The font in action!

Nice. It also looks like an embroidery stitch.

Thanks zeph!

Comment by Sed4tives 10th september 2018

The style of it makes me yearn for real stamp letter cutouts.

Comment by thalamic 10th september 2018

From the early 2008, made by nitrada and toppicked.


The original stamp here.

Glyphs that appears in the stamp: P, O, S, T, C, D, E. The rest of the alphabet it must be created by nitrada and by you sepparatelly, I think. I'm right? Or maybe you has another original sample with more glyphs? I see too much coincidences between your glyphs and the originals from nitrada. A, B, F, K, M, U, V, W, X, Y, Z, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, $, & and more are identicals. If this was a copy you must post it, IMHO.

As much as you would believe so, I have not copied/cloned any of his glyphs. and yea I do have a couple of more images from this stamp development stages but none actually show more glyphs than the original published stamp does... all sketches show exacrly this same word.

Two people with the same tools can find similar or same solutions, I know that. Don't misunderstand my comments, please.

Comment by elmoyenique 18th september 2018

I fully understood your comment, dont worry!

Comment by Sed4tives 19th september 2018

But this is simply what you can run into when both revisiting something! The risk of two very identical works. But If I would've copied him I would mention it by crediting the original.

I have done this in the past as well, even for as little as just one glyph (not cloned or copied but a redrawn one) but I credited the original!

Comment by Sed4tives 19th september 2018

Both of you have clearly followed the design brief of the designer(s) and were able to complete what clearly hadn't been required to be shown on the stamp. I think this easily happens when a font design starts with such an obvious/precise departure point.

Comment by Aeolien 19th september 2018

It has a really nice effect...

Comment by anonymous-1520403 19th september 2018

@ Aolien: Spot on! And this design in particular (with the puchholes) doesn't allow room for huge variations without ruining ballance!

@ Se7en: Yep, its a very cool lettering.
