Holy shit! That´s a really nice concept.

aphoria Thu, 4th June, 2009

Wow. It almost makes me dizzy. Great stuff!

afrojet Thu, 4th June, 2009

One of the nice things about any Fontstruction is that it's very transparent to the community of users the kind of work that went into making it. You can't hide behind PS filters, stock art, or other tricky shortcuts. It makes looking at a font like this so much richer. I can see quickly the knuckle-grinding work (and thought) that went into this one. Nice job.

minimum Thu, 4th June, 2009

Thank you for the nice words, everyone. I am grateful to all of you (and everyone else) for your (and their) own fontsuctions because they make me learn. Creativity is boundless here. It's awesome to see. :D

@afrojet: This was a surprisingly simple font to do. There I was waiting for someone to get dressed and ready, looking at a wall in sharp perspective with circular decorative pieces hung on it...and my mind wandered. I had the font complete in my head before my waiting was over. The hard part was done. Next it was just a matter of getting 6x10 matrix of dots live, and a simple copy/paste the dot-block on each letter and deleting the dots not needed. Doing it did not take more than 45 minutes, nor should it have because it is basically just a 6x10 dot-matrix font. Thank you.

Mind blowing. Great for logos.

SquarePeg Sat, 6th June, 2009

Whoa! is right! Spectacular, minimum.

emepar7 Sun, 7th June, 2009

Every now and then I come across a font that makes me jealous...this one of them :)

nemoorange Tue, 9th June, 2009

Brilliant!! Using the dot matrix is pretty darn clever, and opens the door for other more complex ideas.

funk_king Wed, 10th June, 2009

great work. maybe you can do mirror-image version - where it goes from smaller to larger / left to right - for your lc?

geneus1 Thu, 11th June, 2009

Another creative and brick-bending achievement, minimum. Bravo!

minimum Thu, 11th June, 2009

It's interesting what gets attention and what doesn't. This was just a simple idea and an average execution. Furthermore, there are just so many bricks (dots) here, that it is virtually unusable. I guess it looks kinda cool. Maybe it should have been named 'An Exercise in Futility'. Heh. Thanks all for the appreciation.

@funk_king: Consider it done.

Dec4080 Sat, 13th June, 2009

It looks like ur on teh side and not in front nice work!

machocr Mon, 15th June, 2009

Really nice!

jmarquez Tue, 16th June, 2009

amazing work.

ps: what's up with the "Q"

prototype Wed, 24th June, 2009

Dear Minimum.

I really like your work & your conception. (+ name, + plus concept ... +++)

This one - looks great. (to me)
But turns me on - 0.00%.
IMHO, you should (could, might, etc.) go back to the roots of your name.

(Back to the SHAPE OF THINGS -, not back to a SPECIAL EFFECTS department.)
Do you want me to laugh or cry?

minimum Wed, 24th June, 2009

Haha. "No more special effects." Got it.

geneus1 Thu, 25th June, 2009

No more special effects?!? Yeah, I'll be sure to tell that to Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay for the next Transformers movie. "Hey, you guys, could you, like, put less explosions and special effects in this? Thanks!"

Manifest and share whatever creative expression inspires you, whether it makes people laugh or cry. Why not do both and show your range. =)

minimum Fri, 26th June, 2009

Hehe. Thanks, Geneus1. I was merely agreeing with him because the alternative was getting into an argument. Although, I'm not sure if I have a "range". Even I have no idea what's coming up next. Currently I am struggling with a lowercase 's'. It is far. ;)

kix Fri, 26th June, 2009

maybe trying the "handwritten" style for an "s"?
looks easier, and maybe cooler :)

nampnz Fri, 18th September, 2009

it' s great

ngo2graphics Fri, 16th October, 2009

I think this is really effective and unique and so detailed.
A really great fontstruction!!

ngo2graphics Wed, 21st October, 2009

Can you take a look at mine pls, Pixelo, I created this on the same kinda concept not realising that you have done it before me, lol, but let me know what you think.

