Small-grid doodle which creates new combinatorial forms.
I considered this design rather rough and unappealing until I gave it negative spacing. This caused the forms to merge together in unpredictable and interesting ways. The lesson here is that sometimes the metrics, not the aesthetics, are what "make" or "save" a design.
A WIP for now, there is basic kerning in the font. Accented latin letters intentionally not kerned at the moment as I'm still figuring out how the accented letters should be kerned and I cannot directly type them on a keyboard. I might post a sample if/when I get the other letters kerned. Speaking of spacing, Should I have the left and right most bounds of the accented letters touch the left and right guides respectively?
