I was inspired by the recent influx of minimal-grid fonts. I wanted to see if I, too, could manage to get a readable font with very few blocks and a small grid. This is a 3x3 font. I've used full square, indent square and quarter circle bricks. Maybe I can add a few more punctuation marks and symbol glyphs, but I found this size very restrictive. I have not looked through the fonts created since FS started, I'm suspect that what I have built here has already been done and apologise to any earlier creator but I honestly didn't copy nor clone your work.

I think most of us here have tried a mini-font at some time or another ... usually without a great deal of success. To my mind it is such a limiting format that I swiftly dismissed it and prefer to roam the wide open spaces of the full screen :)

I think Z should be like a reversed S, but with square edges. Good work!

@p2pnut: I have tried big fonts with no success, and I prefer to explore the realm of mini-fonts.
