STF_PRÆSENS - A geometric retro display sans
The source for this font was the lettering seen on the cover of 1930's second issue of "Præsens". A Polish avant-garde artistic magazine from the interwar period that was designed by the architect Szymon Syrkus. The letters on the magazine's title formed the baseline to extrapolate the complete font.
The magazine got published throughout the first part of the previous century and was similar to other magazines from that same era such as:
DeStijl, Wendingen & Het Overzicht.
a rounded unicase font... inspired by a logo...
may 2022: added latin extended, greek, (european) cyrillic letters. please tell me if i made a mistake there.
Made for FontStruct's Future Competition. This display typeface was designed with a little influence from stencil, this font has rounded corners intermixed with angular corners, and gaps in unusual places. It also uses the “two-storey” lowercase g, which was a challenge to fit cohesively within the restrictions I gave myself.
ASCII + Cyrillic.
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
Thin sister of zenando, more legible for body text (even at pixel size), but with numerous differences on a lot of glyphs (it's a new font, basically). You can find an additional "$" in the "§" glyph. There are also new ligatures "ff" and "tt" which are in the places of "fi" and "fl". Enjoy it, please.This is a clone
VEROORDEELD - A geometric slab serif
elza: serif meets ball terminal... I found out the Germans actually have a word for this: 'Tropfenserife', which roughly translates as 'teardrop-serif'. Normally appearing at the end of strokes in letters such as a,c,f,g,j and r, I have tried to build this font around it, using it as its main design feature.
STF_DIDUDE -A condensed neoclassical "Didone" serif style.
The idea revolved around the basic concept for didone style typefaces.
A genre characterized by a modern unornamented standard letterform that was very popular for general-purpose printing during the nineteenth century.
Main design parameters for DIDUDE are:
Typical narrow unbracketed serifs, vertical orientation of weight axes with strong contrast between thick and thin lines. So the majority of important features that really distinguish this genre I have tried to implement.
I didn't embarge on a quest to delivering a conceptual overhaul of this genre. Instead, the idea was to simply keep it faithful to existing tradtion. But, I did make 'some' personal design decisions that (i think) set this font apart from most more traditional fonts in this genre. Most obvious are its condensed style and the more relaxed contrast ratio I've choosen for this particular design.
I've also tried to include some extra personal touch to the stroke endings, which feature slight typographic decorative variations, such as occasional spurs, breaks, curved finials as well as plain terminals, there is even some ever so gentle height deviation and overshoot going on.
In addition to this there is a large character set that includes a little bit of everything:
Basic latin character set, latin-1 supplement set, stylistic ligatures and alternatives, punctuation marks, lining and non-lining figures, roman numerals, greek uppercase, mathematical, symbols and decorative shapes.
Only partial kerning is applied for now and it remains a WIP, more characters follow.
I hope y'all like it so far..

STF_BLAUHAUS - Bold Bauhaus inspired geometric typeface.
I know there is tons of out there already, but I had to do one myself...
It's far from perfect, but it was made on a very tiny grid space, so a whole lot of space to occupy with bricks wasn't a luxury this one! (I'll demonstrate a example below)
Still I think it looks pretty rad so far!This is a clone
Experimental endeavor into avant-garde, reversed-contrast inspired letterforms.
I will explain the font in more detail bellow in the comment section.
