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.
This Road Track Font is inspired by the road stripes and it also has that kind of "rapid feeling" when we take a look at it, because of the pointed line in some letters.
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
Decided to remake this font using composite bricks and additional charactersThis is a clone of Planeptune
Modern geometric sans-serif design, This is a updated version of the previously published STF_PIPER ALPHA. This version includes support for lowercase and all the other charaters are double checked plus modified where needed.
Enjoy!This is a clone
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.
Sort of revival of the lettering that Jurriaan Schrofer designed back in 1957 for Dutch timber trader called "houthandel Rote".
The original sketch by Schrofer featured the text "standaard profielen" in all lowercase letters (I will post a image bellow)
Now, as far as I know this was all the characters Jurriaan designed for this project. The designs parameters in Jurriaans sketch doesn't allow a lot of freedom and remains unclear on how a character with crossing strokes like k or x wouldve been done. So its kind of a tricky one to extend easily, therefor I just captured its basic letterforms for now.
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.
Experimental filled version of Pzydeco. The counter of "e" and all variations of it remains broken, so that the eye interprets it as "e" instead of "c".This is a clone of Pzydeco
Futuristic maze like logotype.
It was designed as part of the renewed visual identity for one of my music labels.This is a clone
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.
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.
Here we have a filled-counter pseudoserif pseudostencil that is also an IVO design at the same time! It also has a bit of a "double font" look going on if you look at the negative space.
1. Internal negative spaces of glyphs will be filled such that a 0.5-brick-wide void exists between the filled space and the glyphs themselves.
2. When a glyph's horizontal line intersects with the filled space created by Rule 1, both the filled space and the line will be broken.
3. Vertical lines will only connect by two tapering curves or by the implied connections created by filled negative space.
4. Filled negative spaces may only join with the outer perimeters of glyphs.
I tried out some new ideas with this font. I like how spikey it turned out by using the thin curved blocks :)
Folder strips of paper style blackletter attempt. I wish I had better solutions for some charaters, but I had some tough struggles getting good looking glyphs for this style, for example uppercase T took me like 60 attemps and none ever really pleased. So I ended up with choosing the best of them en just went on with the rest. BUT, Zephram came to the rescue and delivered me a propper T, Arrrrr thanks matey!!!

A font that walks a thin line, even when it walks on its hands.
This font tries to use the half-arc brick to its greatest potential. Since this brick isn't the same width as the others, it causes the thin outboard lines to be cut a bit short. This in turn causes the eye to interpret the corners they form as rounded, even though the curved parts of the glyphs themselves are very small. In this way the half-arc brick helps create curves and harmonize them with angles.
Another folded style.
There is a number of glyphs I would've rather seen different, like for example G, V, Y, 4, maybe 7. And the punctuation is very poorly done too. But I got kind of stuck and didn't know where to take it any further,
This is the first font that I've ever kerned, and kerned correctly. I've painstakingly made sure that every letter combination relevent to my font in English are absolutely perfect. I hope you all enjoy using this font. Happy typing! :D
Part of a multistyle typeface family "ALIENSTRA".
This actually was planned to be the first but issues with the original forces me to rebuild it completely. More styles will follow.
This is the cleanest variation in the planned display styles.
Enjoy!This is a clone of STF_ALIENSTRA SOLID (IRREGULAR)
Part of a multistyle typeface family "ALIENSTRA".
This is the first one that got finished for this project, a buch more will follow in this same family.
This is a decorated variation on the solid style (one that will follow soon as well).
Isometric 3D outline style typeface.
The glyph have a exact copy slighly elevated and to the right of its original which I then connected with eachother to create the box-like three-dimensional idea.
Because of some serious design difficulties it remains far from complete, but I am kind of done with it for now due to this. For now only support for uppercase, no numerals and very limited punctuations. I think I fully kerned it, or at least everything that is important. On last thing I need to mention, the smallest open spaces doesn't allow this font to work in very small size. These will look filled at smaller point size.
I'm not sure if I will ever try another attempt to finish it at a later stage. (who will tell..) ;)
But I think what I've got so far is too cool for not publishing it. So for now it would do just fine as a logotype or for a decorative usage but not much else.

A stemless and spurless Eviolite. It has a "utilitarian" look which I enjoy.This is a clone of Eviolite
A righteous, chunky font that was totally inspired by the 80's and all those righteous arcarde games! Make your designs most triumphant with Arcade.
An experimental display typeface inspired by space and the moon. It includes dots that vary from uppercase and lowercase letters to allow a better flow between letterforms.
Basketcase is a bold, decorative font. My inspiration first came from walbaum decoritve font and then I shifted more towards taking a spin on DDC harware.
