A pretty simple looking variable sans-serif design.

The font allows you to modify the width of nearly every glyph. The one exception that can not be changed is the exclamation mark. I tried to simplify it the best I could, but it remains a little tricky to use, sorry.

HOW TO USE:

To type any sensible text you should start with the uppercase of a certain letter (this will create the left side of it). Followed by the corresponding extender to widen the glyph (repeat this step for a even wider result), and to complete the full letter you close the string with the lowercase glyph for this specific letter (this will create the right side).

There are a couple of glyphs that work slightly different.

These are I,M,T,W,Y, numerals and some punctuations.
To widen "I and T" the extenders are typed before and after the actual letter combination instead of in between.
M,W and Y are split in three (center stem is isolated) in order to allow one to make changes on both sides. To correctly type one of these you start with the uppercase for this specific letter, followed by the corresponding extender, followed by the corresponding center stem, followed with the extender once more, and as last to complete the full letter close the string with the lowercase glyph for this specific letter.

To extend the colon and semi-colon you complete the string for either period or comma first, followed by ; (semi-colon). This will place a dot above it.
And as last, to make a underscore simply use the string for period but with extra extenders.

The numerals work as listed bellow:
  1:|_
  2z
  #3
  4-|-
  5s
  6s
  7*
  8b
  9$
  0o

The extenders are located in the following locations:

` - _ # = :

The isolated stems are located in the following locations:

It's a pretty standard style variable (width) typeface design. thalamic created a much more awesome but very similar style typeface a while ago, which can be found here: tm Extend
