Welcome to the Future...
Dramatics aside, QUANTUM is a visual display typeface designed to convey one cyberpunk future out of many.
It is intended to be built as a monospaced font (however, spacing errors occurred, and it is a faux-monospace as a result), made on a 9x10 pixel grid out of a personal fascination with the vision of the cyberpunk future according to the 90s and a desire to capture the "spirit" of the original Sony PlayStation. One of the leading sources of inspiration is the work by The Designers Republic (tDR).
This typeface not only features Latin characters, but also Cyrillic, Greek, and even a few Coptic characters for good measure (in hopes of easing in the old world into the future)
Crystal Clear is a decorative typeface that was inspired by crystals and precious stones.
I bought a couple of different crystals and based the typeface on them, some of the crystals used were rose quartz, fluorite, smokey quartz, clear quartz and a couple of other ones. Some of these stones were already cut and not in their natural form, unlike the rest which were rough looking and not cut to a certain shape.
My fontstruct is based on the theme of theatre. The designs were achieved from my observations of some theatres in Bristol, as well as further research online. The main inspiration came from the achitecture around the stage curtains, which then lead me to a more art-deco style appoach.
Font "leaves" are built on the basis of a natural motif - a leaf. Strokes are formed from dark and light leaves
52 characters for the basic Latin set, 10 numerals, 36 punctuation characters, 66 characters for the Russian language set
Please let me know what do you think :)
My union font was inspired by my original Aztec font, where I was playing with simple geometrical shapes. It turned out to be too simple, so I changed the placement of the circles which are now the connection between the two parts of the letter. The circle plays an important role in this font, as it represened the imagery of Aztec God, and now reflects unity.
This is a font inspired by the word decorative. It uses letterforms that have been flipped and rotated multiple times to create a pattern. Each Letter is made up of 4 simplified letters. It is a display font as it is difficult to read, and should only be used for large scale posters or as a decorative type.This is a clone
My first fonstruction is based around the theme of malnutrition, but focuses on lesser acknowledged end of the spectrum, over-nutrition. I took inspiration from nature of skin and fat on overweight or obese bodies, putting emphasis on the folds and bulges you might typically see on the skin of a larger frame.
This typeface has been designed by taking inspiration from the theme ‘decorative’. I started to explore different aspects of this word which lead me to Moroccan/ Marrakesh tiles, not only are they a key feature of their country but they are also frequently used around the world and with their intricate geometric designs, they are distinctive in design. Keeping this in mind, I wanted to create a decorative font which portrayed this.
My font was created with the idea of mess and chaos in mind with each letter having a different 'contents'
It is supposed to represent something similar to pin and string art. The white dots representing the pins and the lines within representing the string. It might come across as a little complicated or hard to distinguish each letter however I think it gives it an authentic look.
Zakhrafa is a type of Islamic art which consists of embellished geometric designs. It is often used to complement Arabic calligraphy on architecture to bookcovers and various media. The inspiration of this font comes from the various Islamic patterns that can be seen on buildings all across Qatar. After living there for 8 years, I learned a lot about the Islamic culture which is what I want the font to reflect.This is a clone
Diamundi is a very simple but funny patterned decorative typeface design that mimics facets(flat faces on a geometric shape).
And for that everyone that is checking this, please make sure you zoom in max. to see whats really going on, Even beter, make sure you've seen the sample image bellow, because the Fontstruct preview is total garbage due to my use of composite bricks at this grid tiny size.
This font was designed around the theme word Elegant. I was inspired to create a typeface that was ornate and palatial; it is a ode to Baroque design.
I have tried to emulate columns for the body of the font and created a crowned frieze for some of the letters with decorative toppers for the remaining characters.
The current month seems to hold a meaning of threads: of fog, dew covered spiders' webs, barely-there things, feint perceptions defying scientific understanding and fine links with ancestors, to keep us in the present and enable open minds and caring souls to better the future. This abstract interpretation of Halloween has been designed to echo the traditionally mysterious mood to show the past (known glyphs, earlier FS bricks) linked in the present (on paper, in the FS previews, and using some of Meek's newest bricks I experiment with in this design) to create future (text will carry meaning to the reader, diversity of thought not experienced until after every glyph is finished, and beauty of text flow is visible only after it has been written). Totally within my personal plan for Night Pegasus' work: adventurous, alternative, divergent, different, exploring, experimental, unusual -- after all, the flying horse is free to visit any time any item or existence in this universe and any place in Fontstruct, to discover and weigh possibilities, to create its future from the past in it's present body and mind, and it does this cloaked in black as deepest night, undiscovered unless someone has their feelers tuned into mystery and taps into experiences of presence.
