Welcome to Tridisaster. It's ALL TRIANGLES, ALL THE TIME. Welcome to Triangle Channel.
Mathematical operators have a distinctive "open" look to help set them apart. There are few exceptions (like ^) because these symbols are used in many non-math contexts.
The only one I'm not sure about at this point is the comma, which works fine for my purposes, but probably makes this font a pain for anyone who tries to read/write at length with it. XD
All Basic Latin is kerned for both cases! Use a mixed case to create weird alien scaffolding! Inverted ",." can be found on "µ¶".

Version 1.3: Added Polish.
Another asymmetrical sans-serif made for use in rulebooks for the Freeform Limitless Adventure Kit (FLAK) pen-and-paper game system. This one is classed as a hybrid and works well at all point sizes!
It began as a Constant Height design, but now I don't classify it as such since most of the letters with diacritics are taller than those without. A few letters (eszett, thorn, eta, etc.) are allowed to descend slightly, as well.
This font has also found some use on signage at a friend's bistro!
A pixel font made to look like fire! Now you can answer (and ask!) your burning questions...
Drawing and editing these takes more time and effort than most other forms of pixel art. Don't expect them to look perfect without some time and effort from YOU, as well. An effect like this requires hand adjustment of every part at every stage.
The coloring, infill color, and effects you use with this font make a drastic difference as to what looks are evoked by its shapes! Scroll down for lots of examples. :^)
Alternates on lowercase!
TODO: Alternates for .,?!@_*#$%&()+/:;<=>[\]^`[|]~†123456890
Original size: 18pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
First attempt at a cursive pixel font. The name derives from an old joke band, whose name is itself a parody of the name of a toy gun by BoomCo, the "Rapid Madness".
Original size: 12pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
09 Mar 2018 - v1.0 released.
10 Mar 2018 - v1.1 released.
13 Mar 2018 - v1.2 released. More Latin support added. The capital letters were cleaned up to make them nicer-looking when appearing in isolation. Excess spaces/lengths of line were reduced to make for denser-looking, more naturally handwritten words.
02 Apr 2018 - "More Latin" and "Google Fonts Basic" ranges finished. More shortening/optimization done for the extended Latin letters.
By request, "a font that looks like a hybrid of Greek and Latin".
This is designed to be modular. UPPER CASE contains the standard glyphs. Alternates are on the lowercase as well as the More Latin band.
"Novus Graecorum" means "The New Greek".
Supports Dutch, English, and Greek!
Version 1.3: Added Polish and started on Cyrillic.
Experimental polygonal superthick decolike.
My submission for 2020's competition, "Future".
By request, an abstract, condensed, and slightly futuristic thinliner stencil.
This is similar to a fusion of "Migrator" and "Aegris Outline".
The metrics for this one are not finalized yet. Various versions of this are being tried out, and the feedback will affect how this font changes. (Presently, the overall spacing is a bit wider than the internal spacing of glyphs like “”).
A quirky Pseudostencil design with a central horizontal slot going through it. The "slot" is 1 brick tall for lowercase and 2 for uppercase, and becomes a vertical slot for numerals and certain symbols.
This is named for the cowboy and lasagna emojis. These were repeatedly added to then removed from several popular chat clients and websites. Changing emoji standardization or government conspiracy? YOU DECIDE.
V1.1: The More Latin is in progress.
Another doodle... Well, shall I continue this one?
I sort of designed myself into a corner with the uppercase, by not using the same grid size as the lowercase. But, this choice led to an interesting and unique look so I'll keep it.
A small-grid font with character.
- No angles.
- Asymmetry should be present wherever feasible.
Lawgivers' font. Vertical members are doubled, horizontal members are not - except when needed to complete vertical members. Overhangs and bends help to make glyphs more distinctive.
Original size: 5.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
A 12x12 pixel font designed for use alongside microfonts, especially the "Derpberd" family it's modeled after. These large letters help decorate the start of a new chapter in a manner similar to the art fonts of illuminated manuscripts. I think this makes a decent "high-tech" or "board game" font, too! :D
Alternate style on lowercase (alternate ,.!? are on <>/~). The symbols and numerals have a slightly altered frame to help differentiate them and add some flavor.
A sunburst pattern was converted to negative space, resulting in little spiders!
Experimental brush/pen thing. Has a slightly spooky look. Because of their tapering curves, many glyphs can render with a "split" or "stencil" look about them. This is due to software-imposed limitations on vector rendering. Designs which share this property can be considered Pseudostencils.
This design is not informed or inspired by any existing typographical traditions. I set out to make the "claw" bricks (as I call them) into a font and this is the result.
By request, a "junk font". Looks pointy, glitchy, fuzzy, janky, grungy, burned, rusty, distressed by power tools, or some superposition of ONE OF THESE OR MORE, depending on the size used and the rendering effects (antialiasing, smoothing, etc).
Rather than force the letters into convincing classical forms, I focused on making sure each letter was thoroughly scrambled. This design could in theory be used with an image-recognition script in order to be put to cryptographic uses... the result would be fun, but not very efficient or crackproof. UC is the same as LC, at least for now.
The original brick-of-bricks is located on ".". This is the template from which the other glyphs were made.
1. Up to 25 distinct bricks from the palette may be used in the overall construction.
2. Each glyph will incorporate a heterogeneous mix of these bricks.
3. Bricks may not be flipped, rotated, stacked or composited.
Asymmetrical alien techno stencil.
This uses some experimental techniques, of course, but I'm not sure how to concisely explain those. Let's just say that each type of line bend and line connection has a rule associated with it. These get naturally modified by the structural asymmetry the font has so that simple rules appear in many forms and variations.
Some kind of great big ol' chain.
In retrospect, I think it looks like a jewelry chain from a dwarven civilization. Perhaps the hypothetical jeweler cut and ground the stones in an imitation of some dwarven font!
When glyphs are used in isolation, they somewhat resemble carved signets or seals. Increasing the letter spacing allows you to create a variation of the design. (This is something that must be done in-software since the font will render as monospaced by default.)
12SEP2018: Added lowercase... the low resolution combined with the design method make it very difficult to render distinctive lowercase versions of every letter, but I'll keep working on it. There's a lot of similarity between pairs like S/5, Z/2, etc., so this font is most effectively used in forms of writing wherein context suffices to inform the reader as to the identity of each glyph (lists, prose, and technical writings). If you want to use this in a password system or something, I recommend using one case's glyphs only.
1. Negative spaces will be areas of 0.5 bricks' effective length or width.
2. Negative spaces may exceed the 0.5 measurement only by increments of 0.5 and in only one dimension at a time.
3. Glyphs will fill their framed canvasses to the greatest extent possible while adhering to the other rules.
Handwritten medieval pixel font in 5x5. This one has a subtle rightward momentum which is imparted by the slants of letters and the positions of curves/angle changes. The idea is a font that inspires one to continue forward and onward, or at least further to the right.
These Guild fonts are meant to convey different professions while using extremely small canvases. They're small enough to be used on practically any computer system or game console.
Original size: 4.5pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
