About Balgruf Font
Balgruf is a decorative typeface, inspired by Skyrim game. Balgruf consists of 1 weight and corresponding italic. Balgruf is suitable for computer games.
As a typographer playing Skyrim by Bethesda I was annoyed by the font used in the books. The upper case ‘F’ seemed to have been cobbled together from other bits of the font and didn’t fit with the aesthetic of the rest of the letters in the font, it also had a right side bearing which was much too large.
As if it had been hastily made by a graphic designer with no experience in typography who was on a strict deadline.
Once you ‘see’ this mistake you cannot unsee it and it was annoying.
So the question arose, how would I have done it?
This font is the answer to that question.
