This is a remix of an old Rian Hughes font called "Darkside". I boiled down the geometry, added slightly rounded outer corners--and a whole new set of upper case characters. (Hughes’ font had only lower case).

A "deconstructed" exercise. I got the idea when I fontstructed in a grid that turned out to be a bit narrow. I could only place two of three horizontal lines where I wanted them, so I decided to see what happened if I simply skipped the third. The result turned out to be quite legible even though many glyphs had gaps where the important baseline should be. I especially liked the lower case letters. The concept is presumably not unique though...

A heavy boxlike font. Exaggerated stroke weight and minimum space within the glyphs. An idea seen before ("Loudine" by Pintassilgo Prints, "GF Special 150" by Gigofonts), but I´ve tried to make something rigid-looking yet personal out of it. I kind of like thoose tiny miniature serifs, and haven´t had an opportunity to use them--until now...

Inspired by the fantastic "MICR" font set. And the Solaris font design from the nineties by Büro Destruct (ah, those were the days). Old but good ideas brought to Fonstruct. Fun and easy as pie.

Based on letters I saw in some fashion magazine many years ago. I found an old note with my hand-drawn sketches of it the other day, and realized it would be perfect for FontStruct. Based on a simple 3x6 grid and very few brick-shapes. Kind of organic and playful letters anyway..

Another typographic bulldozer. Inspired by "Astro" and other excellent fonts by the Japanese designers at Maniackers Design (http://mksd.jp/).

A fat face, in the same school as "MegaSpacer", but this one has more bulk and huge differences between thick and thin. And it comes with upper case characters.

My remix of "Revolution" by Douglas Carter, 1994. I made it a bit heavier and added upper case characters. It´s a robotic deco style, very square and compressed, but slightly rounded inner corners (visible at large sizes) adds some life to it.
