What would happen if we combined a segmented display with a CACTUS? This. This is what would happen.

So innovative design!

Use caution when handling this font, some edges are really sharp...

Also, can you switch the superscript 2 and 3 around... In the sample, Figure A looks like a 3, figure B looks like a 2...

Thanks, guys!

Just "wow". Some very unusual glyph shapes due to unusual design units, an attractive novelty look. Many glyphs are useful as stand-alone decorative units. Well done, and congratulations on the TP

@Aeolien: Thank you! This is the first design where I made a mosaic/segmented display and then was able to break the mold created by such a design. I had to break the design rules a bit to do it, but I certainly don't regret the result!

Was this under consideration for TP? If so, I don't see it... >.>

Ouppss!!! Sorryy! I made a mistake!! Apologies to you! I was looking at the latest TPs and then went to those fonts and then checked live-feed samplers of fonts. I obvoiusly got very confused -- didn't use 100% of my brain when I wrote about your font. Now I just hope that Meek  and teamwill agree that this is worthy of a TP *I'm going tomato-red*
