Interests
I'm Frederick Victor Paredes Añana ( fvpa81@yahoo.com or fareddy@gmail.com ), a Filipino Fine Arts graduate of Far Eastern University, Manila Philippines.

I've been designing my own Modified Baybayin Fonts since 2008.

All of my Modified Baybayin fonts are featured in my e-book (PDF) called "Fred's Modified Baybayin Styles". To read my e-book, click www.scribd.com/doc/61201375/Fr…

Baybayin is an ancient writing system used by the early Filipinos during the pre-Hispanic occupation. For more info., 3.bp.blogspot.com/_y2eZ6YCZhTs…, www.eaglescorner.com/baybayin/… or www.mts.net/~pmorrow/bayeng1.h…

Baybayin script has many variants or styles. For details, click www.mts.net/~pmorrow/paterno.h… or www.mts.net/~pmorrow/baychart.…;

Nowadays, the Baybayin script is almost extinct.
Most modern Filipinos no longer use the Baybayin script & are now using the Roman/Latin Alphabet.

Fortunately, other variants of the Baybayin script are still being used by the Filipino ethnic minorities today. They are the Mangyans (Buhid & Hanuno'o) of Mindoro and Tagbanwa tribe of Palawan.
Fot details, click www.bibingka.com/dahon/living/…

To learn the Buhid script, click www.omniglot.com/writing/buhid…

To learn the Hanuno'o script, click www.omniglot.com/writing/hanun…

To learn the Tagbanwa script, click www.omniglot.com/writing/tagba…

Three of my Modified Baybayin fonts were featured in Omniglot.com.
They are the Maharlikang Tagalog, Alfa-Larawan and Alfa-Kinetix Baybayins.

For Maharlikang Tagalog, click www.omniglot.com/writing/mahar…

For Alfa-Larawan, click www.omniglot.com/writing/alfal…

For Alfa-Kinetix, click www.omniglot.com/writing/alfak…

The whole point of modification is to improve our script by making it more complete. If the Spaniards were able to modify the Baybayin script, then so should we Filipinos since its our writing system.

The Chinese did the same thing with their characters.
According to Omniglot.com, the Chinese characters have changed overtime from 1200 BC to the year 1949.
For details, click www.omniglot.com/writing/chine…

My goal is to modify only the extinct Baybayin variants and not those that are still surviving. The Mangyans (Buhid & Hanunuo)of Mindoro and the Tagbanwas of Palawan are still using their ancestral script. So let's not meddle with their writing system. I'm not sure if they''ll allow someone else to modify their script.

So which of my fonts is your favorite?

magaling, you might also be interested in abugida ([link]) or writing by syllables based on consonants, sounds like our abakada, right?
it is so because we have similar development script system with other cultures around the world

anyhow, sorry for the plug, i also made a font though far simpler than yours at [link]

cheers!

Your Lipi font ([link]) looks like Roman letters inspired by the shapes of Baybayin letters.

Another Filipino named Maypakialam designed his own Baybayin inspired Roman font. He called it Alfa-Pinoy font: [link]
