Dies ist mein erstes Fontstruct Konto. Interessant, ich war schon kurz nach Fontstructs Veröffentlichung hier. Hatte andere kreative Arbeiten gemacht und meine Fontstruct Infos in einem unserer alten Rechner 'verloren'. N8 macht nun experimentelle, schräge, kunstorientierte Glyphen; mein normales Pseudonym macht wie schon immer die "gewohnte" Mischung die auch auf meiner Arbeitsstelle brauchbar wären.
Da jeder Name eine spezifische Präsenz hat wird N8 weniger oft im LiveFeed zu lesen sein.
Momentane Geisteshaltung: seit einiger Zeit etwas kranker als nötig folglich zermürbt was positiv-kreativ denken beeinschränkt. *in memoriam Prof. L.Kampmann*
In this version of (°v°) wahuhi (Cherokee) the UC has a more distinct style and height compared to the original version wahuhi - 1. Removing the original notches makes it look more like well established fonts people are used to. Punctuation and symbols have not been changed.
Having said this I find that mix-n-match of the two versions creates an attractive line of text.
Had an idea about a very basic design, breaking expected lines but in a way that makes sense without getting predictable at first sight, and adding varying widths to look interesting rather than strictly measured and correct. Feel free to add more punctuation, more symbols, more language support.

This is finished as far as I see useful for this competition. Based on Spheretta 5.7 by arseniiv from 2011 which I cloned quite a while ago as the uneven spacing-positioning of the dots on the ring could be improved with new fontstructor's features. I sent him a message about my clone but assume he hasn' frequented FS for a while, so he doesn't know about how I developed his idea and won't see that I've used part of his design in my "future comp" submission.
Based on the Covid-19 situation I know of in north western Europe: CONFINED illustrates the limits this virus imposes on people.
Nightpegasus' creative activities have been curbed for some time; with addition of this virus scare comes lack of interactions with my small support group and my creative output is even more reduced. As far as my FontStructed fonts are concerned this has imprisoned my enthousiasm and attacked my confidence in my abilities ...
Note that this font still has more glyphs to come. One of these days, possibly in April but more likely during the summer break.
I have worked on aspects of this design for a while and transferred the best glyphs to make **Confined**, expressing my thoughts and feelings in this font. But I can't see yet how to get the many missing glyphs to match this style.
This was meant to create a seamlessly striped background carrying letters, but user input and standard text on font's home page show quite a distance between lines; in fontructor preview letter-blocks sit seamlessly on top of each other to create interesting high rise blocks-of-letters.
LC are 12 high, 9 wide but UC 'eth' is 10px wide. LC 6 px high, 9 px wide, but any glyph with a known curved base has the curve starting a half a pixel below the base line. Numbers start on the base line but have varying heights for effect.
Made for fun, I wanted glyphs with the look of 'construction' to write a name on a gift tag. Even though it looks simple like a child's work it required 25 minutes and several half-saves plus time to restart the computer after an annoying browser crash. This design will end up in my collection of pixel brick work.
My second font of this day. More elaborate and less decorative, but useful for invitations that look like printed with a strange dot matrix printer. So far I've enjoyed using Fontstruct and I'm sure I'll continue this unusual a creative work to make something useful and attractive for everybody who likes to have a choice of fonts on their computer.
This design looks chunky and earthy, as if poked into damp soil with the end of a broken branch.
*Just waving to my friends whose carefully managed wild garden allowed peaceful walks and discovery of nature and self, followed by great food, long discussions and fabulous music* This font was inspired by what I saw in your gardens you worked hard to make look as-wild-as-nature-grows-without-human-interference. I'll add necessary glyphs with diacritics should my friends and families ask for them.
