A monospaced font using only bricks from the connect category. It includes Basic Latin, along with variations of each letter.
Glyphs are with large stroke. Black and Bold ones are Filled. White and Double-Struck ones are with small stroke. Gray and Blackletter ones are with a combination of large and small stroke
Includes a large subset of Latin-1 as well along with a small subset of certain other unicode blocks
Supports Latin, Greek (Including the Seven Coptic Letters) and Lisu Scripts

BUISJES — Geometric outlined sans-serif design
[ INTRODUCTION ]
While at first I was just updating one of my custom brick tool sets with some additional new pre-build custom composite bricks which seemlessly fit and allign with the dimensions of FontStruct's default connection brick set, the font more or less materialized as this happy accident while I was fooling around and constructed several basic letterforms and shapes for testing these composite brick solutions I was making.
Before realizing it I had about half-a-alphabet's worth of random letter doodles. From there on out I simply decided to copy the letters that came from this test run and drop them into a new FontStruct project and just resumed building the remainder of what would later become this rather modernist clean looking geometric outline sans.
Now, keep in mind that working with the constraints of these (largely 'Composite'-like) and somewhat oddball physically natured 'Connection'-bricks is very limited, and can be quite tricky. They simply doesn't allow the same level of design freedom FS's 'Core'-bricks do (E.g. the centre allignement, their thickness and that 30-bricks-only limited palette size for each of the three variations). To acquire some of that more distinctive and specific tailor made geometry usually requires clever brick arrangements that consist from a mixture of both multi-stacked-composites and brick overlaps to patch gaps and smoothen curve contours.
This process can sometimes become very 'trial / error' -based and unpredictable when complexity increases. Distracting at times, as it gets in the way of primary objectives. To constantly having to invent different new solutions that work simply doesn't help creative workflow. Therefor I decided to dive a little deeper into expanding my pre-fabricated'ready-to-use' composite brick palette.
[ ANALYTICS ]
So far I'm very pleased with the final result, especially with how easy this new set of custom brick composites turn out to create new letters. The bricks feel very intuitive to work with, and unlock quick access to greater sophistication and shaping of more complex geometry. Opening up several new possibilities that are impossible to construct solely from the default 'Connection' -brick palette. So having them at my disposal in a pre-fab fashion is certainly gonna help streamline the workflow.
[ THE FONT ]
As far as for the font's aesthetica, there isn't all that much spectacular going on really. The basic geometry provides a rigid solid looking lettering that produces this fairly legible text. The modern yet clean characteristics making it the perfect match for a broad range application.
• Multi-Lingual (105 languages supported)
• Some glyph alternate forms
• Kerning (1922 stored pairs)
The font name refers to its tubular characteristics and comes from the Dutch word Buizen, which literally translate to Tubes in English.

I started this... more than eleven years ago (!), and changed directions at least a couple of times along the way, so perhaps it would have been better to start from scratch.
Anyway, I thought it would be an appropriate typeface for the holiday season :-)
A variant of Radio Grave which took many hours to produce. I think the effort was worth it! This is a functional Multi-font and can produce a broad range of effects, especially when used at down near the original size.
1. Use the darkest tone on the outermost concentric region and get lighter as one progresses inward.
2. Let the 5x5 region surrounding the exact center of each glyph use the lightest tone, except when this would place the lightest tone into its neighboring region.
3. Glyphs with diagonals and glyphs which use a smaller than 5x5 drawing area may bend rule 2 for the sake of more consistent and/or interesting shading.

Another variant on Derpberd, this time with outlines.

I once made a personalized pixelated dollar bill, 25 dollar bill, and I made this font because I liked the big pixelated 25s at the left and right corners of the dollars.
