This is my first typeface made in Fontstruct and it is a part of my degree. The theme of the project is “Rebirth”. With this Fontstruction I am trying to revamp some of the typefaces being used for headlines and drop caps in books or newspaper. I am aiming for a more boxy and modern look, by some separations in the structure of the letters. My main inspiration came from sci-fi books and encyclopedias.
Unbroke 2 is an update on my earlier Unbroke. It is a san-serif headline display typeface inspired by the prensent and the absent; the broken and whole. It is minimalist heavily derivative of stencil typography.This is a clone
Humanist Gothic style Grotesque.
This was so much friggin work, and still I have only the basics of Larin characters. The amount of work I put into getting the stoke modulations and smooth edges right was unreal. I couldn't be more happy with it so far. I will add more characters to it soon.
What do you guys think so far? Suggestions or tips are more than appreciated.
Extrapolation of the lettering found on a 1976 calender by Wim Crouwel.
I know this has already been done before, here is one that was done by Wilson Thomas. Who did a far more extensivey version that also includes extended Latin. Check his version out here: https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/795855/kalendar_1976
Apart from a couple of glyphs that were done notably different and some other tiny differences in detais the two are pretty similar, but most certainly not copied.
Extrapolation of the lettering found on a Dutch renovation brochure. I have no clue if it is a existing font or not. I only used the letters from the brochure as guide and did zero research on it's origin.
At first I started to struct the lettering seen on the book cover of:
"Tot elkaar veroordeeld 'De Nederlands-Duitse economische betrekking' (tussen 1945-1957)"by Martijn Lak.
But doing a little more research it turned out to be the 1988 geometric typeface "Senator" originally designed by Zuzana Licko.
I took the liberty of making sort of a replica.
I made a couple of small changes here and there trying to improve its overall look.
My attempt at a headliner font. This is made to look very regular, even "generic", but also very clearly readable - the sort of font you might expect to see in advertising agencies, publishing houses, hospitals, and government buildings.
Use with kerning turned ON!
"Big Friendly Giant"
Inspired by the bold black letter style of old aswell as midevil styles. The font was constructed with harsh edges and sharp corners in mind. A font worthy of a noble knight.
I created this typeface around the theme of gregarious, focusing on gregarious plants. I started with drawing the letterforms in ink using a rolled up leaf. The results were twig-like marks which reminded me of the illustrations from 'A Monster Calls' so I developed the letters thinking how they could work alongside this or another story. The name 'This Wild Earth' is taken from the book and I think reflects the scratchy and bold feel of the typeface.
Mixed-case, low-legibility headline font inspired by '80s-era arcade games and the hard-to-read graffiti bubble letter alphabets of the same time period. Free to use, with attribution, even commercially.
Extremely blocky typeface, meant for large text of 36 point and up. Feel free to improve upon it!
Check out the details for a more accurate preview. Bold and blocky fonts are my fav. However, a lot of the blocky fonts I find are typically limited and offer a single style. Therefore, I made two options for this font: the lowercase is a solid version of the slotted uppercase with slight variation on key letters.
