This is my first attempt on drawing a blackletter-styled font. There are many alternates for I couldn't choose between some variations of letters--and some of the lowercases which begin the word look better without that top-left swash. Hope you like this font as much as I liked making it :D

At the end of October I decided to dive into the new Bricks 'Connect'. I started with the lowercase 's' & 'a'. Working out what the minimal size I could fontstruct it in, then expanded and condensed it from there to accomadate the rest of the glyths. You can still see these in the font above (Just before the Latin charachters. As I progressed I came to love the thin white gaps, and then tried to have every glyth with some element of the curved white gap in it. Some were more successful than others. As you can see, I have included the less preferred options at the end. I've also designed some of the final glyphs in illustrator, as it was impossible to have all of them with one white line, without help from an external app.
The most difficult glyphs to create and ultimately the most satisfying once completed were the 'V' and '~'.
I liked the look of final font so much, that I decided to create a whole family. Cableguynium 0 (which has Zero cables), CableGuynium 2 (which has 1-2 cables per glyth), and CableGuynium 3 (Which has 3-4 cables).
Unusually I struggled naming this font, I have early versions saved called Flowonica, Rubber Tyre, Ice Skater and Fibropticon, ..... eventually settling on CableGuynium as it was the most memorable.
ANY CRITICISM, GOOD OR BAD IS WELCOMED.

This is my own clone of the original version. It may look a little like my Kindegraf or Sketchy fonts, as it's my handwriting with a mouse, and I bet there isn't a lot of deviation there (with the handwriting) but it IS different. More characters would require more work. Happy to do it, but not for free.

Ideal for colouring in so it's a great 'tool' for letter work in playgroup and primary school with the added benefit of introducing the idea of serifs which links into historical lettering systems.
Aenvidere (the normal weight version) still needs fine-tuning and kerning, still. That will come, eventually :) At the moment I'm quite busy doing too many things concurrently.
Check the font description for AlexGar-Aenvidere for details.
At a later date I'll publish a squared-off version of this. Aenvidere SQ will have the same glyph style but will be wider than the other versions which might make it less useful as a "tool" to attract attention when added as splash insert in text that uses another Aenvidere version.
How to use:
Enter your text using lowercase then make another text field where the same text will be in uppercase, then make it semi-transparent and put over the first text.
A condensed neoclassical "Didone" serif typeface.
I have completed only the basic font so far, and there is only the bare minimum of kerning applied for now. More character, accent and symbols follow soon.
I hope you like it so far!
The painting in the sampler is from Wikimedia: the "Villa Petraia". I'll add more diacritics when I know which language(s) my friends want to see supported.This is a clone
For the moment this is the final version of Syngrapheis, reasonably extended. I'll add basic Greek and basic Cyrillic later because I think that the glyph shapes will look good in those writing systems. I've changed the 'g' since the sampler. I wish to offer this version to Google later so if you see any mistakes, strays or breaks etc please let me know.This is a clone
I wanted to try some 'deformation' of the perspective used for italic glyphs. It was fun to try, the font looks amusing and the slants are irreverent enough. I know that a word processor could change Raysan into an italic style but a word processed Raysan would be too predictable and without creative spark.
Despite the purposeful changing of lines specially the curved sections which don't follow any "perspective rule" this font looks italic. It has a pleasant rythm in longer headlines etc, and gives eye catching 'splash' text when used with the parent font.
It took quite a while to finish, I constantly fought the wish to make composites and stacks to get the correct shape and directions into the curves.This is a clone of Raysan
I love the traditional French biscuits made on the French west coast where Loire meets Atlantic.
The biscuits are thin, crunchy, light, not too large, not very sweet, melt on the tongue, and biscuits very like the original can be made/baked quite easily.
The traditional version has a limited range of letters, enough to write the name of town, manufacturer and product. I've been unsuccessful in finding an image of the font which contributed just a few letters to decorate these biscuits.
I spent some time looking at other type of the Victorian/Art Nouveau era until I had collected enough information to help me design the missing letters. I added the French diacritics, naturally. I think my additions look successful and the whole font looks quite Art Neauveau and in the style used originally.
The square brackets [ and ] make a biscuit shape when used 'blank'.
Bon appetit, enjoy your "Biscuit de l'Ouest".This is a clone of Petit Biscuit
