"thank god theres a copy and paste function"
i thought an isometrical font would be nice so i made one
wow i like 3d fonts huh
I tried to make a font that mimics the minimalist design patterns of the late-90s and early-00s, as well as earlier grid-based works like those of Wim Crouwel. This is the fruit of that labour.
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 serif font with a couple of nice little touches to it. My original idea was to attempt to make a Donburi Serif, but about three glyphs in turned into its own thing.
This is a rendition of one of A. V. Hershey's dot fonts from his 1967 paper "Calligraphy for Computers", the "Cartographic" (sans-serif) font, plus a number of glyphs imported from the "Mathematical" font, as well as many additional glyphs drawn in the same/similar style to the original glyphs. This font actually dates to at least as early as June 1963, as it is featured on some diagrams in Hershey's "The Plotting of Maps on a CRT Printer" paper.
A classical option with a new point of view (the scrape). The LC is different to make more legible the pairs of equals glyphs like FF, TT, CC, OO, EE... IBYP because I'm kerning a lot of them.
Very stressful assembly of bricks, I thought I would not finish it on time. Uff! Some glyphs are still expecting to be included in the font. WIP, and kerning.
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!
Happy 10th anniversary to FS and all the fontstructors! Thanks a million to Meek and the sponsors. This is a wonderful trip and the future is infront of us, compañeros!
BTW, "Sorpasso" means "overtaking" in italian.
This is a pixelated font contains the Latin alphabet, including many letters with diacritics and more obscure yet common Latin letters, roman numerals, puctuation, the Cyrillic alphabet, the Hebrew alphabet and Japanese Katakana. I am working on adding Greek now.
It's a real pleasure to work now in FontStruct! And here we are a lot of new challenges too. PS for the beginners: Just only let the basic square and try the other bricks... It's amazing, believe me!
I decided to be laynecom for a day, and this is the result. Didn't have time for numbers and punctuation though, unfortunately...
Some alternates available in Extended Latin A. Suggestions and critiques encouraged, as always. Thanks and enjoy!
More of an experiment than an attempt at an amazing typeface, but I thought it'd be a fun entry nonetheless. Don't let the creation date fool you: I started this design in early 2014. There were many issues that had to be remedied before publishing, most notably the lack of characters and major discrepancies between the shapes of serifs (some were entirely triangular, others entirely curved). It's still heavily a work in progress. Suggestions are encouraged, especially for the Q and punctuation. Thanks and enjoy!This is a clone
(This font is dedicated to my dear friend Miguel and his wife María. Miguel just died on 26/may/2012. ¡Nunca te olvidaremos, compañero!)
Work in progress (kerning and more glyphs to come).
My first entry for Serifcomp. Originally created in 2013, when I still had little knowledge about the finer details of type design. I've made major changes to the original design while trying not to lose its original feel (avoiding diagonal strokes, for example). I ended up making major changes to M, Q, T, W, f, k, m, q, r, t, and w, and minor changes to a bunch more; a ton of kerning was also required. It's not very polished yet, but it's a start...
Some alternates are available in Latin Extended A. As always, suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
Inspired by the works of regular_one. Unlike most fonts I've released recently, many of the glyphs had to be modified or even redone from scratch.
- M, W, m, w, @, #, %, <, >, ~, and the circumflex above accented letters were all too wide and had to be condensed;
- I, f, i, j, l, r, and t were all too narrow and were expanded a bit, mostly through the careful application of serifs;
- K, M, W, X, Y, v, w, y, 7, /, and \ all had ugly mixes of angles that needed to be redesigned;
- N, *, (, and ) were completely redesigned, and many more touched up, to fit better with the rest of the font.
Most of the edits made were not possible before nudging. It's still not perfect, but it's much better than it was before, and I'm proud of how much it has "grown up". Of course, suggestions and critiques are encouraged. Thanks and enjoy!
An attempt to make a very readable sans similar to what you would see on streetsigns, utilizing larger curves than the average FontStruction. Uses 3x3 curves on the uppercase and 2.5x2.5 on the lowercase/numbers. A few alternates in Latin Extended-A. As always, suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
Inspired by a font I saw in a children's book. The artist had drawn a map of the world on canvas and used a tiny serif font to label important points on the map. The letters had such a cute hand-made feel to them that I just had to recreate it in FS.
Uppercase letters are 6 grid squares (3 bricks) tall; lowercase are 4.5 (2.25 bricks). IIRC nudging had recently been introduced; this definitely would have been impossible without it.
