Baybayin Modern Sinta Font by Nordenx Baybayin Modern Sinta 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

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:…

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.

You have some beautiful fonts here, this 1 being my favourite. Could you tell me if there is a version of the baybayin which is associated with visaya/cebuano. Thank you

Thank you.

Yes, there is a font by Paul Morrow based on a typeface that appeared in 1787 in an Italian work by Lorenzo Hervás y Pandura. Paul Morrow named the font Bisaya Hervas, you can download it here: [link]

Thank you. :)

Sadly, I don't think any of my Modern Baybayin fonts are in the Omniglot site.
