This is one of the ways I've always wanted to use layering in Fontstruct. Finally, it's possible :) Just a quick font to test the new feature - a grey shadow (ligh source from left to right) that is cast on inner white space of the letters.
P.S. I won't be able to sleep today, so many ideas to test... Thank you, Rob!
TwentiesComp entry, inspired by art deco architecture. Not sure about the V, left some variations there for comparison. Also the uppercase/lowercase grave and acute are different, would like to hear which you prefer.
Decorative, ArtDeco-ish all uppercase font for TwentiesComp. Got carried away and added Cyrillic too ;) Enjoy!
Art-deco style font developed from the letter s (which wasn't that easy to make).
Decorative experimental letters drawn around XX pattern.
An art deco-esque font inspired by the blackboard bold or double struck typefaces often used to represent sets of numbers, such as ℤ for the integers.

A FutureComp entry. Emphasis on the balance between future/past with a theme of: "There is no future without a past". Counter-clockwise (inner arrow) direction is for the past while the clockwise (outside arrow) direction is for the future.

WiP/ kerning in progress
Another folded style.
There is a number of glyphs I would've rather seen different, like for example G, V, Y, 4, maybe 7. And the punctuation is very poorly done too. But I got kind of stuck and didn't know where to take it any further,
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.
It's Monday, so I really didn't want to work too hard on this one.
Testing the new square connector bricks with a simple outline font.
I ran into an anomaly where one of the new bricks glitches out after saving. Easy to fix using other bricks, but I'm leaving it here to show some interesting effects the glitch is producing.
1. It looks like there is a boolean operation going on with it. Something we've been asking for for a while.
2. When grabbing the brick, it highlights an area of about 9 grid spaces, as if it were a group of bricks connected together. Another feature that has been requested for a while.
Anyways, the brick in question is the last one listed on the Bricks:Connect panel
I was trying to make a very narrow font that doesn't look just like a set of parallel sticks when used. I was inspired by Raranga by Aeolien, Log Beach by elw123 and Ladedan by zephram.
