A single grid square isn't much to work with... :)
Suggestions welcome.

Love it! Good work packing it into 1 little square. 10/10

If I may make a general comment ... This is very good for all it's limitations. I just can't understand why there is such an emphasis on limiting oneself by creating these tiny fonts, when there is a big wide world of design available.
Comment by p2pnut 20th March 2013
@P2Pnut : Maybe finally it's the same kind of emphasis which makes you and many others hard efforts to draw curves with polygones when you know they will never be curves at the final. Some irresistible call of the impossible.
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 20th March 2013
@p2p: Thank you for asking, because I never really thought about it before. I guess I saw this particular design as a challenge to see how well I could create a font with the limitations of a very small scale.

@AFT: I think you might be right as well. And it might sound strange, but I am a fan of your work, and p2pnut's and beate's, too, even though you work in very different styles.

Yes, and i also have my own quite "impossible" obsessions : to make harmony and balance out of so many different and complex shapes! Thanks ETH for your support

composite brick
Comment by Account Moved (Groszak) 22nd April 2013
@Groszak: Did you mean that every letter is one composite brick? If so, you are correct.
Comment by ETHproductions 22nd April 2013
Wow! I've tried some similar 1-brick solutions in the past...

lowercase l is ugly.

i say LOWERCASE """""""""L""""""""" IS U G L Y
Comment by Account Moved (Groszak) 7th May 2013
I have created composite&stack 1x1 font too. It have some features like slashed zero (but indentical to Ø). Letter V help:
Comment by Account Moved (Groszak) 7th May 2013
@elmoyenique: That's a very cool composite font! I don't think you've published it, have you?

@Groszak: Thanks for the suggestion for the V. I considered it originally, but I decided the curved one goes better with the rest of the font. And yes, I stacked bricks, too.

I don't quite understand what you mean about lowercase l. Do you have any suggestions?

Also, when I click on your clone, I don't see anything, like all the letters got erased. Is there some sort of technical error causing this?

lowercase L get`in from dejavu sans mono

More characters, and a dotted 0.

Comment by ImmaPooh 23rd January 2017

@ImmaPooh Dotted 0 is actually a great idea, thanks. I don't know how many more chars I can realistically create on a 2x2 composite grid though... (I know there's up to 4x4 composites now, but I'd like to keep this particular font free of HTML5 features.)
