This font is designed to look alike Soviet typewriter font. A similar font was used by early-90's Russian-developed word processor, 'Lexicon' by Eugene Veselov.
This was a simple idea started from S and T. Most of the glyphs have two verticle strokes that are 4-bricke-wide and a 1-brick-wide area in the middle of the character. except I, L, S and T (actually a lot more). They are a bit different. Especially S, T and L. The whole characters are only 8 bricks wide. As I mentioned above, It's because the whole font started from these characters.
Straka the name came from last name of a person. The S and T reminds me of this person's last name. I like this last name although I don't even know him.
About the Latin extension, I have made only the glyphs that require no new design, just diacritics and already made letters. So I can pretend like hard-working on fonts but copy paste in reality. :P
Also, I made Arabic glyphs. Only isolated forms. Which I suppose won't be a comfortable experience to Arabic users. It's like every letter has crazy swashes but every letters are lightyears away from each other.(or is it?)
Credit me bcuz it took days and I gave it all to you for free. Unthankful hairless ape. :p
has it gone 2 far? hope it didn't hurt you.
I saw a old poster on the internet and this is a remake of the font it used.
Where are the caps? Who cares? A bold, minimal-grid font so named because it looks sort of jellybeany. Kind of. I'm still not sure I like how dark the 'k' seems, but any fix looks worse. If there's demand, I'll add an accented set, perhaps.
«Update 2017-03-29» – I've reworked the aforementioned K. I've changed the lowercase to be a thinner version, along with much of the punctuation. I've even filled out the Latin-1 Supplement, though I loosen up considerably on the basic design elements to get things to work within the established grid.
A FUTURISTIC LETTER “A”!!
MY FUNNY LETTER “K”!!
AN OVER-EXTENDED EM DASH!!
WEIRD UPSIDE-DOWN CYRILLIC LETTERS THAT NOBODY’S HEARD OF!!
IT’S ALL HERE IN MY NEW FONT — ALDRON.
I THOUGHT THAT THIS FONT NEEDED MORE ATTENTION THAN THE ONE THAT I CLONED IT FROM, WHICH WAS MADE IN A COUPLE OF HOURS. AS WELL AS ADDING THE LATIN AND GREEK ALPHABETS, I MADE A FEW ADDITIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS TO THE CYRILLIC LETTERS AS WELL AS SPACING. AND UNLIKE ITS PREDECESSOR, THIS ONE IS KERNED.
IT WAS QUITE A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE, ACTUALLY, ADAPTING A CYRILLIC FONT FOR LATIN INSTEAD OF VICE VERSA.

Inspired by the Logo of The band Scorpions first created back in 1975.
All other letters were built based on the letters in the original logo by me.
I found the original font of the logo, called "Lady Starlight" (you can check it out here:https://www.dafont.com/lady-starlight.font?text=SCORPIONS) quite boring and thus made this like a recreation. Hope you find it much more interesting.
