I've never seen before overlapping "semitransparent" letters. In a bold move you've broke established old rules, and expanded the horizons of typespace. Is it the beginning of a new avant-garde? 10/10

Thank you, kind sirs. I don't need to tell you guys how awesome FontStruct is. You get an idea, you go do it. Almost like instant feedback.

@ray: I know the rainbow was a 70s throwback, I just wanted to show how different color would interact with each other to form new colors.

@mr.baggins: It's fake transparency. :-)

@NCD: minimum finally does a usable font. hell must've frozen over. ;-)

@ghurl: Thank you. I'm not sure what your question is exactly.

@cayo: This is one of those throw-away fonts, shared just because. I'm not sure what utility it may provide. Thanks for liking it.

Smashing idea. I think the shapes stand alone even when not overlapped. I really dig the negative space created when you set words. Lots of different shapes to be had depending on the letter combinations. Looks fantastic in simple B&W too.

Love the overlapping with the AX combo.

could be called shadow and light. seems so simple, yet it is so much more. and very contemporary. quite wonderful.

Thanks, afrojet. The negative shapes is all this fontstruction is about. It is clearly a work-in-process. Lots of problems with the letters, especially in the overall consistency of glyph optical widths, stem thickness, etc. I rushed it out because I couldn't wait to share it. Maybe I'm not such a perfectionist after all. :-)

Thanks, funkking. Overlap is not a very good name, I agree. Too literal. Maybe I should learn from JoyDivision/NewOrder/Electronic and name it something esoteric. Shadow and Light is very becoming.

I'm consistently impressed by your ability to take the fontstructor to new experimental levels, Ata. Inspiring and thought provoking.

@larrizajoy: Download the font, put it into MS Word or your word processor of choice and change font color.

This is an awesome font. Must've taken a lot of work.
