Please tell me what you think of this, rather than bashing everything with half a star, as you like to rigorously do with all our / my lovingly created FontStructures…

Authentic eye-catching glyphs, Maestra! Very unexpected option, I especially like the mobility offered by the white spaces between letters.

Comment by elmoyenique Mon, 20th june

Alternating upper and lower case gives lots of scope to play with postive and negative space. I love how you have layered it to make a near abstract compostion in the yellow sample.

Comment by four Mon, 20th june

Your knack for what the characters should look like is scary good. I'm always, always impressed. 

Comment by thalamic Tue, 21st june

Lovely futuristic typeface, the inverted version of the letters works really well, it's an ingenious solution. As always your fonts are top for me.

@ Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff), @ thalamic, @ four, @ maestroElmo
Thank you very much, dear ones. I'll gladly spend a night or two with Fontstruct for you ; )

Alternating black and white characters, and playing with "white" space; it's a great idea. These letters look trendy. Honestly, I better say no more, as I don't fully understand your design. 10/10

Congrats for winning beate, well deserved!! _O_

Comment by Sed4tives Thu, 21st july

This font proves how versatile and capable you are as a type designer. Your works usually only leave me speechless, but this time the cold, brutalist style is what warms my heart. That, and the very fitting inverted lowercase. Just wow. Well deserved winner. 

Comment by Neoqueto Sat, 23rd july

Is it just me or does the X look a bit lower than the rest of the letters?

Comment by Bryndan W Meyerholt (BWM) Sat, 23rd july

Yup, seems the glyph is one row lower than the others!

Comment by Sed4tives Sat, 23rd july

@dear beate: I think you could add a little black rectangle on the top side of the w to even it out with the rest, IMHO.

@elmo oups! I fixed.

@BWM Thanks for the hint, the x has moved down one line ; ) 

@Sed4tives and @Neoqueto Thank you for your sincere comments. I am glad that you like this fontstruction.
