well, this is something new here!
I like! I voted 8.6 because I've got a fetish for legibility. (Boring, I know.)
This is quite awesome! The consistency of the inconsistency really makes it stand out. Although every character is great, the way you made s and 5, z and 2 different from each other is brilliant. The only thing you might want to consider revising--and i am being very nit-picky at this point--is not to make p and q mirror images of each other. First Jettison Stencil and now this. Impressive. Another 10. :)
@intaglio: No worries, I can't fault you for wanting something you can actually read ;-)
@thalamic: Thanks. I'm glad you think the s and 5, z and 2 differentiation was successful. That was/is tough. If you look close at the 'p' and 'q' you'll notice some subtle differences. I wasn't worried about the horizontal white space mirroring each other for those two characters as they rarely appear close together in a word. And in the case of a word like 'pique' (as seen below) I like how the horizontal space between the steam and the dot of the 'i' jumps up a notch above the plane created by the horizontal white space in the 'p' and 'q'.
first of all.
this rocks in several ways!!!
but... i got a deep graffiti background... and i'm able to read even the most complex "porno-styles".
but i don't get the sense of that sample :)
I'm realllly digging this, since I normally dwell on the edge of legibility. I would love to see an uppercase. I've got a deep graffiti background too, but I'd also like to see some complex "porno-style" from kix! :)
just a quick post of an old one.
especially to satisfy the one and only geneus1
Great, great urban font.
I'm not really into street culture, but this set spurts trendiness from each gliph.
Great font...so fat and so dinamic... Yeah it rocks
Welldone another time...
HEAVY! and i feel your story, i broke my collar bone a year back trying to shoulder tackle the earth going OTB.
wow/// this is harkor!!! reminds me of some of the imagery freetekno soundsystems use/// http://www.mirekulous.net/probono/septik-nexus/
probably to coolest graffiti style font on fontstruct so far. respect! i'd buy a t-shirt with that sample printed on it right away...
guess i should go crash my bike more often too...;)
btw: i just stumbled upon this by reading the focus on fontstructors article on fontfeed! congrats, well-deserved fame!:)
Thanks shasta. Big ups to the FontShopFeedStruct crew for doing those interviews. The latest interview with Em42 is terrific - really shows the white hot power of Fontstruct.
I had a good ride the other day (crash free!). At the end of the ride I had one of those mud stripes running up my t-shirt from ass to neck. Totally gave me inspiration for a Hydroplane t-shirt, where, on the back of the shirt, the letters would waterfall (like in the sample above) from the neckline to the bottom of the shirt. I think the visual effect would be not unlike a tire tread riding straight down the back of the shirt. Of course the t-shirt would be printed black on black.
EXCELLENT AND DEMENTED !
i am a discovery font freak
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
