This was modelled after the type of an old German typewriter, with some liberties taken to provide for modern programming languages.
12-point size is pixel resolution (the only one this font is designed for). Also works well anti-aliased at 9-points.

When I first saw about the new Nudge tool I wasn't sure how much it was possible to do with it. OH BOY IT'S ALL-POWERFUL

Blackletter with a fat inline.
A mix of traditional blackletter glyph, exploration and grid compromise.
I'll complete the missing numbers and hopefully all diacritics.

A swarthy and stout decorative script of humble origins. Gaze fixed on the far horizon, he readies himself to cast fortune on the seven seas. Every pirate has their beginnings somewhere...This is a clone

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 based on the Wolfenstein logo. It has lowercase letters only. The uppercase letters are used as ligatures / alts.

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

A blackletter/frakture font based on drawings from Albrecht Durer's "De Symmetria". The forms are designed to be compact, filling the space available, and so that they don't require kerning or letter-spacing. The display might mimic the lettering found in the Gutenberg bible, which would have employed a similar grid based type style to create a type similar to what might be found in medieval calligraphy.

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
