BEACH RESORT — 1920s Art-Deco style
Beach Resort is a tall geometric display sans inspired by the Art-Deco aesthetics.
It's condensed style makes up for a rather tall and narrow looking letter concept. The design is further characterized by this distinct asymmetric curve geometry. A tiny touch of stress was added on the vertical axis to create this gentle stroke contrast. The stressed weight of the horizontals automatically compensating it's optical correction issue.
— Only minimal kerning for now, more will be added soon
Hope y'all like it,
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
STF_NEUE ISAIAH - 70's Art Deco / Streamline style typeface
Most of the design credits for this font should go toIsaiah Garciasince I took the liberty of revisiting her fontstructionFS Idea
Please check out this member's awesome contributions here:Ivy Meadows (Isaiah Garcia)
The one major difference between the two works is the grid size and construction method, Isaiah's version was made using a faux-Bézier approach (very labour intensive) and requires a fairly large design grid, whereas my version is a small grid design, utilizing the circle arc bricks and composites to achieve smoother contour quality, and was done on just a 4x7 grid using 2:2 filter.
This different approach and limitations in small grid designs have led to a number of small changes for certain glyphs. Also have I change some details slightly to my personal preference. But it remains very much Isaiah's design.
I tried to remain as faithful to the original font as possible, and in addition tried to further expand the character set. Most important differences made in my revision are the additional lowercase chatacter set (spurred strokes), the uppercase alternative forms / lowercase alternative forms (spurless) and extra symbols.

LORD KRUMBLE —A transitional sans that mixed Art-Deco with neo-classical humanist minuscules
Inspired to celebrate the homecoming of him who strikes fear in all badly baked treats, the one which nightmares are made of, that kind of person that makes every cookie crumble and wanna skip school for a day or two. Of course I'm talking about the one and only "Cookielord".
— "What could'nt be better suiting than to have a freshly crasfted and new font that is celebrating his return."
Him recently dropping a new FontStruction somewhat came as a pretty unexpected but nice surprise. It just so happened to be that I was already looking for new ideas that could lead to the next project. In fact, until recently I was actually still struggling with this, and hadn't really been able to provide a catchy and motivating design theme to bring to the table that would once again help me on my way with starting a new FontStruct project. So I took this occasion to see if I was able to find a little inspiration in his Verminfont. Not particularly aimed at doing a derivative work, nor anything closely resembling his cool font. Instead rather trying to draw some inspiration from that peculiar and playful but friendly characteristic, that to me personally distinguishes his Vermin font the most anyway.
And so I appoligize for the fact that this doens't truly relates or do justice stylistically in any way to the aesthetic present in Cookielord's original Vermin font. That being said, this is what became the end product of that.
But, it does have one striking resemblance that pays a homage to him, and that is the included cookie. Sorry I took a bite out of it my friend, hope you can still appreciate it.
— Just to let you know that regardless wether you decide to stay or not, your recent return isn't going to be for nothing!!
No 'Brick Size' filters were used, which of course presented me with a lot of challenges that limited the amount of complexity I was able to put in, something that wouldn't been the case with (2:2) 'Brick Size' filter settings. The other noteworthy aspect to this particular fontstruct is its grid size, which is tiny. Never before have I made a Fontstruction that required kerning values to fluctuate only as little as 0,01. This also made it impossible to implement optical corrections on the vertical axis in the form of overshoots, but luckily this didn't became a very clear issue in the end.
I'm not sure if I can complete the additional Latin accents for all characters due to the limited grid space available surrounding some of glyphs. I might try doing those later.
Let me know what u think of it so far fella's, stay tuned!

STF_VINDALOO (Regular) - Style variation in the 'VINDALOO' font family
This is the lightest version in this font family and is the most suitable style for more of a body text use.
Of all the versions this one proved to be the most challenging one to implement all the stylistic details the heavier versions also feature. And in the end I was unable to transfer each and every one of them into this version. But that seems to be far from any issue at all since this is aimed at smaller point size and best legibility. So I guess some slight extra simplicity wouldn't harm!
Another notable difference in this version is that some glyphs received more changes than just a 1:1 straight weight cut. This was done because either a straight weight cut would've made the character look awkward or due to technical difuculties.
Despite the above I think it came out just great, and absolutely a clearly recognizable family member.
All the versions will receive more language support soon (stay tuned)
I hope you like it so far.

This initially had already been a published work from my early days of Fontstructing and the original had a lot that was less than desirable. For a start, the obvious rookie mistakes, that were due to the lack of typographic education as well as insufficiant knowledge about the overall Fontstruct-Editor Expert-mode features.
- - -
Now several years later, fully acustomed to the physiology of Fontstructing (composite bricks, filters, behaviour) but above all, to be able to visualize ahead and to conceive imaginary conceptual thinking for new ideas or solutions within the FS-Editor limitations. And in return to bounce back from these restrains and make them work in my favour.
So now I feel like I have to give some of my older Fontstructions a serious reassessment, and perhaps do some revisions here and there.
There are numerous hidden gems and potentials within these works, for which back in the day I remained unable to accomplish to their full glory and complete satisfactorily successful end result and design objectives.

To get back at this particular font:
There was some unsolidified hidden beauty in certain forms that had yet to 'truly' be revealing itself. I completely overhauled a clone but basically ended up with more of a new font instead.
And I really like it

ART-FRÉCO - Art-Deco style typeface
My second Fontstruction that honours the work of Fré Cohen.
In loving memory of the great Dutch graphical designer
Frederika Sophia (Fré) Cohen(August 11, 1903 – June 14, 1943).
Unlike the previous font that was solely based on digitizing one specific lettering concept, this one is more of a 'inspired' mixture of the various works by Fré Cohen.
The font features a full uppercase set that has the main focus. Everything else was build to supplement mainly these. It features a mixture of glyphs alternates in both upper and lowercase form to make some decorative typographic variations.
More fine-tuning will be done soon!
With this font I am late to the competition, but I still love Art Deco a lot.This is a clone
Art-deco style font developed from the letter s (which wasn't that easy to make).
Decorative experimental letters drawn around XX pattern.
Very Fun Art-Deco font.
