Mipo was the precursor for what evolved into the later MX Wasgard typeface that was released back in November 2016. That's why the S and Z looks the same is Wasgard's. It evokes visuals of mosaic designs found on window panes, or that's how I feel.
Never Finished, Never Will is a release of my old FontStruct works that never came to be completed, and neither will it ever be. The intention of this is to share them with everyone to take, play with it and modify it however they want!
Hopefully these half-completed works can inspire you guys to do something refreshing with it, or perhaps you'd like to finish it for me (many thanks in advance! ❤️). All these fonts will be under the Open Font License, and will be progressively rolled out from me. They will be tagged under never finished never will and nfnw for easier recognition.
Fingernail was an attempt to create a reverse-contrast typeface in FontStruct. It's in recognition of the fun typefaces of this genre that type foundries have been releasing in recent years, such as Boogie School Sans, Ribes Black, and Opposit.
Fridz was going to be a bold sharp serif font, think after I was obsessed with GZA by Philipp Herrmann. But it got tiring after one too many challenges on getting the forms well. (See also Bagnard by Sebastien Sanfilippo)
A take on modern inktrap typefaces, Capsaicin is a wilder rendition of such a kind. With the liberal use of inktraps and sharp ends, it became like a 'stinger' itself. Capsaicin is a component that can be found in chili peppers, and it causes people's skin to have a burning sensation. Hope this typeface kind of puts that feeling into visuals.This is a clone
mx Eli is inspired by types used in artisanal goods packages and other sleek, modern brands. It's a serif font without the varying widths of roman types with several fun alternate capitals to choose from.

Based on the Lamina typeface by Em42. Made a rough 'A' glyph first as a test for the Reverse Competition but I had no time to get back to it before the deadline. I finished it anyway to see how the final outcome would be.
A portmanteau of the term 'Pleat' and 'Uno', mx Pleato was inspired by the wavy pleats of the skirt and the tails of the 'Reverse' symbol arrows found in Uno cards. I was first interpreting the "Reverse" aspect of the glyph designs through a simple sketch of a pleated skirt/ribbon by using the opposites of the arches (AKA valleys) and then furthering the project using quarter arches of a ribbon (like the arrow tails in Uno), opposite-facing rods and other additional elements.
This typeface was concevied two years ago and later shelved. Thought that it was still worth finishing so here it is. It's another take on the square dot matrix style that I did with the MinSha typeface back in 2010.
Inspired by Punk-esque, spray-painted, hip hop genre types, MX Wasgard is a take on that, using two varying sets of bubbly typefaces that can be merged together to create an overall dynamic type arrangement. Suitable to use in display sizes and subcultural materials.
Would also like to thank Meek for giving us the new thinner macaroni bricks so as to make this typeface possible! :D
Inspired by Radim Peško's 'Agipo' typeface. mx Kurino is a condensed sans serif typeface with a bold weight. Good to use as a header font, providing impact with simplicity.This is a clone
As opposed to he original typeface, this 'Slim' version has more squarish curves and a thinner weight that is even among all strokes, while preserving its identity using angled terminals. This makes for a more Sci-Fi looking outcome, rather than festive. It has a look similar to the unicaps ESA_02 typeface by Eggers + Diaper.This is a clone of MX Mugh Heavy
I started this typeface out with the letter 'a', and from there slowly build up the other glyphs and came to realise it looks like a festive type. It's most likely due to the terminals being very angular and sharp, and that thought strengthens ever more so after I tried using it in Adobe Illustrator.
