On Reddit a discussion came up about the "Universal S", made up of straight lines, apparently there's been some form of it around the world for over 50 years, nobody truly knows where it came from.

Someone said they tried making other letters... I figured it'd be possible to do a full alphabet.  And I've done it here in Fontstruct.  Originally it was pixels only so it was jagged.  I've now used the angled blocks to smooth it out. 

There are a couple of cheats in play, e.g. extra wide M and W, and Q stepping outside the main lines.  Was tricky trying to differentiate U and V so there are a couple of versions.  Ultimately it's up to you, the user, to put these together as you want!  Minimal punctuation as it's for headings and logos.
