This is my second fontstruction for a project during the first term of my study in Graphic Design at UWE.
I have based this typeface on a similar (un-named) font that has been found in a Typefounders Catalogue dated before 1955, I really liked a lot of the ornate qualities and decided to bring this forgotten typeface into the modern day by replicating features of it through this digital medium.

*Still in progress!*
A pixely-medievaly sorta font.
I noticed that there were tons of 8-bit videogame-style fonts, and lots of old english fonts; so I thought, "I'm gonna combine them and see how it ends out!"
Constructive criticism is appreciated; let me know if anything looks wrong or too weird! (I know, the capital X looks really weird, I just couldn't get it to work for some reason.)
(Avádicus is just a fantasy name I made up. It sounds to me like the name of a mighty kingdom in an RPG.)
A kinda similar font is Pixular, by LexKominek.

A techno style typeface with a calligraphic twist (or calligraphic with a tech-twist!!) I've explored the rounded brushstrokes against straight lines and got a nice dynamic result. – with cool lowercase numbering

Clone of "Texture" by wolfkrim with a meager few of my own added symbols. This should be suitable for displaying web addresses clearly, etc. I made this primarily for my own use after discovering an incomplete version of "Texture" some time ago.This is a clone of Texture

This is my first fontstruction, so please be gentle :)
I made this as an exercise based on my own square-tip pen calligraphy, and it turned out to be some kind of "modern" blackletter.
Please send in any comments/sugestions/critics/whatever

This took me many, many hours of trying, learning, erasing and restarting. Especially the design of the caps was hard; sooo many possibilities! However, i'm proud to present you my first real blackletter font :) I would like to add some more glyphs to the "more latin" set, but the size seems to be close to the download limit. It's downloadable yet, but i had to erase some glyphs...
there's an alternate "a" on "@",
and some decorative stuff on "#" and "*".

I made this testing FS out. I think it is a success! And turned out well! It's just Caps right now. But I'll keep working on it!

This is a "gothic" alphabet. It took a few days to complete. I didn't make a @ sign so you can just do this: (a). It is the equivalent to @. For the Copyright sign you can do the same (c). So there you go. Please comment and tell me what you think.

Inspired by the pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and the flying buttresses found in Gothic architecture and the calligraphic Gothic Hand, a young and undaunted designer set forth to minimize counter space and emphasize vertical height with only a few bricks. The result was a modular blackletter font with crossbars, serifs and finials embodying a sense of sideways movement. May the design gods have mercy on her soul.This is a clone

Little experiment of mine, trying to design a script font that really connects all the letters. As you might guess from the quality of the uppercase, I started with lowercase and had quite some trouble finishing the uppercase... And I know there are (obviously) always the connection strokes peaking out at the end any word, but funnily this imperfect look has started to grow on me during the fontstructing.
I also know there are still lots and lots of inconsistencies and letters that badly need a rework, but I thought the constructive criticism of my fellow fonstructors might be more helpful and efficient at improving this... So I'm grateful for any suggestions!:)
Oh, and yes: The kerning is very painful at times, but I can't see how I can improve that under the constraints of the script and the character forms. And obviously the script thing doesn't work with uppercase only text.

A TRUE HAND WRITTEN font.
No two letters are the same, or use any of the same brick configurations.
From my very own hand using an Edding 5.0 Calligraphy pen.
Only the upper case is available for now. Due to a heavy work load this week, and several non-starter comp entries, I've unfortunately been unable to fully complete the lowercase and numerals. :-(
Hope you like it.
All comment and crits appreciated.

This was inspired by Upixel's Mobivus. It began with the n and strangely evolved into a calligraphy-esque style font. Many alternate glyphs are accessible under the Hangul glyphspace, including:
> storey-changed a, g
> tailed f
> full overhang a, t
> alternate connections on e, k, x
> alternate S, Y
> descender-less G, J, Q, Y (two variations)
> barred Z, z, 7
> alternate connection with ink traps a, b, d, g, h, k, m, n, p, q, r, u, w, y, 6, 9
> alternate alternate a, g, second a, m, w
In addition there is a character with negative spacing for ligatures with f (e.g. fi, ff, fl, fb, ft, fk). This is located at the glyph ㄹ.

This is my first FontStruction while currently studying graphic design at Bristol UWE.
Lots of experimentation solely using paints; quick hand movements and flicks to produce a messy, unrefined effect. Working in less than 1 second for each letter (with real paints), used as reference. Inspired by East Asian calligraphy.

I like this font, but not the "T" (T for tree, right?)
I tried to make lots of characters, but I figured I wont get more then one download (myself) so I decided I dont need all of those greek letters. :P

That's "ligatures" backward. It is titled this because all of the capital letters are ligatures.
I made up the design of most of the letters, but some of them are classical calligraphic style. Enjoy my all-lc pixellised blackletter font!
