Another masterpiece. A minor issue: the gaps of a,o,g are significantly smaller than the of the rest. 10/10

Great entry! It has your recognizable clean and elegant style. With the cap height containing some glyphs and 'cutting off' the top of others, there are possibly two fonts in this. The mix however, works wonderfully well! 10/10

Stencilicious! 10/10

Wow! Double back flip. I love it..... although the 'W' seems to have a different colour. I don't know what to suggest, as your style is sublime.

Although the style is sublime and the execution exquisite, I think there is some visual inconsistency here that is making it not seem like a whole. Specifically, the chopped-off letters look like they are larger in size (even after the chopping) and blacker than the rest. It might just be an optical illusion, but in appearance, all glyphs must look to be similar weight and height, even if they have to be metrically inconsistent. With your proven skill and mastery, I'm certain you can work on those and correct them.

Oh, and the vertical break in the S is disturbing.

Yes. Much better. Still room for improvement, though.

BTW, in my last comment, the last line was me saying how I loved certain glyphs. But it got chopped off for certain reason.

In my next reincarnation, I want to have your ability to visualize.

Carry on.

@beate: Your relentless pursuit and attainment of typographic excellence deserves applause and accolades. With such a subtle eye and fine ability to highlight what makes each glyph unique in your sets while maintaining their synergy and coherence, it makes sense that you work almost exclusively at high resolution. A designer such as yourself flourishes with maximum control over the outlines!

Yet you leverage other creative constraints by fontstructing, for example the limited selection of oblique angles on tap. You use this as a point of departure and return. This leads to exciting characters like db Smoothie’s K.

How curvaceous and straight lines can meet up and dance beautifully to create glyphs together is a hallmark of your typography. This quality is distinctly fontstruct.

Let’s revive the Focus on Fontstructors feature and learn more about beate/oxygene! Learning more about your creative process would enrich us all.

This is one of the most unique stencil-style typefaces I've ever seen. It has that seventies fat-face display lettering revival feel to it.
