus from the previously more ornate display attraction away towards this more “mechanical”-style that is this rather plain and somewhat shallow looking flat faced letter.
All of these were things that worked out just fine in the font's outlined version, but not so much in terms of a solid “filled”-like style.
Here are some of the things that cause trouble within an exact 1 : 1 conversion into solid bricks:
• Enclosed typographic elements render much thicker than what is considered “acceptable”
(requires optical correction)
• Diacritics render too thick and often too big
(requires a complete re-design)
• Radius of FontStruct's default solid circle arc connection brick is too small
‣ Making a solid font constructed from these to look compressed
‣ Arc intersection point not sitting deep enough
• Reduced emphasis in depth of geometric form
‣ Simple rather “feature-less” and “squarish”-looking geometry
(both requires numerous custom composite bricks in order to break-away from these constraints)
— The combination of the above in terms of the appropriate adjustments required to make optical corrections in order for it to have balanced proportions will have such significant impact to certain aspects of the physical presentation of the letterforms that they no longer share that seamless overlapping cohesion, and it couldn't really classify any longer as being this solid / filled style instance to the original master font.
Essentially what this meant is that I have decided not to make this part of the “Buisjes”-typeface. I still went on completed it though, but now simply treating it as a new unrelated font instead. The original outlined version still stood testimony as it served as the global basic backbone for this. But, since it now no longer was bound by accurate representation I could start utilize more dynamic sculpting techniques and make minute adjustments. Include some optical correction, as well as implementing a slight more polished looking geometry.

DIDUDE (Condensed) ― Contemporary Neo-classical "Didone" style serif
The idea revolved around the basic concept for 'Didone'-style typefaces.
A genre characterized by modern unornamented standard letterforms, which was very popular for general-purpose printing during the 19th century. DIDUDE is by no means an attempt to embarge on a quest trying to deliver a conceptual overhaul of this genre. Its main goal was to achieve greater simplicity, without sacrificing that traditional neo-classical personality. Instead of leaning towards the typically more 'Humanist'-influenced style with distinct stroke modulations and proportional forms, geometry and symmetry were introduced to design this more simplified take on the traditional historical style. It has been crafted with a structural logic of its own.
"Less human, more geometry.."A fusion of geometry and neo-classical elements that blends the past with the present.
Main distinctive features for DIDUDE (Condensed) are:
Tall and narrow letterforms with short unbracketed serifs, vertical orientation of weight axes with a strong contrast between thick and thin strokes, slightly squarish-shaped round characters and its emphasized business-like nature. So the majority of important characteristics that distinguish the neo-classical style have been incorporated.
Certain features that were implemented into DIDUDE's design are somewhat setting it apart from most other, more traditional typefaces in this genre, and most notable is the more relaxed contrast ratio that was choosen for this particular project.
Further personalizing touches were made to stroke endings and curve geometry, providing slight 'calligraphy'-inspired decorative variation with occasional spurs, breaks, curved finials and plain monolinear terminals.
Topping it all off with an ever so gentle height deviation that sparks a subtle rhythm to any line of text. Last but not least, most of the optical clunkiness was addressed and either corrected or compensated.
There is a large character set that includes a little bit of everything:
Basic latin character set, latin-1 supplement set, stylistic ligatures and glyph alternatives, punctuation marks, lining and non-lining text figures, roman numerals, (Partial) Greek and Cyrillic, also numerous non-lingual technical, mathematical and decorative stuff was included.
Only partially kerning for now and this remains a WIP.
Nonetheless, I hope y'all like it so far..

