A small-grid font with character.
- No angles.
- Asymmetry should be present wherever feasible.
A rounded, incised, spurless sci-fi design with a heavy emphasis on visual balance. Language support is in progress.
Irix was inspired by a font I lost track of, so I wound-up doing something else.

I went and mangled Spelunker by Zephram. I am messing with the shapes of the spaces between the letters. The name of the font indicates that most of the letters are wearing bell bottoms.This is a clone of Spelunker
Experimental brush/pen thing. Has a slightly spooky look. Because of their tapering curves, many glyphs can render with a "split" or "stencil" look about them. This is due to software-imposed limitations on vector rendering. Designs which share this property can be considered Pseudostencils.
This design is not informed or inspired by any existing typographical traditions. I set out to make the "claw" bricks (as I call them) into a font and this is the result.
Stemless superminimal 2x2. It's small yet bold, much like Napoleon!
I wondered what a plain version of Candylander would look like, so I made this. :D
I think a fully half-arc version could look even more stylish than this! Hope to find time to create one soon. (EDIT: Done, see Migrator)This is a clone of Candylander
An attempt to make a "classroom" font. It reminds me of a font style which was once commonly used on magnetic letters.

A half-sized, filterless version of Comicool Unicase which also has square terminals.
This has lowercase, but is made for all-caps comic book style lettering, so consider the lowercase as something added for accessibility's sake...
An experiment which attempts to harmonize soft curves and straight lines while eschewing angles. The result is this "inkflow" design. What is the opposite of an inktrap? I don't know, so I'm calling it inkflow.
This could also be viewed as a hybridization of neon-style lettering and normal sans serif... it is not quite made to be either one, but could act as a decent companion font to them. Most neon fonts need a larger size and are thus more suited to headers, while this design is well suited to body text.
This could also ALSO be considered a Hybrid because it works as both a pixel font and a high-res one.
A font which looks like a board game. It has no relation to Conway's Game of Life, although that may change. :D
Another of my many doodles. Fun to make!
Finally, a design where all the diacritics blend in and look natural!
Another rounded sans-serif. Gives me a slight "noir" feeling.
The shapes and spacings were fine-tuned to look good at every legible size, with every letter having a constant width (except "I") and standing distinct from its neighbors.
"X" makes four undesired bends, "V" is too sharp for my liking, and "Y" is a bit too short. But I have tinkered with composite pieces trying to fix them for hours now. Maybe someone else has the patience to continue on...
Neon-style lettering in 5x5. I tried to keep the considerations of neon tubes in mind. Most forms are simple and several of them get repurposed for other glyphs. Further, the bends which would occur in actual neon tubing were taken into account while routing each glyph.
A closer look will find some advanced glyphs which would have to be produced by a master glassblower in order to work as neon fixtures (such as DHJKXOQ08*#+).
This is spaced like a pixel font so that it can be used as one. Fonts which work especially well in both pixel and high-res mediums can be considered Hybrids.
"Lightened Son" is an anagram for "Neon Delights".
Idea for Improvement: A wiring solution - some system designed to be on a layer behind the letters so that they look convincingly wired up.

A 7x7 outline design which is made to form solid-looking masses from the glyphs while still allowing the outer perimeters of words to take on some unique shapes.
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A rounded version of Pixelcruiser Flagship. I think rounding it off both made it better-looking and more readable! This now looks like something I'd use in pixel comics.This is a clone of Pixelcruiser Flagship
A rounded sans-serif design inspired by the lettering in comic books. Since achieving properly rounded terminals for slanted letters like A and V was impossible, I reworked their designs.
A variant of Kitchen Sink Rounded with filter sizes altered so that most letters are enclosed within golden rectangles. This is a squatter and friendlier take on the design - good for header text.
UC cloned to LC to make this easier to use...This is a clone of Kitchen Sink Rounded
Kitchen Sink, sans the rounded counters. This font really is plain-looking when all its embellishments are removed, but sometimes that is what people want.This is a clone of Kitchen Sink
The original Kitchen Sink - a design with rounded counters.
This design is intentionally fairly plain. Check out the Kitchen Sink family to see the others :^)This is a clone of Kitchen Sink Rounded
A rounded sans-serif with rounded counters. That's DOUBLE the roundedness FOR FREE!!!
This family is made to have a high impact. Did it work? :^)
The most friendly and rounded 5x5 pixel design I can make! It gives me a "The Simpsons" feeling - the sort of font I'd expect to see in a well-made Simpsons game.
"Sage Rigour" = "Gregarious".
A rounded square design made for headlines as an alternative/companion font to Empty Magazine.
Designed by request.
13SEP2018: I have given this font a much-needed upgrade. Try viewing it at 2x Pixel size!
16SEP2018: Even more upgrades!
Bookish pixel font designed for general reading. Made for use in my own future web designs.
For this font I decided to do several things I almost never do with other pixel fonts.
First is the use of an 8*8 grid. I consider this size tough to work with so I tend to stay away from it, preferring X*7 or X*9.
Second is the rounding or softening of all 90° angles. 3- and 4- way intersections are exempt from this rule. However, some other acute angles were rounded as well.
Third is kerning, which helps ease this font back into microfont territory a bit by reducing excess space. I usually design pixel fonts so they don't need this, but not this time!
Fourth is the embrace of asymmetry throughout most letterforms, which is almost a natural consequence of making a font on the 8*8 grid.
Fifth is extending MmWw. I usually try to truncate these letters to fit my grid. Sometimes I make a symmetrical design for them, but this time I just let 'em sprawl.
