Here's what not to do:
--Start an easy fontstruction to pretend you don't have time to do research assignment due last month
--Draw lowercase letters
--Change all letters to have slightly more personality
--Change all lowercase to match the uppercase
--Change all uppercase to match numbers
--Change one letter so that it makes better auto-ligature
--Change all letters to have less personality
At this point, who knows how much time has been sunk into doing this "easy" fs and what it started out as. And unoriginal to boot. Forget it. Next!
I've remade previous AT Sour Love by adding serifs, it fits better for this 45 degree rotated heart. But as previous one, the downloaded font still has rendering issues despite my attempts, most bricks located at lower serifs change into other brick for some unkown reason. Holes in hearts were removed cause they too have rendering issues when downloaded.
I don't know if this has been done before.
It's just a simple & elegant solution utilizing 4 parallel lines.
See how neat the letter 'B' is formed by 6 rectangles.
Please enjoy a private clone to see how I dealt with contrast, curves, bracketing, variable letter width and the difficult-to-achieve emboldening of the capitals’ vertical strokes within a minimal fontstruct matrix (and If you like what you see, please download for personal usage and vote kindly! :)
Intaglio’s amazing recent work makes similar strides (see the excellent rounds, for example), offering a solution before me to several of these long-standing impasses of the medium.
More characters to come... :)This is a clone