───── 「 SUMMARY 」
This is yet another deep dive into the very small and tiny quantum realm of FontStruct's small grid and light-weight stokes.
Unlike some of my previous endeavours into this dark corner of the FS-editor, which could have dizzying complexity in forms, this project for once didn't stress the sh....*t out of me by stretching the limits for my capabilities beyond what is still comfortable this time. Nor did it drain every last frigging bit of my knowledge or clever creative insight to pull it off.
On the contrary,
For once it remained largely a pretty straight forward and easy project in terms of forms and geometry. The absence for most of the 'bar-raising' features such as diagonal forms, rounded, transitions or stroke modulation made this 'FontStruction' that much more easy.
And when metaphorically breaking it down to the bare naked form and necessities, this design mainly consist of FS's (default)-brick set, resized modifications of those, combined with a set of stacked composites.
There a still a number of things I'd rather seen differently, and will see later attempts at making improvement, but taken in a broad perspective most of the included material so far look pretty fine to me already. And to point out one of the things that is still bugging actually are the 'accented' letters.
Some glyphs have odd values for their 'character'-width, and this makes it impossible to achieve 'grid to em-square'-bounding box allignement in FS's editor. So accents in these asymmetrical values look slightly ofset.
― "Changing character widths to nearest even value is simply far too destructive to the stylish characteristics of the fonts appearance"
───── 「 ABOUT THE FONT 」
In the end it became a pretty cool looking light-weight geometric modernist sans-serif style that at the same time has strong hints of Art-Deco-style lettering as well.
And apart from the minor things it fell short with, I think there is a lot about its overall character-set design and forms that is looking pretty darn rad actually if you ask me.
Content-wise the font is a single case design in a 'all-caps' or Majuscule style. The (Lc)-string was kept empty for deliberately for the technical reason of preserving all the (default)-blank metrics data for any further design updates.

Fauxhaus — Geometric minimalist modernism sans-serif design
As the name already suggests, this indeed was inspired by the Bauhaus-typograpy towards functionality style.
More specifically by Austrian artistic polymath Herbert Bayer's 1925 experimental "Universal" alphabet.
The alphabet he designed became somewhat synonymous with the school's identity, and probably is the most well known Bauhaus typeface, and truly epitomizing that typical simplified "Form follows function" Bauhaus-minimalism style. It was also used for the new Bauhaus-building signage.
Some key features in Bayer's original form are those easily recognizable geometric sans-serif letterings, with letter composition based on strong basic geometry, having eliminated all decorative elements of the letterform composition for that crisp industrial, slight mechanical minimalist aesthetic. Bayer's original Universal alphabet also eliminated the need for a upper case letter, further simplifying it towards more of a functionality-driven standardization. Bayer developed multiple revisions and variations of the alphabet. Sadly Universal was never cast as a font, as during that era they weren't manufactured into printing typefaces, and the designs would only exist as drafts (as was the case with all Bauhaus-typefaces). Nonetheless it served as a lettering model for Bauhaus students, colleagues, and followers alike, and they were regularly re-used for signs, book covers and publications by many of its members, but even beyond institution walls the typographic style began to gain a foothold. Throughout the years we have seen a multitude of revivals and other Bauhaus-inspired typeface designs. Some of which that try to be faithful digitizations of the original, whereas others taking a more artistic approach to the style by providing their own personalized reinterpretation of the Bauhaus-aesthetic. So even to this day, many decades later, it repeatedly continues to inspire and influence designers time and again.
Bayer, First a student and later junior master of the printing workshop, was one of Bauhaus’s most influential attendees, advocating the integration of all arts throughout his career. Though not trained as a typographer, he was also assigned with the task of creating a universal visual & typographic identity for the school.—a task Bayer took very serious.Sparking perhaps the most mythic typeface to ever come out of the Bauhaus, which is "Universal"—one that at that time strove to be as idealistic as the school itself
[THE "FAUXHAUS" FONT]
This is an artistic reinterpretation of Bayer's "Universal" alphabet.
Aiming to preserve the unmistakable style and simplistic geometric stylistic properties of the original, while in the same time allowing a more 'free-form'-approach towards crafting the letterform compositions. This of-course as long as they remains in-line with the stylistic properties of the original. And for the lack of having a better explanation;
—To do sort-of a 'faithfully different' artist depiction of Bayer's original Universal alphabet.
Some notable differences made in Fauxhaus compared to Universal are the re-introduction of a upper case form and the slight de-simplification and inclusion of subtle decorative nuance.
In some cases I've choosen to compose certain specific characters to be more or less identical as to how Bayer originally intended them, whereas others may be entirely different looking. And for some characters have one or more alternative form as well. Some of which are more 'ad hoc'- compositions drawn as we went when new ideas popped up. But others were specifically created to preserve and / -or include certain distinctive and unmistakably identifiable letterforms from Bayer's original Universal alphabet.
Greek & Cyrillic characters included in Fauxhaus were solely added for my personal experimentation purpose only, and they serve 'zero' function as to additional language support of the font.
"Use at your very own risk"— as these could very easily be gone the very next update.
Each letterform was meticulously composed from a random collection of the various memories, which after some thirty Bauhaus-inspired and / -or -revival works including their respective 'shared' research I have accumulated over time for Bauhaus typography like Bayer's work.
No source reference image was used as guidance for creating this FontStruction, everything came straight from the knowledge I gathered from the many previous Bauhaus related projects I did.
So to draw solely from memory alone somewhat a convincing and reasonably similar personal reinterpretation of an original 'Bauhaus' typeface at this stage has gotten pretty easy for me.
For this project in particular I've choosen to construct the letterforms on a medium sized grid, using the linear interpolation 'faux'-Bézier method. So beware that when using this font at very large point size rendering the remnants of this process will become visible!
That's all for now, I hope you like it so far,

