MODERN TYPEWRITER - Typewriter style Slab-Serif
The idea was do a simple, clean and solid looking design that mimics the looks of a classic typewriter style typeface used for form fill writing style.
The rectangular shaped concept was carefully chosen to provide this nice mechanical looking forms, and to further enhance the technical style concept of this design.

STF_SKYR SLAB - A modern slab serif design.
First of all, Hi everyone,
I hope you all doing great...
Seems that for now I have found my way back here, after being away from Fontstruct for nearly 2 years.
I got to admit that I experienced some ring rust at first. lol
Anyway, here is my latest fontstruction, the first one in 2 years.
So far the main design concept and the basic minimum glyph set is about completed, and I am pretty pleased with the result up untill this point.
More technical details on the design and concept as well as demo gfx can be found down in the comment section.
I hope you like it too so far
This font has separate characters for Ð, Đ, and Ɖ!
Based off the font on Gary Numan's 1979 albums, Cars and The Pleasure Principle. I learned just now it's called Aquarius, a little font designed in 1972.
this is like my 60th font in FontStruct, i hope you like it.

From the Mjölnir (Thor's war hammer) family. The Razor style denotes how sharp I made all of the lower serifs and other aspects of the design, while keeping that heavy slab hammer 'top'.
I am a carpenter (of sorts) and this has to do with the fact that my hammer has a head divided into a blunt blow tool end and a prying end, usually for nails. I decided I wanted a version with a pry bar so sharp... GEEZ! look at that, I cut myself. Bloody hell.This is a clone of Mjölnir_FS

Mjölnir is the name of Thor's hammer (God of War), hence, I tried to make the letters resemble some sort of new fangled hammer.This is a clone of Mjölnir_FS

A surprisingly modern Western-themed type. Put pretty much every European language I could think of in here, therefore it's probably the most time-consuming one I've ever done.
I really liked my last slab serif font, and so I decided to make another one. This time, we've put the file on it and rounded the corners.
Experimented as I usually do with a half-thickness version of the font which looked good enough to do the entire thing over.
Naturally this is more of a body text font than the default Gemini.This is a clone of Gemini
I began doing a serif font, and found that I really liked it when I rounded the corners off a bit. It makes it look rather cyberwestern. Have you ever played Wild Guns on the SNES? It's got that vibe about it.
Just a Western font inspired by other Western fonts like "Bottoms" by rilencavy and "Western Calligraphic" by Wataru Aiso.
There are only a few characters in this font, and some of the punctuation might not be original.

Oh yeah, I design logos, websites, graphics, ads, marketing campaigns, PCs, and just about anything, really. -DPThis is a clone
A quirky Pseudostencil design with a central horizontal slot going through it. The "slot" is 1 brick tall for lowercase and 2 for uppercase, and becomes a vertical slot for numerals and certain symbols.
This is named for the cowboy and lasagna emojis. These were repeatedly added to then removed from several popular chat clients and websites. Changing emoji standardization or government conspiracy? YOU DECIDE.
By request, a semimodular font which looks like a casual interpretation of "General Failure". This is also more condensed and more Pixel Optimized than its predecessor. It makes me think "fire station in a cartoon".
It uses a technique which folds some slabs in, which prevents slabs from altering the heights of letters - but slabs are still allowed to alter width to some extent. The slabs which do this are incorporated into glyphs' structures to such an extent that they are integral parts of the linework.
This could be kerned more closely, but like me, the requestor uses software which doesn't support kerning. Consider the spacing as part of the desired quirkiness.
A slightly warped version of a pixel font. I made the slanted edges out of 1/12 triangles.
A vaguely Courierlike OSD (Onscreen Display) font which tries its best to be casual. The name is inspired by the old computer joke: "Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard disk?"
No filters or faux-beziers, just stock bricks and a bit of stacking/nudging!
More about the design:
It started as a doodle and an attempt to make a smooth, low-resolution, low-poly font, and then it became a Courierlike. I have other fonts that tried to do polygonal round shapes before this (such as Cartoon Riot) but this design is my first real success in this area.
Initially, I made the angled glyphs before the round ones. I didn't want to change the angled ones, so glyphs like C, O, and Q became a bit wider than they are tall. I'm quite fond of this, because in most designs these glyphs tend to have a tall and narrow character. I think the mildly squat look of this font makes it cuter and gives it more personality.
A lot of glyphs were altered in specific ways to look more like metal type, especially anything with diacritics which touch the letters themselves. Other glyphs were altered specifically to be interpretable at small size. I also use angled contours and actual round bricks alongside each other within the same glyphs, another technique which is geared toward style and interpretability at small size.
This font came with many new challenges and an array of new techniques had to be designed. Loops were an insurmountable challenge because of the low resolution and heavy line weight, so I drew rounded areas to suggest them. You can see it on letters like Greek γ, ζ, and ξ.
