The legend of Shaq-Fu lives on!! What has changed? Well, it's 0-9! What else?This is a clone of Arcade Classic
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)
24-segment display. This one belongs to a small family called Calculatrix.
Like Calculatrix 12, this one is spaced so that every segment appears in its proper place, as if the text were being rendered on one giant display. (If using this in your own software, you will want to check the line spacing as it can vary depending on the software.)
I suppose this font could be used for weaving or embroidery work, as well... it has that look about it...
TIP: Try zooming out while already at Pixel size!
Extended version of B1 82 Segment.
If you are thinking "Why are there downloads if it is an ARR Licence?" Those were by me. And the large # of downloads on y other fonts were NOT me, they were my friends downloading it. Trust me, I sometimes download 1 copy (not like 500 million) of the finished update of a font after saving.This is a clone
An experimental 12-segment display, and my 100th published Fontstruction. It's the calculator of yesterday's future!
This one belongs to a small family called Calculatrix.
This font is monospaced to ensure segments are always where they "should" be (as if the text were printed on one giant display).
Alternate take on Nirvanite, this time with bullseyes rather than solid circles as the large segments.
This one is a lot more organic than its predecessor, but also a lot more confusing. Looks like clusters of alien tadpole eggs to me!
If this design is modified, it will break. But, it has been tested and seen to produce no graphical glitches.This is a clone of Nirvanite
Nirvanite Fossil with round shapes changed to diamonds.
I think this one is the toughest to read in the family - even harder than Nirvanite Pixel. Oh well!This is a clone of Nirvanite Fossil
A stencil design in which diagonal cuts are used to imply angles and curves. It does not quite obey the rules of a segmented display, but it tries its best!
This is inspired by some text on the side of the Sheepslayer Mk.2, a flying dragon car piloted by Lyll "Hatch" Soretti in my game Seven Candles.
15SEP2018: I have begun adding diacritics, but they must be made subtractively to fit into the design rules. I delete the diamonds around them which lends accented letters an open-topped appearance. This method is experimental but the result seems readable enough to me...
I built diamonds sized according to the Fibonacci series, then made a design out of them. The design was then carved away and modified to make the glyphs you see here. I used the members 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8. These sizes proved most feasible to work with in this sort of arrangement.
I gave the terminals a flared appearance which I think makes the glyphs look slightly Celtic. The design also makes me think of beach sand and things found on the beach - shells, pretty rocks, and so on.
Not to be confused with "Diamondized".
Want to see a magic trick? This font quickly loses readability when it is shrunk or enlarged from its original size! It's like an anti-font, judging you for wanting to use it.
I think this makes excellent placeholder text at small sizes, though to the uninitiated it might just look like blurry Braille.This is a clone of CelLCD
A 117-segment display made to have a more "mosaic" look. Try using this one at odd sizes, especially with antialiasing off! The resulting distortions occur in a consistent way which leads to many new uses for the font.
Original size: 38pt
