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
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
