This is a rendition of one of A. V. Hershey's dot fonts from his 1967 paper "Calligraphy for Computers", the "Cartographic" (sans-serif) font, plus a number of glyphs imported from the "Mathematical" font, as well as many additional glyphs drawn in the same/similar style to the original glyphs. This font actually dates to at least as early as June 1963, as it is featured on some diagrams in Hershey's "The Plotting of Maps on a CRT Printer" paper.
I named this kind of randomly, but really like the name and think its fits - not for an obvious reason. It seems FS comps always bring out the creativity in the community. I may be like many regarding FS about the amount of time available to devote to the art and craft of FS design, especially even more during the holiday season. So what does Mr Meek do? Well, I am coining the term 'Gridlock' to mean the inability to use FS even though you want to - akin to writer's block or as FSer cam be 'gridlocked' while working on a font...for whatever reason. Blah, blah. Anyway, it always seems these comps have the insane ability to utterly destroy 'Gridlock' and get things moving again. God bless, Mr Meek.This is a clone
This one-eyed character set places one circle-serif to start or end strokes somewhere on each glyph (except "O") in the set...hence it's name. Angled serifs acting as hands or feeet (or tails?) are used elsewhere. This is derived from the base font (lc) I used for previous efforts. I made it tall and then thought Cyclops (for SerifComp) to use now since I never released it (full disclosure). Anyway, a different view of what serif can be :)This is a clone
Eclectic font. You can even make a led T-shirt for a party. Cyrillic caps while remaining eclectic refers to its Soviet past.

here's another art deco-inspired dot font. started with the lc then slowly built out the basic set. i was going to use the lc for uc as well, then started playing some more :) so here you have follies. i think the name fits since this is a playful set. and it's 2-in-1 - serif and sans serif all in one! and having a good time...at their own folly ;~This is a clone
While suffering some serious fonter's block, here's another "wonky" experiment: this time, based on my "21st Century Dot Matrix" font. Random numbers were used to determine each dot's nudged position for the vertical (–½ / –¼ / 0 / +¼ / +½), and another set of random numbers for the horizontal. Each position had an equal 20% chance of placement.
On the previous "wonky" font ("Wonky Pins"), I adjusted some dots manually to be more visually pleasing, but I refrained from doing that here. Because so many dots were nudged to extreme positions (–½ & +½ vertically and horizontally) WITHOUT further adjustment, the printed text is still legible but definitely not as refined at "Wonky Pins"...
This typeface was also based on 2 sets of dots this time: one randomized set for an even number of dots across a row (6 or 8), and the other set for an odd number of dots (7). Sometimes, even dots and odd dots are used together on the same row in order to match the placement in the original design. These blocks are present in the "À" position. A slightly larger generic block in position "Á" is only present to prevent word processors from 'cutting off' dots nudged too far vertically up or down; initial test printings resulted in ½ dots being printed at those extremes.
Perhaps another "wonky" experiment will place the extreme ends at a lower chance of occurance (perhaps 10%) while the other three (–¼ / 0 / +¼) more at likely at 26.67% each. Or perhaps an even higher chance that the dot is not even nudged at all, with lower likelihoods as you move outwards to the extremes. This might alleviate the need for any manual adjustments, yet still get the point across that something... something has gone wonky with the printer...
it's a dotty deco. the name is a play on zoot suit. i did the uc and was satisfied that it worked as a display font. i had a bunch of lc dot fonts in the trunk and decided to pair up a few to see how they looked together. all share the same uc. that's the zoot suite.
Currently under fontstruction!
'Peranbu' means immense love.
My only entry for the Love comp made hastily at the last day. Mish mash of styles. Comments/suggestions are welcome. :)
I've remade previous AT Sour Love by adding serifs, it fits better for this 45 degree rotated heart. But as previous one, the downloaded font still has rendering issues despite my attempts, most bricks located at lower serifs change into other brick for some unkown reason. Holes in hearts were removed cause they too have rendering issues when downloaded.
A serif font made of dots. Suggestions are welcome.
07/06/13-07/07/13 I went over the font and tidied it up. Adjusted spacing on letters like V and q, added or erased dots to letters such as a and f, made the tittles and such bigger, and refined letters like O and g. V1.2.0
10/01/13 More refining, more refining... Each time I come back, I see things that need improving. V1.3.0
12/19/13 My biggest update yet (literally). I've increased the circles' size from two to four units, making overshoots and much more possible. Every character has been reworked to fit the new size, and the font is now generally more condensed. V2.0
05/14/14 Tweaked many shapes with the nudge tool, and adjusted the 4 to have serifs and a lower crossbar. V2.1
05/17/14 Big edit today. A large portion of the lowercase, as well as some of the uppercase, has been narrowed to match the rest of the font.
05/21/14 M, N and accents updated a bit more.
09/27/18 Fixed the acute on ý (it was previously a grave).
Inspired from Yautja's Advancer, but here I wanted dots to not overlap. They don't touch and approximately have same distance from one another. Turned them into pearls or bubbles, to make it more interesting. Needs tweaking here and there. This was and is fun to make :) Enjoy.This is a clone
