I loved the original created by zephram and I want to create a few fonts that build on it and be slightly more me. Almost no changes to the Majuscules and numbers.
This is a clone
X marks the spots! It's friendly-looking, despite being built from things usually used as cautionary symbols. This is a property which I also perceive in many of the sprites and setpieces of the "Metal Slug" video game. Hmm... maybe I should Fontstruct some actual Metal Slug fonts!
This works as a pixel font, but only at 2x the original size or more because of the close spacing. Smaller sizes will create distortion unless you modify the spacing in-software.
Segmented display + Pixel art + Embroidery stitch = this.
"Acanthi Requiem" = "Antique Chimera".
Original size: 8pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
One more pixel font.
This type face is based off of the word decorate and the adjective decorative. Within the development of this design I took inspiration from embellishment and a craft style of working which is how the cross stitch came to light. This type is lowercase, it is meant for smaller bodies text. It will work best in a 12 or 14pt body as if the type is too small it will be difficult to see the detail. Though CrossStitchNS is probably not suitable for headers it would be perfect for texts such as invitations. I hope you enjoy this font as much as I enjoyed making it. x
