This is my first typeface, it is based around the theme of "fluid". I was initially inspired by foreign alphabets/symbols/logograms. In particular, Arabic characters in a Chinese calligraphic style. While this start point could have lead to more experimental outcomes, I have chosen to keep the look simple so that it would be more versatile.

This was modelled after the type of an old German typewriter, with some liberties taken to provide for modern programming languages.
12-point size is pixel resolution (the only one this font is designed for). Also works well anti-aliased at 9-points.

My personal handwriting when i use Felt tip calligraphy pens (the cheap ones) as my daily writing pen, These are the most common letters I write with, there are many other variants, but the forms i chose worked best on Fontstruct. There are Numbers (and maybe other language writing systems like Cyrillic, Katakana, Hiragana.

My first Font. Please tell me if it's any good since I haven't done any serious Field-testing yet. There might be some problems with certain letters.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 "*".

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

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
