Apart from amateur typography, I'm very interested in linguistics and pretty much everything regarding language. I study linguistics at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH).
The Danish language uses the latin alphabet plus three extra letters (æ, ø and å), and I hate it when they are missing from a font. Thus I sympathise with the other languages that use diacritics or alternate writing systems and therefore I make fonts with many characters. The thing is when I start I don't seem to be able to stop again.

Something as simple and boring as a monospaced, octagonal, sans serif font. But it has great unicode support!

A monospaced pixel font with over 8000 glyphs! 7 pixels wide, 12 pixels tall. Some characters may be wider than 7 pixels to make them connect with other characters.

I created this font by trying to replicate the font Monty Python used to write the title. Now with some punctuation. currently working on Greek and cyrillic.

A font, in which every character consists of two or more interlocking shapes. Slightly inspired by Thalamic's "fs Six Sticks".
I might do some alternates in the lower case area, and possibly also numbers. But I really shouldn't. Funny how creativity flows, when you should be doing something else :p

This font almost made itself, when I found out that you could make an almost regular hexagon with vertical segments 9 bricks long and angled segments at 4*sqrt(5) = 8.94

Clone of Squarific. I did call it a font family, so here is the second member. Still a work in progress.This is a clone of Squarific

I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands, which resulted in this font. The initial idea was to make a font inspired by the (handwritten?) signs in retail stores, but it quickly took a turn for the more comic.

Utilizing the propeller bricks to make curves with split ends. To make banner ends use (parentheses) and [square brackets], and use the underscore between letters to continue the banner. Here is an [e_x_a_m_p_l_e)

Old celtic style font. Now with some diacritics and variants. Most of the vowels can have an acute over them, and many of the consonants can have dots. The dots make them be pronounced as if they were followed by an H, e.g. Th, Sh. Ë is a variant of R, Ì is a variant of S and Î is a variant of S with a dot above. Ï is the Irish symbol for "agus" or "and".

I wanted to make a vertically heavy font, and what better sources of inspiration than Arabic script and Western typography. I think it made a good mix; it seems very desert like.

This font combines the aestethics of Fraktur and Roman typefaces. It is also (now fully) stencil. But you would need a strong material for the schabelons, as most counters only have one opening. // The name "Düpbøl" is the combination of the German and Danish names of the same town in Southern Jutland ("Düppel" and "Dybbøl" respectively).

I made this, because I was bothered with the quality of the font used on the displays of the Copenhagen Metro. So this is an attempt to make a better font under the same restrictions (i.e. a display with a height of 14 LED lamps). The o - and possibly other characters - are the same as in the current font. But I made sure the M became similar to the logo of the metro. Don't mind the IPA, I just went a bit wild...

I thought the round celtic/gaelic/insular forms of the latin letters would lend themselves well to a typewriter-esque font. Only later did I google it to find that Michael Everson is the king of this area.
Now I should really get back to my exam paper.

This font consists purely of elements of musical notation. Some of the letters are a bit far fetched and it is only barely legible, but I like it, and maybe you should use it for musical notes instead of text.

This is a tall monospaced font, so I had to get a bit creative with some of the glyphs. But I think it's relatively legible.

I hope this qualifies as an inline ;) Each letter consists of one continuous line, zig-zagging back and forth to create the illusion of high contrast. The letters A, G, J, K, M, R, U, V, W, Y, Z have alternates in lower case. Other letters may need some more work.
