A long time ago I doodled some glyphs on paper and recreated them in the Fontstructor. They took definite shape with the variety of bricks available as I adjusted the design when actually working with the bricks. The original glyphs became part of a new font which stayed dormant for a long time because I had other font projects to work on. While looking for a font to suit my font-a-month series I revived this design, polished the UC, added LC and numbers. The airy look is ideal for summer as ot looks like bites taken out of grilled food.
Hope you enjoy this year's summer foods :)
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?) ...
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
I wanted to celebrate my 5 years of FontStructing, so I looked for a special font among my older unpublished ones.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 :)
Another of my new-style UC stencil fonts. The German word 'Trennung' means 'separation' or 'parting', a fitting name for a stencil I think.
