I've noticed that most influential renditions of Wim Crouwel's fonts are incredibly literal in finding solutions to readability.

My influences come from several places and I plan to create "chamfered" and "rounded" iterations of this typeface.

Wim Crowel's "Neue Alphabet" is the primary driver, hence the font name. Crowel's Foundry specimen is reliant on a 5x5 grid with chamfered, 45 degree corners on glyphs.

For this "Classic", bitmap-styled design, I opt out of utilizing any non-rectilinear principle, but keep the 5x5 grid. Characters have been heavily modified with readability in display as the primary driver, and an invented symbol and number system is created to suit the new system.

I'd love to hear what people think of my take!
