Designed for illegibility. In theory, leverages neuroplasticity so you can read it after practice and nobody else can. May not be useful to anybody else. May not even work for me. Experimental.
Note: This is named "Cryptonomicon Basis", as the general form of the letters is the Cryptonomicon and this is the reference font- other fonts can be made with the same letter form and still implement Cryptonomicon.

I looked into the definition of introverted as a word, which simply breaks down as ‘to turn into one’s self’ so leading off of this I went about recording and observing objects that I felt had this characteristic in common. The most successful and clearest representation of this I felt was blinds, as they turn into themselves and also act as deliberate screen mechanism. This then became the foundation of my type design, mimicking the lines of the blinds within my typeface. I also wanted to play with the idea of reducing the letterform as much as possible without losing legibility,
as I felt that this helped to further portray introverts because it is as if the letters are becoming hidden with the background.
