It looks simple but the execution was surprisingly involved. The idea was to do the letters in as few bricks as possible. Filters. 1.75...to be exact. Again, the geometry did not work out because custom bricks had to be formed to create the fine breaks and they did not line up with the assumed filter. A little bit of algebra later (yes kids, algebra does help in real life) 1.6 was determined as the proper filter setting.

Having built the letters as desired, with many a tweak before finalization, it was on to Overflow, which necessitated a reduction of the letters in half. That was easier said than done because of the filters. Some of the letters just did not translate exactly at half scale at 1.6 filter. Had to scrap the whole thing.

The only option remaining was to double the size and use the double size glyphs for Stack and move the existing Stack glyphs to Overflow. Doubling allowed finer glyph construction. Plenty of diversions later, what came out as reasonable was a strict following of my own grid. Figures.

It is now to the point where I can send it out in the world. I must do that before I do the sample because both thalamic and minimum accounts give a 500 Server Error when attempting a download. Luckily, I have yet another secret account which I will use to attempt download. I hope that works because I am in no mood to build words by taking screenshots and copy/pasting individual letters.

This was supposed to be a simple idea with a simple execution. It should not have taken this long. I'm really curious to see how successful the idea was.

Elegant, feminine, joyful, rounded, with a positive swing to it.
Working with shapes and 'frames' I made this for the "mix-and-match" set of decorative fonts called CIRCE. The caps can be used as a "majuscle" but might overload visually if used exclusively in a text? The LC are quite legible in smaller sizes.

Playing with shapes and 'frames' I made this for a "mix-and-match" family of decorative fonts called CIRCE. The caps look great as a "majuscle" but can also be used at the beginning of sentences (breathtaking alternative, try it in text without a full-stop after a sentence). Arched numbers could be useful to indicate the result of a maths question ;) 
Use of punctuation marks in an arch might make a plain CIRCE text more eyecatching. They can be used as a decorative element, as divider, etc.etc. 
A single empty arch is available on the "=", double empty arches on the "[", "]" and "/", triple empty arches on the "" Those few other puctuation marks I made are on their respective places :)For%20the%20goddess%20Circe%20...%0D%0APlaying%20with%20shapes%20and%20%27frames%27%20I%20made%20this%20for%20a%20%22mix-and-match%22%20family%20of%20decorative%20fonts%20called%20CIRCE.%20The%20caps%20look%20great%20as%20a%20%22majuscle%22%20but%20can%20also%20be%20used%20at%20the%20beginning%20of%20sentences%20%28breathtaking%20alternative%2C%20try%20it%20in%20text%20without%20a%20full-stop%20after%20a%20sentence%29.%20Arched%20numbers%20could%20be%20useful%20to%20indicate%20the%20result%20of%20a%20maths%20question%20%3B%29%20%0D%0AUse%20of%20punctuation%20marks%20in%20an%20arch%20might%20make%20a%20plain%20CIRCE%20text%20more%20eyecatching.%20They%20can%20be%20used%20as%20a%20decorative%20element%2C%20as%20divider%2C%20etc.etc.%20%0D%0AA%20single%20empty%20arch%20is%20available%20on%20the%20%22%3D%22%2C%20double%20empty%20arches%20on%20the%20%22%5B%22%2C%20%22%5D%22%20and%20%22%2F%22%2C%20triple%20empty%20arches%20on%20the%20%22%3C%22%20and%20%22%3E%22%20Those%20few%20other%20puctuation%20marks%20I%20made%20are%20on%20their%20respective%20places%20%3A%29
