Alternate plain version of Funkytown Throwdown. The spacing has been reworked for this one.This is a clone of Funkytown Throwdown
Just doodling with the Connect bricks!
Sometimes the stray particles connect to form new shapes, and sometimes they don't. I rather like the seeming randomness of this property, so maybe I won't standardize it after all.
Iteration 4: Basic Latin kerning finished.
DOODLE DOODLE DOODLE!
1. Letters with spurs will have the spur begin at the baseline. This provides the distinctive "high heeled" look.
2. Any letter whose traditional design has a straight vertical line on its left side will keep the line, no matter how the lines of the actual letter travel.
Somewhat of a accidental goofy future retro style font.
This initially started as a experiment into discovering new ways within small grid designs to gradually increase the radius of a small curve and find new transitions in their shape for making asymmetrical curvatures, all without compromising the smooth edges (2x2 for this one, with hairline stroke weight of 1/8th of a square grid unit). But, it quickly became a real font.
I have kept the variations for a number of eliptical shapes and curves I made so far in order to demonstrate what the goal for this was.
I hope you like it.
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.
A continuation of ideas present in Limbus, with a bunch of new ideas for good measure.
A quirky Pseudostencil design with a central horizontal slot going through it. The "slot" is 1 brick tall for lowercase and 2 for uppercase, and becomes a vertical slot for numerals and certain symbols.
This is named for the cowboy and lasagna emojis. These were repeatedly added to then removed from several popular chat clients and websites. Changing emoji standardization or government conspiracy? YOU DECIDE.
By request. The name is Dwarvish for "Matchshattered" ("Equalshattered"), an artifact iron axe carried by Mosus in Kruggsmash's YouTube videos about Dwarf Fortress.
Numeral digits are to be seperated by spaces.
Version 1.1: Added uppercase. Lots of unkerned pairs (and general improvements) remain...
Experimenting with larger polygonal shapes. I think these polygons are the smallest ones which can be used to create glyphs that approach being truly circular. I made this design to show the polygons, so feel free to clone it.
A vaguely Courierlike OSD (Onscreen Display) font which tries its best to be casual. The name is inspired by the old computer joke: "Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard disk?"
No filters or faux-beziers, just stock bricks and a bit of stacking/nudging!
More about the design:
It started as a doodle and an attempt to make a smooth, low-resolution, low-poly font, and then it became a Courierlike. I have other fonts that tried to do polygonal round shapes before this (such as Cartoon Riot) but this design is my first real success in this area.
Initially, I made the angled glyphs before the round ones. I didn't want to change the angled ones, so glyphs like C, O, and Q became a bit wider than they are tall. I'm quite fond of this, because in most designs these glyphs tend to have a tall and narrow character. I think the mildly squat look of this font makes it cuter and gives it more personality.
A lot of glyphs were altered in specific ways to look more like metal type, especially anything with diacritics which touch the letters themselves. Other glyphs were altered specifically to be interpretable at small size. I also use angled contours and actual round bricks alongside each other within the same glyphs, another technique which is geared toward style and interpretability at small size.
This font came with many new challenges and an array of new techniques had to be designed. Loops were an insurmountable challenge because of the low resolution and heavy line weight, so I drew rounded areas to suggest them. You can see it on letters like Greek γ, ζ, and ξ.
By request, a chat/comics font which combines features of "Micro Machina" and "Chlorophyte". I took some other liberties with it as well in order to make it more distinctive (see MSVWacegjmtyz).
This turned out extremely well! It's more open and airy than many of my larger designs, and is pleasant and easy to read even at the original size.
Supports Dutch and English.
This font has everything Zeph-y. Decolike shapes, half-arcs, procedural asymmetry, slight gaudiness, and an ampersand that looks like a priest with a cross walking on the ocean waves.
By request, a condensed and quirky outline font!
Original size: 7.5pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
A slightly quirky font made to be good for chat and marquee display. The global matrix is 8 pixels tall. This works well for IRC clients, MUD clients, and so on. Supports Dutch, English, and Greek!
Original size: 6pt
A font designed for fast single-line marquee-style display.
This was made according to the speedreading considerations of specific people. So, not everyone will find it as readable as we do.
Confidento is a typeface based and styled on the word Confident, aiming to produce a type which uses features that are strong and bold. One of the main characteristics I have aimed to encorporate throughout this process is the use of a balanced type design, enabling the design to not become too heavy. I achieved this through the means of having large variation in width across different aspects of the text.
A dashed line design made with the new half-arc bricks. The emphasized spurs/stems and off-kilter geometry give it a quirky, almost handwritten quality. Its striped appearance makes me think of candy as well as the Cheshire Cat, thus the name. :D
I doubt the upper case would look as cute as the lower. So I've cloned all LC to UC to make this easier to use...
A seriously spurless sans-serif. It approaches minimalism, but doesn't quite get there. This gives it a look that lets it blend in with lots of things!
It reminds me of a font I saw years ago on some futuristic-looking tinned rations. I don't remember what the brand was, but I remember the label having a very rounded sans-serif font like this one.
A variant of Clockwork Macguffin in which most curves are changed to 90° angles. Whereas with most fonts a change like this would result in a more authoritarian or "professional" look, this one became quirkier. I like it!This is a clone of Clockwork Macguffin
By request: A squareish serif. 5x7 with no wasted matrix.
It makes a decent companion font to Gumshoe.
A gnarled, pointy design which fits into many historical periods and aesthetics. It makes me think of Wild West woodtype and gargoyles.
Made experimentally as an alternative to "Nimbus Mono L". The serifs just sort of do what they want, sometimes fitting in naturally, sometimes not.
It's not meant to be monospaced, but is meant to have the same sort of neat constant-width look. All uppercase letters and numerals are 5 width, while most of the lowercase letters are 4 width.
Another attempt to make a usable narrow monospace programming font.
Experimental slab-serif. The added height from the serifs is quantized so that the serifs, rather than the normal lines, determine a glyph's geometry.
It reminds me of the Wild West and the old cartoon "The Jetsons" at the same time. It uses two kinds of serifs: normal slabs and "hangover" serifs. The hangovers are the ones that look like overhangs. Is there another name for them? I don't know.
This font is set to appear in several games at once! I'm not the developer of any of them! WOO
Despite what you may have heard, a "hoedown" is just a party.
3x3 slab serif. This is based on Wallerton, Anachronistic Gunslinger, an IRC-based "TV show" which I used to write and produce. All the characters in the show were my AIs pretending they were cowboys.
Well, I managed to successfully produce a lowercase for this one!
Recommended: Use with kerning.
MARTIAN AMBASSADOR - a quirky alien looking typeface.
What first started as a tryout to make entire glyphs within a single composite brick quickly got out of hand. lol
Each glyph was designed on a 2x2 grid by way of composite stacking. Lowercase and superscript characters are single brick composites.
Viewed in the fontstruct preview many glyphs do not show clean edges because I heavily made use of composite bricks and stacks on a small grid. However, these irregularities are not really present in the actual TrueType Font.
I attempted a blackletter style without any knowledge or references. The result reminds me of a vampire's writing!
The name "Dethzmezenger / Death's Messenger" comes from one of many old joke bands which I created.
Original size: 17.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
