RIBBON is a font designed to emphasize the little details in life that make things better. Originally just a doodle, the typeface evolved through many different styles and looks, before finally settling on the “folded” look, using sharp corners on letters and folds, the way a letterform would look if one really wanted to make it out of ribbons! I hope you enjoy the font and put it to good use on special occasions!
Around the time I made this font, I was under the impression that the internet is too full of people who misuse and overuse memes that weren't funny to begin with. See, I didn't have YouTube or any mainstream social media site back then; rather, I grew up on Scratch and mostly Flipnote Hatena, whose main populace consists of younger creators (or "jellyfish," as I referred to them, for going with the flow), so that kind of explains. However, FontStruct was different. I was never bombarded with trash memes the whole time I was on this site! To "celebrate," I spontaneously built this little fontstruction on a whim. It must not have hit me that that was because FontStruct isn't 50% made of 12-year-olds, or isn't built to make animations, or isn't requiring a handheld game console to create content for. I originally uploaded the font with this cringy description (warning, may not be factually accurate):
"People on the internet often think alike. Which sucks, b/c you don't often get to see creative stuff. A good example is scratch.mit.edu. It's a great website where you make games, animations, art, and other cool stuff. Then you can share these projects with people of all ages around the world. I encourage you to try it! However, Scratch is currently being trashed w/ uncreative humor animations that are all about 3 to 20 seconds, and they mostly use random glitchy humor, which takes no time to create. However, the community @ FS here don't act like such jellyfish; they don't go with the flow like other social sites. To celebrate, I have fontstructed this nice little font here! :)"
Uuugh, where did I get these opinions from??
Tpying "#" produces a heart and "%" gives you a smiley face. If anyone can think of a better name for this font, I'd love to know in the comments.
