Baybayin Modern Kana Font by Nordenx Baybayin Modern Kana Font by Nordenx
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

Download it here in DA:…

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.

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 ( or my DA page.

The Style (Kana) 

Inspired by Japanese Hiragana and Katakana.

The Sample

The script sample reads: 

"Kung maniniwala ka sa lahat ng binabasa mo, mabuti pang huwag ka nang magbasa." 

"If you believe everything you read, better not read."  (a Japanese proverb)

For more info on the new features included in this font set, please read the rich text format (.rtf) file that is included in the zip.

I think I changed it but DA must've used the one that was in cache from a previous trial upload. Oh well... Thanks again mate! Gonna switch it now.
