Details

Description:
If you want the FULL SET including the European Set then send $16 via PayPal to djnippa@hotmail.com, stating which font you require.
Roughly based on my NCD Black Square fontstruct, but massively scaled up to accommodate the internal lines.

I found that the small caps version works nicely when used in odd combinations with the lower case. Particularly the upper 'R'.
Most difficult characters were the F/f. I wasn't too keen on the open space they made, so I've added more than a few alternatives. The 'r', 'J' & 'L' gave me a similar visual dilemma.
I have also completed a version with Normal Caps. Which will be displayed soon.

ALTERNATIVES
============
# = d (stem facing other way)
^ = e (extended arm)
< = F (rounded top edges)
* = f (over lapping next character)
\ = f (alternative with extended tale)
] = g (old style)
% = g (old style with ear)
[ = g (extended foot)
‡ = I (alternative)
} = J (alternative)
> = M (Monospaced)
{ = r (shortened arm)
` = S (alternative)
§ = W (alternative)
~ = y (extended foot)

Great set. I like the second alternate g.

Thanks Aphoria, I agree, but in practice it didn't quite suit everything it went with.
I've even got a version of it with a ear. I may do a serif version, in which I think it will work better.
Here are a few variations on the 'g'

Oooh, nice samples, Mr. DJ. Cool font too. The fine break lines really sets the letters off well. :)

Wow what a line-up Aphoria, Empar7, Afrojet, thalamic, SquarePeg, it's like a who's who of the top designers in the great game of Fontstruct. As Pele, Ronaldo, Best, Charlton, Maradonna are too football, you guys are to Fontstruct.
Many thanks guys.
Very much appreciated.

Very clean set and sample. I definitely like the old style g with the ear.

It's in there as the '%' key.
It does makes the font more distinctive, but it wasn't as versatile. Having the option to make your own choice keeps everyone happy :-)

It's no mean feat to create such a fat face that works so brilliantly with no misshapen glyphs. I'd vote it ten but I can't.

@will.i.ૐ. Nice suggestion, and I have a tendency to agree, but the client had already declined that idea. I did 72 variations altogether, of which one was the alternative 'i' you propose. You certainly have a good eye for detail. Thanks.
