Absolutely awesome! Some letters could be improved for better recognition, but anyway, a very fine use of fontstruct!
Comment by architaraz 10th June 2013
It's kind of restricting, only 6 bricks (4 of which are the 1/4 circle bricks), so I am aware that there are some iffy letters, I'll see what I can do :)
Comment by Umbreon126 10th June 2013
Great, but I agree there are some legibility issues. I would make the letters something like this

I was trying to do a minimalist font here (well not really, I just stuck bricks together in an effort to make it look like the alphabet...), restricting to a circle in general, with a square brick to help (I was tempted, though, for obvious reasons). Thanks anyways for caring! But that looks great, much better than this one, you should publish it! :)

@Umbreon : Yautja work is really beautiful, but it's a completely different approach, despite the bricks similarities. Yours is very courageous maintaining all the through its minimalist abstract line and i personally find it much successful in term of legibility in its own way. It's the kind of fonts which is read first with brain then with the eyes and not the opposite as the usual majority of fonts(Yauta's included)are. It reminds me of the magnifique experimental approach of nazlfrag
and for instance the stunning desert bean
even if it uses completely different shapes.
...and also to some great abstract challenges of Cmunk.
The radical approach of this kind of works makes surely them hard to use, but only them have a "going beyond" quality that Yautja proposition does not have, even if it's also really successful in its own more mainstream and versatile way and i also definitely think he should publish it.

An interesting experiment, but it's never going to be high in the legibility ratings:)

@P2Pnut : i hope one day you'll expand and open a bit your so restricted and tight vision of legibility. It would help you perceive all the beauty of works like this.
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 11th June 2013
@AFT: (Sigh!!) Once again I would like to state that, whilst my ability to perceive and enjoy a wide range of aesthetics is fully intact, this is essentially a typography site. Even Umbreon126 stated, above, "And I can't read it either"

Comment by p2pnut 12th June 2013
@p2pnut: I'm going to have to agree with AFT here, you do kind of need to be more open to less legible works like this.

@Umbreon: There's some real minimal beauty in this one. Reminds me a bit of some of my first minimalist fonts here (look at 5Circlex, It has kind of the same idea as this)

I fully understand if you can or cannot read it and like or don't like it because of that, it's OK! Just please don't argue...
Comment by Umbreon126 12th June 2013
Don't worry Umbreon126 - no argument from me ... my original post was just following on from your statement about its readability. I actually said this design was interesting - and could have added that some glyphs were quite delightful.

The rest is just noise :)
Comment by p2pnut 13th June 2013
No argument from me either, sorry for the inappropriate noise produced on your page.
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 13th June 2013
No agrgument here either, sorry about feeding into it.
Comment by Noah (winty5) 13th June 2013
Well, I finally got around to publishing my version.
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 17th July 2013
Inspiring work!

So this is where it all began...
