I was looking for some "decorative" glyphs to embellish greeting cards' frames; having come across one of my Greek sets I decided to make the whole Greek alphabet rather than stop at the 7 symbols I liked for my project.
I love the traditional French biscuits made on the French west coast where Loire meets Atlantic.
The biscuits are thin, crunchy, light, not too large, not very sweet, melt on the tongue, and biscuits very like the original can be made/baked quite easily.
The traditional version has a limited range of letters, enough to write the name of town, manufacturer and product. I've been unsuccessful in finding an image of the font which contributed just a few letters to decorate these biscuits.
I spent some time looking at other type of the Victorian/Art Nouveau era until I had collected enough information to help me design the missing letters. I added the French diacritics, naturally. I think my additions look successful and the whole font looks quite Art Neauveau and in the style used originally.
The square brackets [ and ] make a biscuit shape when used 'blank'.
Bon appetit, enjoy your "Biscuit de l'Ouest".This is a clone of Petit Biscuit
Clauses bring bags of goodies to you. On LC you find numbers for an advent calendar. The UC Clauses give UC letters. Clauses on numerals look into a different direction and offer numbers 0-9. There are also exclamation and question marks, an opened and closed empty bag, and 5 decorated ones.
Enjoy ... Happy Celebrations to you!
This collection of joyful hearts ;) is my 3rd entry for the LOVE competition 2016.
This decorative font consists of the UC and LC in bL, some in mL and exL1, plus a few punctuation marks.
Yes, there are 2 different heart types in here :)
An attraction might be those few special heart glyphs arranged on some of the punctuation (etc) spaces: great to embellish your messages. Or use them to decorate gift tags, stickers, jam jar labels, book marks. Or (using special papers) use the font and/or hearts on iron-on designs for t-shirts, hankies, place mats etc. You could even print your own gift wrap for that special person, printing on continuous paper for large presents ;)
This font was inspired by crockery decorated with a name which I saw offered in a car boot sale. My font's UC has delicately decorated glyps, visible before food is placed on the plates; LC shows plates after the meal, with food remnants covering/filling parts of glyphs ;)
My 'serious' entry for the LoveComp 2016. The dents and hollows in the lines are intentional, the unevennes is an illustration. Love is not a "simple straight-edged neatly tidied" feeling nor a life-long dream-manufactured perfect experience. Every Love has those swirling and rambling sensations and discoveries as well as some uneven blinks-of-an-eye like those dents and bumps in this font, when things and feelings are more like each person involved: complexity needing learning and understanding, uncertainty requiring thoughtfulness and cooperation to smooth things out. Over the years of learning about each other we discover that those uneven areas are part of Nature's magick called Love. We discover that there is only one person like this unique one we love because of what and how they are .........
This seems to have taken inspiration from my First-TP-font "Sandor Basic Stripes" :) but was in fact inspired by shattered windows of a deserted building.
Spiky shapes and sticks that point in all directions: just take a twilight walk trough a forest in the fog.
WIP............... still ....................
The name is Hungarian as we have Hungarian connection in the family and among friends. It means my forest spirit.
No prize for guessing correctly what this is about ;))) Hommage à AFT - Cirque :D I know I'm nowhere near as visionary, courageaous and expressive as he is
These are intended to be used as distance guides. This tool/tutorial/ressource will help members, as it will avoid your wasting time on counting pixels ;) specially useful when you want to set know height/width of a glyph that is larger than the open window of the FontStructor Grid.
Copy and paste the lines that have the dimensions you need -add more lines if your glyphs are higher/wider than the lines I show-, to the left of the blue line and/or below the base line; put them at 3 px distance so that they don't interfere with your work ;)
You only need to paste the lines once ;), into one of the spaces on the glyph band (putting them on a glyph slot that you don't use, it"ll be there for reference even when you switch off the green Extra Guides. Just remember to erase the lines when you've finished your font so that the lines won't disturb you when testing the font in the preview and won't stay when the finished font is being used.
This tool will avoid you having to spend time counting height and width when you want to know the dimensions of your glyph or of one you've cloned. Useful also when you have to make a font that is higher than the working space you give to your Fontstructor Grid, and when a FontStruct competition sets a certain dimension for glyphs, usually 48px (but do read the competition information!!), you'll have the dimensions ready-to-apply.
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.
Reduced height "Gameao". I changed the M and W to avoid splitting bricks as that poses problems in small pixel fonts. 4x7 pixels (merci dpla!)
This font has been made for my grandson who adores anything 'computer' although he is only a little over 1 year old :) I hope he'll like the 'technical/electronic' look of "his" font :) when he is old enough to use his dad's computer for homework (or writing to me?) ...
