Coloured version of zulu. You can use the second different version of each glyph to avoid repetition in some words. These colours are inspired by a 2010 poster from the Apeloig's studio.This is a clone of zulu eYe/FS
Unicase font with alternates. Special characters: Blank space at the "\", "LT" pair (kerned) at the "fi" ligature and the "TJ" pair is at the "fl" too. Better to see the font at big size. Enjoy and Happy New Year 2023!This is a clone
A jazzy, unicase, unique typeface!
i am posting this late at night, becuase i know due to time zones, it's morning right now. So, here i am at 1:14am, trying to post this late at night, so people wide awake somewhere else see this!
Years ago, a small font from 2008 caught my eye. Now I've dared to use its structure to modify and complete it, and thus create a new visual experiment. I'm sorry, diacritics are the weak point. Hope you like it. ¡Y Feliz Navidad a todos, amigos!This is a clone
Republished with some accents, diacritics, etc. Likely still in progress (as if anything is ever really finished.) Cheers,This is a clone
SANS SERIFSCO — Humanist / Neo-Grotesque Sans-Serif
A contemporary neo-grotesque sans-serif design with regular weight.
I tried to add subtle diverse and nuanced visual elegance while still remaining minimalistic. Most significant feature is the subtle stroke modulations, distinguishing this from a more geometric style.
Designed to be versatile and suitable for a wide range of different purposes and optimized for legibility in small point size body copy.
The font was constructed on a large grid using linear interpolation (also known as faux-Bézier method). This allowed the most freedom for constructing more complex custom forms, curvatures and all the various stroke modulations.
The font has a total vertical height of 88 square grid units, this is including all optical compensations, ascends / descends and accents.
Another unicase with alternates and also an optical experiment (this time based in a certain way on some works by the great Philippe Apeloig). Optional filled space placed in the "^" glyph.
INNERCITY — Geometric future retro display grotesque
Geometric unicase display sans with a stylistic filled counter-like (Uc) set and monolinear 'bare-boned' geometric grotesque (Lc) set.
— Full alphanumeric dual-variant font !!
Elmoyenique's "zenzura" (a very stylish work in it's own right, make sure to check that one as well) anyway,
His 'zenzura' font kind of struck me with a healthy fresh dose of motivation. In the past I've explored somewhat similar style designs, but none of those ever really got consolidated into the extensive and complete work Elmo delivered with his stunning zenzura.
So I decided to dig up one of my older such projects and see if this new motivational boost could turn 'half'-a-font into a complete piece.
Long story short, this update is the result of that venture.
Where previously this project came in just one style (filled counters), with no additional glyph alternates. Basically a complete absense of the lowercase-string all together, and only very limited complementary set of symbols and punctuation marks were present. Neither did the previous version had a great deal of refinement in terms of metrics / kerning and overall horizontal distribution of type-set material. So, it was nothing more than a plain doodle of the idea I had back then, that had to be preserved for a later stage.
But being drawn into more recent projects at the time I eventually ren dry on motivation to fully finalize this I ended up publishing it in its rough state.
ABOUT THE UPDATE:
The'bare-boned' lowercase is a somewhat futuristic geometric looking form, whereas the filled uppercase set has a strong retro vibe.
Combined in 'mixed-case' it can make a cool optional decorative style capitalization for your text. Used in isolation the two styles (Uc, Lc) both could be used as two seporate fonts, allowing stylistic text hierarchy.
In addition to the stylish retro-like, and partially filled forms I included a glyph-alternative set that strips the letterforms down to their monolinear core-geometric essence.
The design of this set is characterized by the spacious, sharp and clear appearance, that looks slightly futuristic but fashionable still.
With this new addition being the more legible and clean form of the two style sets, I placed this variation into the lowercase-string, making this the default-style for the font.
For the numerals, symbols and punctuations, I tried to remain committed to the stylish filled nature of the uppercase set.
A full alternative monolinear and 'bare-boned' numeral counterpart is located in the 'Full Width' Unicode block. Two extra weight variations for the brackets are also included for a more precise personal preference..
— And so it finally could respectably considered being a full font after all.
Thats all folks.. Enjoy !

