This san serif, textured, bold font is inspired by the old cast iron type on train carts. When I discovered the old train carts down at the 'Bristol Harbour Railway' I was fascinated by these incredible forms.
To create the structure of these characters I worked from one of the rubbings I took of a particularly nice iron plate and then scanned it into the computer to replicate the letters which where missing. I then printed this on to graph paper and transferred the bricks one by one to try and get the most accurate representation as possible.This is a clone

I spent the week watching 60's movie title sequences… something must have rubbed off. Thanks to Soma FM for the name.This is a clone

Inspired by toy race track construction sets. Although this technically qualifies as a stencil, you better have a laser cutter to deal with it.
Zoom in by Shift-clicking the PXL button to view the deets. All lowercase characters, but the caps are actually wider. It looks simple, but there's some advanced things going on to make this work in the 1.5 filter setting.
Special Characters to connect/extend letters:
_ = baseline connector
- = t-bar connector
/ = ascender connector
; = dip right connector
= = middle-e connector
\ = descender connector

Typeco New Wave makes use only 4 shapes and the gestalt principals of closure and reification to give the illusion of the shape of each glyph. New Wave is a fun Op art font that would be amusing to use for titles and logos, especially for retro 80's graphic design.This is a clone

This one has been called Nova. That is simply due to the fact that the letters A, N, O, and V were the first that I tried out when starting this typeface.

Concept inspired by the Budmo Family by Ray Larabie (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/larabie/budmo/), old wine bottles, nineteenth century sideshows/circuses, and Las Vegas.

Just another try to break the limit of bricks! B) Some letters may looks strange or bad and boring... So, I need some suggestions and font innovators here! :0

This is the 20000th FontStruction! meek, you must be proud. Your website, up to 20000 fonts! I have been
working on this for months and I believe it to be my most advanced work yet. Yes, my avatar was made with this a. Also, it's clonable.
I originally made this work under adl, but I left the account. So I got to do the very exciting task of having two fontstructor windows open at once and transferring the font from adl to demonics glyph by glyph. Oh, and I forgot to paste djnippa's tool in there first, so now I have hundreds of composites lying around in no order whatsoever. Silly me.
Wow, S v y are ugly. I'll need to fix that. Well, that's that.
Spacing is also a bit off and the font looks horrible in Word, for some unknown reason. I'll work on that issue.
I'm proud of myself because this is my fourth attempt at a large-scale faux bezier font and it might just work.
Lastly, the font's name progressed like this over the 6+ months I've been working on New Humanist:
New Humanist Rounded
New Humanist Bold
+new humanist bold
dm New Humanist
Just a fun fact.
Anyway, serif and non-rounded versions coming soon!
