Obviously dedicated to the great Sergio Leone and his Spaghetti Western "Dollars Trilogy" filmed in Almería. The uppercase was shot. Contains some extra western dingbats, keep your head down.
American frontier and western inspired display type.
Still needs a little bit of tweaking here and there. Also for some reason leading is not what it supose to be, it runs short a bit. But this is far from problematic.
A serif font with a couple of nice little touches to it. My original idea was to attempt to make a Donburi Serif, but about three glyphs in turned into its own thing.
Ten years ago, a StumbleUpon Fontstruct on April 8, 2008 has been one of the highlights of my life. Few things have provided so much joy and fewer things have kept my interest for so long. Type design has always been a fascination for me and the simplicity of the UI/UX of fontstruct has allowed me to explore all that I can imagine without getting in the way while letting me do as I please for the most part. In times of creativity, fontstruct was there to let it flow, and in times of personal lows, fontstruct was there to allow me to ignore that which was beyond my control. Furthermore, the overall civility and helpful nature of the fontstruct community is still one of the best on the internet. I have been using the fontstruct website almost daily for 10 years now and rarely do I not see something new that is amazing and awe inspiring. The creativity of the designers past and present is incredible.
I wish to thank FontShop for sponsoring fontstruct for so long allowing it to grow. Most importantly, I wish to thank Mr. Meek for creating and constantly enhancing this incredible gift of creativity and a calming haven for over-active minds.
Happy 10th anniversary to FS and all the fontstructors! Thanks a million to Meek and the sponsors. This is a wonderful trip and the future is infront of us, compañeros!
BTW, "Sorpasso" means "overtaking" in italian.
Thank you for this incredible gift that is fontstruct, Rob. Always a joy.
Congratulation on achieving the first ten years today (April 1, 2018).
Best wishes, as ever.This is a clone of tm Fest
G1 Obsidian Black. Created around 2009 and incomplete due to brick limitations, now updated with new bricks as originally envisioned.
(This font is dedicated to my dear friend Miguel and his wife María. Miguel just died on 26/may/2012. ¡Nunca te olvidaremos, compañero!)
Work in progress (kerning and more glyphs to come).
My first entry for Serifcomp. Originally created in 2013, when I still had little knowledge about the finer details of type design. I've made major changes to the original design while trying not to lose its original feel (avoiding diagonal strokes, for example). I ended up making major changes to M, Q, T, W, f, k, m, q, r, t, and w, and minor changes to a bunch more; a ton of kerning was also required. It's not very polished yet, but it's a start...
Some alternates are available in Latin Extended A. As always, suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
