I wish I could cheat in FS like I can in InDesign.
i dig it.
Good to have you back Intaglio. You say you're also working with another software than FS; are you publishing theses works somewhere? Maybe it should not appear clearly when seeing my work, but since my debut 2 years ago in typography, you were one of the very very few whose work "really" inspired me to the core. To be exhaustive, i could add CMunk, Nazlfrag, Neoqueto, maybe our regretted Funk King and TomoAlien for some aspects of their work and that's almost all.
Welcome back, intaglio! I love this one. Not sure about z. But 25/10 nevertheless! :)
How about these? I think the x may be better than your current one. Well, marginally :)
Thanks, guys. neurone: For the past year or so I've been planning ideas in InDesign first. It's a quick way to chuck ideas together, using a grid and shapes that mimic the fontstruct bricks. Most of them haven't made it as far as fontstruct, because they repeat old tropes or just aren't interesting or successful.
This one isn't particularly interesting either, but I haven't done anything in fontstruct for such a long time I was pining for it.
I cheated in InDesign (not intentionally!) by using "illegal" shapes, forgetting (conveniently?) that you can't do certain things -- "squishing" combined with composites -- in a 2x2 scheme. So the Indesign plan looks nicer than the finished result in fontstruct, where I've resorted to some pretty inelegant solutions.
And speaking of solutions, thank you demonics for your very nice suggestions for the x and s. I shall incorporate those.
Great to see you around again tag :)
Another good design as well. 10/10
@intaglio You're welcome.
I like it! Could use a few more symbols though.
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