ALIEN WORMHOLE (BOLD) - Monolinear Sci-Fi-inspired 'worm' typeface.
This is a 'Bold' style version to the "ALIEN WORMHOLE" type family.
This version has a ton of extra character compared to the 'Light' version.
For now only the two 'Basic Latin' sets, some symbols and a small number of puctuation marks match. And it remains to be seen if I can translate back to the Light version all those extra's that were put into this Bold version.
I mentioned 'type family' earlier, but in reality there isn't a whole lot of family just yet. Since the two for now hardly correlate truly.

Stay tuned for future updates.
the study of crop (or cropt) circles :) some of these appear in ornaments. when i did that one, i felt many of the designs reminded me of crop circles. so i added a few more :) i've done a couple of other crop circle fonts. but it kind of seems natural to make crop circles out of circles (dots), doesn't it? i have also tried to show the progression of similar designs by trying to keep/group them together, but there are some strays here and there :)
STF_NEUE ISAIAH - 70's Art Deco / Streamline style typeface
Most of the design credits for this font should go toIsaiah Garciasince I took the liberty of revisiting her fontstructionFS Idea
Please check out this member's awesome contributions here:Ivy Meadows (Isaiah Garcia)
The one major difference between the two works is the grid size and construction method, Isaiah's version was made using a faux-Bézier approach (very labour intensive) and requires a fairly large design grid, whereas my version is a small grid design, utilizing the circle arc bricks and composites to achieve smoother contour quality, and was done on just a 4x7 grid using 2:2 filter.
This different approach and limitations in small grid designs have led to a number of small changes for certain glyphs. Also have I change some details slightly to my personal preference. But it remains very much Isaiah's design.
I tried to remain as faithful to the original font as possible, and in addition tried to further expand the character set. Most important differences made in my revision are the additional lowercase chatacter set (spurred strokes), the uppercase alternative forms / lowercase alternative forms (spurless) and extra symbols.

