This started as an alien sci-fi font, but early in its development I realized it looked a lot like "pohang station". So I ended up shelving my own ideas to create this demake.
Upgraded version of Aenvidere (which is the original 'normal weight' version) made for one of my grandsons. The glyphs in this version have lines of different thicknesses which seems to make them and any text more interesting to look at, yet it continues to be elegant.
Numerals are taller than other glyphs, I wonder if a larger letter space might 'integrate' them more when used in a line of text?
Kerning has been done where necessary = on very few pairs: T+some LCs and F+some LCs but not yet on T and F with the corresponding diacritics; also done are TJ and LT. The "f" has been moved in the grid, and "f" and "l" have adjusted letter space. I think that the shape of the glyphs (with and without adjusting their positions/letter space) reduces greatly the need for kerning. Having said all that I'll print some text to check and will adjust kerning where necessary ---at a later date.
This is the most advanced version of Aenvidere (due to kerning), the other published versions will be kerned at a later date. I'm showing them nevertheless so that you can compare versions.This is a clone of Aenvidere
Thicker lines than Aenvidere AGardin. This is quite chunky. Yet it remains rather (good looking and) elegant. Kerning has to be done (check details of this in the font description on Aenvidere AGardin)This is a clone of Aenvidere Stilo
Sort of revival of the retro sci-fi letters used by the Atlantic Toy Company for their "Galaxy Serie". A science fiction themed toy line that was manifactured from 1978 to the early 1980s.
I had to make a couple of compromises on some glyphs due to FS limitations, so the fontstruction isn't 100% accurate, but i'd say still very recognizable.
A light weight Bauhaus style font with a little handwriting twist. Most curves have a slight overshoot. A lot of characters are still missing due to design difficulties. I hope to add more soon.
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
Making a pixel font series.
Things that don't look good: (x, 1/4, 1/2)
Best font size: multiples of 7This is a clone of 5x5 pxl
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...
A rounded simplistic monospace font with digital-looking numbers and some special characters made for use with English or German language.
This is a somewhat bold font that is free for use by anyone.
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.
Aenvidere (the normal weight version) still needs fine-tuning and kerning, still. That will come, eventually :) At the moment I'm quite busy doing too many things concurrently.
Check the font description for AlexGar-Aenvidere for details.
At a later date I'll publish a squared-off version of this. Aenvidere SQ will have the same glyph style but will be wider than the other versions which might make it less useful as a "tool" to attract attention when added as splash insert in text that uses another Aenvidere version.
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...
As I like the glyphs' shapes of midi-trente etc I let myself be inspired by fonts in FS 'op art' set to get an additional style for the "midi" series.This is a clone
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.

Continuing my experimentation with diagonals. My goal was to make a font without vertical stems. English has 13 capital letters with vertical stems (B,D,E,F,H,I,K,L,M,N,P,R&T). Diagonia has 4 (I,M,T&W).
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)
