I was making some new bricks to add to Brick Basket when the idea of a segmented display made from composites occurred to me. The result is this experimental 25-segment display.
This achieves some interesting "double line"/"folded line" effects. It also gets some pecuilar distortions at smaller sizes.
Tribal doodle thing. Still in its experimental phase. It's named for Abraxas, a Tromp from the PC game "Commander Blood". (As it turns out, the same name has many historical and mythological uses.)
A font made to the height of the visible field when the FontStructor is zoomed all the way out on my screen. I've always wanted to make something that vaguely pushed one of FS' limits - in this case, the height of the field which I can observe without scrolling.
Well, I could've made this even taller, but I wanted it to be somewhat useable at least. :D
This was originally a pixel design, but then I changed my mind and converted it to high-res. That gave it a more architectural look.
A slightly futuristic and stencilesque design using halfwidth bricks.
The idea here was to make every glyph simple and minimal, not only in terms of overall geometry but individual line connections as well. Some glyphs are still more complex/less minimal than others, but I think it's a good amount of variety.
Experimental sliced sans serif. My goal here was to make a design which would result in an extremely compact and durable physical stencil. Almost all of the sharp points and acute angles are within the negative space, so it should be easy and very safe to make, handle and work with this stencil.
1.3 - added More Latin and Google Fonts Basic bands.
1.2 - added uppercase, changed name to "Aegris Stencil".
1.1 - edited for more readability at small size. Glyphs with enclosed loops were altered so that the "movement" of the segments always runs clockwise.
1.0 - released.
I started doodling and ended up with this - a semimodular design that looks like a fusion of Coptic, Elder Futhark, Hebrew, and Latin. Arabic numerals included, of course!
A spirally design which tries its best to be lineal. Check out the "M" to see the "ammonyte". :D
Well, for some time I've wanted to make a font entirely with spirals. This is not that font, but it's as close as I've gotten to actually carrying out the idea. This is also small enough to use for body text, which is likely more than will be able to be said about an actual 100% spiral font.
Original size: 15.75pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
An experimental font "antipode". The opposition lies in the fact that in one font there are rounded strokes and pixels. Some letters and characters are completely rounded, some are pixelated, and some have both rounded and pixel elements
52 characters for the basic Latin set, 10 numerals, 36 punctuation characters, 66 characters for the Russian language set
Please let me know what do you think :)
Experimental 49-segment display.
In making and studying other segmented displays, I noticed they tended to have strong-looking right angled lines but weak-looking diagonals. This is my attempt to make a design where both styles of lines look more appealing and join together more solidly.
Experimental 25-segment display with some interesting geometry. :D
Acts like a strobe light.

This font has everything Zeph-y. Decolike shapes, half-arcs, procedural asymmetry, slight gaudiness, and an ampersand that looks like a priest with a cross walking on the ocean waves.

I decided to make a design which incorporated the thinnest/lightest weight lines possible in FontStruct. This is the result; I'll add more if people like it.
These 1/32 lines cannot be accurately nudged, so a unique line has to be built for each vertical position where I want a line. These lines also cannot be centered on a place where two curves meet (such as the middle of B or R). This introduces some unintentional asymmetry to the design, but I like it, so I'll keep it.
There is also the problem that forming a diagonal line of the same line weight is nearly impossible. While angled 1/32 lines can be formed, their angles are all close to 0. No method exists for making a line which slants at 45 degrees while also being 1/32 weight. So, I had to make some thicker lines in certain areas. I don't think they detract from the design, but if you scrutinize this enough, you'll notice them.
I came up with an original high-res design, then brickswapped to turn everything into square bricks. The result sort of reminds me of Proxima Punch Pixel Squared, but less art deco and more computer-esque. It has a really old and naive look to it which could make it good for retro-terminal use.
"Buttons Foe" = "Obtuse Font". Not only is it an obtuse font in look and construction, it's reminescent of an era when computers were thought of as adversarial, magic voodoo boxes. So both the name and the anagram are equally applicable. :^)
