A narrow font combining (neo-)gothic inspirations with angular and simplistic influences. It features Latin and Cyrillic characters.
A medieval-themed pixelated font inspired by the Gothic alphabet for videogames and other pixelated needs.
A modern twist on classic black letter type gothic fonts. I was inspired by modern contemporary branding with how they produce formal and high class products with an urban/grunge aesthetic.

====[ EDUCATIVE INTRO ]====
At a time when making books was a very time-consuming and labor-intensive process, an increasingly literate 12th-century Europe required more and more books. To keep up with the increasing demand for the spread of literature was a ongoing struggle. Writing materials such as inks, dyes and parchment were very expensive. And it wasn't until the 15th century, when parchment was largely replaced by paper, along with the arrival of the printing press, for it to gradually became cheaper, faster and less labor-intensive.
So it made perfect sense to find other ways to help with this process.
Simplifying a script and cutting back on the decorative calligraphy was the most effective way of doing this.
This led to the development of simplified variations to pre-existing bookhand scripts. One of such forms is littera textualis, categorizing within the Textualis/Textura or simply Gothic bookhand scripts group.
Littera textualis is the simplest and least calligraphic form of textualis. It was developed with just two main goals in mind, to save time and costs. The simplified letterforms could be written much quicker than the more calligraphic and luxurious variations. It offered a more cost effective and faster version to the script. It was often used for less important literary works and academic papers.
It functioned as the standard bookhand script in the Netherlands during the 14th & 15th centuries.
====[ ABOUT THIS FONT ]====
TEXTUALIS BATAVICUM - A calligraphic inspired Blackletter/Gothic bookhand script. Essentially a Textualis/Textura inspired work.
The design mainly follows the concept for a traditional form of littera textualis bookhand script as was described in the intro written above.
It remains a work in progress and I will add update info for this font in the comment section bellow.
Some character still need slight adjustments, but so far I am very pleased with the result. As you can probably notice, the uppercase characters have slight more weight than the lowercase has.
More characters follow soon.
I hope y'all like it
A modernized geometric monoline gothic script design in progress.
Its a all caps design but with a double sized uppercase.
The style of design metrics made it tough to allign the punctuations so that they all fit both upper & lowercase strings, but I did it the best I could.
No numerals done yet, I might do them soon.

Humanist Gothic style Grotesque.
This was so much friggin work, and still I have only the basics of Larin characters. The amount of work I put into getting the stoke modulations and smooth edges right was unreal. I couldn't be more happy with it so far. I will add more characters to it soon.
What do you guys think so far? Suggestions or tips are more than appreciated.
Contemporary geometric gothic typeface.
The idea was to make a typeface design that would suit small point size body style typography.
The fontstruction is a faux Bezier style approach, this allowed me the most freedom in shaping the different letterforms and curves. Capital height is 36 bricks height.
Font sample is best viewed at 2x pixel size or above for a sharp result.
I hope you like it!
Slight condensed geometric sans-serif style typeface.
The design was inspired by a number of different Dutch and German street signs.
It's aimed at both display & body text with strong legibility.
I think it worked out pretty well and I am pretty keen with the end result.
All caps geometric gothic sans-serif project. Its a semi bold display design that looks a little like those early grotesque types.
The uppercase O has a distinctive circular shape and has a unusual 3x3 grid square dimension. A number of glyphs still need modifications to achieve better solutions. Also is the character set far from complete yet.
I hope you like it so far
Gothica Medieval was inspired by a font called Horde. That said, although the style is from Horde, this font is designed differently.

WORK IN PROGRESS
This time I did a attempt to make a typical contemporary super rounded geometric grotesque typeface. Which is a very popular style for headline and display text. Although I tried to make a contemporary looking typeface, I kind of remained faithful to plain geometry. The design can be slightly compared with that of typefaces such as HAUS Sans, TT Norms and LL Circular (3 great commercial pro fonts that were made by some great other designers!)
One of the most important rules for this was to have near perfect circular letterforms in both upper and lowercase. (So to pull this off propperly it required a large grid faux Bezier approach.) Everything else just enfolded along the way. The design (obviously) geometric grotesque, but also has a neo-grotesque feel as well. The almost quirky looking letter widths give this a very strong early 1900s feel.
While many letters mostly have even stroke widths, upclose you'll notice some stroke width variation is going on after all. This to bring more conttract into certain area's.
It's still a work that is heavily in devellopment, and only the basic character design is completed for now. Next time I will get into its functionality such as multi-language support.
I hope you like it so far
Modern geometric sans-serif design, This is a updated version of the previously published STF_PIPER ALPHA. This version includes support for lowercase and all the other charaters are double checked plus modified where needed.
Enjoy!This is a clone
I tried out some new ideas with this font. I like how spikey it turned out by using the thin curved blocks :)
