I enjoy and am inspired by many blackletter designs, but find that their uppercase characters are generally too complex to be very usable. I also found that very few, if any were designed with perfect 45 degree angles. I set out to design a textura blackletter with unique features and a usable uppercase. What resulted is an interesting, yet usable, geometric design with unusual features that make it stand out from existing texturas.
Lunarmod is an attempt at creating a full font from a single basic shape, a box with oval ends.
It ended up being very modular and looks slightly alien or spacey, hence the name Lunarmod.
Basis is a bitmap font family which is happy being used at both small and large sizes.
Designed as a 9 point bitmap face for the web, it offers different styles than most normal bitmaps.
This is a friendly display typeface with large ink inlets that make it look like the counters have been eaten away from the inside out by hydrochloric acid. It’s legible at small sizes, but at large sizes the nice details make themselves apparent.
This face was drawn on paper with a calligraphy pen and way too much ink.
It’s perfect for that spooky globular look.
