Recap of the lettering for "Bols Jaarverslag 1971" originally designed by "Jurriaan Schrofer".
A letter decorated with a tilting dot pattern.
It's inspired by lettering seen on a brochure for Dutch theatre group "Sater" which was designed by "Jurriaan Schrofer".
I couldn't get it much more accurate that this, neither do I think it was wise desicion to make the main design isometric. Since now I'm tied to this projection. I might do a straight aligned version in the future.
Anyway, I think it is still a cool looking typeThis is a clone
Recap from one of the alphabets originally designed by Dutch graphical designer "Jurriaan Schrofer".
This font is a recreation of Richard Wisan's "ELITEQ.LQN" font file (c) 1990 for use with the program LQMATRIX. From Mr. Wisan's comment in the LQMATRIX documentation file: "ELITEQ.LQN: resembles Epson's resident Roman font, but slightly reduced to suit elite spacing."
LQMATRIX was a font design program for use with Epson LQ [Letter Quality] 24-pin dot matrix printers and compatibles. Created by noted linguist, anthropologist, and photographer J. David Sapir, the program had its beginnings in 1985 and was published by Jimmy Paris Software; the last known version that I have been able to find is version 4.44 (1991). Mr. Sapir included font set submissions from LQMATRIX users in some of the later updates; my version includes Mr. Wisan's file. A screenshot of the program is included in the comments section below.
While the graphics mode of dot matrix printers could print rather complex pictures, it remained extremely slow for large amounts of specialized text. By uploading an LQMATRIX font file into the printer's RAM, the temporary font could be used interchangeablely with the printer's resident ROM fonts. The result was a much faster print speed with little sacrifice in quality -- plus, one could design their own special glyphs or characters to suit their needs!
This was accomplish by a sophisticated design program included with LQMATRIX, whereby users could create and save characters or symbols on a 24 vertical by 15 horizontal grid for the ASCII locations 032–126 (although 001-127 were permitted). One could even place dots in the 14 half-positions along the horizontal.
I have cleaned-up some of the curvatures and harmonized a number of glyphs (along with outright modification of a few, like W and w), yet they still adhere to the same 24 x 15 grid. The original designs can be found beginning in the "More Latin" section. Because the characters for "left single quotation mark" and "right single quotation mark" were not present in DOS, I have "created" them here for sake of completion.
Alternate version of connect the bots, reminiscent of dot matrix printers back in the day...
---connect the bots---
Inspired by electronic circuitry, combined with a retro flavour in the structure of the letterforms, this display font is well suited to any computer / electronics or technology related application.
The word ‘systematic’ was taken as a starting point for development, and led me to draw upon a personal interest in the inner workings of electronics. The ordered chaos of all the connections running hither and thither is extraordinarily beautiful.This is a clone of connect the bots
This is a rendition of one of A. V. Hershey's dot fonts from his 1967 paper "Calligraphy for Computers", the "Mathematical" (serif) font. This version is really a hybrid of the original "Mathematical" and "Cartography" fonts, having some symbols such as the circle drawing and map symbols that the "Mathematical" font originally lacked.This is a clone of Hershey Dot Cartographic
This typeface was concevied two years ago and later shelved. Thought that it was still worth finishing so here it is. It's another take on the square dot matrix style that I did with the MinSha typeface back in 2010.
