---------------------------------
I discovered via this article (http://fontsinuse.com/uses/8007/future-exhibitions-n-1) that geneus1 created a similar font (http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/75591) to this one in 2008. Despite the obvious similarities, I did not know of geneus1's font until 2014/11/28.
---------------------------------

Based on Tetris blocks.

I tried to avoid using too many 1x4 and 2x2 blocks.

I also tried to make each character self-supporting...meaning the blocks are built up from the bottom and the upper blocks are supported by the lower ones and not just floating in mid-air. Due to some design decisions and time constraints, I didn't achieve this with every character.UPDATE%0D%0A---------------------------------%0D%0AI%20discovered%20via%20this%20article%20%28http%3A%2F%2Ffontsinuse.com%2Fuses%2F8007%2Ffuture-exhibitions-n-1%29%20that%20geneus1%20created%20a%20similar%20font%20%28http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F75591%29%20to%20this%20one%20in%202008.%20Despite%20the%20obvious%20similarities%2C%20I%20did%20not%20know%20of%20geneus1%27s%20font%20until%202014%2F11%2F28.%0D%0A---------------------------------%0D%0A%0D%0ABased%20on%20Tetris%20blocks.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20tried%20to%20avoid%20using%20too%20many%201x4%20and%202x2%20blocks.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20also%20tried%20to%20make%20each%20character%20self-supporting...meaning%20the%20blocks%20are%20built%20up%20from%20the%20bottom%20and%20the%20upper%20blocks%20are%20supported%20by%20the%20lower%20ones%20and%20not%20just%20floating%20in%20mid-air.%20Due%20to%20some%20design%20decisions%20and%20time%20constraints%2C%20I%20didn%27t%20achieve%20this%20with%20every%20character.

I used many of the new angles enabled by FS 2.0 (1:8, 1:6, 1:4, 1:3, 2:3) in an attempt to create very smooth curves.

The lowercase characters can be layered on the uppercase to get different colored outlines and slashes.

The uppercase contains the characters as the outlines and the internal slashes. The lowercase contains the characters as just the outlines.

The punctuation has the outline only version on the it's key and the slashed version on the SHIFT + key.

Nearly all angles are 1:8 for the horizontals and 1:4 for the verticals.

28 grid squares from the lowest point to the highest across the set.

For reference, the lower case 'o' is 11 squares wide and 13 squares tall.

The large, rounded corners are the standard macaroni bricks.

The tight, rounded corners are made of several several composites and stacked brick combinations. This allows a curve that flows straight into an angle (1:4 in this case).
