21 downloads21%20downloads216 comments6%20comments6106 glyphs106%20glyphs106A favorite of 8 usersA%20favorite%20of%208%20users8I am studying in my third year of Graphic Design at the university of the west of England (Bristol UWE). I've been away from fontstruct for over a year now, and over the last few weeks I've seen some of the new first year students using it a lot. I couldn't help but notice the new bricks and brick stacking features that are now available.

 
I have designed this typeface on a very small scale, to allow for the bezier curves created by the new bricks. I have had to use some creative brick stacking in order to get as much form out of the typeface as I could. 


Some of the lowercase glyphs seem to have some similar resemblance to the modernist typeface "universal" by Herbert Bayer. Although "universal" has no uppercase glyphs, whereas mine does!


I am really pleased with this font, so thanks very much to fontstruct for putting in the new features.


When using this font, I recommend that you set the tracking to around -120 or so, and set the kerning to "optical" rather than metrics". The letters will set quite nicely under these settings.

Hope you like it!
