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.

Huge thanks to the person who voted a '1' for this font. Who ever you are, your actions shows everyone else how childish, immature, twisted and insecure you must be. Grow up will you, you sad little boy. Why don't you take your non-constructive, negative behaviour elsewhere. I could understand if it were a 5 or 6, but a 1 is the lowest of the low. You should be ashamed of yourself. Jealous, bitter, I think so? Thanks

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “AF Cableguynium 1” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) Fri, 21st December

Wow! Where have you been hiding for almost ten years? A well deserved top-pick, never mind the ratings!

Version 3 is my favorite.

Samples are really cool, showcasing work is something that I lack that's why I sort-of "envy" those who can.

Huge thanks to Rob for the TP. Big smile on my face. :D

Comment by Audio Fri, 21st December

@architaraz. There's no doubting you're the king of the curved inline font, with such beauties as AT Rosalla, AT Esrever, AT Chaperon, AT Aday, AT Raushan and the classic Argyn to name but a few of your ultra creative fonts. So I'm honoured that you like my font. :)

Comment by Audio Fri, 21st December

Woah, haven't seen this kind of font on FS for a while, love it! I love how it retains the 'modular' feel, yet looks sophisticated at the same time. Don't worry, I got your rating back :)

Comment by cablecomputer Sun, 23rd December

Damn this is very cool mate. Your sample layout design is mucha nice as well. 

And like architaraz said, don't mind the votings. (though it still kind of upsets me as well each time) but this bs is systematically done to nearly half the contributions here.

One last thing.. please don't tell me you did 500+ fonts all this good!! :P

Anyway, 10/10 here, well deserved.

How To Make Alternates?

Comment by alekoymostro Thu, 27th December

You would need to use OpenType Stylistic Sets to use them, but copy-paste a letter and change it a bit...

Comment by Se7enty-Se7en Fri, 28th December

@Sed4tives Thanks for the comment. There's no way that the 400+ fonts are as good as this......... may be 399, but definately not 400. Ha ha, I'm joking. My early work really leaves a lot to be desired, although they are simple they retain high usability, as I design lots of fonts specifically for logos. 

Comment by Audio Fri, 28th December

@Se7enty-Se7en. You are correct, but I much prefer to use single fonts for this particular font. There are, in my opinion, simply too many variations for it to work smoothly with OpenType, although with just a few select characters it would work well with OT features, just not the whole font. There are over 6 fonts in the whole family.... and may be even more. :)

Comment by Audio Fri, 28th December

Btw, a funny thing with this down vote nonsense, at some point I even suspected you to be behind this in my case!! ;)

Comment by Sed4tives Fri, 28th December

@Sed4tives I realise I'm a bit brutally honest sometimes, but i'm always trying to be contructive. Voting a one, is not my thing. I don't see the point, it's just being vindictive. I prefer not to vote at all, unless a fontstruct is a 9 or 10/10. I think if members vote, then it should be stated who voted in a list with the stats, that way everyone is accountable for their actions, and we'll soon weed out who is responsible.