ZEPHTON (Pro) — 70's future retro / sci-fi style typeface
[ INTRODUCTION ]
A revival of the Sci-Fi lettering used by the “Atlantic Toy Company” for their “Galaxy Serie”. A science fiction themed toy line that was manifactured from 1978 to the early 1980s.
The lettering seen on their packeging uses a modified and filled version of a typeface called Paperclip Contour, which was designed by Dutch graphic designer Ad Werner, and was issued by Mecanorma in 1973. There is very little information provided on the web in regard to the original typeface by Werner. And even fewer images. Nothing that show a complete character set, only FontInUse submissions. But taken from the research I conducted I can safely conclude that the original Paperclip Contour typeface has just one style, which is outlined, and that it includes a lower case(a-z) letterset with numerals and just a had full of symbols and punctuation.
That being said, this actually is the second revision I did for the lettering. The innitial first version had a super basic character set, as well as a couple of mistakes included alongside some compromises in respect to certain glyphs. This was due to the limited knowledge I had in regard to the use of the FS-editor at that time. So the font wasn't 100% accurate. This newer version correct most of the inconsistencies that were present in the older version.
Due to the incomplete resource material on the original Paperclip Contour by Werner I can't check accuracy of this newer version. But I think that apart from the thicker weight in Zephton its 99% accurate.
Where the older version ran short by a lot, this new revision in fact can qualify as a full font, with everything from numerals, symbols, puntuation marks as well as accented letters for more Latin languages. And ever some glyph alternatives. Making this much more of a functional font.
[ THE FONTSTRUCTION ]
The font is a “Unicase” style typeface that has only “Minuscules” included. There are glyph alternate forms for several letters as well as a secondary set of numeral figures. These characters are located in the Unicode blocks for “Halfwidth And Fullwidth Forms” and “Private Use Area 1”
There is also a full (a-z, 0-9) alphanumeric set with “Contour Outlined” glyph alternative forms, which is located in the “Private Use Area 2”
The font saw a major update that tied everything together, and sort of finalizes the font for proper use.
Several characters have received minor adjustments in order to find a balanced harmonic distribution of typeset material. Also several improvements have been made to the overall shape and form of various characters. In addition to that numerous new characters been designed, expanding the character set even further.
Work also continued in the metric department, building the kerning table, that contains 2368 stored kerning pairs so far. Spacing was reduced by 50% to tighten the letter fit significantly. To round things up and convert it into a more functional typeface some of the characters were rearranged and/or relocated to different Unicode blocks.
[ CONTOUR OUTLINED GLYPH ALTERNATIVE FORMS ]
The contour outline glyph alternative forms are not 100% accurate conversions of their solid counterparts. This due to minor design difficulties that simply made it impossible to fully execute it at its current size and with this thin stroke weight. The deformities are simply the result of a lack in fully smoothened stroke contours in some of the transitions from diagonal to curved parts. These flaws are minute, and mostly only noticable at large size rendering, but nonetheless present. In small to medium size text these imperfections are hardly visible, and pose no real problem. Anyway.. the contour outlined glyphs are still very close approximations nonetheless, just so that it happens to be with a small number of tiny imperfections.
As a direct result of this the two sets with glyphs do not fully match and therefor not seemlessly overlap.
This can be ignored for most part in the majority of the font's application, but it does create two important limitations:
1) Contour outlined glyphs are unsuitable for vector path outline rendering when the stroke alignment is set to "Outside" (Configured like that with threshold for the corner point angle set to sharp these imperfections in the glyph contours can generate spikey disruptions to appear in the stroke rendering).
— So this configuration should be avoided.
2) The two styles are unsuitable (or incompatible) with stacked “multi-layer" overlay text compositions.
— Simply due to the fact the two variations aren't a 100% true match.
They do on the other hand, combine perfectly side-by-side in text composition.

STF ELEGANZA (Tall) ― Contemporary geometric humanist sans
A font style, that while simplified by old tradition, saw new light by modern sophistication.
It comes in a solid medium weight that is very suitable for body style text with good readability, but it does perfect clean headlines or ads as well.
The goal was to make a clean but somewhat more contemporary and playful take on a 'Grotesque' sans-style.
In an attempt to break away from the traditional trend of Grotesque type designs which evolved more around pure geometric shapes and aim for perfect circular, triangular or square shaped letterforms, that in return give many of them a somewhat harsch and featureless mechanical appearance, I choose to try and achieve the opposite, aiming for a softer, friendlier and more humanized feeling instead.
Dimensions: (in grid units)
X-Height: 2 .625
Cap-Height: 3 .125
Em: 3 .5
Brick Size filter: 2 : 2
This is the 'Tall'-style in the 'ELEGANZA'typeface family. This version somewhat strays away from the other two variation instances. Whereas the other versions had a simplified look, this version aims for the oposite and has a much more rich and diverse typographic design. Countless subtle extra little details have been incorporated into the design. The tall and condensed style provides a luxurity look. The main purpose for this version was to provide another level of visual depth and flair into your layout.
Some of the main differences made in this 'Tall'-style are the more complex geometry, other X-Height to Cap-Height ratio, extra characters and the introduction of optical compensations.
The other style variations can be found here:

