Baybayin Modern Brush Font by Nordenx Baybayin Modern Brush 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 (Brush) 

This is actually done back in 2007 when I had access to a Bamboo tablet. I was practicing brush strokes and came up with these fonts.

The Sample

The script rendered in baybayin brush font reads: 

"Gaano man ang tibay ng piling abaka, ay wala ring lakas kapag nagiisa. Tingnan mo naman ang walis tingting, matibay sapagka't magkabigkis" 

"No matter how strong the best hemp may be, a single strand isn’t strong enough. Look at the broom made of small sticks, it is sturdy because it is tightly bound."  

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 love this font, but it stopped working after many years of working pretty well. Yes, this is the updated version.
