A scifi-inspired type design. Upper and lower case. Expands on some concepts from some of my other Fontstructions: Power Grid and Transmission.

Here's a sample setting of Technobabble.

Looking good - heading for warp speed :)
Comment by p2pnut 4th November 2009
Very nice. Maybe increase the width of the space character a tad.
Comment by aphoria 4th November 2009
I think you are right, aphoria. Originally, I had the space too wide and think I over-corrected. I added a little more space...
Comment by Sketchbook B 4th November 2009
Very smartly executed and well balanced. Nice job Sketchbook.

I love it all, apart from the 'W' & 'w'. Never been a fan of that solution.
It reads extremely well though, and like a dream at low pixel size.

Great work! I'm a fan of clean geometric fonts with a technical flair about them, and this one definitely is a worthy addition to the genre. I wouldn't even see it in the science fiction corner too much, this is pretty widely usable.
Cool that you took the time for the More Latin set too...

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Technobabble” is now a Top Pick.

(I agree with djnippa about the Ws though.)
Comment by gferreira_admin 9th November 2009
No love for the trident-like Ws? They definitely give this more of a techno feel than if Sketchbook B had merely inverted the M (another option for the capital). I guess I see their point, in this case...B, you could try something really out-of-place but cool: separating the middle stroke from the rest of the letterform by deleting a choice brick...Hmm, this implies the stencil possibilities. I suggest dropping the crotch of the Vs a half brick below the baseline for a tad more optical accuracy. Medium and bold weights would also be nice.

Good work : )

Hey everyone. Thanks for the feedback. There is absolutely no love for the "trident" W's. I was going for a techno/futuristic look...

I showed it to my (normally very supportive) wife and she declared that it looked like "saggy butt cheeks." So I changed it but moved the old W's into another slot... stylistic alternative, I guess :)

Good call on the optical correction on the V/v. I went ahead and made the change.

I am working on a few variants. Definitely a bold and a set of small caps...

This is wonderful! I will be using this for a Blender project! (It's in it's very early stages)
