That's good news. FS may have fixed the problem.

Something fresh! The overall color is just great, strong but with delicates details. Love it!

so simple yet very sophisticated. like many of your fonts, it feels you are orchestrating the bricks much like your music - definite rhythm and musicality here. i see you kept busy during fs collaboration 1 :)

This is a strange one, and maybe I should have put this up earlier, on all versions rather than the just the JUMP DROP version.
A jpeg sample of this font was posted in a chat room, asking if anyone knew what it was called?. No one did, so I designed Neopolicia around it.
I'm very pleased with my version, and I feel that it is more usable than the sample I based it on. I felt I had created so much out of nothing, that it deserves it's own place, and respect.

I've also been told by Aphoria that the whole font is called Grant. Which I suppose is pretty obvious looking at the sample!

Having found this out yesterday, and looked through every letter, I still feel my version is far more usable, even though it's based on something else.

I just discovered Grant a couple days ago on the Font Fabric site. I immediately thought how easy it would be to replicate in FontStruct. So happy to see you actually went throught with it!!

After a long discussion, the FontStruct staff decided to remove the Top Pick badge from this FontStruction. While we’re happy that FontStructors are inspired by the work of other type designers, sometimes the similarities are too great to merit a Top Pick.

This was a very difficult decision, but we believe that we are acting in the interest of our entire creative community. We are ready to start a discussion about originality in type design and criteria for assigning Top Picks.

90% of fonts on Fontstruct are all sparked by some other font in some way.
100% of every font ever designed in the world are based on a previous font, after all they are simply shapes that must be adhered to. How many variations of Helvetica are there? How many typewriter fonts, Black Letter, Art Deco. The fact they are in catagories denotes they are similar by fault.

This is the poorest decision to be made by Fontstruct.
I learned a lot from designing this font, and with the little I had to go on (10 Characters), I think I've done an unbelievable job, and a more usable font that Grant.
My version is less condensed, and has enough variations to warrant it's own merit.

This will get every ones back up.
Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was Top of the Top Picks.

A very poor decision, and the worst move Fontstruct have ever done.

I'll remove these fonts once this discussion has concluded. You have really upset the happy nature and good will of this site. What do you do about Cloning? Surely anything cloned from now on would never get a Top Pick? Your going to have to revoke at least 20% of the Top Picks in that case. Then there's the ones that are based on other Fontstructs that's another 40%. Then the ones that are based on other fonts outside of Fontstruct, that's another 30%. You've got a lot of bad kharma coming your way.

Fontstruct is supposed to be fun.

I guess that's stopped now. The party pooper has arrived.
