the DOT experience continues... It gives you an unexpected kind of FREEDOM creating lines with dots. This time i doubled the resolution by using 2x2 circles. Finally your eye can help making curves of any size look complete and entirely smooth! Oh my god... I see more possibilities now than ever before!! That technique of "dotting", as i call it, will make my brain bust, i guess. :P May the force be with me!

i felt the urgent need to share this!
i know it's not finished.
in fact, numerals from 6-9 are missing, but i promise this will grow a little bit more in glyph amount.

It's not best for writing in uppercase only, but l/c and words, starting with a capital will look pleasing, i guess...

Again you're driving it to the next level!

My only suggestion: The "M, W, w" are a bit too narrow on the left.

LOVE the J, K, Q and the R! But the V, W, v, and w look, erm, backwards? The strokes look reversed...

Very lovely, though!
Comment by Karolina Lach (sliveress) 8th March 2009
Fantastic. I'm stoked on that lower case 'y'. Keep building it out.
Comment by afrojet 8th March 2009
i didn't like most of the dotted fonts so far but this one plays in a league of its own. wonderfully crafted. the proportions all perfectly ballanced. you really should think about recreating this one in a "real" vector based program. the forms got so much potential.

Comment by Axel Leyer 9th March 2009
this is so awesome!
Comment by hellotheresa 9th March 2009
This is verry, verry fine. Nice work!
Comment by beate 10th March 2009
thanks for your kind words, everyone.
They are very appreciated.
I flipped those "V"s and "W"s, they fit better know, but they are also more usual. good decision after all...

All numerals added plus some symbols. there will be some more soon as well, like e.g. some notes, a four leaf clover, a horseshoe and other casino-ish stuff :) cheers

Comment by wolfkrim 11th March 2009
thanks again :)
it's really satisfying to read all this after putting soooooooo much effort in this one.
I think it's my most beloved "child" so far and i swear every DOT is done with much thoughts and love. That's why i don't want to set in back on "private", while i'm working on it :)

This is totally UNDER FONTSTRUCTION at the moment, so if you want the real DOSE, try to be patient for let's say 1-2 days!

I'm guessing this took me about 60 hours yet, and it think i'll spend another 15-20. stay tuned guys...
Comment by kix 11th March 2009
It's time well spent and it really shows in the result.

I keep coming back just to look at the letters...they're so beautiful.
Comment by aphoria 11th March 2009
very nice dude. love your specials, especially the music notes and lucky charms :) very classic yet innovative. makes me think of broadway, vegas, even some mississippi river gambling boats... keep on chugging dude :)
Comment by funk_king 12th March 2009
je suis contente, de t’avoir pu inspirer pour les petits point! Continues ainsi!

Comment by beate 12th March 2009
I think this is your best font yet. How can it be flashy and restrained at the same time? I don't know, but it is.
Comment by intaglio 13th March 2009
Ok. I think it's done!
Everything is where it belongs, but i put some special glyphs into it as well:

asterisk/little star = "*"
four leaf clover = "#"
horseshoe = "%"
(note)clef = "@"
single notes = "(" and ")"
double notes = "[" and "]"
Comment by kix 13th March 2009
The treble clef? Are you kidding me? Curvilcious wow, wow, wow.
Comment by thalamic 13th March 2009
Comment by kix 13th March 2009
Silky smooth clef! The extended chars look great as well.
Comment by Stelios Constantinides (emepar7) 13th March 2009
Damn, you just keep taking to another level.

Great additions.

Hey kix!

I can't believe it's been over a month since I was going to comment. First of all, I think this is absolutely brilliant. Very clean. Love your sample too.

Two observations:
1. I'm surprised no one has mentioned it yet, but the A looks like it needs to be flipped, the same way as the V and W were transposed. In order to maintain consistency, the right side of the A would need the thicker stem to match the diagonal strokes of the V and W.

2. I know this is an experimentation with 2x2 circles and this next comment does not really help you out now since it comes after the fact, but here goes. Using quarter circle bricks do open up more possibilities for brick placement. But if you start with a filter setting of 2:2, then you can achieve the same thing with only one full circle brick. Since everything becomes double scale, the single circle brick would automatically cover a 2x2 grid space. In terms of file efficiency, it cuts down the number of bricks used by 75%, which eases the save capacity for larger fontsructions. For maximum dot placement, you can try using the four quarter circles in 2:2 scale, which creates circles that cover a 4x4 grid area.

Hit me back if I'm not making sense...
Comment by geneus1 19th April 2009
That totally makes sense!
thanks for your thoughts :)

After all i'm lucky this is downloadable. I'll keep that scaling in mind if i'm starting my next dot font.

And you're right about "A", too. I changed "V" and "W" and simply forgot to do the same to "A", hehe. Sometimes i'm a little lazy as well, especially at the moment...

I think that will change soon.
it sounds like the discussion about flipping, moving, rotating of selected bricks, will bring some interesting changes.

I'm totally looking forward to that!
Comment by kix 20th April 2009
I don't know...I think the A looks ok as it is.
Comment by aphoria 21st April 2009
I thought about that, but the new "A" just seems more familiar. I left a copy of the old one on "§".

and thanks
Comment by kix 21st April 2009
Don't worry, I still love it. :)
Comment by aphoria 22nd April 2009
Is it still possible to download this font? Doesn't seem to work...
Comment by kladdkaka2000 14th May 2009
I'm sorry, but this seems to be that way since FS was in transit :(
the only change i did to this was flipping the "A"...

Comment by kix 14th May 2009
it seems, all my fonts are downloadable again :)
Comment by kix 1st June 2009
nice font
Comment by esengue 24th July 2011
Brilliant !
Comment by Mhnsh.t46 24th September 2011
Perfect font! What about a filled version?
Comment by Valerio Francesco Borghi (valeriofrancesco) 3rd December 2011
J'aimerais tellement être capable de faire d'aussi belles choses, plutôt que de m'obstiner à continuer toujours la même (Anguleux). Une police identique avec des lettres pleines serait parfaite !
Comment by Machinchouette 16th April 2012

Comment by sherra11 1st December 2012
@sherra11: To install a new font -

1) Download it from here (I suggest you download it to the Desktop)
2) Open the .zip folder and Copy the .ttf file to the Desktop.
3) Open C:/Windows/Fonts and drag the .ttf file from the Desktop to this folder.

The font is now installed and will be available for use in any of your programs.

Good luck with the mirror :)
