So that's how I could have done this! Well thought out, Em! Great functionality. Large character set. But I would have gone nuts stacking 192 characters.

Gene, thanks!
I just noticed the LegoManiax font you just shared (check my comment), and it's interesting to notice how we tried to achieve the same result with a different approach.

In my case there no brick stacking, only some brick overlapping that is possible when using a doubled brick size.

Good stuff. The blue and gray sample reminds me of those sheets of candy cake letters that one can buy in the bakery aisle at the local supermarket.

I wish I had some Lego left to rebuild this awesome font and to take pictures of it.

Thanks for your comments!
I'm glad this set has been so well-received: it required some work to complete the four sets dealing with all those LEGO brick studs.

@Afrojet and SquarePegs: I tried to stick to the standard LEGO colors at the beginning, but then I preferred using different hues to make the sample look more typographic and less toyish.

@Axel and Saberrider: as I said elsewhere, I suspected I was not the only one in the FontStruct community that played a lot with LEGO bricks during childhood. :)

Thanks Thalamic, you are too kind!

BTW, as concerning a discussion we had somewhere else: did you notice that the 1-raters stroke here as well? ...and three times in a row! :)

I noticed, I noticed! I don't let it bother me anymore. But it is a shame all the same.

I really like the font but how do you use the fill?


Em42
Em42 Thu, 2nd July, 2009

@maebe: set your text in Legorama Fill, choose the color, then copy and paste the text object/layer on top and set it to Legorama with a darker color. That's it! :)

Thanks North!

Not really ages, as the design is strongly modular, but at least a week! :)

Found on the Web: it's a LEGO party sign for a four-years-old child birthday party.

Very clever parents indeed! :)

How do you merge the 2 fonts (Legorama and Legorama fill) to get the colorful Lego letters shown above? Please help!

Why cant I get this to work on WORD

@dotdotziggydot...
I have a problem with most fonts that aren't saved using the unicode letter sets. I'm not sure that this is the problem, it's just an observation.

@Em42...
WOW, I like! Nice job. definitely a worthy font.

So, if this fill colour doesn't work in Word, which program does it work in? I can't get the fill working.

@winty5 - what can I use as an alternative to Word?


winty5
winty5 Mon, 16th June, 12:59 AM

If you use a Mac you could use TextEdit or Pages.
If you use PC you could probably use NotePad or download LibreOffice.

I'm no expert on this kind of thing, so can't really help you out here.

Is this one of those double commenting bugs or are you doing this on purpose?
