This is my first FontStruction while currently studying graphic design at Bristol UWE.
Lots of experimentation solely using paints; quick hand movements and flicks to produce a messy, unrefined effect. Working in less than 1 second for each letter (with real paints), used as reference. Inspired by East Asian calligraphy.

Scifi font based on the Tesla Motors storefront. I wondered what a full font set based on that theme might look like. All caps, wide font, with open design and strong horizontal lines. This is my first font and I'm going to go ahead and publish it as it's pretty much done, but I might tweak it some as things go on.
If you use this font please drop me a line - I'd love to see how it's used in the wild... Hope you find this useful. Enjoy!This is a clone

Further exploration of the...this...style of type design. I was going to do the uppercase but then I realized that I wasn't. Go figure.
Q: What's with the name? A: At some point over the holidays, the movie Thunderball was on and I got to thinking about jet packs, Aston Martins, archenemies, Blofeld, SPECTRE and whether Miami is really worth 100 Million in diamonds or if it might have been better just to keep the diamonds instead of trying to save Miami. I mean, at the time of the movie, Miami hadn't even discovered cocaine yet and really wasn't on the map. If I were Blofeld, I would have picked an entirely different city to hold a bomb threat over. It was the sixties after all, take out San Francisco. Incidentally, at one point in the movie Bond finds himself in the Bahamas in the middle of a junkanoo, which is a kind of street fair where folks wear insanely colorful costumes (mostly of feathers) and dance around. Junkanoo! Now that would make a great name for a font. Much better than Thunderball. Is it too late to change the name?
Q: Your recent output - including this clodhopper - seems to be stuck on the 1.8 brick size filter, is your filter toggle stuck or something? A: Your Mom's filter toggle is stuck, buddy! And my next font will be called Clodhopper, and it will be yet another font built at 1.8 and it's going to be big and thick so you'll really feel it when I beat on your skull with it.
Q: Whoa! Touchy. Ok, how about that uppercase 'T', it's awfully funny looking, you gonna change it? A: Oh Boy. You just don't know when to quit, do you? The 'T' began as a spacing compromise but over the last few days it has grown on me - overtaken me really - like some saccharine soaked pop song that I hate but secretly love. So back off on the 'T', it's not going anywhere.
Q: Any last thoughts? A: Blofeld, Junkanoo, Clodhopper - all rad names for fonts that have yet to be born. Q.E.D.

An Art-Deco-inspired fontstruction I created in April. Not sure why I never published it, but here it is!
EDIT: Three seconds after hitting "Save Changes" I thought of the perfect name for this one. I've updated the name.
There's also an alternate 'a' and 'g' available in the IPA area.

An outline version of BlackRhino. And I'm aware of the fact that the "white" rhino is really light gray.

I really like the way this one turned out. It uses minimal grid blocks to achieve the desired effect (although at ~2x2 and the slivers and the pinhole dots, there are a surprisingly large number of actual bricks used per glyph than evident at a quick glance, although not a single overlapping brick is used without express purpose). I think this is my favorite of all the ones I've done so far. It is with nervous anticipation that I let it free. Go forth and propagate, young font; it's You v World!

Yes, I got the inspiration from the logo of the band Scorpions. But I have developed it, so they can not charge me with accusations of plagiarism. ha ha ha

Based on the Arancito fontstruction, a set of playful modular elements to create banners and borders, including a small collection of fleurons.
Upper case is for horizontal borders and decorations; lower case is for terminals; numerals and basic punctuation are for fleurons; @ contains the Arancito symbol.
This is my (small) entry for the FontStruct Illustration competition.This is a clone of Arancito

Inspired by the fantastic entries in the FontStruct Slab Serif Gallery, here's my first attempt at a Fat Slab. It's got hard hammered edges but with soft and rounded velvety serifs.This is a clone

Bold slab serif. Was originally planning this for the scriptcomp, but it doesn't really work as a script. Plenty of ligatures, though.
