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.

|||||Português|||||Tipografia que simula escrita gótica, com uma caneta de corte largo. A altura das letras maiúsculas é sete vezes a largura da ponta da caneta. A altura das minúsculas é 5 vezes a largura da ponta da caneta. A inclinação da caneta é de 45 graus em todas as formas, à excepção das linhas verticais com fim ornamental, que têm a espessura da caneta. Esta é uma fonte para grande quantidade de texto, com alguma preocupação pela legibilidade e leiturabilidade, mesmo para quem não está familiarizado com letra gótica. Não é adequada a nomes ou títulos, completamente escritos em caixa alta.
|||||English|||||Script typeface wich simulates gothic script with a fountain pen. The Upper case letters are seven times high the pen nib. The Lower case letters are five times high the pen nib. The tilt of the pen is 45 degrees in all forms, except for vertical lines with decorative porpose, which have the thickness of the pen. This is a typeface for great quantity of text, with some concern for the legibility and readability, even for those unfamiliar with Gothic script. It should not work well with upper case names or titles.

Clone of xe Callig. A whole lot better than the original. I've made the lines bleed into each other.This is a clone of xe Callig

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.
We (the place where I work) are attempting to brand ourselves because our field is getting a bit too crowded and we don't want to get lost in the clutter. In the process, we are exploring a lot of different styles. Not that we are unsure how we want to proceed or what our positioning will be, we want to ensure nothing obvious is overlooked. In the process, a lot of ideas are generated, some discarded outright while others —as long are they support the planned positioning— are pursued long enough to recognize if they are worth exploring further...or not.
Some letters from this font were developed as part of one of the proposed wordmark. Overall, it works without breaking any of our internally established rules. The problem is one of extensibility and adaptability for unforeseen future needs which this font is prone to cause owing to its personality. The logo work was done in Illustrator, of course. However, to see if the typeface has potential beyond the few glyphs of the wordmark (and not in small part due to its modular nature), I worked out the remainder of the letters here in the fontstructor. :-)
I'd appreciate it if I could have your constructive criticism on each or any of the glyphs and how they could be improved. Specifically, I am trying to avoid awkwardness in the coming together of any two letters. As you can see, it's very much a work-in-progress.

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

Exactly one year ago two of my cousins, Chris and Cleofe, got into a dealer-loaned Lexus for a trip after their main car was being repaired. Cleofe's husband, a CHP officer, was driving and their teen daughter was along for the ride. While on the freeway, the accelerator became stuck and they lost control of the car. As the runaway vehicle sped up to over 100 mph, all four passengers were killed in a fiery crash in the San Diego River. The loss was unquantifiably devastating. This immensely tragic event led my aunt to testify before congress with damning evidence that would initiate the recall of millions of Toyota vehicles.
Requiemme Decorum was created on the way down to southern California for the funeral services. For Chris, Cleofe, Mark, and Mahala, may you all rest in peace and love.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...

One of my old designs brought up-to-date with FS 2.0
I have changed the name from 'RM Albion Too' to 'RM New Albion' because, whilst I liked the word play of the former, I thought it was a tad trite (and a bit Anglo-centric).

Yep another blackletter. This is my first font. I Love blackletter and its formal/modular structure seemed an obvious choice for fontstruct. I wanted something kinda simple and stripped back with caps that integrated well and didn't bring too much attention to themselves. That capital N brings attention to itself...

Little experiment of mine, trying to design a script font that really connects all the letters. As you might guess from the quality of the uppercase, I started with lowercase and had quite some trouble finishing the uppercase... And I know there are (obviously) always the connection strokes peaking out at the end any word, but funnily this imperfect look has started to grow on me during the fontstructing.
I also know there are still lots and lots of inconsistencies and letters that badly need a rework, but I thought the constructive criticism of my fellow fonstructors might be more helpful and efficient at improving this... So I'm grateful for any suggestions!:)
Oh, and yes: The kerning is very painful at times, but I can't see how I can improve that under the constraints of the script and the character forms. And obviously the script thing doesn't work with uppercase only text.

This is my first humble attempt at something blackletterish. It's the third clone of the initial starting point which was based on another blackletter attempt I did some time ago... Seems like I'm not much of a blackletter natural.:) I'm not completely happy with this one neither, but just pumping it out because i don't currently find any motivation or creativity to improve it.
Any suggestions for improvement are welcome! Especially for the T, that one gives me the creeps... And yes, I know kerning can get quite messy and is best done by hand.
