This is a great example of how 2.0 features allow Fontstructions to break free of the modular look. Well done.

looks really nice.
Comment by zen_killa 11th May 2010
What a curvy delight this is. I kept increasing the size to see whether the curves broke down ... but they stay beautiful right up to the max size.
Comment by p2pnut 11th May 2010
Maybe the curves in the S slacks of natural (see enlarged sample I made), but that's all that I found, it looks really like a non fontstruct font. Technically outstanding, but I still don't get very much the style, i'm a bit ashamed of it because it is so well done, question of taste and affinity I guess.

Great work geneus1.

I love the K, Q, R, a, and s.

Should the R maybe have the serifs on the left like the B, D, P, etc?
Comment by aphoria 11th May 2010
@fugitiveglue. Thanks. The FontStruct 2.0 features really open up new doors toward non-modularity.

@zen_killa. Thanks.

@p2pnut. Each curve was built with the intention of maintaining its character in multiple sizes.

@neurone_error. The middle curves in the S are intentionally larger to suggest more of an angle in the diagonal stroke of the glyph. It was originally smaller, but later changed to its current appearance. Before that, the previous S, which I moved to the $ position, took its place. I actually prefer that one, but I switched it due to its differentiation in style and curve limitations.

@aphoria. Thanks. I'm not sure what you mean though. The left sides of the serifs on B, D, P are all the same. I did shorten the size of all inner serifs to aid in readability at smaller sizes. The serifs on the lowercase are also smaller than the upper to help legibility and enable tighter spacing. Lowercase ascenders are flared more to swoop over capitals. Lowercase counters in the a, b, d, etc. have been enlarged at the bottoms to also help with legibility at smaller sizes.

An ultrabold face with very sharp and refined serifs. It looks fantastic. If I have to pick a few letters, I would very much like the G,K,N,R, but all the others are great too. The A,V,W remain an enigma: how you've managed the steep angles without compromising the rest of the curves? And there are other nice tricks we've never seen before. It's amazing how soon you've become proficient with FS 2.0. Indiglo has raised the bar to new heights. For the rest of us that means there is a lot of homework to do. Congratulations. 10/10

@Geneus1 I want to explain further, but something is wrong with the either the previewer or your font (hope not!).

Comment by aphoria 12th May 2010
I think it could be the rotation feature, as I been having similar problems as well; after I've saved it, then reloaded it, it changes things!!
It changed whole lines for the wrong brick, all every corner!!
Comment by djnippa 12th May 2010
Ugh. Thanks for spotting the problem, Aphoria. I think you're right, Nippa. The same thing has happened over at Renovare S1. .
After some investigation, it looks like all instances of rotated composites have turned into blank bricks in the FontStructor. This has also occurred after editing and saving. The saved fontstruction retains all rotation information, but all instances of the composite brick in the MyBricks panel and in the workspace, including the non-rotated original, have been blanked out. I'll have to check with Meek if it is something that can be salvaged without editing.

I guess for now I'll have to do everything right the first time and not save over anything. ;-)
Comment by geneus1 12th May 2010
It's also composites that have then been stacked. They appear in the Myblocks section (once saved & reloaded) as solid squares.

It's just happened again on another font. Wasted another 4 hours!

I'll wait to Rob has a look at it before I design any more.
Comment by djnippa 12th May 2010
I'm looking into this today.
@djnippa Stacking composites isn't supported yet. It slipped into the release yesterday by mistake. I'll remove that today as well. It should be supported soon though.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 13th May 2010
It looks like meek got it fixed.

The R looks like what I was trying to describe, so I'm guessing that was they way you made it originally.
Comment by aphoria 14th May 2010
Since Meek is still identifying the problem, I reverse engineered the missing bricks via global brick replacements. I'm not entirely sure if this is identical to the original. Hopefully the changes last.
Comment by geneus1 15th May 2010
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Indiglo” is now a Top Pick.
