Seeing Beate's gorgeous octagonal font I felt inspired by the shape and those delicious corners. I wish I knew how to be as inventive as she is.
Just a variation of an existing design. Spacing values were changed to break the chains, and "space" & "no-break space" were made blank.This is a clone of Might Chain
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.
Reticular octagonal inline vs. outline thing. Made using an additive method in which no template bricks were removed - though many were replaced with square bricks. The original form is on ",".
Been a while since I did any regular polygonal designs, so here's my go at octagons.
This one was on my backburner list... expect more glyphs soon.
A font I designed for the animation series, "The Boris Barkov Show". This is made to look blocky and industrial, but still fairly modern. It's mostly built on a 5x5 grid, and is perfectly useable as a pixel font, but is meant for high-res applications.
The show's titlecards only use this font in uppercase. But, I designed a lowercase for the sake of accessibility.
The show is about a stereotypically Russian, mustachioed, ushanka-wearing pug named Boris Barkov. Apart from speaking both English and Russian, he's able to play the video game "Escape From Tarkov", wield a sword and rifle, and carry and throw objects despite his lack of opposable thumbs. His nemesis is PugB (the Americanized "Rambo" pug) and he's rumored to have shady dealings with Sam Yippington, the Latvian Dachsund arms dealer...
Another font in the "First of the Month" series.
Based on a shape experiment with octagons this design has grown into a 'real' font fit for headlines and messages to suit October and Hallows Eve/Halloween/Samhein. I'll add MoreLatin diacritics if you need them. It would look good on cards for Halloween.
Happy cloning ... please show us your additions! This octagonal design needs some more punctuation and a few necessary symbols to be 'useful' on posters, folder spines, clothing etc. Courageous folk will add diacritics.
