A FUTURISTIC LETTER “A”!!

MY FUNNY LETTER “K”!!

AN OVER-EXTENDED EM DASH!!

WEIRD UPSIDE-DOWN CYRILLIC LETTERS THAT NOBODY’S HEARD OF!!

IT’S ALL HERE IN MY NEW FONT — ALDRON.

I THOUGHT THAT THIS FONT NEEDED MORE ATTENTION THAN THE ONE THAT I CLONED IT FROM, WHICH WAS MADE IN A COUPLE OF HOURS. AS WELL AS ADDING THE LATIN AND GREEK ALPHABETS, I MADE A FEW ADDITIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS TO THE CYRILLIC LETTERS AS WELL AS SPACING. AND UNLIKE ITS PREDECESSOR, THIS ONE IS KERNED.

IT WAS QUITE A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE, ACTUALLY, ADAPTING A CYRILLIC FONT FOR LATIN INSTEAD OF VICE VERSA.

CHALLENGE: EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN GRAPHICAL STYLE. WHATEVER YOUR STYLE, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT! MAKE A SAMPLE WITH THIS FONT TO TEST OUT ITS VERSATILITY!

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 3rd June

Great fontstruction @TH3 – definitely something to shout about, but maybe not literally

Comment by Rob Meek (meek) Wed, 3rd June

@Rob Meek (meek)

Haha I just hate lower-case letters. In my mind, there’s no reason for them. And I like the look and consistency of capitals better, hence this font. You might think that it’s harder to read body text that’s all in capitals, but that’s only because we’re accustomed to lower case — something that can easily be changed over time. Since this is my own font on my own page, I thought that I’d have every right to use capitals if I wanted to! Of course when talking to others, I don’t want to offend them, so I use lower case.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 3rd June

@Rob Meek (meek)

Also, have you considered adding kerning classes to FontStruct? I spent four entire days literally nonstop kerning this.

Edit: And my family probably think that I’m insane now.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 3rd June

DAAAMMNNN WHAT?? good works right there, multiling gang :D

Comment by JingYo Wed, 3rd June

WOW! This took a lot of effort… 11/10

Comment by BWM Wed, 3rd June

"A proportion of random kerning pairs do not currently work in the downloaded file — a glitch across all fonts that FontStruct needs to fix" I don't think kerning of mixed scripts work very well on certain systems…

Comment by BWM Wed, 3rd June

@JingYo

Thank you, спасибо, gracias, and 谢谢.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 3rd June

@BWM

Thanx. The scripts are only kerned to themselves. The punctuation is also kerned to itself and every script. Still there are discrepancies. It happens on every font that I do kerning for, that’s why I don’t normally do it. I even test it in a font programme, and there’s just no data for the pairs that I’ve noticed.

I’m not too concerned about it, though. I have every faith in the FontStruct team to fix it at some point. All of the proper kerning data is still stored in the FontStruct editor.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 3rd June

@Merrybot

Thank you very much. Yeah, the text markup is currently broken. I think that it’s been like that since Rob filtered JavaScript injections out due to my Rickroll.

Question:

Comment by BWM Thu, 4th June

@BWM

I don’t know of any languages that have a reversed “K”! I’d probably go for number one, though.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Thu, 4th June

Lowercase letters are not to blame, and it’s easier and faster to write - because they were invented. And traditions are traditions, because it’s not always so easy to change them (although you are right about the habit). Many Russian designers envy the smoothness of lowercase Latin letters, but we still have beautiful handwritten lowercase letters in italic. But maybe,
this unusualness just attracts, and the design works on this to play on unusualness. And, as I said, humanistic forms have more “souls."
Here is another font with such K - Rikos. Forms of letters are born by themselves, if necessary, so that you can not patent them. But they can become a style-building element,
the main thing is not to get stuck in one style forever, when there is no further way for its development.
By the way, since the font K is unusual, it would be possible to make an unusual Ф without ascander and descender (as I did in mortido), but you have already kerned everything - so you are unlikely to change it (and it’s not worth it). But I have to say, what are you doing in B S without optical compensation,
this is normal for a display (displayed in large sizes) font, but why then your Б is having so short takeaway?
I also made a clone where I tried the retro effects of the 80s - your font is great for them. Do you want to finish the new style yourself, or do it for me?

