A font from the 1849 gold rush.


This looks really good. I would have done a few details differently, but I understand your effort to keep the design consistent. Stray brick at the bottom of X. I hope to see the numbers, special characters, etc. soon. Well Done. 10/10
Comment by Frodo7 27th january 2013
Thanks Frodo7. Special chars coming soon, and I'll fix X right now.
Comment by Noah F. Ross (winty5) 27th january 2013
Fixed X.
Comment by Noah F. Ross (winty5) 27th january 2013
OK - what have you done with winty5? We can see that you are some experienced old typographer who has stolen his identity!

Seriously Noah, this is your best work so far. Anyone should be pleased to have created such a balanced, good looking font. Compare it with Roboto ... then give yourself a big clap on the back. 10/10+

Thanks a lot p2pnut! I have come quite far since Roboto…

Sample coming up...

Great stuff. Looking forward to a fuller charset. I wonder if the letter-spacing could be reduced a little.

@meek: Thanks! I'm working on the numbers. I'll fix the spacing when I get a chance.

Okay, got numbers and some basic punctuation. Will continue to work on this.
Comment by Noah F. Ross (winty5) 28th january 2013
Wow, winty, you've improved so much over the last 3 1/2 months! I won't be surprised if you have a top pick in the next month or two. 11/10 + add fave

Hey, pal, all my congrats!!!! Yeeee-ha!!!!
(BTW, I was glad if you would look this font. This was my first TP and I remember when I was looking to the pink square with the white star inside... and I can't believe this!!!! the day begins better than better, in a just unique manner! I can never forget that moment! Hope you can feel something like this, mi joven compañero!)
Long live FontStruct!

@FB: Thanks, I think some of your fonts DESERVE one! :)

@four: Thanks for the support!

@elmo: I can definitely relate! I remember looking at the live feed:

*Frodo7 commented on...*
*architaraz published...*
*winty5 gets top pick...*
*four commented on......WAIT, WHAT I GOT A TOP PICK?!

I felt elated, like I had just won a prize, and, in a way, I did! :)

Long live FS!!!!

Just changed the Q and the 3. If my font gets a TP, every glyph should deserve the TP!
