A chimera (fusion) which combines inline-versus-outline, maze, Gemscript, and other techniques to produce a timeless look.


Original size: 6.75pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)

Design Rules:

1. Square bricks only.

2. A 1px soft border of negative space must exist between lines whenever possible.

3. Glyphs must fill the 9x9 grid to the greatest extent possible given the rounded style.

4. The set of glyphs shall be a heterogeneous mix of symmetrical and asymmetrical forms.

5. Negative space will replace positive in any situation wherein the small grid size or the geometry of a letterform would be detrimental to the chosen style. This includes all situations where any shape lacks at least a soft 1px border of negative space around it.
