I finally made a folded-/ribbon-style design. This one contains a number of experimental techniques. Most notably, the swept parts of glyphs are allowed to extend beyond the letterwidths and sometimes even the baselines. This enhances the sense of movement, creates some interesting linkages, and reduces the need for kerning.

All of these shapes can be constructed with paper or ribbon, although lots of clever folding tricks, doubling, and pinning down/securing with glue would be required.

Alternate tilde on "±".

Chamadarya is an Integral Artifice (synthetic universe) I created for the ESOSVM simulation in 2013. It's a place dominated by vast stretches of open sky punctuated by extremely tall mesas and plateaus. Most of the buildings and temples there are made from chrysoberyl, which is extensively engraved, often with a lettering style that looks much like this. Of course, that language is non-Latin so it looks nothing like this design.
