A kind of 3D, dot matrix, uppercase, tubular affair.


Very creative.

A very cool idea. Good work!

Hi, I hadn't honestly expected much feedback, if any - thanks guys.

I have to admit, this was more an exercise in persistence and a consequence of temporary insomnia, than anything else.

I'd tried to do a type sample, but despite being a fun font to have completed, the sheer un-useability of the typeface meant that nothing was really happening. Although if anyone fancies a go - please do.

Great effect and usage of horizontal scale. I'd like to see what it would look like with all columns equal to the tallest height.

Hi chr.s, it must have taken forever to achieve this ... but the result is certainly well worth the effort.

I'm pretty new to FS and took a giant leap forward when djnippa pointed me towards brick stacking ... but I have wracked my brains trying to work out how you get those amazing curves. I can't even start to imagine how you get two bricks to appear together!

If it's not a secret, I'd love to learn you achive that - it opens up so many possibilities :)

I went straight back and this time I had amore exhaustive look. So, it's all in the filters is it?

As a newbie I am discovering that there are so many great aspects to FS ... it really is the gift that keeps giving :-)

It's no secret at all... you're spot on about the filters - in fact I don't think this particular font uses stacking anywhere.

I honestly can't remember the inspiriation behind this one... I think I originally had an idea to use a bent tubing effect to make up the letter-forms, but it ended up turning out like this. Not quite what I was originally aiming at, but then that's often the way with this program... the limitations often direct you into unexpected territory.

Thanks also for your kind words.

Very original 3D effect, and there are plenty on FS !

Awesome! Instant 10/10 and favorite from me.

I spent plenty of time staring at this to figure out the actual worst seat. I think it's the tallest one on "C". Imagine sitting there and then having to get past the people further down the curve, all just to get to the concession stand!

(I also think _ has the five best seats.) :D
