Ever since I saw jonrgrover's "Heavy Chain", I wondered what forms of Celtic knotwork and chainmail weave could be created on a small grid. This design contains all the ones I have found so far. Feel free to clone this or make suggestions!
All these designs are 1x1 or 2x2; I made larger swatches to show how they tessellate and can form even larger shapes.
If you clone this, I recommend opening another new FontStruction at the same time, then copy-pasting the knots you want from the cloned project over to the new one. This will help reduce the chance that your creation gets corrupted.
An experimental take on Laconica with Celtic knotwork. I'm not sure how to balance it better than this... any ideas? I'll do all the glyphs once I have a complete set of solutions for them.This is a clone of Laconica
Modern modular geometric minuscule script style sans-serif typeface.
Geometric Art Nouveau lettering inspired by as well as trying to mimic Uncial & medieval Insular script letters!
I built diamonds sized according to the Fibonacci series, then made a segmented display out of them. The design was then carved away 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.

A font made to evoke magical talismans, wizards' engravings, Celtic/Viking wirecrafts, and all that good stuff! It has a pseudo-segmented display that draws lines between segments. It also slightly reminds me of the folk art which appears on crockery, earthenware bowls, etc.
The spacing is set so that 2 spaces is 1 letter's width. Use this to simulate a monospaced look when desired.
The lowercase looks like lowercase, but it is really an alternate set. This was designed to be written in one case at a time.
