Look at this crazy character: ﷺ
1)It's an Arabic ligature thing Unicode stuck in Unicode 2)Where and why did you even find that LOL
@Umbreom126: I know. I found it just by randomly browsing the web :P
Here's a magnified view:
Too many bugs (e.g. 'R') and dupes for me (lower case esp.). Perhaps you can improve a bit the Latin chrs ? (as I don't know about the accuracy in the Cyrillic ones). Interesting bilingual font anyway.
@dpla: Thanks, but its pretty hard to work in such a small grid. (and yes, the cyrillic ones are horrible)
You're so right, it's a very tough job to put everything legibily in such a small grid. But a lot of satisfaction afterwards, believe me (though it's even funnier as 3x4 - hundreds of unique glyphs, even plenty of diacritics, even a lot of Cyrillics and special Unicode if you overcome the lowercase dilemma). I hope I was not too harsh in my previous C&C… it's my - bad - way of encouraging you. I know you can improve your micro font a lot ; e.g. see the other FontStructions from the list here :
Ok. I'll be sure to update this.
Thank you. Though there's a lot of 3x3 'competitors', and since your 5Mikroskop got the size record (on FS at least) as a - partial - 2x3 identifiable font (1x2, 2x1 and 1x1 pixel can't), perhaps it is now another task for you to complete (it) too ? (Gr8t US/GB/ZZ synt@X, donT U' LOL!)
1 duplicate (M=R)
And next duplicate: V=Y
Yes, Groszak, I think there are at least two approaches in this field of design :
• Similar chrs (unsafe, yet more legible) ;
• Unique chrs (safe, yet less legible).
E.g. the famous 'I' / 'l' / '1' / '|' ambiguity, that is quickly taken into profit pertaing to 3x3 grids :
… This glyph would stand for all of these chrs, acceptably…
(I stop here this long topic…)
Look at this crazy text: ⁂‽3̨ŢG̨f̨ųs̨r̨ąw̨b̨?̨2̨
@Groszak: Cool‽?̨ ŢhąŢs̨ ąw̨3̨s̨øme!
if you use windows, use character map and select character U+0328 (combining ogonek) in lucida sans unicode. if you put this after letter, then will put into letter. Use other combinings too
and find other crazys
A very even, handwritten flow despite the inherent rigidity of its forms. The sprightly, angular effect is reminiscent of the lively lettering found in mid-century advertising.
