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.

[ THE CREATIVE PROCESS ] ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
This font was made because I have a cat. I love my cat, and this delight of a friend obviously loves me back. In addition to all this love, I also love to craft fonts, my cat is not to very fond about this.. So she loves to craft all sort of drama to gain my attention. Wearing me down with her mere persistence. I'm not to very fond about this.. So I slab her in the tiny face and modulate the crap out of her, stressing that nifty lil' stalker-happy pleb untill she gets a stroke. Than I make gashing incisions to all her intersects, making a pet-stencil.
No cats were harmed while making this font, this is just how we roll.
And one might wonder what a apple is doing inside a cat-font?? I know, but dont worry, the cat isn't a vegi...

[ FINAL WORDS ] ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I guess that didn't clarify the ins and outs of this design, thats too bad !!
All I can say is that this is once again another concept following in the footsteps of the 'Bauhaus'-minimalism style and philosophy. Since I was not done yet with this whole raging Bauhaus frenzy..
― Lena hopes that nobody likes this font so far...
