When my mother was young (and specially after my birth) she supplemented the family's income from home by typing for students and businesses. When I was a student I used the same machine for my assignments, lesson plans and thesis. The years were not kind to the machine, the mechanics rusted or broke, the letters worn with frayed edges or disintegrating serifs and fine lines. Ruth's typewriter is a declaration of my appreciation of many years of service the brave little machine gave... As you can see I clearly didn't get the letters repaired ;) The font looks like I rearranged and glued down what was left of the raised surfaces, to continue using the typewriter and give my words a very modern look ;)) A "grunge-writer" ?? Did you notice that no typewriters were ever sold with this kind of modern destructured typefaces?! ;)
Since I started this font many years ago (Ruth was very amused and appreciated this hommage) this work has now become a memorial to her
Very very Minimalist font made out of only 8 bricks.
Letters are composed of only 4 bricks
Comments and Suggestions are welcome!
Typical LED is a circular pixel font intended for use in video games and video game-related t-shirts. Best used on a black background in a non-neutral color such as red, orange, green, or blue.
An experiment based on: "What if an 8 color wheel was a letter O?" A work in progress just to bring up the potential of the new update. P.S. This font has nothing to do with LGBT, these are just rainbow colors.
Big Brother is watching you. Or maybe space aliens?
This is finished as far as I see useful for this competition. Based on Spheretta 5.7 by arseniiv from 2011 which I cloned quite a while ago as the uneven spacing-positioning of the dots on the ring could be improved with new fontstructor's features. I sent him a message about my clone but assume he hasn' frequented FS for a while, so he doesn't know about how I developed his idea and won't see that I've used part of his design in my "future comp" submission.
This font is not official so you can mess with it and do whatever. I just wanted to make art out something I wanted to learn. This is more of a dedicated vent than a profit. Plus, I am not doing anything official or commercial with this. I just was bored and thought: Make blind people a font on braille.
DEDICATED TO BLIND PEOPLE
People every day are blinded or born blinded. Not in a sense of "you are stupid" type blind. They are actually blind and need symbols popping out as dots to read. They feel the words. This is known as Braille. I am kinda learning the alphabet of braille and its importance.
So, one day, I sat down and thought: Why not make a font for braille?
I know they might never see this or feel this, but I wanted to make something to show how I thought since every language gets their front, why not braille?
Using "Fractal" and several other sources for braille, here is my font of braille.
It is known as The DiRECTOR
Directs blind people to know where they are going and helps them dive into books and imagine worlds they might have not ever seen. The "I" is short to look like the hand touching the braille in our normal next just like I went and touch the text they read.
Mess with this and surprise your friends and learn braille similar to how I am and how they are by typing with this font.
Like I stated before:

I wanted to create a font with big circles and arcs that ascended and descended, and what became of that experiment was this Art Deco font.
The at sign and registered trademark symbol were inspired by Roadway's unique at sign.
Collection of linear-interpolated circle attempts, or simply faux-Bezier circles and other curvature related materials.
This toolset basically is collection of pre-made fake circles and curves in numerous different sizes to make ones workflow easier. It could also simply serve as a educative tool that demonstrates the basic FontStruct technique used for making fake curves and circles.
Initially I intended this to be much more complete, but it is simply too much work, and would take forever to get published at once.
Please don't expect this to be perfect, a lot gets fairly close to the "real-deal".
But keep in mind that they remain raw approximations of their true Bezier counterparts. I will try to improve whatever is needed as time progresses, as well as most likely add more stuff.

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.
Another 2x2 doodle. :^)
Pixelated demake of Nirvanite Fossil. It introduces more size variation than its predecessors, and proves even harder to read. The size variation was necessary to prevent these sprites from being too large and to make them more unique from the glyphs in Nirvanite Fossil.
Original size: 25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Alternate take on Nirvanite, this time with bullseyes rather than solid circles as the large segments.
This one is a lot more organic than its predecessor, but also a lot more confusing. Looks like clusters of alien tadpole eggs to me!This is a clone of Nirvanite
Experimental mosaic... or maybe a new mineral species?
This one started as a doodle. I began placing circles to see what kinds of complex shapes I could make, and this was the result.
It achieves a new visual effect at almost every size up to the original. Also try slowly moving the zoom slider for some interesting animations!
This font is now nearly 1MB in size! I guess it has to do with the intrinsic complexity of circles.
A written court language used by Ashrians on Bysonce Island, Planet Ashr in my video game Endless Sea of Stars. This one is used for public court documents, and its brother language Calystiphos Hand is used for private documents and old government records.
These glyphs could be considered a form of shorthand unto themselves, since each court stenographer has its own way of writing these down and its own way of abbreviating or embellishing them. Through knowledge of these glyphs, and their accompanying interpretation, one can surmise all of the important proceedings and notes.
Common methods for stenographers to alter these glyphs involve:
- Adding/removing quadrants
- Crossing out one or more elements in colored ink
- Drawing connecting lines between points within one or more quadrants
- Inscribing shorthand or marginalia within negative spaces
- Marking or coloring within the central circle
- Shading via different means (scribbling, crosshatching, or with colors)
- Rotating a quadrant upon its own axis
It's important to note that stenographers also often write (either in Royal Bysoncian, Sea Bysoncian or Voktlandish) in accompaniment with these symbols. The idea is for each stenographer to come up with a system of encoding that works for it. Eudastiphos Hand could thus be considered an amalgamate, interlingual cipher built from other Ashrian languages.
In terms of communication systems which exist on Earth, this is most readily compared to Nsibidi.
Continuing on the theme of choosing a regular shape and making an alphabet out of it.
Looks best at smaller sizes (<24pt) and with antialiasing/ClearType turned on.
Can this be done better with filters? Probably, but I still have to learn those... :D
Made to print some decorative corners on A4 sheets; this will make a novel Yule gift for someone lucky enough to know me ;)
Of course it could also be used as a code:D
