Thanks so much!

I'm around today so I'll focus on giving this more numerals and symbols.

I would like to improve this design without transforming it into something else. The guide below shows part of the counter shape of "B" at an extreme size. 

Because the bricks in the occupied squares had to be nudged into place, only a single square can contain the solution. The solution has to be something that can be nudged into place, so it can be no more than 1/2 square in width or length.

Any ideas?

I cannot draw a solution right now since im at my mobile device, but how about a slight sharper angle towards the beveled corner brick that connects flush with it?

@Sed4tives: Yes, that's the kind of idea I was hoping to implement. But I cannot come up with anything workable, because I can't nudge anything from the "solution needs to fit here" square far enough to bridge the gap between the two beveled portions.

Below is my best solution so far: It looks natural and high quality, but it also changes the counter shape significantly. I wonder if it's too drastic of a change?

Hmm... I think I will proceed with the above changes. I can't tell anything has been changed except at immense point sizes, so at <92pt the font looks exactly the same.

EDIT: All glyphs have been updated.
