I genuinely enjoy creating fonts. I like to look at how letters are associated with each other, visually. Perhaps how a style should carry itself through a character set.
Sometimes the relationships between a capital letter and its lowercase counterpart. I may make little adjustments so that once in a while these often visually orphaned letter associations actually make sense when they otherwise wouldn't. Other times I welcome the antithesis of that, where it is never a consideration.
I previously design logos, websites, branding packages and marketing campaigns for small business. I was big on social marketing, loved it. Thanks to Facebook, Google and Twitter for betraying all of mankind and screwing every one of us, I no longer feel that my profession is a worthy endeavour. I lived on social marketing and they conducted treason against all of humanity.
So, I am retired and now my art is my full-time, fonts included. I still support my reg/hosting customers, as required.
Starfield & Stripes Copyright 2014 - 2019 Doug Peters. Stars & Stripes composite version. Demo of a layered font I am working on, where the starfield is on one layer, the stars are on another layer, stripes on another, a background on yet another, and there is also an outline font and a composite font that I am working on. Each glyph is (of course) the same width as the corresponding glyph in any of the other layers, so that when you duplicate the final edit for a text layer, you simply change the new duplicated layer's font to the chosen layer and then select all and chose your color. This way you can have white stars on navy starfield with red stripes over a white background and a golden outline. The outline font can be placed underneath for a thin shadow outline, or over all the fonts for a thick, bold outline. And of course, you can choose your own color for each font and only use the layered fonts you want to.
This font reflects the design of the characters with the starfield design & stripes design font layers, and can act as a placeholder for the layered fonts (and has also been nudged over to clear a spot for the outline layer). Glyphs are the same width and used the exact same kerning.
"Discopatentiously Obstructivenating Free Demo" font Copyright 2016-2019 Doug Peters and is 'Free for Personal Use' only to demonstrate the full font from which this beast was cloned ("Discopatentiously Obstructivenating" which is also by me, Doug Peters, and I will continue to develop that version).
This is my own clone of the original version. It may look a little like my Kindegraf or Sketchy fonts, as it's my handwriting with a mouse, and I bet there isn't a lot of deviation there (with the handwriting) but it IS different. This free version almost has a Basic Latin character set. More characters would require more work, so any further development will require a purchase or donation. Happy to do it if anyone is interested in a more complete font, but not for free.
