A legible condensed font, with kerning and shoulder joints.
For alternative letters, See the alternative version here.
simple sans is... well... a simple 7x4(ish) sans-serif pixel font. but not really. there are a lot of funky details hding in the glyphs. try to catch them all!
this is currently the most-glyphed font i ever have which is not a clone of some other font.
this font is gonna have 1000+ glyphs very very soon!
this experiment is now abandoned. i will work on a new unicode font soon.
One of my first actual fonts made with only two triangle blocks. All of the triangles are the same size; they never connect to form a wider triangle.
A sans-serif pixel font meant to be somewhat small and very legible. This is just my PlainAndSimple font with added Latin-1 characters and some adjustments to numbers and punctuation in Basic Latin. Most upper-case glyphs and numbers are 5 blocks wide plus 1 block for spacing, and from baseline to caps-height is 8 blocks. The descender is 2 blocks below the baseline, and accents on capital letters can go up an extra 3 blocks, so the total max height of a line is 13 blocks. Lower-case letters tend to be less wide than upper-case ones.This is a clone of PlainAndSimple
"There is no spoon."
A remake of an older font of mine.
I think it looks better now.
Condensed geometric sans-serif typeface inspired by the lettering seen on a variety of different Dutch and German street signs.
The simple and clean geometric letterforms provide this typeface with a strong legibility in both display & body style text.
(grid size 3,5 × 7 at 2x2 brick size filter)
Support for 34 languages:
Afrikaans, Albanian, Belarusian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Maltese, Norwegian, Polish, Portugese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Zulu.
Based off of a puzzle game Idea I have.
It's sort of like a cross between Gunpey and a 1-D Sudoku.

A font designed for small sizes. Blockle is my most readable text font yet.
This project has changed my view of type by being patient and to really think about how the typeface will be protrayed in a product. My typeface reminds me of an "old-school" videogame. I had alot of fun with this project because I got familier with the tools in this program very quickly. I hope you enjoy my font, Funky Pixels!

A font which has a spurless, sans-serif, pixelated polygonal look which is somewhat reminescent of fonts used in VHS technology.
A lot of applied science went into this design. It's designed to remain legible on all media in all use conditions, provided that one uses the original size or a multiple thereof. Numerous technologies and mediums were employed to realize this objective.
"Diaspora" was tested and refined for use with/on/against:
• CRT, LCD & e-Ink screens
• image formats & compressed imagery (GIF, JPG)
• printers (inkjet, bubble jet, laserjet, & thermal)
• analog video & multi-generational copies (VHS, Super 8)
• digital video (AVI, MP4, MPEG, WEBM, WMV)
• 3D and voxel models (Blender, MagicaVoxel, POV-Ray)
• dynamic scaling hardware (game consoles and capture devices)
• imagery plugins & filters, including image degraders
• image scaling/interpolation hardware & software
• image recognition hardware & software
These all have traits which degrade, distort, compress, glitch, or otherwise alter imagery in various ways. This design aims to minimize the loss of legibility from these effects and to attain the best scores possible in various forms of imagery analysis. So far, this has proved extremely useful, as it can remain fully legible even when extreme JPG or video compression are applied to it thousands of times.
A piece of software I helped write, called the Marinan Imagery Deconstruction AI System (MIDAS), is being used on captured images of this font. The end objective is to realize the design which has the best all-around Marinan Interpretability Value (MIV) for all the tested platforms - the design which is considered by MIDAS to be the most legible in the most media under the broadest range of use conditions and quality levels.
MIDAS uses a set of considerations made with both humans and computers in mind, so a high MIV does not necessarily equal a better font - it just means one that the system thinks is easier to visually interpret. Note the use of the phrase "visually interpret" as opposed to "read". MIDAS tries to determine how well people and computers can tell what shapes are, not how much enjoyment they'll get from reading or how much strain they might undergo while doing it.
1.0.0 - initial release.
1.0.1 - More Latin support added.
1.0.2 - First batch of tests run.
1.0.3 - gjy5&ßẞ were improved, some glyphs added.
1.0.4 - Second batch of tests run. Space width reduced.
1.0.5 - Experimentally converted to a rounded spurless design, then converted back to a plain spurless after testing. A few new ligatures were added.
1.0.6 - Cyrillic and Greek enter development. Many of these letters must be altered to be distinct from their Latin counterparts.
1.0.7 - Some spacing values changed to increase internal consistency. More difficult tests are being devised. However, since only I seem interested in this type of work, this project is going on hiatus for some time.

