New greyfolk language typeface, syllable blocks, numerals

After working on other pieces of the greyfolk language for so long, I am genuinely proud to present the new typeface: klepalka (it’s in a .zip file since .ttf files aren’t normally allowed by WordPress). The name is just a transliteration of the work ‘greyfolk’ into the greyfolk language. Instead of just containing a few syllable blocks to use as… Read More »New greyfolk language typeface, syllable blocks, numerals

Creating the new 7HR alphabet

It’s like a [su_tooltip style=”dark” position=”north” content=”This is a link to ‘Seven-segment display’ on Wikipedia“]seven-segment display[/su_tooltip]. But horizontal, so it’s on its side.

So, I’ve already updated the font for Greyfolk

It’s actually already reflected in my previous post. After I published that post, I realized that I was seeing some inconsistencies across my phone, my computer, and my girlfriend’s laptop. The font looked much sharper on my phone and on my girlfriend’s laptop while appearing fuzzy on my monitor. “How can that be?” I wondered. My monitor has a 4k… Read More »So, I’ve already updated the font for Greyfolk
