Details

Description:
Loosely based on the custom lettering I did for my DINOSAUR logo (http://www.thedinosaur.ca). I wanted to make an old-school compressed gothic that didn't look like it was made in fontstruct. Could be good for movie poster credits.

This is really great. I can't see a logo on the page you link to though.

Very nice font Bravo 10, I love it.

I working on a concept close to yours... Of course yours is more narrow which give nice diagonals for S per example. But I mean Like you I use the new macaronni brick for rounded shape and a kind a vector connection per example at the bottom of your "a". But I still have a lot of work on mine, proportion, etc.


I find your font very well balanced. great work looks like a vector font. Bravo encore!

@aphoria - Thanks!

@Rob - You'd think I'd be able to link to my own website. I've fixed the link!

@Michel - Thanks! I like yours as well, especially the angles on the terminals.

I love how you flesh out the character set like few do, here. The Greek alphabet is a particularly delightful and compelling addition.

@Rob: Thanks for the top pick!

@Will: Thanks! I'm always nervous about including Greek, since I don't really know if the glyphs look OK to Greek readers.
