Scaenarium Unus Font by MartinSilvertant Scaenarium Unus Font by MartinSilvertant
Scaenarium Unus Font

Here I offer you an unbalanced and imperfect blackletter font that should give the impression of handwritten text. Particularly useful for the Black Metal artists I can imagine.
___________________________________________

This font is a giftware font. This means that you are allowed to use this font for any media and even for commercial use.


Note though that this font contains only basic glyphs. It features no extensive language support or OpenType functions. This was my first released font so I improved tremendously since the release of Scaenarium Unus.

Is this just a distorted Cloister Black?

No. It's a hand-calligraphy font, purposefully made to look messy. There are no digital distortions other than the vector tracing process itself. I believe I used Diploma as reference.

Wow, I can't believe this wasn't already in my favorites, I am a closet blackletter freak and I have admired this one several times. I am glad to place it where it rightly belongs. It's a unique style and would suit Black Metal for sure! Nice work.

Thanks. Looking at it again, it actually has a really nice texture/effect due to the wavy design. It might be worth exploring that principle in a more constructed typeface.

OMG... just... wow...

And certainly worthy of the DD it brought you!

"Particularly useful for the Black Metal artists I can imagine."

Absolutely! When I saw this thumbnail, that's the first thing that came to mind.

This must have taken FOREVER to make.

Funny you would think this took forever. It took only a few hours actually. Compare that to the 160+ hours I would have to invest to finish a full professional typeface.

What I did here was print Diploma and trace it with a calligraphy pen. A friend then digitized it for me as I knew nothing about type design or font programming at the time. I actually have a few other sheets with blackletter fonts which I never digitized and I actually wouldn't even know where those are. In any case, this font is incredibly basic. For basic texts it has everything you need but while this font has around 80 glyphs, my professional fonts have more than 400 glyphs. I was never that proud of receiving a DD for this because I don't think it deserves it. I suppose it's pretty nice to use but sufficed to say if I were to make the same typeface today, you would definitely see a tremendous difference in quality.

Oh wow. That does sound quite simple. And 400 glyphs? That's amazing! But it won, not for the amount of work, but because it looks awesome! :P

At least 400. I don't know how many exactly. It depends on the amount of features, ligatures and extra symbols like mathematical symbols and fractions. I believe Times New Roman and Arial count around 750 glyphs per font. Mind you, a font is a single weight/style. Most of my professional typefaces will consist of 12 fonts (Extra Light, Light, Regular, Semibold, Bold, Black + Italics for each weight). It's a lot of work but with a good typeface a lot of money can be made by selling licenses. It's about time I start selling something.
