Please tell me what you think of this, rather than bashing everything with half a star, as you like to rigorously do with all our / my lovingly created FontStructures…

Authentic eye-catching glyphs, Maestra! Very unexpected option, I especially like the mobility offered by the white spaces between letters.

Comment by elmoyenique 20th june 2022

Alternating upper and lower case gives lots of scope to play with postive and negative space. I love how you have layered it to make a near abstract compostion in the yellow sample.

Comment by four 20th june 2022

Your knack for what the characters should look like is scary good. I'm always, always impressed. 

Comment by thalamic 21st june 2022

Lovely futuristic typeface, the inverted version of the letters works really well, it's an ingenious solution. As always your fonts are top for me.

@ Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff), @ thalamic, @ four, @ maestroElmo
Thank you very much, dear ones. I'll gladly spend a night or two with Fontstruct for you ; ) 

Comment by beate 27th june 2022

Alternating black and white characters, and playing with "white" space; it's a great idea. These letters look trendy. Honestly, I better say no more, as I don't fully understand your design. 10/10

Congrats for winning beate, well deserved!! _O_

Comment by Sed4tives 21st july 2022

This font proves how versatile and capable you are as a type designer. Your works usually only leave me speechless, but this time the cold, brutalist style is what warms my heart. That, and the very fitting inverted lowercase. Just wow. Well deserved winner. 

Comment by Neoqueto 23rd july 2022

Is it just me or does the X look a bit lower than the rest of the letters?

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) 23rd july 2022

Yup, seems the glyph is one row lower than the others!

Comment by Sed4tives 23rd july 2022

@dear beate: I think you could add a little black rectangle on the top side of the w to even it out with the rest, IMHO.

@elmo oups! I fixed.

@BWM Thanks for the hint, the x has moved down one line ; ) 

@Sed4tives and @Neoqueto Thank you for your sincere comments. I am glad that you like this fontstruction.

Comment by beate 26th july 2022

Hi @beate,

Your font was featured in an album cover!

Comment by frongile 3rd october 2022

wait... so this font is so popular by 1st in the competition, that even the font appears...       IN AN ALBUM‽‽‽

Comment by lucapri 1st november 2022

The way the letters combined in the third sample definetly reminds me of one of my fonts, Punycone.


Comment by lucapri 24th december 2022

B likes "3". lol
