I decided to go a little bit weird, I’ve always been a fan of spray and graffiti fonts. Although I find it extremely difficult for me to actually spray anything let alone on an 8×11 paper when there’s 50mph gusts out side and not enough room inside to lay out 26+ letters of the alphabet each on it’s own paper. So I decided to use some of my own resources… some spray paint brushes I’ve made 2-3 years ago and turned it into a font. The only downside to the font is that I couldn’t do what I wanted (for the most part) which was to make a nicely complete spray paint style font with accents, numbers etc. So the font remains incomplete since it took so long to go from Application to Application, many freezes, many crashes and much frustration.
Overall I am satisfied with the result, a wonderful and unique alphabet that looks very identical to the real thing. The bottom and lowercase differences are mainly alignment, a bit of rotation and mirrored effects (like the E flipped vertically or something). The punctuation is extremely minimal but did some of my most used ones, better then nothing I suppose?
The font was named after myself, I called it St. (as in Saint) because when I first saw the font completed it reminded me of an old ship lettering I’ve seen, I googled it though and found that I was completely wrong and that ship lettering is most likely done with vinyl rather then spray paint. So now I am a pointless saint for my own font and I hope to those who download it that they enjoy it to it’s fullest.
Oddly enough the filesize is exactly 1mb for the font, Kudos to myself for such a lovely achievement.
