Description:
"A letter within a letter" concept, where small ones are inside of capitals and vice-versa (mostly), giving it an unintentional outline effect. Thanks.

I've seen some works here, including awesome Infix, and I think everybody should do "smth inside of a letter" concept, it'll certainly improve your fontstruct level.
The letters inside mostly have the same height.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Enjoy!

Simple but very nice! 10/10

Cool. It reminds me of my Infix. How cool that two so different fonts can come out of the same basic concept. 10/10

but, I dont know if Fi and Fl ligatures are a god idea...

Thanks everybody for commenting and for the TP!

@cablecomputer:
Yeap, that was the idea (but accents with some punctuation gave me a hard time)

@CMunk:
Your Infix is really cool, thanks for sharing it!

@truth14ful:
I've changed them now a bit by connecting some ends, hope this gives them a bit more realistic shape.

@CMunk: If somebody ask me, I like veeery much your font "Infix" (10/10 http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/252718), but I like "Venus" font too!
Can both universes to live togethers? I hope it's possible.

But the St Valentine day touch of Venus (we're straight on the period) has also its charm, even if globally i'm a bit less in phase with it. Maybe with "these" particular shapes i think i would prefer the same glyph inside the big shape, i mean Uc with Uc and Lc with Lc inside. But it's only my personal taste. You're the captain on the boat of your work.
Also, have you tried other possibilities for the inside "t" ?, cause i feel it a bit out of the picture. I also can imagine how difficult it must be to let a cool t appear in white inside the big shape...

@elmoyenique:
I hope too! Thanks for your support )

@neurone error:
Yeap, I remembered St.Valentine's coming soon, and it was actually at the end of finishing this font when I realized that "v" looked like heart. Махаббат means love in kazakh, so for cyrillic I also had to change the look of an "m".

I had thoughts of turning this into a family with some straight versions, with Lc in Lc, Uc in Uc etc, but I'll see about that...

About "t". The published version actually just came up at the end. Before, it was the middle one at this picture that I was planning, and the right one looks ok by itself, but it's too bold alongside others:

Concerning the "t", i really prefer the one at the left, the right one you finally chose is too wide for me with other letters, and it is not fitting well with the general style; more soft and rounded. Same remark for its white reverse form, it would be much better if the small white UC was shaped as the one at the left on your sample, in my opinion.


Abneurone Fluid Types
Abneurone Fluid Types Fri, 10th February, 2012

Oh, it's not exactly the one at the right you finally chose but it's also too wide, i still prefer the one at the left of your sample, much more fitting with the global style in my opinion.


cablecomputer
cablecomputer Fri, 10th February, 2012

May I give an opinion? The left one is OK, but me myself prefer the right.


architaraz
architaraz Fri, 10th February, 2012

I think I also like the left one, I didn't mention about it cause the idea for it came when i was redrawing those other two. So, already changed it, but anyways, alternatives are available, they're next to "oe" character. Thx.


cablecomputer
cablecomputer Fri, 10th February, 2012

Actually, I like the original version of "T" too.

Nice work. I look forward to seeing it develop into a family (UC inside UC etc). 10/10

Only.. The P,R & Q are a bit strange. It's like they want to escape from there darker shell.

This font was used for the logo of ball pool project called BABABA. Info and video can be found here: www.bababa.nl.

Thanks, CC, but I've known about this project since April, they contacted me back then about usage, just forgot to mention it :)
Also, a corporation from Japan asked permission to include this font alongside Dalmat, Rap My Hip-Hop, Arro in their book for designers, artists etc (I'm sure other FS users also received this message), but I'll upload samples later, when I receive the book.