Comment by Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff) Thu, 4th June

@Merrybot

I’m not sure what you mean. I don’t think that weight has anything to do with how much kerning is involved. Be assured, there is A LOT of kerning. I have an unusual view of spacing — I think that no matter what, the left extremity of the letter should always touch the “LEFT” line, and the “WIDTH” line should always touch the right extremity. I do this so that it displays properly on web pages, and bits don’t get cut off — or the opposite: Too much gap before the first letter. I’m sure that you can see how much kerning is then involved when a letter like “Δ is spaced according to its diacritic.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Fri, 5th June

@Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff)

I have to disagree with you there. I primarily write in capitals; Lower-case letters therefore take me much longer to write out on paper. You know, the reason why I started learning Russian in the first place was through making fonts on FontStruct — it’s where I got introduced to the Cyrillic script (кроме логотипа «Аэрофлот» — каждый знает его)). I really like how a lot of the lower-case letters are the same as the capitals. The designers shouldn’t be envious; In my opinion, they have a stylistic advantage.

Про «Б»: ты говоришь о вершине? Я просто хотел, чтобы она была такой же длины, как и вершина «Г».

Мне нравится твоё clone. Пожалуйста продолжай с ним; я от FontStruct отдыхаю.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Fri, 5th June

@Merrybot

Ah, I see. I think that the font would need to be about double the size on the grid for the kerning to become ineffective. As you can see with: “AW”, this font has quite exaggerated kerning, even with its large size.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Sat, 6th June

Kerning level 100‽

Comment by Hensley Dodson (Hensilly) Fri, 12th June

UPDATE

• ADDED GERMAN AND ITALIAN SUPPORT.

• COMPLETED BULGARIAN AND MACEDONIAN SUPPORT.

• KERNED “L” TO “U” (AND ALL OF THEIR DERIVATIVES).

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Tue, 16th June

@Merrybot

Thanx for the chart. I actually found these very useful while making this font (although they didn’t include “Ѐ” and “Ѝ” for Macedonian and Bulgarian).

I know that French is a very popular language (I studied it for two years), but I don’t really want to include it in this font. I’m not trying to insult anyone, but I just don’t like the way it looks — the same goes for Polish, the last major Slavic language that I haven’t supported. Sorry to disappoint you.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Tue, 16th June

@Merrybot

I know. But ever since I find out about that one word it was bugging me that I didn’t include the simple alteration. It’s not the actual drawing of the letter that’s the problem, it’s kerning it consistently with everything else that’s already been kerned. That’s why I think that adding kerning classes to FontStruct would be a good idea; “Ѝ” could just be added to the same group that other letters are already kerned to (such would include: “И”, “Е”, “М”, etc.).

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 17th June

@Merrybot

Instead of kerning individual letters to each other, you kern groups, or classes, of letters to each other. So “V” and “W” would be in the same class, because their sides are the same shape, so they fit with the same letters identically. Does that make sense? “K” and “X” could perhaps be in the same class for their right side. “C”, “G”, “O”, and “Q” could be in the same class for their left side — because the shapes are the same. But most importantly, accented characters can be in the same class as the fundamental letter.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 17th June

@Merrybot

Well, the way I do it, those letters will pretty much always be a pain, yes ;)

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 17th June

I think the numerals might be possible to do, but let's see if TCM has the time…

Comment by BWM Wed, 17th June

@BWM @Merrybot

On it.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 17th June

@Merrybot

Thank you. I’ll finish them in a couple of days time.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Wed, 17th June

UPDATE

ADDED “(”, “)”, “[”, “]”, “?”, “!”, “;”, “*”, AND “•”. STILL NOT KERNED YET.

Comment by Hensley Dodson (Hensilly) Wed, 17th June

@MerryBot It's probably the nudging of bricks causing this. A little nuisance, but a small price to pay for full control of bricks…

Comment by BWM Wed, 17th June

@BWM @Merrybot

Correct. I nudged most of the round parts and accents. I feel so exposed.

This doesn’t affect the download.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Thu, 18th June

UPDATE

• KERNED ALL THE NEW PUNCTUATION.

