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 .........
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.
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?) ...
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.
Fun inspiration. I might add some alternates if I feel the need;) but as it has taken me this long to add occasional glyphs adapted from my own unpublished collection I suggest you sit back and find your own muse to invade your mind, encouraging you to add more glyphs and share with us your own versions of this style, based on your own unpublished and experimental fonts.
I recently saw a type face with bits missing and thought "Looks interesting, can I do something with this idea?". I used one of my older sans designs but soon discovered that I needed serifs to get logic to the gaps ;) So I started work on a good serif design to use as the base. Here is my interpretation of what I saw, it looks rather different from the one that inspired me.
Happy cloning ... please show us your additions! This octagonal design needs some more punctuation and a few necessary symbols to be 'useful' on posters, folder spines, clothing etc. Courageous folk will add diacritics.
