Inspired in the "Iony Display" font by the hungarian young typographer Hai Anh Le. (WIP)


Inspired in the "Iony Display" font by the hungarian young typographer Hai Anh Le.
Alternates to improve the kern only a bit at the "a", "s" and "t" glyphs (for the "A" and "S").
Hope you like it.

Only you could mix Polish feel (like in your Zloty), Western, and 60s retro scifi in an effective modular way. Maybe spacing between letters should be increased. I think your glyphs lack of air and become a bit confusing like this. Maybe also the "O" coul be a bit less wide, but you're the boss.

Great work! I really like M/W, but I agree with AFT on spacing and the O.
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 10th march 2013
Beautiful work. You are an expert of Western fonts. I would keep the wide O, and give a narrow one as alternate. Likewise, I would make a wide T as an option. I wonder if you could use the star from the bricks palette as asterisk. The @ needs a bit of elbow grease. Great retro poster. 10/10

Beautiful fusion of styles!
Comment by four 10th march 2013
Thanks all you, pals! I must improve the central part of the I, it's a little bit too wide. Suggestions are welcomed.

Some of you make me blush more often than I can consider acceptable... The merit is yours, I'm only a learner. Thanks for your constant support and undeserved praise, maestros! And thanks too to Isaiah Garcia & architaraz & Abneurone Fluid Types & Yautja & my dear Frodo 7 & winty5 & dear will.i.ૐ & four & the great p2pnut... Things like these make FS really unforgetable! Thanks!

@will.i.ૐ: I'm a learner on FS, you know... Can you explain me your beautiful solution? (step by step, please); I'm obtuse now in front of it... How can I make your first light blue brick? And then?...
Comment by elmoyenique 13th march 2013
I like to work a lot with the centered smaller square bricks (that hang out with the centered smaller dot bricks in the master collection). I will try to describe this in words.

The first blue brick is a composite made from one of these centered smaller square bricks – specifically the second largest of the non-full square bricks. I made a 3x1 composite with this second-largest smaller square brick. Then I deleted the two outer bricks in the composite to create a solitary centered small rectangle brick.

The alternate I on the right uses the same process but with the second smallest of the smaller square bricks. They won’t quite overlap in adjacent grid spaces to create longer line segments even with 2x2 filter mode active, so I fudged the gap with a 1x2 composite of the same brick (which you can see in the blown up insert in my first image). The reasoning is that my clever solution on the left still has a slightly too thick vertical stem, but it is much closer to the rest of the design.

Let me know if my description of these steps is still confusing! Once you grasp the power of compositing with the smaller square bricks, I think you will go far indeed! :)
Comment by William Leverette (will.i.ૐ) 13th march 2013
I had made a clone, but couldn't work out a solution for the I and never thought of compositing those small centered square bricks. I will keep it in mind for future reference, thanks Will!

So groovy. 10/10 :-)

@will.i.ૐ: Totaly clear, thanks a lot!!! I take your first solution.
@four & demonics: Thanks, pals.

I kind of enjoy how most of your fonts begin with a Z.