Another optical experiment, testing border areas. Sorry if sometimes it's a bit hard to read and it shakes your vision, but that was the idea. It has only been possible using the colour options available to FontStruct Patrons. Thanks once again to Big Rob Meek. PS: "2 in 1 font", the black version of the SVG file also can works like an usual B/W font.
BOUWHUIS - 'Bauhaus'-modernism inspired minimalist geometric sans
I am in a Bauhaus-vibe last couple of day..
So here is yet another venture into the
modernist minimalism aesthetics of the previous century.
This Font losely draws on the basic concept for the 'Universal Type' that was originally designed by Bauhaus student Herbert Bayer.
It's basically a hugely inspired tribute to Herbert Bayer's several forms of ―'Universal'.
But I want to be clear on the fact that this isn't a revival of the original alphabet or anything along those lines for that matter.
Instead it is a intermingling personal interpretation of his multiple works and ideas. Attempting to merge this recollection of Bayer's rational 'functionalist'-approach towards combining aesthetics and function, as by which he is answering to the 'Bauhaus'-philosophy and the 'Form follows function'― design principle.
But besides being a 'inspired' recollection, still the main focus for this FontStruction was to come up with this personalized and stylistic derivative version that pays homage to various of his original work. Unifying the various characteristic Bayer idea's-n-bits within my personal visual representation of the general concept into a new piece.
For it's primary style-concept I envisioned BOUWHUIS being something fresh and somewhat different from the gross majority of similar inspired works out there. This led to the decision for going with a more contemporary and modernized (― as oposed to modernist) style lettering.
In addition to that I pursued a much more vibrant and nuanced typographers sensitivity towards letterform calligraphy and decorative features.
Strong geometric core elements of the font make up for a expressive simplistic structural basic form and it has 'zero' stroke modulation for thickness.
It's regular weight combined with that predominant circular and square-based geometry of the letterforms result in this 'open', and overall ventilated characteristic of the design.
The typical crude appearance that usually comes with a strong geometric sans like this was compensated for in BOUWHUIS by the design's subtle deviations in form and the various decorative calligraphic letter-components.
Something that completely denied Bayer's principle in approach to modern typography and to create an "idealist typeface" was; The reintroduction of it's uppercase letters.
Part of Bayer's rationale was to simplify typesetting, strip all that he felt was unnecessary or the typeface had no need for in order to function, till there was not much more left than just the nearly bare-naked form.
It seems that unintentionally some innuendo of Art-Deco―flavoured hints also found their way into parts of this design.... ―Hmmmz
― but I think I like them, so no worries on behalf of that
As a little bonus topping it all off there is also a super tiny experimental lowercase caracter-set (X-Height=1 grid unit)
Located in the Unicode block for "Halfwidth and fullwidth forms"
I hope y'all like it so far, more will follow soon.

───── 「 SUMMARY 」
This is yet another deep dive into the very small and tiny quantum realm of FontStruct's small grid and light-weight stokes.
Unlike some of my previous endeavours into this dark corner of the FS-editor, which could have dizzying complexity in forms, this project for once didn't stress the sh....*t out of me by stretching the limits for my capabilities beyond what is still comfortable this time. Nor did it drain every last frigging bit of my knowledge or clever creative insight to pull it off.
On the contrary,
For once it remained largely a pretty straight forward and easy project in terms of forms and geometry. The absence for most of the 'bar-raising' features such as diagonal forms, rounded, transitions or stroke modulation made this 'FontStruction' that much more easy.
And when metaphorically breaking it down to the bare naked form and necessities, this design mainly consist of FS's (default)-brick set, resized modifications of those, combined with a set of stacked composites.
There a still a number of things I'd rather seen differently, and will see later attempts at making improvement, but taken in a broad perspective most of the included material so far look pretty fine to me already. And to point out one of the things that is still bugging actually are the 'accented' letters.
Some glyphs have odd values for their 'character'-width, and this makes it impossible to achieve 'grid to em-square'-bounding box allignement in FS's editor. So accents in these asymmetrical values look slightly ofset.
― "Changing character widths to nearest even value is simply far too destructive to the stylish characteristics of the fonts appearance"
───── 「 ABOUT THE FONT 」
In the end it became a pretty cool looking light-weight geometric modernist sans-serif style that at the same time has strong hints of Art-Deco-style lettering as well.
And apart from the minor things it fell short with, I think there is a lot about its overall character-set design and forms that is looking pretty darn rad actually if you ask me.
Content-wise the font is a single case design in a 'all-caps' or Majuscule style. The (Lc)-string was kept empty for deliberately for the technical reason of preserving all the (default)-blank metrics data for any further design updates.
───── 「 WHATS INSIDE 」
A little bit of everything...

Put a smile on your night. A happy Halloween to everybody! PS: Take a look to the lowercase, please, Someone is waiting for you...
My take on a thin sans.
It should cover all Western European languages (plus Hawaiian and Hepburn romanisation).

