Based on the 1981 Lady Bug game typeface. Lady Bug is an insect-themed maze chase video game produced by Universal Entertainment and released in arcades in 1981. Its gameplay is similar to Pac-Man, with the primary addition to the formula being gates that change the layout of the maze when used.
My first attempt at creating a modular typeface as part of my studies in Graphic Design at City of Glasgow College.
This is my first attempt to design a super compact font to be realized with my modular rubberstamp system.
In January 2021 I was contacted by Pranksy of NFTBoxes.io that asked me to design an artwork for a new kind of collectible (we call them "NFTs" is the trend of 2021, I'm in this since 2018). The idea was to produce a piece in the theme of "innovators" and the main curator and artist of the subscription was Mr. Coldie!
I know Coldie since my inception in Superrare, he's one of the most incredible artists and creators of this space that we call "Cryptoart". He's doing a lot of strange things, but I noticed we both started doing our mad things using photocopier machines.
So I had this idea to realize a schematic of the working process of the photocopier. You can see the result HERE, there are 500 digital copies of the artwork available, you can buy one with some Ether, the cryptocurrency, if you want.
This font is the digital test, still be completed, that I've used for the artwork.
First designed for the Rare AF2 event, Rare Art Festival, about most innovative projects in the realm of cryptoart, held in New York:
18th May 2019 / Bushwick Generator
215 Moore Street / Brooklyn, NY 11206
Then expanded in october 2020 with lowercase set of glyphs for Adoption:
Adoption is an artists-run cryptoart gallery. Spreading nft and blockchain adoption.
This is the halfone version.
This was a fun one to experiment with. A lot of fonts I've done here have been done with strict design rules. It's fun to break them once in a while.
This one feels like it's been a long time coming. Surprised it only took me two and a half months to get all done, and half of that was it being on the backburner. A good, solid font with a futuristic slant to it. All Latin languages present and correct, as ever.
Sort of revival of the lettering that Jurriaan Schrofer designed back in 1957 for Dutch timber trader called "houthandel Rote".
The original sketch by Schrofer featured the text "standaard profielen" in all lowercase letters (I will post a image bellow)
Now, as far as I know this was all the characters Jurriaan designed for this project. The designs parameters in Jurriaans sketch doesn't allow a lot of freedom and remains unclear on how a character with crossing strokes like k or x wouldve been done. So its kind of a tricky one to extend easily, therefor I just captured its basic letterforms for now.
A font made to be very economical.
This design uses as few unique shapes as possible. In addition to extensive rotations and flips (see AR, EMW, FL, GJUV, IHKT, NSZ25), glyphs are made so that they can be cut down to make other glyphs in as few cuts as possible (see BEI, used to make ACDFLMNOPRSWYZ1235689). Some other glyphs (see QX.,) then make use of the cut parts.
This means that, were these letters to be physically made, the maker would only need a few forms to start with and could cut the rest in only a few steps.
The name was chosen because of both a running joke between friends and because it was the coolest-looking phrase I tried when I auditioned the font.
By request, "a font that looks like a hybrid of Greek and Latin".
This is designed to be modular. UPPER CASE contains the standard glyphs. Alternates are on the lowercase as well as the More Latin band.
"Novus Graecorum" means "The New Greek".
Supports Dutch, English, and Greek!
Modern modular geometric minuscule script style sans-serif typeface.
Typeface design based on a typographic poster that is celebrating Wim Crouwel, and was designed by Matthew Lew.
A typeface design that was inspired by a poster designed by chuck Sperry for Kraftwerk, at the Paradiso, Amsterdam back in January 2015.
I don't know if this already is a existing font, but I don't really care.
The letters on the poster simply kept begging me for a digital recap.
A font made with a small number of blocks - 16. Although it could be as little as 6 if I used lots of nudging and modifiers.
A small rounded stencil type inspired by Bauhaus artist "Josef Albers"
This is a optimized re-entry of my very first fontstruct entry. Which was in loving memory of "Jurriaan Schrofer". it was a attempt to re-create a alphabet from late great dutch graphic designer "Jurriaan Schrofer". Unfortunatly the first entry that I published had some imperfections that I have removed in this version.
I updated and improved my already previously published third recap in the series to attempt to re-create some of the works from late great dutch graphic designer "Jurriaan Schrofer".
As extra I added a period plus comma.
I hope you like it.
