Just testing an idea. So far it has given me 2 eye aches ;) and has worn down the Fonstruct eraser to a small chunk. I'll add some more glyphs when Meek has put a big jar of new erasers into the Fontstructor :D WIP
Made to print some decorative corners on A4 sheets; this will make a novel Yule gift for someone lucky enough to know me ;)
Of course it could also be used as a code:D
A set of decorative tiles for use as dividers, to call for attention when placed in texts, to use as web backgrounds, etcetc.
UC is 8x8, LC is 7x7.This is a clone
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!)
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
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.
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add some alternates if I feel the need;) but as it has taken me this long to add occasional glyphs adapted from my own unpublished collection I suggest you sit back and find your own muse to invade your mind, encouraging you to add more glyphs and share with us your own versions of this style, based on your own unpublished and experimental fonts.
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.
