STEAMLINER — 1920s Art-Deco style
[ INTRODUCTION ]
Steamliner is a simple looking linear All-Caps display font with elegant geometric letters. It comes from a mix of Art-Deco retro style with a distinct irregular curved asymmetry, Essentially blending Art-Deco with Art Nouveau into a more simplified clean & solid lettering style.
The character set mixes various glyph alternative forms for the capital letters together to provoke a slight feel of randomness.
— The font Em-square is only 1.5 × 1.5 bricks
INNERCITY — Geometric future retro display grotesque
Geometric unicase display sans with a stylistic filled counter-like (Uc) set and monolinear 'bare-boned' geometric grotesque (Lc) set.
— Full alphanumeric dual-variant font !!
Elmoyenique's "zenzura" (a very stylish work in it's own right, make sure to check that one as well) anyway,
His 'zenzura' font kind of struck me with a healthy fresh dose of motivation. In the past I've explored somewhat similar style designs, but none of those ever really got consolidated into the extensive and complete work Elmo delivered with his stunning zenzura.
So I decided to dig up one of my older such projects and see if this new motivational boost could turn 'half'-a-font into a complete piece.
Long story short, this update is the result of that venture.
Where previously this project came in just one style (filled counters), with no additional glyph alternates. Basically a complete absense of the lowercase-string all together, and only very limited complementary set of symbols and punctuation marks were present. Neither did the previous version had a great deal of refinement in terms of metrics / kerning and overall horizontal distribution of type-set material. So, it was nothing more than a plain doodle of the idea I had back then, that had to be preserved for a later stage.
But being drawn into more recent projects at the time I eventually ren dry on motivation to fully finalize this I ended up publishing it in its rough state.
ABOUT THE UPDATE:
The'bare-boned' lowercase is a somewhat futuristic geometric looking form, whereas the filled uppercase set has a strong retro vibe.
Combined in 'mixed-case' it can make a cool optional decorative style capitalization for your text. Used in isolation the two styles (Uc, Lc) both could be used as two seporate fonts, allowing stylistic text hierarchy.
In addition to the stylish retro-like, and partially filled forms I included a glyph-alternative set that strips the letterforms down to their monolinear core-geometric essence.
The design of this set is characterized by the spacious, sharp and clear appearance, that looks slightly futuristic but fashionable still.
With this new addition being the more legible and clean form of the two style sets, I placed this variation into the lowercase-string, making this the default-style for the font.
For the numerals, symbols and punctuations, I tried to remain committed to the stylish filled nature of the uppercase set.
A full alternative monolinear and 'bare-boned' numeral counterpart is located in the 'Full Width' Unicode block. Two extra weight variations for the brackets are also included for a more precise personal preference..
— And so it finally could respectably considered being a full font after all.
Thats all folks.. Enjoy !

KROEPOEK -Letterforms influenced by the orient.
Simple geometry based design that tries to imitate Asian style letterforms.
The font comes as a "all-caps"(majuscules) with the lowercase string used to include a set of glyph alternatives for the uppercase set, but cutting the descending parts of the glyphs.
As a little bonus, a set of underlined lowecase vowel alternatives (a, e, i, o, u and y) was also included to allow a small level of personal depth. These can be found in the Unicode block for: 'Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms'
Besides the letters there is also a set of essential punctuation and symbols present to make the font proper functional.
I hope you like it,
REWINDER - A bold and decorative "I don't have a clue" style font.
Alternative lowercase versions for (a, c, e, g, j, m, n, o, q, s, u, v, w, y, z)
Usually I design fonts from a general concept I have in mind and start with the Latin alphabet first since I am most familiar with these characters. Then when I have completed these I start adding extra language support. letting everything evolve from there on out into the other languages such as Cyrillic or Greek. Doing it in this fashion I find myself having the best change of doing a decent job designing characters I am not familiar with the right way and in line with the design parameters.
This time I starten designing the Cyrillic alphabet first, trying not to think about the Latin set design at all. I did this in an attempt to have a neutral mindset that wasn't influenced in doing it a certain way.
And I must admit, this was the best and most comfi time I ever did a Cyrillic set. I experienced a sense of having a lot more freedom for creative output.
The result became this cool looking "hell knows" what kind of style letterforms. I have no clue if I actually did a decent and accurate job at the Cyrillic set, and I'm not sure where to go from here on out either.
I hope you like it so far
STF_THUNDERDOME - A tall thin stroked Art Deco typeface.
I tried to create pretty simple, elegant but somewhat wonky geometric letterforms.
Inspired by the later 70's Art Deco Streamline period.
This remains a WIP, many of the glyphs in the Extended-Latin set aren't reflecting their Basic-Latin counter-parts. The character set remains far from complete for now, and many changes need to be made still.
Kerning done only for a few pairs and overall balance therefor is still quite poor I guess.
Some 'more' detailed but derailed towards the end 'in-depth' recap of this font could be found bellow in the comment section.
Stay tuned for more,
Peace!This is a clone
