Part of my "Found Type" project at UWE where we had to design a font for a theme that we chose.
I chose Saintly.
Throughout my research, I looked at the architecture of churches, the similarities in there designs and how certain shapes could easily be recognised as being linked to that type of architecture.
I then started looking at Dante Alghieri's Divine Comedy and the illustrations by John Flaxman and Gustav Doré.
At first it became difficult trying to figure out how to implement this into a font, but then I took on a challenge,
Would it be possible to get Doré's engravings into the font.
Then another thought crossed my mind, how do images look when compressed to low pixel quality sizes and how they are still recognisable.
So I did that, I bought a book of Doré's illustrations for the divine comedy, and they started to build into the letters.
Each letter also has this Art Deco like area to it which went well for the Stain Glass Window approach I also wanted in the design.
It took a lot of practice to get this right, and there was a fair amount of copy and pasting here and there but overall I'm quite happy with the turn out.
I hope you all enjoy!

That's what you said to me once.

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

A custom font I designed for the title of my coming movie, A-236. The movie is set in a futuristic communist America, hence the dark and heavy lettering.
Let me know what you think of the font and any changes you would make. Creative critique is much appreciated! I plan on making more versions.

Cloned from dasuser's Deep Dish (based on the Mac font Chicago) and made it clean. I got the name 'Vado' from when I read the label on a pocket camcorder in my school.
You are free to clone this, I would particularly like to see one that has more glyphs.
Enjoy the font!

A new typeface featuring bold glyphs perfect for posters. It has a retro side to it, the origination of the name 'Retrotype' This will have several clones and makes my first typeface family. Like beate says with his db Backjumps, it's 'perfectly imperfect'. Enjoy my new font!
