So here is FRIVOLITE, the shape is based on the beautifully shaped shuttle used for this work. Indeed the O and 0 show perfectly the shuttle shape. The other glyphs were made to fit (as far as reasonable) into this specific shape. I know that frivolité is knotting rather than weaving, but this shuttle shape can be found in weaving, too.

8 downloads8%20downloads82 comments2%20comments286 glyphs86%20glyphs86A favorite of 3 usersA%20favorite%20of%203%20users3The Resolution font is designed as a conceptual piece of work, complementing my research in the cognitive and graphic aspects of type. I began working with this form in the summer of 2011 by creating the symbols which would fit into a certain matrix and consist of as little square pixels as possible, thus approaching the conceptual and peceptual boundaries of legibility. After Resolution 3x4 I went further and designed Resolution 3x3, which is even more closer to the limit of legibility than 3x4. 

There is an important aspect in such minimalistic and conceptual approach–-it is the similarity of these types with the weaving patterns, which can be traced back to many archaic European cultures. The Resolution font makes a tribute to these original, pre-alphabetic systems of information encoding through weaving patterns. 

At the same time Resolution font is made to emphasize the importance of square pixel as a structural and conceptual limit of digital reality, which comes to an end when a certain resolution is reached. It applies both to visual encoding of information (with pixel as a graphic building block) and the structure of information proper (the true-false logic). Instead of creating the illusion of continuity, Resolution font is about being aware of the media and digital (and thus quantized) nature of an image which is falsely perceived as continuous.

I designed this to look like letters that have been either weaved, stitched, or screen printed onto the fabric to create a patchwork quilt effect.
This seems to work best using a sack cloth effect.
Although it works equally as well as a wire fence/ chequered steel/ tread plate / diamond plate flooring effect.
In an ideal world there would be more empty weaves at the top and bottom of each character. I would also prefer a different style Q.
Due to comp rules I have had to omit the lower case, and others, as this just squeezes into the 32 pixel height limit.
