This is the first font of a "set" which I'll publish on or just before the 1st day of every month, for a year.
This design started out with a blocky look on thick bases to create a kind of joined-up look.
But a glitch on 2 glyphs gave the gap, which I liked upon reflection and recreated on all glyphs. I adjusted spacing and some drops below the baseline.
It is cloneable because I'm sure that my fellow Fontstructors can add great glyphs to make it more useful. The font could do with more symbols, punctuation and some basic diacritics ;)
A dark look and a few crows' beaks for dreary November... it belongs to my "1st of" series for 2016.This is a clone
Another font in the "First of the Month" series.
Based on a shape experiment with octagons this design has grown into a 'real' font fit for headlines and messages to suit October and Hallows Eve/Halloween/Samhein. I'll add MoreLatin diacritics if you need them. It would look good on cards for Halloween.
For April Fool's day I propose a font that requires some "fooling around". I hope that your brain will get your fingers working correctly ;) Beware of the punctuation. Have fun puzzling this out to write correct letters (yesyes it is possible)
Just in time for the "Olympic August", this font is perfect for all sports enthousiasts specially for(followers of) team sports. The font is great for posters and invitations, too. It is ideal for colouring in. Make a blank t-shirt with round neck line by using "[" plus "]".Unfortunately you won't be able to get to type those 'more Latin' glyphs -like the fractions- that aren't on your keyboard. Unless of course you know how to because I don't!
With this font I think I have made a special one for every first of the month for 1 year. I hope you found one or two of the designs pleasing enough to put into your collection or maybe even use.
I made this in the spirit of the "Ondea" font designs which were inspired by Yautja's ethereal compositions :) (one piece is my phone's ringtone, thankyou Yautja!)
As part of my "First of month ..." series here is an outline font for July, ready to fill with juicy summer fruit and (ice) cream :)
Alternative letters with diacritics (free floating instead of attached, easier to read but less fun to look at;) ) are on the LC for French and German texts. An alternative 'S' which doesn't quite follow the construction rules but might be of interest, is on the LC 's'.
A decorative font to celebrate my birthday month :) Inspired by Art Deco elements I saw on a shop window and one of my early designercizes which thankfully I had kept private ;) because it was too muddle-messy to show.
I think that this version looks good enough to offer as my June freebee :D
Further diacritics will follow after summer.
Part of my "1 of" series of fonts I designed to welcome new months.
The "1st of a month" group was a fun idea but I found it a little complicated to do as I don't usually build several different fonts concurrently (ghosting happens too easily).
This font could be used to make tree decorations, gift tags, glass markers, place cards/napkin cards, etc. Just print on sturdy paper in large size and then cut out. Use pale grey ink if you want to decorate this paper base with collage, embroidery/stitching type work; print in coloured inks for a jazzy look which you enhance with dots of glitter glue or sparkly rhinestones. For a hanging decoration thread a length of yarn through the top 'rectangle' or you remove the rectangle's center to thread ribbon through it.
For some different fun you could glue your print on card stock and create greeting cards, jewellry pendants, shoe decorations. With a brooch back it could make a decoration of clothing, gift bags, hats.
Have fun, joyous December dear fellow FontStructivists :) :) :)
With summer and holidays still on the mind I remember museum visits and art exhibitions I enjoyed ... this Art Deco style font seems a fitting offering :)
Artsy kind of font. The name comes from: 1 thick line, 2 thin ones, another thick one, and letters are all lower case. Offering it for a week or so, to get feedback ;) before I make it private again (as I want to try adding Czech, Polish and Hebrew to this). There were a few challenges regarding heights but I think the balance is fine now and the glyphs still legible.
In June my class will celebrate an important anniversary of our Abitur-Baccalaureat certificates, and I'll be offering this font to my classmates and friends.
I'll add LatinA to this soon, hence no DL yet.
