A portmanteau of the term 'Pleat' and 'Uno', mx Pleato was inspired by the wavy pleats of the skirt and the tails of the 'Reverse' symbol arrows found in Uno cards. I was first interpreting the "Reverse" aspect of the glyph designs through a simple sketch of a pleated skirt/ribbon by using the opposites of the arches (AKA valleys) and then furthering the project using quarter arches of a ribbon (like the arrow tails in Uno), opposite-facing rods and other additional elements.

Inventive letterforms, great to see your working process illustrated.

Comment by four 11th july 2017

@Brynda: Total of 13 bricks based on "My Bricks" palette that I have. Other than the 4 thin macaroni bricks, the rest are composited and/or stacked together.

@four: Thank you!
