Baybayin Modern Mono 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 composites from publications & handwriting examples from the past. This font is a modern representation and should not be considered a historical example of the Baybayin, however it is based on the traditional characters’ shapes and form. The glyph’s strokes, sizes and weights have been made uniform in order to present a neat and elegant printed appearance. The font is calligraphic & artistic representations of my handwriting.

You can now download it here in DA: Look for the DOWNLOAD button on the sidebar.

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.

This font has become so popular that people tend to forget who credit the designer and neglect my copyright restrictions about commercial use. This -… - is what's going on right now.
