Holy shit! That´s a really nice concept.
Comment by Magic Sam 4th june 2009
Wow. It almost makes me dizzy. Great stuff!
Comment by aphoria 4th june 2009
One of the nice things about any Fontstruction is that it's very transparent to the community of users the kind of work that went into making it. You can't hide behind PS filters, stock art, or other tricky shortcuts. It makes looking at a font like this so much richer. I can see quickly the knuckle-grinding work (and thought) that went into this one. Nice job.
Comment by afrojet 4th june 2009
Thank you for the nice words, everyone. I am grateful to all of you (and everyone else) for your (and their) own fontsuctions because they make me learn. Creativity is boundless here. It's awesome to see. :D

@afrojet: This was a surprisingly simple font to do. There I was waiting for someone to get dressed and ready, looking at a wall in sharp perspective with circular decorative pieces hung on it...and my mind wandered. I had the font complete in my head before my waiting was over. The hard part was done. Next it was just a matter of getting 6x10 matrix of dots live, and a simple copy/paste the dot-block on each letter and deleting the dots not needed. Doing it did not take more than 45 minutes, nor should it have because it is basically just a 6x10 dot-matrix font. Thank you.

Mind blowing. Great for logos.
Comment by djnippa 5th june 2009
Whoa! is right! Spectacular, minimum.
Comment by SquarePeg 6th june 2009
Every now and then I come across a font that makes me jealous...this one of them :)
Comment by Stelios Constantinides (sconstantinides) 7th june 2009
Brilliant!! Using the dot matrix is pretty darn clever, and opens the door for other more complex ideas.
Comment by nemoorange 9th june 2009
great work. maybe you can do mirror-image version - where it goes from smaller to larger / left to right - for your lc?
Comment by funk_king 10th june 2009
Another creative and brick-bending achievement, minimum. Bravo!
Comment by geneus1 11th june 2009
It's interesting what gets attention and what doesn't. This was just a simple idea and an average execution. Furthermore, there are just so many bricks (dots) here, that it is virtually unusable. I guess it looks kinda cool. Maybe it should have been named 'An Exercise in Futility'. Heh. Thanks all for the appreciation.

@funk_king: Consider it done.
Comment by minimum 11th june 2009
It looks like ur on teh side and not in front nice work!
Comment by Dec4080 13th june 2009
Really nice!
Comment by machocr 15th june 2009
amazing work.

ps: what's up with the "Q"
Comment by jmarquez 16th june 2009
Dear Minimum.

I really like your work & your conception. (+ name, + plus concept ... +++)

This one - looks great. (to me)
But turns me on - 0.00%.
IMHO, you should (could, might, etc.) go back to the roots of your name.

(Back to the SHAPE OF THINGS -, not back to a SPECIAL EFFECTS department.)
Do you want me to laugh or cry?

Comment by prototype 24th june 2009
Haha. "No more special effects." Got it.
Comment by minimum 24th june 2009
No more special effects?!? Yeah, I'll be sure to tell that to Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay for the next Transformers movie. "Hey, you guys, could you, like, put less explosions and special effects in this? Thanks!"

Manifest and share whatever creative expression inspires you, whether it makes people laugh or cry. Why not do both and show your range. =)
Comment by geneus1 25th june 2009
Hehe. Thanks, Geneus1. I was merely agreeing with him because the alternative was getting into an argument. Although, I'm not sure if I have a "range". Even I have no idea what's coming up next. Currently I am struggling with a lowercase 's'. It is winning...so far. ;)
Comment by minimum 26th june 2009
maybe trying the "handwritten" style for an "s"?
looks easier, and maybe cooler :)
Comment by kix 26th june 2009
it' s great
Comment by nampnz 18th september 2009
I think this is really effective and unique and so detailed.
A really great fontstruction!!
Comment by ngo2graphics 16th october 2009
Can you take a look at mine pls, Pixelo, I created this on the same kinda concept not realising that you have done it before me, lol, but let me know what you think.
Comment by ngo2graphics 21st october 2009
This is definitely the best font on FontStruct, but I having some problems with the zip file, every time I download it it turns out to be corrupted. I've tried winrar and everything.
Comment by General_Jackson 16th february 2010
Wow. Awesome.

Comment by lucasjiz 10th august 2010
Of course, lucasjiz. What good is a font that's not used. Post a picture of the design when you are done, please.
Comment by minimum 10th august 2010
O_O class!
Comment by Wix (Vladislav Sergeevich) 26th august 2010
there's no archive ".ttf" into the rar file, can u help me?
Comment by mateuslm 7th september 2010
It Doesn't Even Come With The Font - You Can't Have It !?!?
Comment by DRWHOFAN1 10th september 2010
I just did a test download. The TrueType file is indeed part of the .rar file. The font has too many dots though. It takes the OS forever to render it, though. User discretion is advised.
Comment by thalamic 10th september 2010
hey thal, have you tried to update the file and retry it? the last edit date on the file is last year. i recall Rob staying that the FS mortar had been improved and works better but you have to update the file. i would try it. this is such a great font not to be able to use; it would be a travesty.
Comment by funk_king 10th september 2010
Hey sorry .. I am a learner here ...
How to use this font in word 2003 ?? Its not working in it !!!!
Comment by arr.gowtham23 1st october 2010

Comment by BenjamiinxxD 15th november 2010

Comment by nogab 29th march 2011
Wow congrats it's an awesome and perfect design :D wowow i love it 1!!
Comment by Hauser 6th may 2011
It is more than superb ! It is spectacular.
Comment by Mhnsh.t46 24th september 2011
Great font! What's involved in doing the exact font but reversed perspective so one can make words where the letters all diminish towards the centre of the word? You could even map the opposite letters to the lower case letters. Really top notch work. Thanks.
Comment by mister.zed 7th november 2011
With the flip macro, added to the fontstructor by meek well after this conceptual and technical masterpiece was created, reversing the perspective would be a fairly speedy endeavor.

Comment by minimum 12th november 2011
The new work is truly stunning...and yet the fontmortar just can’t seem to crunch it! It seems to chew on it well enough – but then spits out a corrupted file. X/
Comment by William Leverette (will.i.ૐ) 12th november 2011
@mister.zed: This was planned for a long time. Your comment forced me to go about it. Thanks.

@william: Flip worked for only the symmetrical glyphs. The rest had to be rebuilt. Still, done.
Comment by minimum 12th november 2011
Yes, too many disconnected dots. The sample is a PrintScrn of the preview sample.
Comment by minimum 12th november 2011
S & Z could have been rotated – I forgot to mention this type of symmetry earlier. But flipping the full square grid and then selectively deleting was what I meant by ‘fairly speedy’ (or, better still, building them from similar flipped glyph parts). A LOT less total dragging and dropping, for sure! :)

Screen capture is clearly the way to go (sad, because I want smooth hi-res builds of the glyphs to work with in a unified single-point perspective – done theoretically via individually glyph scaling ). But, then, I thought upgrades to the FontMortar had obviated such scenarios? I am surprised that it will generate a font file that is corrupted and supply it to fsers. Meek?
Comment by William Leverette (will.i.ૐ) 12th november 2011
when i try to open the file it says its an invalid font file. is it suppose to be only 55 bytes? i think the download link is corrupted.
Comment by rj10328 24th march 2012
Hello I had a problem with this font, I can not see it in oficce word 2007. It is a pity this very good
Comment by alma Erdosain 5th may 2012
I had the same problem with "rj10328"
Comment by tuiqiao 15th september 2012
Man is that cool. I couldn't dream of making a 3d font.
Comment by Noah F. Ross (winty5) 12th november 2012
Another gorgeous font.
