This font was initially done as a combination of CMYK colors. Although a lot of time was spent in creating that font, the vibrancy of the letters in a mixture of those colors was a garish nightmare which was difficult to look at. Hence, it is gone.

Still there's a font here somewhere. Hence this toned-down, Not (¬) CMYK version—all of the geometry, less of the disturbia.

Every possible permutation of the above glyphs generates 9,025 kerning pairs to be tested. I've only tested 2,994 kerning pairs. Then I lost steam. Whether I got them right or not is a whole another can of worms.

@thalamic - The soothing color pallette is hypnotic.  Perfect example of the possibilities of the Patreon color option!  (And the font design isn't bad, either!)  ;^)

Geometric font using a mint colour palette. Transparency is masterfully simulated at overlapping parts. I counted seven different colours; that means you've got one layer to spare. I wouldn't bother too much with perfect kerning in FS. There are much better tools for that. This is a delightful example of the full potential of the layers feature. 10/10

Quite an eye-catching desihgn and color palette, especially a fan of the asterisk

@Goatmeal: Thank you. Even I was disturbed by the vibrancy of the CMYK+RGB color pallette. Randomly selected these muted color until they disturbed less.

@elmoyenique: Thanks. Couldn't do it without the constant inspiration supplied by you and others like you. 

@Frodo7: Thank you. I selected the three basic color and used Photoshop to multiply them to find the overlapping colors. Initially, the colors were CMY for the base colors and RGB for the overlapping colors and K for when all three colors overlapped. Actually, there are 8 layers. The 8th layer is white. It is used to hide parts of the previous letter so that the gap is even and clean between letters. You can see the effect in the sample Emloyenique posted above in how A overlaps H, A over L, and M over A. I had to do this because if two letter were overlapping, their colors should have blended. Just a hack to get around the limitations. The hack is not perfect. There should have been a white gap between O and K in Elmo's sample above. K needs a white gap stripe on the right side. But the result didn't look elegant so I only added the white stripe in letters that have a diagonal right side.

Thank you for taking a close look at the font. I appreciate it.

@tortoiseshell: Thank you. The asterisk is just the + in a reduced and rotated format. :)

Nice font, but the I looks more like a J to me when it's next to an A or M

Such satisfying work, I keep coming back to it. For some reason it doesn't appear in the gallery.