General_Jackson Tue, 16th February, 2010

This is definitely the best font on FontStruct, but I having some problems with the zip file, every time I download it it turns out to be corrupted. I've tried winrar and everything.

+NightWalker Mon, 26th July, 2010

Wow. Awesome.

lucasjiz Tue, 10th August, 2010

hey man, this is amazing! thanks for sharing. May i use this? on designs? i just want to ask for your permission. THanks

minimum Tue, 10th August, 2010

Of course, lucasjiz. What good is a font that's not used. Post a picture of the design when you are done, please.

O_O class!

mateuslm Tue, 7th September, 2010

there's no archive ".ttf" into the rar file, can u help me?

DRWHOFAN1 Fri, 10th September, 2010

It Doesn't Even Come With The Font - You Can't Have It !?!?

thalamic Fri, 10th September, 2010

I just did a test download. The TrueType file is indeed part of the .rar file. The font has too many dots though. It takes the OS forever to render it, though. User discretion is advised.

funk_king Fri, 10th September, 2010

hey thal, have you tried to update the file and retry it? the last edit date on the file is last year. i recall Rob staying that the FS mortar had been improved and works better but you have to update the file. i would try it. this is such a great font not to be able to use; it would be a travesty.

arr.gowtham23 Fri, 1st October, 2010

Hey sorry .. I am a learner here ...
How to use this font in word 2003 ?? Its not working in it !!!!

BenjamiinxxD Mon, 15th November, 2010

looks mad but i agree with the other guy way too many dots

arseniiv Thu, 6th January, 2011

You've created absolutely exceptional font!! Wow!

nogab Tue, 29th March, 2011


Hauser Fri, 6th May, 2011

Wow congrats it's an awesome and perfect design :D wowow i love it 1!!

Mhnsh.t46 Sat, 24th September, 2011

It is more than superb ! It is spectacular.

mister.zed Mon, 7th November, 2011

Great font! What's involved in doing the exact font but reversed perspective so one can make words where the letters all diminish towards the centre of the word? You could even map the opposite letters to the lower case letters. Really top notch work. Thanks.

will.i.ૐ Mon, 7th November, 2011

With the flip macro, added to the fontstructor by meek well after this conceptual and technical masterpiece was created, reversing the perspective would be a fairly speedy endeavor.

minimum Sat, 12th November, 2011

will.i.ૐ Sat, 12th November, 2011

The new work is truly stunning...and yet the fontmortar just can’t seem to crunch it! It seems to chew on it well enough – but then spits out a corrupted file. X/

minimum Sat, 12th November, 2011

@mister.zed: This was planned for a long time. Your comment forced me to go about it. Thanks.

@william: Flip worked for only the symmetrical glyphs. The rest had to be rebuilt. Still, done.

minimum Sat, 12th November, 2011

Yes, too many disconnected dots. The sample is a PrintScrn of the preview sample.

will.i.ૐ Sat, 12th November, 2011

S & Z could have been rotated – I forgot to mention this type of symmetry earlier. But flipping the full square grid and then selectively deleting was what I meant by ‘fairly speedy’ (or, better still, building them from similar flipped glyph parts). A LOT less total dragging and dropping, for sure! :)

Screen capture is clearly the way to go (sad, because I want smooth hi-res builds of the glyphs to work with in a unified single-point perspective – done theoretically via individually glyph scaling ). But, then, I thought upgrades to the FontMortar had obviated such scenarios? I am surprised that it will generate a font file that is corrupted and supply it to fsers. Meek?

rj10328 Sat, 24th March, 2012

when i try to open the file it says its an invalid font file. is it suppose to be only 55 bytes? i think the download link is corrupted.

Hello I had a problem with this font, I can not see it in oficce word 2007. It is a pity this very good

tuiqiao Sat, 15th September, 2012

I had the same problem with "rj10328"

winty5 Mon, 12th November, 2012

Man is that cool. I couldn't dream of making a 3d font.

SymbioticDesign Tue, 10th June, 2014

Another gorgeous font.

dodirios Sun, 22nd February, 11:18 PM

It's an amazing font. So many thanks!!
