A new attempt to develop a clear & simple gothic font. I'm still not happy with some characters (T and Z...aghh)but i'm sure I'll figure out something to get this right. Any help is appreciated!!

Alternatives more classics to some glyphs: other "e" is at the "<" glyph, and another "r" is placed at the ">" one too. Hope you like it.

This Fonstruction was created in my first year studying graphic design at UWE. The design brief was to create a typeface using the key word; 'ornate'. I have taken heavy influence from gothic fonts and architecture, looking in particular at religion and religious texts.

I welcome all comments and constructive criticism, thank you :)This is a clone

I am a first year student at the University of the West of England. Our first project this year was to design a typeface based around a word of our choosing. I opted for ‘Pompous’, as it stood out to me from the list. During the project I visited Bristol Cathedral several times, and spent time in and around Bridgwater, looking at anything that I found to be pompous, such as cast-iron work and Baroque architecture. My final design is influenced by Gothic typefaces and raised lead tombstones/plaques. The name ‘Delectatio Morosa’ is Latin for peevish delight, which I discovered whilst looking at different Latin phrases.

My first Font. Please tell me if it's any good since I haven't done any serious Field-testing yet. There might be some problems with certain letters.

This is an old font of mine. Wow, it's more than a year old. Yeah I thought I'd share it with you. I'll make some extended latin and such now.

This font was based on the word pompous. It was created for a typography brief set in my first year at UWE Bristol. From the word pompous I was inspired to look at black letter fonts and ornate styles of decoration. Any feedback would be appreciated! If you use this font within your work please post a link with your final outcome, as its always nice to see your creation in action!

A sort of blackletter with no historical references.
0 is meant for layering of the drop-caps.
It needs extended latin characters and diacritics, but you can typeset Latin with it! :-)This is a clone

Inspired by the pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and the flying buttresses found in Gothic architecture and the calligraphic Gothic Hand, a young and undaunted designer set forth to minimize counter space and emphasize vertical height with only a few bricks. The result was a modular blackletter font with crossbars, serifs and finials embodying a sense of sideways movement. May the design gods have mercy on her soul.This is a clone

Frakture was a project for a typography class. The intention was to create a medium blackletter typeface that can be use for display. A lot of work is left to be done.This is a clone

Hunstrüct is my first attempt at designing a contemporary blackletter typeface within Fontstruct. The typeface draws inspiration from the long tradition of German Fraktur styled blackletters. The name Hunstrück is taken from a mountain range in Germany called the Hunsrück. Primarily I was aiming to build a face that would work well as a display type for gig posters and larger headlines but as I reworked the typeface I tried to strike a balance between text and display.
Big thanks goes to djnippa for his hard work in spacing this font properly.

This is my first fontstruction, so please be gentle :)
I made this as an exercise based on my own square-tip pen calligraphy, and it turned out to be some kind of "modern" blackletter.
