This font atempts to represent letters that look like what is called the "God's Eye" yarn project for children, which has to do with winding colorful yarn around two crossed sticks. I've decided to double the size so that the X and T have the same internal dimensions.
@This is an extended version of Ostara Aria and more elaborate than the "Kerbe" designs. I changed the look of the LC and adjusted some of the UC.
Now the UC lace is better structured and distributed; glyphs A,N,M,U,V,X,Yand their LC, and @,7 and quotation marks have changed shape slightly; missing glyphs on the More Latin set (and the entire ExtendedLatin1 for my family, friends and aquaintances across Europe) needed quite some work due to the ornate sections - I hadn't planned on making this many glyphs, the ornate look was just intended for display UC of English, German and French and not for any other glyphs. Getting diacritics to look good with the decorated UC glyphs was a challenge but I think the ones I've decided to use don't overdo the ornateness nor distract from the glyph's shape.
Due to the new glyphs and diacritics I should have added 1 pixel height to accommodate the decorative lace element more obviously. Instead I changed some shape-rules ever so slightly to have an easier time adding the lace brick.
The LC is now solid black; diacritics have some added lace to integrate better in the design. The LC gives a separate font which might be of interest for headlines, advertising, on signs, cut to sew on fabric etc.
Note that there are still some adjustments/spacing needed; the kerning isn't finished yet either. I'm publishing this to get constructive comments -- and praise ;)
[youmoor]I plead for an algorythm that allows one strange/incomplete comment or (psychosocial) pinaillage for every 1 or 2 sincere (++explained) praises :D Applicable not every minute of the year you understand, only from GMT 0:001h Mondays to GMT 23:599h Sundays [/yoomoor].
The font's name is Malagache.
Inspired by trying to thread heddles on a 4-shafter .........
The design uses a lot of nudging, a little stacking and composites, using some of the exciting extended capabilities of the FontStructor.
The font's name is Maori and means "weaving".
This font is as finished as I need to have it at the moment. I'll add a few more glyphs later.
This type face is based off of the word decorate and the adjective decorative. Within the development of this design I took inspiration from embellishment and a craft style of working which is how the cross stitch came to light. This type is lowercase, it is meant for smaller bodies text. It will work best in a 12 or 14pt body as if the type is too small it will be difficult to see the detail. Though CrossStitchNS is probably not suitable for headers it would be perfect for texts such as invitations. I hope you enjoy this font as much as I enjoyed making it. x
