This is great, Bravo!
you have definitely succeeded in creating a contemporary sci-fi typeface. this baby is cool and sleek. and love how some glyphs seem to defy space and break out of your established dimensions set by the grid. glad to be a source of inspiration as you have definitely done the same for me many times.
Prog really rocks! Mind you, I needed a session of Intergalactic Yoga after reading your Description :) 10/10
I took the liberty of trying out a few T alternatives ... you have probably already discounted them, but just in case ...
Thanks for the feedback Funk King and PhaistosDisk.
@p2pnut: Great T variations. I think I'm tracking in a similar vein. In FontLab, I'm able to create the T variation that I really want see here. It is essentially your third variation except with the consistent split down the middle. I've also applied the same technique to the Y. What do you think?
Great work afrojet. I like your new T.
May I offer a few suggestions for the numerals?
@aphoria: I'm instantly in love with that 3! I may have to make an alternate E with the same treatment. The 6 & 9 alternatives I like but am not totally convinced on. I think I could be persuaded though. For your consideration: three different solutions for the 6 & 9. The left is Aphoria's suggestion the middle is Aphoria's suggestion with a bit more height added and the left is the current version. Anyone else care to weigh in with their opinion?
All three work. It's only a stylistic choice. Aesthetically, I find the third set the most pleasing, but the 3D effect is readily visible in the first two.
Two T alternatives possibly worth exploring: 1.Your current M without the outer stems. 2.Paste M and A into a single glyph, erase everything except the right M and left A stems (plus connected top horizontal crossbars) for a double stem T. May work for the Y too. (or not, most likely). Just an idea for you to try (or discard) at your discretion.
Not that it was in question, but might I suggest a reversal of the diagonal for the Z...meaning the right vertical stem dips down, then diagonal sea-saw up (left up, right down), before dipping down to form the left vertical stem. In other words, like an S, but with the vertical bars transposed.
Super set, in any case. Especially nice are the vertical bar diagonal terminals. Nice sample, as usual.
@afrojet I'm glad you like the 3. It would work well with the E too...don't know why I missed that.
I considered raising/lowering the middle of the 6 and 9, but opted for consistency. I now see I should have followed my gut. Your updates to my 6 and 9 and better.
Your T is great - as is the Y ... can you achieve that in FS?
Thanks for all the continued suggestions folks. Very helpful and much appreciated.
@minimum: it took me a minute to visualize what you were getting at but I understand it now and will give it a try.
@p2pnut: I don't think at this scale it's possible to achieve the desired result for the T and the Y. Perhaps if I went higher res I could do it. But I think what I'll do is fix those letters in FontLab. There's also a few other tweaks I want to make that fall outside the realm of FontStruct. If/when I do that, I'll post the new file up here in the comments for download.
Experimenting with adding an ultra-light weight to the Prog family in addition to some non-stencil versions.
There must be something in the air ... I'm working on a 'skinny' design at the moment :)
Meek, somebody, top pick this! An amazing amount of collaboration in such a short span of days...
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Prog” is now a Top Pick.
A beautifully executed modular blackletter with extraordinary filigree around the caps. Usable despite the small character set.