• ADDED THE FULL NUMBERBET.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Sun, 21st June

@Merrybot

Yeah! I’m not happy with some of the numerals though, and it still needs kerning.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Sun, 21st June

@Merrybot

NUMBERBET

[ˈnɐmbɐbitʰ]
Noun

A collection of numerals, typically arranged from lowest to highest value.

Derivatives: “Numberbetical”, “numberbetically”, “numberbetinate”, “numberbetination”

See also: “Alphabet”, “colourbet”, “shapabet”

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Mon, 22nd June

@Merrybot

I made it up! :D

And the “i” is equivalent to “ɛ” in most dialects.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Mon, 22nd June

I wonder if it'll be added to the dictionary at some time…

Comment by BWM Mon, 22nd June

@BWM

“Dictionary”? Don’t you mean: “wordabet”?!

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Mon, 22nd June

@Merrybot

Yeah it does for your accent. But in New Zealand the letter “e” makes an I.P.A. “i” sound. I feel like I’ve told you that before.

So basically, we pronounce: “set” how you’d pronounce: “seat”.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Tue, 23rd June

UPDATE

FINISHED KERNING THE LAST OF THE 39204 PAIRS BY HAND. PHEW! THAT’S SOMETHING THAT I NEVER WANT TO REPEAT. WORDS CAN’T DESCRIBE THE PAIN I’M IN.

What a hard work here! And what about to add an spanish Ñ to the set? You can incorporate a new language to the list adding only one glyph... 

Comment by elmoyenique Wed, 24th June

Something like this.

Comment by elmoyenique Wed, 24th June

-a spanish Ñ- Sorry.

Comment by elmoyenique Wed, 24th June

... Hydroalcoholic gel is doing crazy things on me...

Comment by elmoyenique Wed, 24th June

Add the rest of Latin-1 Supplement except for lowercases and punctuation.

Comment by Hensley Dodson (Hensilly) Wed, 24th June

I think kerning works up to 65,535 pairs… After that, the kerning file might become useless…

Comment by BWM Wed, 24th June

@MerryBot 14.7k, but FontStruct can still save a font with letters outside the normal charsets…

Also, TCM has a capital esset at u+1E9E (ẞ)

Comment by BWM Wed, 24th June

@elmoyenique

Sorry, no more languages. It takes a considerable amount of kerning for even one character. You’re free to clone it and add to it yourself, though.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Thu, 25th June

@BWM @Merrybot

Keep in mind that while I did examine 39 204 pairs, not all of them were kerned to a nonzero value.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Thu, 25th June

@Merrybot

I did think about that, but you can just type out: “SS”.

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Thu, 25th June

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “ALDRON” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) Thu, 25th June

Congrats on the Top Pick, TCM!

Comment by BWM Thu, 25th June

Thank you. My fifth ever Top Pick! I can still remember my first, where I said: “I don't really know what [diacritics are] for”. Now that I’ve been using FontStruct for three years, I know only too well. Still, that’s nothing compared to the decade that users with the likes of “elmoyenique” and “Frodo7” have spent here!

Comment by TH3_C0N-MAN Thu, 25th June

@TH3_C0N-MAN - Congratulations on the well-deserved TP.

Comment by Goatmeal Fri, 26th June

@TH3_C0N-MAN - Thanks!  ;^)

Comment by Goatmeal Fri, 26th June

@TCM How do I input characters that are not on the keyboard into the FS User Input?

Comment by Hensley Dodson (Hensilly) Tue, 30th June

@Hensily Copy and paste them via Charmap?

Comment by BWM Tue, 30th June

It did work! Instead of right-clicking, I used Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V!

Comment by Hensley Dodson (Hensilly) Thu, 2nd July

I will clone and make my own.

Comment by Hensley Dodson (Hensilly) Thu, 2nd July

I love how you put a stroke on alpha and Russian A to distinguish it from lambda and Russian L.

when there is something to be improved, Ж can be similar to the funny K

@I19 TCM doesn't usually write "Ж" like his signature K

Comment by BWM Thu, 6th August

@I19 Did you mean that "Ж"?

Comment by Piotrkowy Thu, 6th August

Хороший шрифт, но восклицательный знак можно было бы сделать менее наклонным.

The exclamation mark is fine how it is. They are inherently supposed to be expressive. I gave it a slant to exaggerate that.
