I didn't intend to make this all caps but I couldn't figure out how to do it properly without it looking a bit weird and unfitting.
Irix was inspired by a font I lost track of, so I wound-up doing something else.

It's very much like Metrolux, but futuristic and smooth. Contains a bunch of small changes too.This is a clone of Metrolux
WORK IN PROGRESS
This time I did a attempt to make a typical contemporary super rounded geometric grotesque typeface. Which is a very popular style for headline and display text. Although I tried to make a contemporary looking typeface, I kind of remained faithful to plain geometry. The design can be slightly compared with that of typefaces such as HAUS Sans, TT Norms and LL Circular (3 great commercial pro fonts that were made by some great other designers!)
One of the most important rules for this was to have near perfect circular letterforms in both upper and lowercase. (So to pull this off propperly it required a large grid faux Bezier approach.) Everything else just enfolded along the way. The design (obviously) geometric grotesque, but also has a neo-grotesque feel as well. The almost quirky looking letter widths give this a very strong early 1900s feel.
While many letters mostly have even stroke widths, upclose you'll notice some stroke width variation is going on after all. This to bring more conttract into certain area's.
It's still a work that is heavily in devellopment, and only the basic character design is completed for now. Next time I will get into its functionality such as multi-language support.
I hope you like it so far
Contemporary geometric Neo-Grotesk design, basically the one and only two design rules I took for this were to have at least the lowercase o circular shaped and keep the design grid as small as possible, which is 4x6 right now.
I'd say it isn't bad at all, I hope you too.. ;)
Logo font for the MSPFA comic I'm creating titled "Tellurian".
A little bit of a experiment in finding interresting letterforms in the most basic of geometric shapes and without the use of any complex fontstructing techniques. And the only expert mode feature used for this was making composite brick to get the different slants and stroke weights.
Bellow I will include some further in-depth info about this design.
But, I'm very pleased with the final result.
By request. This is the Shepard Tone of fonts - constantly rising and falling. Best viewed at around 2x Pixel size.
I was initially going to do a lowercase for this, but then the requestor changed their mind. So this being published as-is.
This is your medicine. YOUR medicine! So if you don't like the taste, maybe don't drink it.
By request, a decorative font based on playing card suits. This will be used by a certain group of card players.
It is not the most readable design, but these requestors wanted it to be esoteric. It's meant to have a bit of a "secret code" feeling.
I decided to make a design which incorporated the thinnest/lightest weight lines possible in FontStruct. This is the result; I'll add more if people like it.
These 1/32 lines cannot be accurately nudged, so a unique line has to be built for each vertical position where I want a line. These lines also cannot be centered on a place where two curves meet (such as the middle of B or R). This introduces some unintentional asymmetry to the design, but I like it, so I'll keep it.
There is also the problem that forming a diagonal line of the same line weight is nearly impossible. While angled 1/32 lines can be formed, their angles are all close to 0. No method exists for making a line which slants at 45 degrees while also being 1/32 weight. So, I had to make some thicker lines in certain areas. I don't think they detract from the design, but if you scrutinize this enough, you'll notice them.
This is dedicated to everyone who complained that they couldn't read my other fonts!
Mechanical Horse resembles the engravings which might be found on a mechanical horse such as the one from Vampire Hunter D. What qualifies me to say this? Well, I watched Vampire Hunter D a couple of times and have been speculating wildly for decades, which is more than enough time to get good at it.
Please exercise caution when handling Mechanical Horse. Its edges can be pointy.
What would happen if we combined a segmented display with a CACTUS? This. This is what would happen.
I took "Hypnoverse" and applied handwriting techniques to it. These figures are more like those I draw when I write with a pen, though still very distinct from my actual handwriting due to the low resolution.
This looks very natural to me, moreso than any other 4x5 design I've seen. It needs to be 2x original size or larger for the best effect, though, since its forms aren't nearly as open as the others. This may not be a problem for you... maybe I've just been staring at it too long...
At this point, I am confident that none of these glyphs can be improved further. The best they can do is change to suit someone else's preferences. Would you draw a particular glyph differently? If so, please show your ideas. I have gone over every 4x5 glyph several dozen times through as many designs, and think I have found the best solution for each - but maybe I'm wrong! I am especially interested in solutions for m and w; I have tried compressing and truncating them to be 4-wide before, but never successfully got anything that LOOKED like an m or w.This is a clone of Hypnoverse
A continuation of ideas present in Limbus, with a bunch of new ideas for good measure.
I saw Hypnospace Outlaw being played and the in-game browser font made me feel a bit neurotic. Here's a font that looks more like Micro Machina than it does Hypnospace Outlaw, but watching that game made me create this design, so I'm still calling it Hypnoverse.
To make this font look more distinct from other 4x5s, I condensed some glyphs (Lfjrtx) and altered others (QVbdgjkmpqvwy0469). These changes make this font very condensed and extremely easy to read at original size, even when sitting way back. However, they also make it slightly worse for terminals and chats in my view, since now smaller sets of glyphs are the same width (lines won't line up as much since more words and numbers will vary in width). So, whereas Micro Machina has a bit more regularity, this has a bit more style and takes up a bit less space.
If you came hoping for the actual Hypnospace Outlaw font, I'm happy to FontStruct it if asked. (EDIT: It has since been done by another user.)
A font resting on some columns. This was a doodle that became an experiment, so there was a lot of iterating.
I made the columns wide enough for a variety of different designs to be able to stand on them, so feel free to clone this and try your own!
By request, a semibold outline font with a halftone drop shadow. Although Pixel Optimized, it's made for large size display.
IT'S-A ME, IMPRESARIO!
