Interesting!

Some considerations:

k feels narrow – try nudging to give the arm and leg a wider stance.
5 and s are ambiguous – a square shoulder for the top of 5 might help.

Direct brick substitutions will allow you to generate both lighter and bolder weights from your very clean and simple constructions. Nice work!

cool z, ß

Comment by JingYo Fri, 12th April

@will.i.ૐ: thank you for your feedback! :) i changed now k, 2 and 5. k looks better now, you were right! i don't know how to make lighter and bolder weights, since there are no light half bricks like ◧ or small cubes...

The 8 should be moved up...

@blu. looks great! Nice thought on the 2 as well.

It’s true, these bricks that allow a variety of weights with a simple substitution rule in this design are not all readily available in the default sets. However, you can construct them yourself using the composite brick function.

Give it a shot! I’d really like to see this design adapted to the lightest weight presently possible. :)

P.S. When using the 2:2 filter setting, constructing composite bricks can be a little trickier. Reverting temporarily to 1:1 will make things a breeze. Cheers!

@will.i.ૐ: ok, thanks. i will look how this works and try. :) i don't know all functions yet.

Very nice!

i just published an extra light version of this font

Comment by blu. Mon, 15th April

Nice 'simple' minimalist looking font, and very useful for display work due to the punctuation marks and the chosen Latin diacritics... I like the s and z.  10/10