FAKOS VARYTITAS - Futuristic Sci-Fi stencil design
A Stencil letter with a rather unorthodox form.
The main concept is that of the Sci-Fi / Tech aesthetic. But the asymmetrics in its geometry, various custom build curves and incisions somewhat tune down the mechanical geometric tone of the letterforms, and introducing a slight more humanized touch to its rhythm. These non-traditional attributes making this more of a novel stencil typeface with a strong personality.
The typeface was inspired by space age tech. Its a display style font that is perfect for when your project has to have that typical techy or futuristic aesthetic look. Its best used at large size, but it does work in smaller size format as well.
The font includes:
• uppercase, lowercase & numerals
• accented latin
• symbols & punctuation marks
• some glyph alternatives
• ornamental decorative elements
All "lingual" characters are functional stencils, the only exceptions that aren't stenciled are the ornamental decorative symbols and dingbats.

LITERA FACILIOR GOTI ― A 'Blackletter' script style with a twist
Also known as Gothic script, Gothic Minuscule, or Textura, was a script used throughout Western Europe from approx. the 12th untill the 17th century.
This FontStruction was aimed at mimicing the aesthetic approach of a ― ‘Textura’ variant of the Gothic Minuscule script style, more accuratly refered to as ‘Littera Textualis’. This style is most characterized by its strong sturdy letterforms, with distinguishing sharp, straight and angular features as oposed to the other variations in this catagory.
In terms of authenticity to the original predecessing formal script family, my ‘Litera Facilior Goti’ didn't took a whole lot of care for authenticity. The idea was to take a more independent and experimental approach to shaping the letters and forms, so it wasn't necessarily inspired by any specific typeface in particular, it rather recycles certain characteristics of a ‘Textualis Quadrata’, but beyond those aspects of general guidelines it evolved on its own.
Some of the areas where the design tends to really stray away from the tradition is for example the serifs:
It's often that I have some trouble with the weight ratio distribution of serifs and such elements in simplified modular based geometric Blackletter fonts. In many of such designs they tend to have been left pretty static and equal in thickness throughout the full character set. Which I think is often either having some letters look clumsy or even weird, and generally speaking also often making them appear too thick.
So this was one of the things I had to try and adress, I experimented a little with the style and forms of the serifs. Eventually this resulted in multiple deviations in variety to mix and create a more dynamic distribution. similar to what was done in less formal scripts. Over time they became ever further simplified, letterforms that involved less reorientation of the pen, in pursuit of styles that were quicker to write.
But taken as a whole typeface I find that it is having this certain ‘random-ish’ characteristic that is simply working for the better of these particular style fonts.
I'm still working on improving its overall rhymes and reasons to a certain point that is acceptable, balanced and with enough consistency. But up to this stage I personally think that the concept worked out quite successfully so far. And that even despite the fact that its stripped down of most ornamental decorative calligraphic extravaganza, it still managed to capture a convincing portion of that ‘Medieval ’ looks and personal flavour.
But I think that in the end this became a pretty neat looking font and it would classify somewhere between a hybrid mix of simplified Blacklettering and a drunken man's ‘Textualis’.

LEOPOLD PRO (Serif-Regular) — Modern geometric condensed slab-serif
This font is the second style instance for the newly launched "Leopold Pro" typeface family, and is kicking off this new family of fonts.
The first one came as a minimalist, geometric sans serif style, this second font adds a serif style variation to the family. Both the "sans-regular" and "serif-regular" styles have identical visual properties for size and weight to allow seamless combination of the two, and as the name already suggests, represent the "Regular" style for the family.
Motivation for this was to craft a slab-serif style for the original geometric letterforms that has strong antique mechanistic qualities to add somewhat of a typewriter characteristic.
The relaxed optical proportion, short unbracketed serifs and open spacing results in clean and pleasant to look at text. Largely thanks to these properties it is still relatively legible in terms of a slab-serif style.

LEOPOLD PRO (Sans-Regular)
Two additional extra "Light" and "Bold" weight classess are also currently in development, both remain works in progress for now, but are expected to be included in the future.
I hope y'all like it so far,
