A design based on waffles and cheap lawnchairs - you know, the ones with woven plastic stretched over a tubular frame. "Awful Waffle" is a colloquial nickname for Waffle House.
Like many of my fonts, I'm just doodling and publishing this one to get the idea down. Maybe I'll continue it later.

Some kind of patchwork or frayed woven look.
Here at Marengi Omnisystems, we like to put a twist on the ordinary. Consider the plus sign. Normal plus signs have four termini. But, after dozens of minutes of modification, the plus sign can be transformed into myriad other shapes, all of which are even pointier than the original. Don't Worry, No Frankenplusses Here! These are actually organic, free-range, grass-fed plus signs that we chopped up and glued together. Don't you wish all stories could end so happily?
Another experiment. I made a grid out of the pinwheel shapes, then started drawing on it. Not sure why the bugged glyph count... hope nothing goes wrong...
Try viewing at 2x Pixel size to see how it is intended to look!
Type one of `|\^ then a letter to texture the background as well!
Type _ to create the blank pattern between letters.
Original size: 51pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
1. Alphabetic glyphs must fill the pinwheel grid space as much as possible.
2. The pinwheels must not touch any letter's perimeter line. Nor must they deviate from their formation, except when being deleted to make room for the perimeter lines.
3. 90-degree angles only.
P.S. There’s a starting character on Í (option+shift+s for Mac). Spaces can be used to pad the wave effect and create shapes and background textures. Enjoy!This is a clone of xe O Marks the Font
