At the end of October I decided to dive into the new Bricks 'Connect'. I started with the lowercase 's' & 'a'. Working out what the minimal size I could fontstruct it in, then expanded and condensed it from there to accomadate the rest of the glyths. You can still see these in the font above (Just before the Latin charachters. As I progressed I came to love the thin white gaps, and then tried to have every glyth with some element of the curved white gap in it. Some were more successful than others. As you can see, I have included the less preferred options at the end. I've also designed some of the final glyphs in illustrator, as it was impossible to have all of them with one white line, without help from an external app.
The most difficult glyphs to create and ultimately the most satisfying once completed were the 'V' and '~'.
I liked the look of final font so much, that I decided to create a whole family. Cableguynium 0 (which has Zero cables), CableGuynium 2 (which has 1-2 cables per glyth), and CableGuynium 3 (Which has 3-4 cables).
Unusually I struggled naming this font, I have early versions saved called Flowonica, Rubber Tyre, Ice Skater and Fibropticon, ..... eventually settling on CableGuynium as it was the most memorable.
ANY CRITICISM, GOOD OR BAD IS WELCOMED.
A design inspired by school uniforms, sports team jerseys, etc.
UC cloned to LC to make this easier to use...
I've added the glyphs I needed for a gift tag.
Naturally I share this extension because that's in the spirit of cloned work.
I found adding the numbers and punctuation marks quite difficult: not only the actual shapes of the bricks and composites and how they join but because keeping the visual effects of joining and linking was surprisingly complicated as I wanted everything to match the feel of the parent font as closely as possible.
If anybody else wants to add further glyphs: please make sure you publish your extension as cloneable, and add your name and year of addition to those already mentioned (in the unicode setting: look for Dingbats)This is a clone of Koily Kord
Just in time for the "Olympic August", this font is perfect for all sports enthousiasts specially for(followers of) team sports. The font is great for posters and invitations, too. It is ideal for colouring in. Make a blank t-shirt with round neck line by using "[" plus "]".Unfortunately you won't be able to get to type those 'more Latin' glyphs -like the fractions- that aren't on your keyboard. Unless of course you know how to because I don't!