STF_ELEGANZA (Therapy) - Contemporary geometric humanist sans
A font style, that while simplified by old tradition, saw new light by modern sophistication.
It comes in a solid medium weight that is very suitable for body style text with good readability, But it does perfect clear headlines or advertisement as well.
The goal was to make a clean but somewhat more contemporary and playful take on a 'Grotesque' sans-style.
In an attempt to break away from the traditional trend of Grotesque type designs which evolved more around pure geometric shapes and aim for perfect circular, triangular or square shaped letterforms, and in return give many of them a somewhat harsch and featureless mechanical appearance. I choose to achieve the opposite, aiming for a softer, friendlier and more humanized feeling instead.

This is the 'Therapy'-style in the 'ELEGANZA' typeface family. This version basically aims for the exact opposite effect than what the Tight' version did. The name 'Therapy' relates to its 'opened-up' appearence and the overall de-stressed propperties of this version. The more relaxed and spacious distribution remotely resembles the characteristic feel of a typewriter face. But the main purpose for this version is to create visual hierarchy in your layout.
The other style vatiation can be found here ELEGANZA (Tight)

This font is a not too curious case. It comes after trying to prove to myself (with a high percentage of satisfaction, but not quite yet) that FS can allow me to create pro-looking fonts. I am thinking, for example, of zerena, zchreibengroß, zimmera, zenando, zenantoo, zanze, zinckel and others like that. Every time I finish a font that has taken me a long time to complete, I feel the need to look back and do something more relaxed and simple. Thus, without any pretense but feeling fun and friendly, zikiya was born. Hope you like it.
Prajna is a Sanskrit word meaning wisdom, understanding, insight. Simple on the outside, with some depth on the inside. Looks like it could be 1:1 bricks, but it actually uses a 1.5 sized brick width, giving it additional curvature that wouldn't be possible on a 1:1 scale.
I was supposed to release this a year ago, synchronous to the Peace 2.0 sculpture that was publicly unveiled which utilized Prajna to spell out "Peace" in 12 different languages. I like to think that since the sculpture was written with Prajna, it has a literal connection with wisdom, understanding and insight. I release it now with the hope that you may write with Prajna of your own.

ALIEN WORMHOLE (BOLD) - Monolinear Sci-Fi-inspired 'worm' typeface.
This is a 'Bold' style version to the "ALIEN WORMHOLE" type family.
This version has a ton of extra character compared to the 'Light' version.
For now only the two 'Basic Latin' sets, some symbols and a small number of puctuation marks match. And it remains to be seen if I can translate back to the Light version all those extra's that were put into this Bold version.
I mentioned 'type family' earlier, but in reality there isn't a whole lot of family just yet. Since the two for now hardly correlate truly.
Here is a link to the 'Light' version
Stay tuned for future updates.

BENGALIQUE - Contemporary grotesk type
A condensed geometric Grotesque style, that at first glimpse looks somewhat simplistic. And for the larger part this is true. The goal was to do a ever so slightly spiced up take on this 19th Century classic style.
At it's core, the letterforms have this strong geometric grotesque backbone that is easy to recognize.
While trying to preserve that unpolished characteristic classic Grotesque basic form, I attempted implementing some personal twists, hoping to make a more contemporary but faithful variation to it's crude classic renegade traditions.
Some of the more distinguishing features for this font are it's heavily condensed style, the somewhat quirky curvatures, overshoot and/-or tapered ends in certain 'sweet spots' on a glyph's leg or terminal.
At random some legs will also ascend and descend just a tiny tad bit, gently adding this extra layer of dynamic depth and playfulness.
Spurs are slightly tapered, counters, negative spaces are in mostly rectangular and do not mirror their convex outer curves, in fact the only concave curvatures within a partially enclosed negative space are those that have strokes intersecting or when a curved shape is used to replace diagonals.
(such as; "B, Kk, Ss, Xx, Y, Zz" numerals; "2, 3, 5, 8")
Note that a couple more unmentioned characters make use of concave curves as well to accentuate specific choices.
(such as; "R, t, ß, etc.")
Visual corrections and optical compensating was exclusively performed on the top part of the glyphs, not their bottom.
-- Some additional side-bearing and kerning is still required --

The font works best for 'Display Type' at most point size. In smaller quantities it can be used for 'Body Type' as well with some proper adjustments to the horizontal spacing. But, nonetheless the font's condensed nature, it's tight letter spacing and some thinner strokes still heavilly affect the flexibility for legible Body-Type-use.
Recommended size for Digital-Display-use is 28pts or higher, and bellow 20pts the font becomes unreadable in Digital-Display-use. But I hope you like it so far, and feel free to let me know what u guys think! ?
That's all for now folks..
