I am studying in my third year of Graphic Design at the university of the west of England (Bristol UWE). I've been away from fontstruct for over a year now, and over the last few weeks I've seen some of the new first year students using it a lot. I couldn't help but notice the new bricks and brick stacking features that are now available. I have designed this typeface on a very small scale, to allow for the bezier curves created by the new bricks. I have had to use some creative brick stacking in order to get as much form out of the typeface as I could. Some of the lowercase glyphs seem to have some similar resemblance to the modernist typeface "universal" by Herbert Bayer. Although "universal" has no uppercase glyphs, whereas mine does! I am really pleased with this font, so thanks very much to fontstruct for putting in the new features. When using this font, I recommend that you set the tracking to around -120 or so, and set the kerning to "optical" rather than metrics". The letters will set quite nicely under these settings. Hope you like it! - Joe

Quite interesting... I love watching it to see how you manage some glyph.
3@e are cool

I'm not sure about the W

I love this font

Thanks Upixel. I wasn't sure about the W either. I've changed the W now to another possibility that I had made. I think it works a bit better now. Because of the tiny scale that it's the only real possibility I could make that would sit with the font.

I like this font too, I think it has a nice weight to it!

A lot to like about this design. Are the V, X, Y & Z a wee bit thin?
Have you come across the 'new' angles yet ... if not then search for 'Angles' - it is largely based on the work of djnippa, aphoria and geneus1

Thanks for that p2pnut. No I had'nt seen these new angles before. Some of those font they've made are incredible! The new angles open a whole new world of fontsructing!

I really like the kind of modernistic feel of this font. Nice work indeed.
