Unicase font with the best of the 80's flavour and the great Expressa typeface in mind. A new try melting frontiers between upper and lowercase, all in a row. Hope you've fun with it!

Very funky stuff.. clever use of x-height allignement for some characters. And wonderful 4, 6 and 8. 🥰

The Bahamas vibe. I like this one, weird and unique at the same time.

Comment by Kiên Trung (trungdangTrung Kiên) Sat, 28th october

@Kiên Trung:...Bauhamas!

Comment by Sed4tives Sat, 28th october

i really want to message someone

Comment by anonymous-1438277 Sat, 28th october

@Sed4tives: Thanks a lot, pal! Only was a fool idea rescued from one of my very old designs (I made it using Letraset adhesive letters for the texts, btw. Zikkurath was a spanish SF magazine)...

@Kiên Trung: Thank you very much! And I love "Bauhamas"!

Wait, its name was actually Bauhamas!? Anyway, it's clever from the use of the x-height AND to just apply the lowercase version to the vowel.

Comment by Kiên Trung (trungdangTrung Kiên) Sun, 29th october

Bauhamas was just a word play joke by me 😉

Comment by Sed4tives Sun, 29th october

You guys 😅. (That joke made me searching Google immediately.)

Comment by Kiên Trung (trungdangTrung Kiên) Sun, 29th october

You never know what such random search keys might bring for hidden gems, I had a fair share of luck and treasure that way!

Comment by Sed4tives Sun, 29th october

How about more kerning?

Comment by Sed4tives Sun, 29th october

I wonder if full height vowel letters could be added as well (plus glyphs to extend the line on the C, L, Z) (I tried building the full height A in GIMP to the best of my ability)

@elmoyenique - Reminiscent of SONY's WALKMAN logo font from the 1980s.  Great job!  :^)

Comment by Goatmeal Sun, 29th october

One major difference is the dotted A in WALKMAN

Comment by Sed4tives Sun, 29th october

Where'd you learn the 3x3 macaroni trick?

Comment by frongile Sun, 29th october

That's why it's merely... "Reminiscent."   ;^D  (The L is off, too.)  Not threadjack, but here's my take on the logo from almost 13 years ago: Take A Walk, Man!

Comment by Goatmeal Sun, 29th october

@Sed4tives Can you unblock me?

Comment by anonymous-1438277 Mon, 30th october

@Sed4: Thanks. Trying the kern.

@BWM: Good idea. I'm thinking on it.

@Goatmeal: Thank you, master! Glad you like it.

@frongile: I'm not really sure, I think it could have been when I was designing zophyka, which had a lot of curves of various sizes. It doesn't matter.

Comment by elmoyenique Mon, 30th october

Some glyphs detailed.

Comment by elmoyenique Sat, 4th november

@BWM: Thanks. It was a good idea, but it's difficult to extend it to this font (at least for me, with problems with the different length of the glyph line under e or i, etc...). Maybe in another similar way, working with it a little more... I'm thinking about it.