I'll be offering this modern rectangular serif font to my class mates and friends when I meet them for an important anniversary of receiving our Abitur-Baccalaureat certificates.
There are some symbols and dingbats I want to add to this, after summer, hence no DL yet.
Angled bricks based on 1:4 // 4:1, also some ready-to-use combos, some straight and angled lines to match the 1:4//4:1 sized bricks, a few 'decorative' elements (could be used to fill lines or counters, or to create entire glyphs) and stacks.
Designed to show how the combos are made as this might help newcomers to understand the technique and enable them to make those they want -- if they can't find them in the excellent tools and sets some members have created.
I'm hoping that someone can add more related lines, bricks, angles, combos, stacks and then help us by publishing their extended clone.
I wanted to celebrate my 5 years of FontStructing, so I looked for a special font among my older unpublished ones. I think this one fits the celebration.
The original text explains my inspiration, a 2-colour swirled soup I made for a special occasion:
When I saw the pattern created by gently pouring crême fraîche across the surface of spinach soup I simply HAD to make a font reminiscent of the flowing shapes and lines slowly spreading across the top and thinning out irregularly. This font looks fine with the standard sample text in smallest pixel size. The larger sized text looks more like the floating dissipating cream on the soup's surface :)
After Dmitriy added the beautiful Cyrillic set I added More Latin and some of that set's punctuation and symbols. That explains the "C+ML" of the name ;) I thought about adding Latin A but at the moment I can't figure out how to set the accents without breaking the ratio between UC-LC heights even further.This is a clone of ABC C
Inspired by a video showing a hairdresser creating a wig for a play........
Many LC glyphs are an alternate to corresponding UC.
I haven't mastered creating good joints between FS bricks and the compos I need to make ""to join"" the two types of brick. Trying to get them to flow into each other produces more or less untidy joining in many places which I find frustrating. Maybe I have to sketch out simpler designs for easy Fontstructing.
Looking at the caron I wonder if the center cross-over brick needs replacing with the one that dips downwards? See the two different bricks in the caron of E and e.This is a clone
Aenvidere (the normal weight version) still needs fine-tuning and kerning, still. That will come, eventually :) At the moment I'm quite busy doing too many things concurrently.
Check the font description for AlexGar-Aenvidere for details.
At a later date I'll publish a squared-off version of this. Aenvidere SQ will have the same glyph style but will be wider than the other versions which might make it less useful as a "tool" to attract attention when added as splash insert in text that uses another Aenvidere version.
Upgraded version of Aenvidere (which is the original 'normal weight' version) made for one of my grandsons. The glyphs in this version have lines of different thicknesses which seems to make them and any text more interesting to look at, yet it continues to be elegant.
Numerals are taller than other glyphs, I wonder if a larger letter space might 'integrate' them more when used in a line of text?
Kerning has been done where necessary = on very few pairs: T+some LCs and F+some LCs but not yet on T and F with the corresponding diacritics; also done are TJ and LT. The "f" has been moved in the grid, and "f" and "l" have adjusted letter space. I think that the shape of the glyphs (with and without adjusting their positions/letter space) reduces greatly the need for kerning. Having said all that I'll print some text to check and will adjust kerning where necessary ---at a later date.
This is the most advanced version of Aenvidere (due to kerning), the other published versions will be kerned at a later date. I'm showing them nevertheless so that you can compare versions.This is a clone of Aenvidere
Thicker lines than Aenvidere AGardin. This is quite chunky. Yet it remains rather (good looking and) elegant. Kerning has to be done (check details of this in the font description on Aenvidere AGardin)This is a clone of Aenvidere Stilo
Based on Aeolingia Decora this version has the basic Latin UC, Cyrillic UC, numbers plus essential symbols and some diacritics for decoration.
Use it for splash text or logos, it can't be used for long text nor for headlines as it is rather abstract.
The modern Rouble symbol is on the LC "er" = pThis is a clone of Aeolingia Decora