:.:.:.: Information to help you when using this font :.:.:.:
If a LC glyph follows a UC glyph: you need to use the space bar 6X to get the correct letter space (it will then match the natural spacing between LC); using only LC glyphs (or only UC glyphs) will give satisfactory text results as letter space is set by the programming. But you'll need to manually add the word space you want: between UC (or LC) words a minimum of 3 space taps for a just visible gap, use the space bar 6x for good spacing. Experiment!
Note: the full stop and comma have a line on the baseline to link with UC. There might be no need for a 'space' after those two marks even on LC? The apostrophy has a short line to link it to previous/following UC glyphs (note those link lines retain the meaning of the glyph when used with LC glyphs or an LC following an UC glyph).
SPACE BAR = a 1px space; tap 3x to get a small word space that's obvious
% key = a set of reasonably wide lines to match upper case verticals
_underscore = a space consisting of a long single line on base line only
I'm trying to figure out some diacritics before the 31st so this remains WIP
Recap of a dot matrix lettering taken from a colored sketch originally designed by Jurriaan Schrofer.
It been a while since I did one of Schrofer
Argh, I wish I never started this, It was terrible amounts of meticulous work and I wonder if ill ever add the lowercase letters to this type!!
172 x 74 units
0.5 x 0.5 grid scale (and still no full glyph fits on screen)
A decorative insular display font.
This is still a work in progress. I'm pushing the new bricks, stacking and nudging to the limit to create some nice flowing shapes. This is also a great opportunity to get working with some good kerning. Once I have the basic character set, this is going to be submitted to Google Fonts for approval.
A project I've been working on for some time that combines a readable writing system with a means of creating decorative streams of symbols, allowing for practical or artistic use. It is designed to be writable in the same way as English, with a couple key differences:
end of sentence within a thought:
. = SPACEBARx2
? = ?SPACEBAR
! = !SPACEBAR
end of thought:
? = ?-
! = !-
end of paragraph:
. = .
? = ?-
! = !-
numbers at the beginning of a sentence = ###-SPACEBARtext
numbers at end of sentence = textSPACEBAR-###SPACEBAR-
Use as applicable to avoid numbers and letters bleeding into each other.
For purely artistic streams of writing, Start every sentence with a capital, skip spaces, and use '-' as a period. This allows for a smooth bar of symbols without any random bits jutting out that can be used for framing or backgrounds.

A font made to evoke magical talismans, wizards' engravings, Celtic/Viking wirecrafts, and all that good stuff! It has a pseudo-segmented display that draws lines between segments. It also slightly reminds me of the folk art which appears on crockery, earthenware bowls, etc.
The spacing is set so that 2 spaces is 1 letter's width. Use this to simulate a monospaced look when desired.
The lowercase looks like lowercase, but it is really an alternate set. This was designed to be written in one case at a time.
Original size: 8.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
This version features both upper and lowercase characters plus some minor changes to it's appearance!This is a clone of STF_ORIGAMISH v1
ORIGAMISH v1 - Incised origami.
---This version only features small uppercase characters---
A funky idea that started with the A and expanded from there. Most letters are drawn by a single line winding around, although some are just not willing to follow this mantra. I found this half-finished while scrolling through my private FontStructions, looking for ideas for the CounterComp, and decided it was already an interesting entry :-)
There's an alternate, narrow set of numbers that can be reached with Shift+number (on a QWERTY, Dvorak, etc. layout); not sure which set fits the style better. Suggestions and critiques welcome for anything, and feel free to clone and poke around with it. Thanks and enjoy!
Inspired by the letters found throughout Betondorp, Amsterdam!
Finally, an All Stars that is truly "all" "stars" HAHAHA GEDDITThis is a clone of All Stars Black
