Based on the theme of rebirth, ‘Fill in the blanks’ draws inspiration from the Renaissance era. Looking at the original printing press, traditional blackletter and Renaissance calligraphy, ‘Fill in the blanks’ offers a modern twist on some of the oldest typefaces to date. By looking at the brush strokes of blackletter and the serifs used in the printing press typefaces, this font is a combination of these characteristics. By using just these features the human eye can still recognise the letter form, essentially allowing your mind to ‘Fill in the blanks.’
This typeface was designed as a response to the shift towards Online and Digital Communications that communities practice in modern society. Since the emergence Internet, people has more frequently resulted to email, messaging and other online connections as a means of communicating with each other as supposed to speaking directly in person.
This has limited the power of communication and removed many organic aspects of conversation. I feel this is particularly prevalent today as a result of the Covid pandemic and as people continue to feel more isolated, we loose the important subtleties in the way we discuss and exchange.
The character’s design was based off fonts like CMC7, MICR E13-B, CRT Screen Typography, the works of Gerard Unger, Wim Crouwel and other pieces of design created for the exchange of digital information between machines.

For my chosen theme Community (specifically biological community)
I decided to work with a worm/snake shape. Trying to figure out the final letter shapes during the creative process I got inspired by the snake game I'm sure everyone played on their old Nokia including me.
I observed the snake's movements in the game and created a typeface based on that. I would characterize my typeface as a simple combination of retro and modern at the same time.
Created by Nicole Rybáková as a first-year graphic design student at UWE Bristol Uni.
This is my first typeface as a first-year graphic design student at UWE. It has been created based on the theme ''Rebirth''. Inspired by the Renaissance which means ''rebirth'' in French the typeface is a transition from the old to the new. It is also connected to moon phases as a symbol of rebirth and change. The typeface is a combination of sharp elements and smooth shapes, has some futuristic and traditional motifs. Each letter is unique and can be used by itself or in a text with the others. Any comments are welcomed.
This is my first typeface made in Fontstruct and it is a part of my degree. The theme of the project is “Rebirth”. With this Fontstruction I am trying to revamp some of the typefaces being used for headlines and drop caps in books or newspaper. I am aiming for a more boxy and modern look, by some separations in the structure of the letters. My main inspiration came from sci-fi books and encyclopedias.
A bold, rounded, mono spaced typeface; useful at various scales, I think. Designed primarily for use in English, also useful in French and Spanish. It's functionality in Greek is limitted, only really useful in a display context, or where only Demotic usage is required; not useful in Katharevousa, Koine, Classical, etc. Open Font Liscence, hope it is enjoyable and of use.This is a clone
The idea behind this display font is to create something wide, modern and with light hint of space exploration
Unicase font inspired by Block02, the only FS published by the interesting Mexican type designer Manolo Guerrero from BlueTypo. I've put some "soft" alternatives -a, e, f, i, m, n, q, w- in the lowercase (I've taken also more creative freedom than the original font, which used a limited set of bricks). Enjoy.
Friends, I'm asking for help! Which "R" do you prefer? The one with the straight, or curved leg? I'm split, because personally I much prefer the straight leg, but curved seems more consistent with the rest.
The term "sidereal" (/saɪˈdɪəriəl/) refers to a measurement of time based on the position of stars.
Industrial, geometric, display, extended, modern, uniform weight. Based on a 2-brick tall grid. Inspired by Microgramma/Eurostile and the Terminator logotype.
"Prototype" means that this is not the final verison. In this case, FontStruct has been used as a fantastic preliminary design tool. But due to its limitations, the font will have to be reworked. Not by much - only the ⅝ roundings will be made circular in a traditional font editor, I'll be introducing optical improvements, and real kerning will also be implemented.
FontStruct's kerning tool is extremely rudimentary (understandable), and honestly, because of that, I left the kerning in a really messy state, it's kind of beyond repair at this point, as I don't really know what's what anymore. Oh, and also - due to limitations of the nudge tool, the ampersant (&) is offset to the right by half a brick, I tried to fix it with kerning as well, and it kinda works, but that will be fixed in the final version, outside FontStruct.This is a clone
