Fleurella - Simple modern yet elegant sans-serif typeface design.
WIP (See discription in the comment sections sample image posted bellow.
What I forgot to mention is that the big decorated "fleurella" monogram is in fact an experimental different weight that might become a new font.
All the decorative ornamental parts (animals, plants) are located in the "The Private Use Area (PUA)"

The original font from the dynamic highway signposts / variable-message signs (dWiSta) in Hesse, Germany!
Many non-alphanumeric characters which aren't used on the signs, are replaced with icons used on the signs, e.g.:
§ (paragraph) = Autobahn A3
% (percent) = Autobahn A5
$ (dollar) = Autobahn A67
| (vertical bar) = traffic jam
@ (at-sign) = construction
# (hashtag) = stadium
BACELAR & İRMAO — All-caps (Majuscules) 'Art Deco' display sans
Revival of the Art-Deco lettering seen on the medical supply store sign of
"Bacelar & Irmao, Lda."— Porto, Portugal.
I tried to keep it as faithful to the original as I could without compromising too much.
But in order to make them fit a complete typeface when doing these kind of revivals from lettering that were never intended to be a complete 'A-Z'-alphabet can sometimes be tricky not to have certain aspects get lost or slightly modified. As was also the case in this effort...
One of those specific changes for example was with the 'Capital A with tilde'.
In the original store sign the style of the tilde is fairly novel and unique. And seen in that particular situation used 'as is', its pretty self-explanatory of course, and works just fine. But viewed in isolation it is hardly recognizable as a tilde. Not to mention if it was part of a complete typeface that includes multiple accented letters. In that case I thinks it is very confusing and rather useless when it has to resamble the tilde. To overcome this issue I created a new capital letter 'A' with a more traditional and better recognizable tilde.
But obviously I had to somehow preserve that original and quirky novelty as well. So I included it into the location for the capital letter 'A' with ring above. I think it suits that spot much better to be honest. So in the end nothing really got compromised.
I hope you like it
CHAPPELL & Co. Ltd. - A simple bold sans serif display typeface.
Nothing out of the ordinairy here, just nice clean looking letterforms for good readability.
The font was based on the lettering seen on a 19th century sheet music artwork. The lettering saying "CHAPPELL & Co. Ltd."
I made some small changes along the way to in order to complete the full alphabet and extra's.This is a clone
SMEERKAAS - Decorative, squarish geometric and rounded Art Nouveau display type
Modern typeface design influenced by Art Nouveau typography.
At its core it is a plain geometric style, and the real breakaway towards a more decorative 'Art Nouveau' inspired style starts with the elongated letterforms and their irregular descending elements. These give it a slight more interesting and dynamic flow that somewhat resembles a calligraphic or handmade look. Some of the descending elements in the uppercase string slightly differ in length and are more decorative, mimicking a dripping-like effect.
Unlike with a more traditional Art Nouveau lettering, the geometric backbone of this design keeps it quite futuristic looking, and actually provides a nice transitional blend of styles.
It works well at pretty much any point size, even at the very smallest, but keep in mind that the font wasn’t meant for large body style text, and is best used in short decorative setting.
Cap height: 12 units
Body height: 17 units
Point size (Em): 18 units

The name “SMEERKAAS” is dutch for “cheese spread”and it likely needs some further explanation on why this particularly odd name was chosen.
During the eighties we had this idiotic tv commercial that was aired on dutch
television for a cheese spread brand called “Goudkuipje”.
The plot for this commercial was a castle siege during medieval times, and it revolved around the phrase;
― "Ze smelten de kazen!" which translates to; ― "They melt the cheeses!"
The plot further enfolds into the defending part that had run out of hot tar to pour onto their enemies, alternatively they started melting cheese, so that they would be able to pour that down the castle's wall.
To better understand the link between my font and the tv-commercial you should watch the short commercial clip first.

But in a nutshell, the name was sort of choosen as a meme to suit the font's dripping-effect decorative theme.
I hope you like it so far...

ALIEN WORMHOLE (BOLD) - Monolinear Sci-Fi-inspired 'worm' typeface.
This is a 'Bold' style version to the "ALIEN WORMHOLE" type family.
This version has a ton of extra character compared to the 'Light' version.
For now only the two 'Basic Latin' sets, some symbols and a small number of puctuation marks match. And it remains to be seen if I can translate back to the Light version all those extra's that were put into this Bold version.
I mentioned 'type family' earlier, but in reality there isn't a whole lot of family just yet. Since the two for now hardly correlate truly.
Here is a link to the 'Light' version
Stay tuned for future updates.
A unicorn tail is visible in the silhouette. The brightness of the sea and the mystery of the unicorn are expressed.
ALIEN WORMHOLE - Monolinear Sci-Fi-inspired 'worm' typeface.
Most well known worm-type design probably is NASA's retired 'worm' logo (used from 1975 till 1992).
A sophisticated modernist rendering of the letters (N-A-S-A), done in a bold style letterform.
That being said, I should mention that this FontStruction wasn't "inspired by" or "based on" the original NASA logo though.
[About this font:]
Small grid attempt at making sort of a experimental futuristic 'worm'-type design.
The letterforms for the most part are build from simplified basic geometry (rectangles/circular) except for a small number of symbols and punctuation that have diagonals.
It's experimental appearance is defined by the strikingly quirky counters that are awkwardly jutting out of the stems. To further boost it's awkwardness the letterforms have irregular width.
There is a full set of uppercase and partial lowercase glyph alternatives located in "Half Width Full Width" Unicode block to add slight stylistic variations.
I hope you like it,

REWINDER - A bold and decorative "I don't have a clue" style font.
Alternative lowercase versions for (a, c, e, g, j, m, n, o, q, s, u, v, w, y, z)
Usually I design fonts from a general concept I have in mind and start with the Latin alphabet first since I am most familiar with these characters. Then when I have completed these I start adding extra language support. letting everything evolve from there on out into the other languages such as Cyrillic or Greek. Doing it in this fashion I find myself having the best change of doing a decent job designing characters I am not familiar with the right way and in line with the design parameters.
This time I starten designing the Cyrillic alphabet first, trying not to think about the Latin set design at all. I did this in an attempt to have a neutral mindset that wasn't influenced in doing it a certain way.
And I must admit, this was the best and most comfi time I ever did a Cyrillic set. I experienced a sense of having a lot more freedom for creative output.
The result became this cool looking "hell knows" what kind of style letterforms. I have no clue if I actually did a decent and accurate job at the Cyrillic set, and I'm not sure where to go from here on out either.
I hope you like it so far
