*Updated to 26 characters*
I started this Fontstruction with a blank canvas and blank mind, and decided to draw my phone (guess which one that is!) to just warm up. Before I knew it, the idea for the whole design was staring me right in the face. Hopping around the internet, looking for images and information on which phones to draw was great fun. Who knew that the first ‘personal communicator’ was the IBM South Bell Simon, which combined the features of a mobile phone, a pager, a PDA, and a fax machine. Yes, you read that right! The Simon was also nine inches tall.

A new font that contains a lot of characters, over 350. Most of them are very pixely looking (all characters were at the start, thus Riged (I know its not spelt that way)). I then started to add curves and circles to basic latin and I am going to continue until the font is a good font that everyone can enjoy. If you have any tips that would make this font better then please tell me as I am sure I have made a few mistakes.
*UPDATE - "x", "M", "m" have now been fixed 5th July 2008
