I don't know if this has been done before.
It's just a simple & elegant solution utilizing 4 parallel lines.
See how neat the letter 'B' is formed by 6 rectangles.
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.
I created this typeface around the theme of gregarious, focusing on gregarious plants. I started with drawing the letterforms in ink using a rolled up leaf. The results were twig-like marks which reminded me of the illustrations from 'A Monster Calls' so I developed the letters thinking how they could work alongside this or another story. The name 'This Wild Earth' is taken from the book and I think reflects the scratchy and bold feel of the typeface.
CAPITAL LETTERS HAVE A WHITE STRIKETHROUGH. LOWERCASE LETTERS ARE COMPLETE.
TO GET THE PARALLAX LOGO (MY WEBSITE), TYPE “%.”

• 2017:11:30 — PUT THE STRIKETHROUGH ON THE CAPITAL ACCENTED CHARACTERS. ALSO FIXED A SPACING ERROR WITH THE “$” SYMBOL.
• 2017:12:01 — DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, I HAVE ADDED A HUNDRED AND FIFTY NEW AND ACCENTED CHARACTERS.
• 2017:12:02 — ADDED EIGHTY-SIX MORE CHARACTERS, BRINGING THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF CHARACTERS TO THREE HUNDRED AND FORTY-ONE. ALSO UPDATED THE “¥” SYMBOL AND THE SINGLE ACCENTS.
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.
Enjoy!This is a clone
