Letters within letters! Type an uppercase letter followed by a lowercase letter to nest them. Type a period for an inner square, and > for an outer square.
This was an experiment from several years ago that I found half-finished while looking for potential CounterComp entries. I added missing letters and quite dramatically improved the existing ones. It's not perfect, and some combinations don't work so well (I'm particularly unhappy with capital I), but I think it turned out pretty well nonetheless.
Beware: for some reason, the downloaded font is huge-about 6 times the height of most other fonts-which makes it look horrible in e.g. MS Word, due to the pixel optimization at "small" sizes. I'm not sure what causes this, and consequentially, I don't know how to fix it.
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. :^)
An attempt to produce a low-resolution pixel font which generates mazes from arbitrary strings of text. It requires the use of negative line spacing (available only to certain software) to look right without hand-editing.
The mazes it produces aren't the best, but they are definitely interesting! I might just call this a cipher and be done with it...
Zapotec-style mosaic/segmented display. :D
(Use _ for the full design.)
Experimental effects font. To me it looks like pins, hot air balloons, weird trees, icecreams, map points, fancy upholstery, and more!
Stained-glass blackletter Frankenfont thing. :D
UC cloned to LC to make this easier to use...This is a clone of Chimera Spine
A design that looks like a top-down view of ziggurats!
I composited the diacritics so they'd fit into place, but this means that most anything non-English needs to be pretty large to be unambiguously read...
The first of a kind - an experimental font made with the new pizza slice brick. :D
Somehow it makes me think of jukeboxes, particularly letters like "A" and "O" which have the same sort of "mosaic lighting" look which many jukeboxes have.
No filters, just nudging!
I wondered what a plain version of Candylander would look like, so I made this. :D
I think a fully half-arc version could look even more stylish than this! Hope to find time to create one soon. (EDIT: Done, see Migrator)This is a clone of Candylander
Experimental brush/pen thing. Has a slightly spooky look. Because of their tapering curves, many glyphs can render with a "split" or "stencil" look about them. This is due to software-imposed limitations on vector rendering. Designs which share this property can be considered Pseudostencils.
This design is not informed or inspired by any existing typographical traditions. I set out to make the "claw" bricks (as I call them) into a font and this is the result.
A font made to have a "carved stone" look the likes of which might be found in some ancient underground temple.
Inspired by the many hours I've spent playing a certain platforming roguelike... >.>
Another 2x2 doodle. :^)
