Baybayin Modern Block Font

The Script

Baybayin script is an ancient form of writing by native islanders and tribes in the South East Asian archipelago we now know as the Philippines.

The Font

I created true type fonts (TTF) I called "Baybayin Modern" to use in modern art. The fonts are stylized modern composite of many examples from the past but the style is based primarily on my calligraphy work and handwriting. These fonts should not be considered as historically accurate examples of the Baybayin. The font is calligraphic & artistic representations and the characters’ shapes, sizes and weights have been made uniform in order to present a neat and elegant printed appearance.

More info: nordenx.blogspot.com/

The zip file contains the TTF file and documentation on how to use it. If used in your artwork, please include a credit and/or link back to either the blog (link above) or my DA page.

Philippines needs to re-adopt the Baybayin and it should be used for all the native languages
