I joined Fontstruct to get special fonts for greeting cards I made. Over the years I have learned a lot from seeing the incredible variety of fonts created by members who are using just simple bricks, artistic experiments and a lot of patience; when cloning is allowed I can see and understand fine details to help me develop further, increase my confidence and stimulate my imagination.
I love to design and make fonts for family, friends, for special occasions, and to replace some of those more 'usual' basic fonts on my computer :)
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've added the glyphs I needed for a gift tag.
Naturally I share this extension because that's in the spirit of cloned work.
I found adding the numbers and punctuation marks quite difficult: not only the actual shapes of the bricks and composites and how they join but because keeping the visual effects of joining and linking was surprisingly complicated as I wanted everything to match the feel of the parent font as closely as possible.
If anybody else wants to add further glyphs: please make sure you publish your extension as cloneable, and add your name and year of addition to those already mentioned (in the unicode setting: look for Dingbats)

Good luck Ryan, I hope things will go well with you. Don't hesitate to check your account, no need to publish fonts while you have other things to do. But it would be nice if you could say "hi" in the forum :) when you're logged in

As I felt encouraged by Fontblast to clone and change, I did ;). I'd love to see if others work with "Noodle" ...
I added the UC "T", the 4, € and a few punctuation marks. I kept the original letters of the LC for comparison as well as FontBlast's settings.
"Noodle, al dente" is a clone of NOODLE by FontBlast.
This is a clone of Noodle
