My try at a handwritten font on a small scale, the fuzzy preview amplifies the effect!
Feel free to comment any other ways to create a handwritten effect on a small scale!
(and yes, some time or another i will try to tackle a large scale font with faux-curves, just not anytime this month and/or the next one).
No Patrick, mayonnaise is not an instrument.
XATURATE - Heavy weight Egyptian slab
Here is another throwback of my original older works, now refurbished and expanded into a complete font that includes multilingual support.
As part of the recent endeavours into my older FontStruct works, digging for the forgotten and lost potential gems, I stumbled upon this Egyptian style Slab-Serif, called 'XATURATE'.
This classic looking heavy weight Slab-Serif design was left rather inconsistent and pretty incomplete. I don't remember why I abandoned
this back then, since this letterforms had great potential. They just needed a healthy fresh perspective and a little bit of extra love to make them shine after all.
• polished shape and form
• Rebalenced full character set
• Added multilingual support
• Included many symbols & punctuations
• Overhauled entire metrics
• Partial kerning (WIP)
I couldn't be more happy with the final result,
Let me know what you think...
Custom bold, beveled and fixed width font for the homemade handheld console MAD×DOG by INSANUS
An alternate slightly taller "a" is on the "µ" and another "x" on the "\". Kerning of really obvious pairs will be done. I'm showing this only because it's a clone that automatically replaced the compos, stacks and standard bricks with the square brick.
A while ago I mentioned encountering the swapped bricks and weird (=51) brick quantity in another cloned version of this design. At first I felt frustrated but then I thought it might work out as a useable font. Without the surprising swap there'd be no Romaeo as a pixel design!! Now I think the glyph shapes look really good with pixellated edges, I'd not have worked a chunky Romaeo into a pixellated chunky Romaeo. Proof that there might be unexplained and unwanted brick problems which don't deserve to be forgotten or deleted as the design can be used to develop a quite acceptable font.This is a clone
Heavy font for heavy work.
Made for Obscure Process, a zine about weird digital art techniques.
Work in progress.

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.
Trying a Courier style. The lowercase has a slightly bottom-heavy design, while the uppercase keeps it consistent. Serifs everywhere!
It fits into typewriter/detective type aesthetics as well as rustic and western ones.
This one is made for a friend. We'll see if they ever end up using it. :v
EDIT: It seems as if said friend is never going to make their webzine... so, feel free to do with this one as you wish.
