Experimental endeavor into avant-garde, reversed-contrast inspired letterforms.
I will explain the font in more detail bellow in the comment section.
Ahh sadly due to repeatedly running into a corrupted font when I save newly made changes to it, it eventually catching up with me and tested the limit of my patience.
I have had to painstakingly restore the font 5 times already since I started it.
So I stopped including new characters as well as making new changes to its existing character set. (At least for now)
Too bad because I wouldve loved to see this truly getting finalized.
So at this stage there are still a number of characters that remain in rough condition, and had yet to be further optimized.
The main A-Z alphabet luckily already was close to how I invisioned it, but especially the numerals, symbols and accents still have some rough edges.
Now, forgetting all that, I still think it is not a bad font at all. Everything is there for most common Western-European languages, somewhat still making this a usable font that I shouldn't be keeping in private!
I hope that despite my bad luck this time, y'all still like it.
About this Font:
The idea was to make a classic Didone style display serif that is meant for making clean headline text similar to those often seen in older magazines or newspapers. I set out trying to design a semi-bold & slight expanded looking letterform with thin hairline serifs and strokes. I choose a large grid scale for the extra freedom in custom shaping this provides.
Technique I used in this design:
This font in particular I have experimented with working within a "(asymmetrical-) Grid Scale ratio" ( 1,5:1 ), so, changing only the value for the Horizontal grid scale. (This distorts the grid aspect ratio, and is a great way to discover and experiment with getting new forms and shapes).
The 1,5 : 1 ratio was specifically choosen to keep maths simple, in order to rebuild certain required bricks that build specific slope angles , such as a 45° (which is no longer possible to make from the FS default brick set when using asymmetric scale ratios, unless making composites).
But what this also does is opening up a totally new approach to making shapes, and..becoming quite a surprisingly easy shortcut to get unusual shapes or make variations on these, even with as little as just the rotation of the bricks/selection. (thanks to the distorted aspect ratio) :-).
This is a must try for those who are into large grid designs, fake curves or interrested in experimenting around a little.
Isometric 3D outline style typeface.
The glyph have a exact copy slighly elevated and to the right of its original which I then connected with eachother to create the box-like three-dimensional idea.
Because of some serious design difficulties it remains far from complete, but I am kind of done with it for now due to this. For now only support for uppercase, no numerals and very limited punctuations. I think I fully kerned it, or at least everything that is important. On last thing I need to mention, the smallest open spaces doesn't allow this font to work in very small size. These will look filled at smaller point size.
I'm not sure if I will ever try another attempt to finish it at a later stage. (who will tell..) ;)
But I think what I've got so far is too cool for not publishing it. So for now it would do just fine as a logotype or for a decorative usage but not much else.
Enjoy!This is a clone
A futurustic typeface inspired by the classic NASA worm logotype.
Uppercase only, no lowercase planned!
Modern modular geometric minuscule script style sans-serif typeface.
The regular version for STF_UNI
UNI - is a all caps semi-serif 3-D outline display typeface that was aimed at college sports teams.
The font features 2 styles, regular & shadowed (cloned to a seporate fontstruction).
Shadowed version is found here:
Testing the new square connector bricks with a simple outline font.
I ran into an anomaly where one of the new bricks glitches out after saving. Easy to fix using other bricks, but I'm leaving it here to show some interesting effects the glitch is producing.
1. It looks like there is a boolean operation going on with it. Something we've been asking for for a while.
2. When grabbing the brick, it highlights an area of about 9 grid spaces, as if it were a group of bricks connected together. Another feature that has been requested for a while.
Anyways, the brick in question is the last one listed on the Bricks:Connect panel
Well break out the chimichangas and crisp high fives, it's opening day of Deadpool 2! Maximum Effort! This one's got a lot of holes in it. So many holes. It's holy crap! hence, the perfectly ironic name.
042718. Thor Ragnarok is the funniest of all the Marvel films. I can watch it over and over. There is so much respect for Jack Kirby’s art style all over land of Sakaar. Growing up I never really appreciated Kirby’s artwork, as I leaned toward more graphically detailed artists. It wasn’t until much later that I recognized his great contributions to the entire language of visual expression in sequential art. I’m sorry I didn’t create this for the opening, but here it is for Avengers Infinity War.
042718. The Black Panther is the most dramatic Marvel film to come out yet. My jaw dropped when I experienced Oakland being represented in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And when Too Short was playing in the background I almost lost it. Wakanda Forever! I’m sorry I didn’t create this for the opening, but here it is for Avengers Infinity War.
042718. Opening Day of The Avengers Infinity War. It’s been a while since I’ve released a Superhero movie font, but this one brings to life my entire childhood exposure to the Marvel Universe. Over ten years now, each movie is getting deeper and deeper into the reality of each character. Looking back, I’ve got fontstructions for most of the Avengers: Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and now Thor, and Black Panther. All of them in tribute to these heroic symbols translated into glyphic abstract symbols. Thank you comic books, for drawing me into these creative spaces.