SPARSENESS is a minimalistic type design with a modern appearance.
It's main purpose was the aim to perform well even at a small point-size. Therefore the letterforms carefully keep plenty of open space in order to remain legible even at small point-size.
- For the best fontstruct preview set pixel resolution value to 13.
My second attempt to make my own block set
My attempt at a headliner font. This is made to look very regular, even "generic", but also very clearly readable - the sort of font you might expect to see in advertising agencies, publishing houses, hospitals, and government buildings.
Use with kerning turned ON!
High-res version of Marengi.
This is made to be ultramodern and ultraregular, just as high-tech futuristic corporations are wont to make their fonts.
Recommended: Use with kerning and antialiasing turned ON!
What started as a revisit of an old Impulse Tracker font, EK-WINTR, turned into an exercise in clarity and distinct letterforms in a small (4×8) array for as much as I could manage. I'll gladly add accented Latin letters on request (or as I get the urge), and I might have a go at filling in the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets soon if there's demand.
Note: E-Keet Winterlate BC is bicameral (typical upper-and lowercase forms). This is the “Alphabet 26” version (no distinction in forms between upper- and lower case).
Extra note: The vertical metrics are present wonky compared to the BC version because they're primarily calculated off of a few lowercase letters... which are very different between the two! Once FontStruct gains more direct control of vertical metrics, the generated fonts will line up fine.
Revision 2019-11-14: In loose regex terms, revised [MWmwÑñĒ™⇑], moved [₀-₉] to their correct slots, added [£←↑→↓⇒] and Roman numerals.
Revision 2019-11-16: Added [★☆].This is a clone

The main font used by MARENGI Omnisystems in my video game series, "Endless Sea Of Stars". These letterforms can be found engraved into or projected onto practically every piece of MO technology. This script was designed in 2011 to be suitable for printing, logo design, art, and many other purposes. It lacks the constant height which most of my other pixel fonts have, but makes up for it with its bookish appearance.
Unfortunately, replicating the exact design of the antialiased version of this font is impossible, not only on FontStruct, but on all software other than ESOSVM. This is because ESOSVM uses a custom renderer which makes use of proprietary techniques. Marengi HD comes close, but not very.
2.6 (19Aug2018) - "bdďđ" were perfected. Space width reduced.
2.5 (20Jul2018) - "IÌÍÎÏø" were perfected and massive kerning work began.
2.4 (15Jul2018) - "J" was perfected and several letterwidths were altered.
2.3 (18May2018) - "hnru34679ÀÁÂÃÅÈÉÊÌÍÎÏÑÒÓÔÕØÙÚÛÝÞßàáâãåæçèéêìíîïñòóôõøùúûý" were perfected.
2.2 (17May2018) - ":;gjty%/\ÂÆÊÎÔÛâæêîôû¼½¾" were edited for more consistency and readability.
Original size: 11pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
Official font of AMFA (formerly ATMA), the main rival of MARENGI Omnisystems in Endless Sea Of Stars. Appears throughout my games (especially those using the ESOS and ESOS-Lite engines) and is used as the main font of ESOS Terminal A (the one doing the super-long survey).
Between 2012 and 2014, ESOS Journey-Depth AI entities collaborated to produce this specific arrangement of pixels as the most legible form of 1px wide, monochrome 8x8 Latin for electro-optical systems (Marinan Interpretability Value 9.29).
This font is useful if you want to write some really efficient text recognition software for a robot with a camera, or if you want a pixel font which elicits a high degree of reading accuracy. Some would argue that the uppercase makes it less readable, but you'll be hard pressed to find another font that is THIS readable in uppercase only!This is a clone
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!
This was another attempt at a clean geometric sans. It turned out a lot like fs vandyx, but... less "open", perhaps? Anyway, suggestions and critiques welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
Create your own license plate! Surround your text with () or . Use '_' to get a truly blank space; use '|' for an uppercase middle dot, '\' for lowercase. Some alternates are available in Latin Extended A. Suggestions and critiques welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
(2017: I think this idea was sort of a spin-off of fs quotable. I was also experimenting with clean sans like this one at the time, which contributed greatly toward the design of the inner font. The () characters are new and a few letters (regular g, alternate g and Q) have been updated, but other than that everything's pretty much the same as 3 years ago.)
Ethoma is a simple, low-resolution pixel bitmap font, intended to share the industrial, squared visual style seen in Tahoma and MS Sans Serif.
Originally known as Elt. Sistema, Ethoma was designed by Daniel Philip Fox and initially released in May 2017, as a font for personal use which gave the robust results of MS Sans Serif, but avoiding licensing and distribution issues and refining some glyphs for better legibility and crispness. Over time, the font gained incremental changes, for example increasing the roundness of certain glyphs such as the lowercase 'n', eventually forming the present-day version of Ethoma, a highly legible and pixel-optimised bitmap font optimised for any length of body text, without sacrificing the delicious classic look.
A stout, slab serif, large countered, heavy sided, pixel font.
I designed my font around the theme ‘Elegant’ studying the Crown Jewels that are owned by the British Royal Family. I focused on the structure within each jewel and particularly was interested in how the light catches on certain shards within the stones. My initial idea was to shade each of the sections using a different colour, however this proved difficult with the ‘Fontstruct’ software. Eventually instead of shading with different colours I shaded uses the small dots to create a stipple effect which I believe to still be just as effective.
A small variable-width pixel font with slightly heavier capital letters than lower-case ones. Has some quirks to help distinguish letters and numbers (numbers are very narrow and are 5px tall, while capital letters are 6px tall and many lower-case letters are 4px tall). Descender is 2px below the baseline, maximum glyph height is 6px above the baseline. Doesn't use any bricks other than the full square. This version covers only ASCII and a handful of extra punctuation marks, like curly quotes.
