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. 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.

If used in your artwork, please include a credit and/or link back to either the blog ( nordenx.blogspot.com/ ) or my DA page.

The Style (Club)

"Club" is pronounced "Cloob" in the Spanish fashion.

I visited the Philippines exactly around this time last year (July to August of 2010). While in Manila, my business partners and I held our weekly business meetings at Club Filipino, an exclusive members-only social club and recreational facility. Established in 1898 as an elite Filipino country gentlemen's organization, the club has developed a reputation for being a meeting ground for Filipino political progressives throughout its history.

I noticed Club Filipino's logo on a wrought iron gate and on their restaurant's napkins. I started scribbling a new font design based on the two baybayin characters ka & pi emblazoned in front of their logo.
