I really liked my last slab serif font, and so I decided to make another one. This time, we've put the file on it and rounded the corners.
Experimented as I usually do with a half-thickness version of the font which looked good enough to do the entire thing over.
Naturally this is more of a body text font than the default Gemini.This is a clone of Gemini
I began doing a serif font, and found that I really liked it when I rounded the corners off a bit. It makes it look rather cyberwestern. Have you ever played Wild Guns on the SNES? It's got that vibe about it.
By request, a small, sporty, polygonal, uppercase serif font. The name is inspired by Hammer from Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. This is quirky, strong, and from nowhere - just like Hammer.
This design seems best for signage, woodcuts, and the like. It carries a bit of a "sports" look too. The numerals and symbols are sans serif to make them look more modern. The asterisk is a hammer. Is it Hammer's hammer or Hammer's brother (who is a hammered Hammer Brother)'s hammer? No one knows.
By request, a semimodular font which looks like a casual interpretation of "General Failure". This is also more condensed and more Pixel Optimized than its predecessor. It makes me think "fire station in a cartoon".
It uses a technique which folds some slabs in, which prevents slabs from altering the heights of letters - but slabs are still allowed to alter width to some extent. The slabs which do this are incorporated into glyphs' structures to such an extent that they are integral parts of the linework.
This could be kerned more closely, but like me, the requestor uses software which doesn't support kerning. Consider the spacing as part of the desired quirkiness.
A vaguely Courierlike OSD (Onscreen Display) font which tries its best to be casual. The name is inspired by the old computer joke: "Who is General Failure and why is he reading my hard disk?"
No filters or faux-beziers, just stock bricks and a bit of stacking/nudging!
More about the design:
It started as a doodle and an attempt to make a smooth, low-resolution, low-poly font, and then it became a Courierlike. I have other fonts that tried to do polygonal round shapes before this (such as Cartoon Riot) but this design is my first real success in this area.
Initially, I made the angled glyphs before the round ones. I didn't want to change the angled ones, so glyphs like C, O, and Q became a bit wider than they are tall. I'm quite fond of this, because in most designs these glyphs tend to have a tall and narrow character. I think the mildly squat look of this font makes it cuter and gives it more personality.
A lot of glyphs were altered in specific ways to look more like metal type, especially anything with diacritics which touch the letters themselves. Other glyphs were altered specifically to be interpretable at small size. I also use angled contours and actual round bricks alongside each other within the same glyphs, another technique which is geared toward style and interpretability at small size.
This font came with many new challenges and an array of new techniques had to be designed. Loops were an insurmountable challenge because of the low resolution and heavy line weight, so I drew rounded areas to suggest them. You can see it on letters like Greek γ, ζ, and ξ.
This started out as an attempt to make a Courier with vertical as well as horizontal serifs. Why do so many of my fonts look like a pirate made them?
A quaint and slightly whimsical serif doodle which quickly turned into something serious!
An experimental slab-serif where the slabs are SQUARES and the crossbars are BONES. I'll add more to this one later.

This is an enhanced version of the retro font you see on old games. Still WIP. The squares are just placeholders and will be removed shortly. I hope to make this have more characters than any other fonts in the future (this might take a while). This font can be used in retro-style games, computer graphics, or anything else you can imagine. This font is pixelated, meaning it is lightweight and easy to port to many devices.This is a clone of Ndless Default Font
This is a remake of a font on a poster. I don't know what's the font so i call it with what the poster says.
It's a bit thicker than the original one
Uppercase is kerned but lowercase is not, because i'm lazy fite meh
American frontier and western inspired display type.
Still needs a little bit of tweaking here and there. Also for some reason leading is not what it supose to be, it runs short a bit. But this is far from problematic.
A cubed slab font is like Rockwell Font. It's more a serif font, the original name is Chino because in the tags there are a tag that says "Chino". the half blocks is for the Uppercase N.
* Comment to tell me what letter needs to be added thx :) *
Ah... It's finally theta, I think i'm going to re-explain Greekia kingdom project here.
Some day in the past. I named one of my font "Alphia Kingdom". And then Betia, Gammania and Deltia etc...
When I made it to Omega. I will make a font "Greekia kingdom" which is basically put some of my favorite letter in a Greekia kingdom font. Aaaaand links to every of Greekia kingdom fonts.
How i came up with this idea is simple. I think Greek alphabet is beautiful and the names of each letters are cool. :P
I've been lazy for a while. But this time, I made more latin! (only the letters m8 u still lazy).
There's a tag "Greekia kingdom". Check it out! :D
Made experimentally as an alternative to "Nimbus Mono L". The serifs just sort of do what they want, sometimes fitting in naturally, sometimes not.
It's not meant to be monospaced, but is meant to have the same sort of neat constant-width look. All uppercase letters and numerals are 5 width, while most of the lowercase letters are 4 width.
Experimental slab-serif. The added height from the serifs is quantized so that the serifs, rather than the normal lines, determine a glyph's geometry.
It reminds me of the Wild West and the old cartoon "The Jetsons" at the same time. It uses two kinds of serifs: normal slabs and "hangover" serifs. The hangovers are the ones that look like overhangs. Is there another name for them? I don't know.
This font is set to appear in several games at once! I'm not the developer of any of them! WOO
Despite what you may have heard, a "hoedown" is just a party.
3x3 slab serif. This is based on Wallerton, Anachronistic Gunslinger, an IRC-based "TV show" which I used to write and produce. All the characters in the show were my AIs pretending they were cowboys.
Well, I managed to successfully produce a lowercase for this one!
Recommended: Use with kerning.
Trying a Courier style. The lowercase has a slightly bottom-heavy design, while the uppercase keeps it consistent. Serifs everywhere!
It fits into typewriter/detective type aesthetics as well as rustic and western ones.
This one is made for a friend. We'll see if they ever end up using it. :v
EDIT: It seems as if said friend is never going to make their webzine... so, feel free to do with this one as you wish.
serifia la printe the name is just trying to pretend like French. It's not French i guess?
So this font is basically serif + filled counter.
it is also for the counter competition.
This is a new 6x6 pixel font with slab serifs on the upper-case letters with the exception of the letter"O", and half slab drop serifs on the lower-case letters again with exception of the letter "o". The numerals, except the zero, all have half slab serifs. All punctuations are without serifs.
Each letter is contained within its own box with upper-case boxes being deeper than lower-case letters, numerals and punctuations.
As you will notice I have used the new white bricks for the glyphs but stayed with the standard black bricks for the boxes. The white bricks are easily read by scanners which means they will have a great future in producing apparently blank bar-codes for useless pricing systems which are meaningless to consumers. White brick fonts are being looked at favourably by oriental, and other, manufacturers who see a great future in their use in cost saving printing of undecipherable assembly instructions.
