Revisiting Celosia, this time with faux-beziers instead of pixels.
Alternate @ design on ©.
THE MOMENT YOU STEP INTO SPOOK MANSION, YOU REALIZE YOU DONE GOOFED UP. THE DOOR SLAMS SHUT BEHIND YOU AS SCARY PIANO MUSIC BEGINS TO WASH OVER YOU AND TERRIFYING KICK DRUM SOUNDS BEGIN TO PUMMEL YOU. WITHIN MOMENTS, YOU ARE DROWNING IN A SEA OF EERIE AMBIENCE. "WOE BETIDE THE FOOL WHO CONSPIRES TO TAKE MY RICHES!", SHOUTS A GHOSTLY VOICE SOMEWHERE BEHIND YOU. YOU TURN, BUT NOTHING'S THERE. BOO! LOL....................................................
Is it Serif or Sans? Western or Gothic? Double font or not? One thing is certain: This is not a time-travelling alien. Probably.
I decided to make a design which incorporated the thinnest/lightest weight lines possible in FontStruct. This is the result; I'll add more if people like it.
These 1/32 lines cannot be accurately nudged, so a unique line has to be built for each vertical position where I want a line. These lines also cannot be centered on a place where two curves meet (such as the middle of B or R). This introduces some unintentional asymmetry to the design, but I like it, so I'll keep it.
There is also the problem that forming a diagonal line of the same line weight is nearly impossible. While angled 1/32 lines can be formed, their angles are all close to 0. No method exists for making a line which slants at 45 degrees while also being 1/32 weight. So, I had to make some thicker lines in certain areas. I don't think they detract from the design, but if you scrutinize this enough, you'll notice them.
Inspired by a type identification request over at Typography.guru.
During developement, the tool has taken over, also helped by the scarcity of letters available in the original, making the design more sans than serif, and with strong MICR vibes in some places.
The name means "shoe shop" (also shoe repair or shoe making) in Italian.
At the moment the language coverage is limited to Western Europe.
A pixel font which combines four experimental techniques at once:
1. Structurally disconnecting the stems from the open parts of letters.
2. Allowing glyphs to extend beyond the reaches of width and starting position.
3. Designing glyphs specifically to connect and form new shapes, rather than simply allowing shapes to emerge from existing characteristics.
4. Designing glyphs so that the overall font is free of a need for kerning.
Alternates are now on UPPER CASE. I'll continue to update this as I get more ideas!
Original size: 6.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A slightly leafy engraving-style Decolike.
"thank god theres a copy and paste function"
i thought an isometrical font would be nice so i made one
wow i like 3d fonts huh
Bauhaus inspired geometric design.
I know there is tons of out there already, still 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
I saw a old poster on the internet and this is a remake of the font it used.
By request, a condensed and quirky outline font!
Original size: 7.5pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
Version 1.3: Added Polish.
This font used to be a normal Decolike... until someone decided to chow down on it! They seemed to prefer the taste of spurs, as all of them have been bitten off, leaving only semicircular impressions.
"Nervousa" is an anagram for "Ravenous".
This was a simple idea started from S and T. Most of the glyphs have two verticle strokes that are 4-bricke-wide and a 1-brick-wide area in the middle of the character. except I, L, S and T (actually a lot more). They are a bit different. Especially S, T and L. The whole characters are only 8 bricks wide. As I mentioned above, It's because the whole font started from these characters.
Straka the name came from last name of a person. The S and T reminds me of this person's last name. I like this last name although I don't even know him.
About the Latin extension, I have made only the glyphs that require no new design, just diacritics and already made letters. So I can pretend like hard-working on fonts but copy paste in reality. :P
Also, I made Arabic glyphs. Only isolated forms. Which I suppose won't be a comfortable experience to Arabic users. It's like every letter has crazy swashes but every letters are lightyears away from each other.(or is it?)
Credit me bcuz it took days and I gave it all to you for free. Unthankful hairless ape. :p
has it gone 2 far? hope it didn't hurt you.
I tried to make a font that mimics the minimalist design patterns of the late-90s and early-00s, as well as earlier grid-based works like those of Wim Crouwel. This is the fruit of that labour.
A semibold Gongclonker made to the same specs as the original - 5x5 with no wasted matrix.This is a clone of Gongclonker
AZUL is BLUE in Spanish. I choose the word blue because it always reminds me of ultra bold fonts. But i feel like just "BLUE" looks dumb so i choose "AZUL" instead. Btw blue in Chinese is "lan". Just imagine "LAN" as it's name lol.
Least important stuff :
I got this idea when i was thinking about if I design a poster for a JoJo character. it'd be Kira Yoshikage. And I was like "Gotta need a ULTRA bold font to show he's really danger" Now you know this totally unuseful thing :P
A little more important stuff :
This font is free for all use.
DO NOT PRESS THE B SYMBOL WHEN YOU USE THIS FONT. SERIOUSLY, DO NOT
lqi laugh quietly inside
Experimental 24-segment display or massive monochrome Mondrian matrix. Pixel compatible!
The thinking behind this one was that with incongruously sized segments arranged in the proper way, I would create a design which was effectively 5x5, but which accomodated more glyphs than 5x5 usually does. Negative space is incorporated into the structure of many glyphs, though not enough to classify this as an IVO design.
"Qualtron" is the name of an imaginary entity that a friend believed in - a being meant to represent the result of "a mathematical equation that can rule the universe". I didn't inquire further about it... :D
1. Segments can have interior length/width of 2 or 5.
2. The central 2x2 square must always remain open.
3. Square bricks and 90-degree angles only.
Original size: 20.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A decorative insular display font.
This is still a work in progress. I'm pushing the new bricks, stacking and nudging to the limit to create some nice flowing shapes. This is also a great opportunity to get working with some good kerning. Once I have the basic character set, this is going to be submitted to Google Fonts for approval.
This is a rendition of one of A. V. Hershey's dot fonts from his 1967 paper "Calligraphy for Computers", the "Cartographic" (sans-serif) font, plus a number of glyphs imported from the "Mathematical" font, as well as many additional glyphs drawn in the same/similar style to the original glyphs. This font actually dates to at least as early as June 1963, as it is featured on some diagrams in Hershey's "The Plotting of Maps on a CRT Printer" paper.
A classical option with a new point of view (the scrape). The LC is different to make more legible the pairs of equals glyphs like FF, TT, CC, OO, EE... IBYP because I'm kerning a lot of them.
Very stressful assembly of bricks, I thought I would not finish it on time. Uff! Some glyphs are still expecting to be included in the font. WIP, and kerning.
A funky idea that started with the A and expanded from there. Most letters are drawn by a single line winding around, although some are just not willing to follow this mantra. I found this half-finished while scrolling through my private FontStructions, looking for ideas for the CounterComp, and decided it was already an interesting entry :-)
There's an alternate, narrow set of numbers that can be reached with Shift+number (on a QWERTY, Dvorak, etc. layout); not sure which set fits the style better. Suggestions and critiques welcome for anything, and feel free to clone and poke around with it. Thanks and enjoy!
