It's been a while since I've been very active here FS. I had this very incomplete font sitting around in my library and I really adored the slick, yet modern feel of these characters.
These characters are relatively small, and I felt that I needed to truly push the boundaries with a limited set of blocks.
Completed an old piece that I had laying around for a while! The style may be influenced by the work of others, but I couldn't just not finish this.
My most recent debacle is no longer a tragedy thanks to Sed4tives (Thanks!). ;)
I made an extra long space in Specials so that the line height and/or leading would work out with the 2x2 blocks (at least, in Fonstruct previews).
The idea is to have a spinning ying-yang symbol as the pattern to qualify it as a counter. Plus, it's a container, using the negative space where the pattern is broken-up, to define the characters. I also used mini ying-yang symbols to round some of the edges, or perhaps to define a boundry that required it.
A Designer's font with decorative tiles instead of letters as we know them. I think they'd make nice borders. Lord Quadretto has a sample of a frame.
We live in a world controlled by technology. As a creative professional I rely on tech to perform my primary business activities, whilst I am extremely pro-technology, I also recognise the negative impacts it has on society.
The theme for this project is ‘Dangerous’.
Please feel free to use this font as you wish, I would appreciate being told in advance as I love to see my work in use.

Something "fun". Inspired by the many journeys I've made and by train travels. And by my grandchildren's train toys. The angular design echoes small table tops we sometimes use to put the tracks on ...
UC is normal weight and is used in the sampler (font name). LC has some thicker lines for increased legibility although this font is only meant to illustrate concepts (travel, finding new ways, diversification etc) or for logos, shop signs, invitations and similar. Not simple enough for use in anything long or complex that has to be easily read.
This illustrates a tired when locking up the workshop; having spent days painting bits of wood I needed to relax.
I like those small designs some people add to their fonts with the copyright date; some are wonderful 'illustrations' of their name, my sports shoe was inspired by that idea (I like elmoyenique's eye and Doug Peter's logo).
