Details

Description:
a 2x2 brick size font.///////////////// I had fun playing around with this font, espacialy small details which are hardly noticeable: diatrics, odd lenght angles, compromise the design itself of a glyph with kerning and aspect ration with the rest of the alphabet. well fell free to spot me anything non-harmonized. ////////////////////////////////////// 2x2 brick size VS 67.5° angles... I create bricks which can overlape the regular one on half of it... so it offer the possibilities to make odd size angle glyphs like v y, etc. Dont' know if somebody else did it before there is so many fonts now in FS, so it's hard top follow everything.

Awesome.

And the awesomeness of the fontstruction would have been lost if not for the sample, which is why they are so important.

This is a great example of how important a good sample can really make a font. In the view pane it looks like any other font, but in the sample it comes to life. A really professional finish. Well done. 10/10

Great work. Djnippa is right about how the sample really makes a huge difference. Great attention to the details.

@tylo, @DjNippa, @Thalamic thanks I appreciate it. Your all true about the viewer... but the inverse is true as well some fonts in the viewer come out very nice but the font is weaker when it's installed and used in other software.

@Laynecom, @elmoyenique, @aphoria, thanks for your kind word. There is so many great fonts now in FS, I think sometime we have to pay attention to small detail to be different.

Congratulations! You've produced a wonderful piece of work, and the little details do help it to stand out.

A few suggestions:

1. It appears that you omitted the ink traps on both g and h.

2. The slashed o could be improved by extending the diagonal above and below the bowl, just as you did with its uppercase counterpart.

3. Maybe it's only the viewer, but there seems to be a spacing problem with the circumflex I and i, and also the umlaut I and i. Moving all four of them slightly to the right should solve this issue.

Again, nice job!

very well done. effective both for display and text. although you took some chances and your stylistic choices paid off, this is still a very nice conservative and clean font. the bottom of the sample made me wonder, could there be a Bosanova version with the uc using angles on the terminal and corners? now that would be a funky beat :)

@fontcollector, Thank a lot for your word and spotting me some correction. I did ghî

ï in a grid like in FS is always a challenge with the kerning. Here I wanted to keep the same kerning as the "i" because this glyph is usualy use in words which it have enough room the expend itself (Maïs old word for corn).

Slash o... I had a hard time with the diagonal... for the slash O was enough high so the diagonal fit. But for the lowercase which is a odd size I have'nt been able yet to make the samething.. but I'll work on it later

@funk_king well... it's very conservative I admit :) but we go with our skills... I admire you, you explore unusual path and create great fonts, I'm a fan of your work ;)
Before completing this font I try many "terminals" but ended with a classic... I just open the clone button so if you feel for it to explore and bring it somewhere else, your more than welcome :)

@3moDuDe thank you. Probably not the first one to find these 2 overlaping brick for this angle, but took me long to find it.

thanks, upixel. that's some brilliant fontstructing you have done. i probably would have never considered going from 1:1 to 2:2 filters to achieve what you have done. i looked at the file and was amazed. don't think i can do what i had in mind after trying to delete some bricks in the composite and creating a mess :( a fascinating work - even more so after seeing what's going on behind the scenes :)

Thank you meek, I appreciate this pink honnor.

Your response concerning the kerning of the i with diacritics caused me to look at this issue again, and you were absolutely right. Most of my fonts are monospaced, so I'm rarely faced with this problem. But my next font is going to be proportional, and your comment persuaded me to redesign all versions of the I and i. So now I owe you a debt of gratitude for bringing my attention to this matter. :)

And congrats on the Top Pick!
