Based on the theme of 'repetition' my type design is completely based on crosswords. A crossword is a word puzzle that normally takes the form of a square or a rectangular grid of white and black shaded squares, however i decided to remove the black background that is normally visible as i wanted to create a clear, sleek and flowing typeface. Initially i wanted to create the whole font out of 4x3, but soon i realised that some letters wouldn't work and that would then make the whole font harder to read so i increased my canvas size per letter to 5x5 maximum. The numbers have no relevance to the shape of the letters, they are just evenly spread so that they don't duplicate next to each other. I have started playing around with other versions of the font and hope to get them live soon.

Cheers man! Hadn't thought of that, definitely giving that a go and I might also try blacken out all the background to get the effect of an actual crossword. Thanks for the help nath.

awh blacking out the back would be cool man, good shout. both ideas will just give the typeface a bit more weight i think, and make it standout some more.
