Reminds me of those impossible shapes created by the Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd in the year of 1934…

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) 10th february 2022

This is huge. I sense the 3rd dimension by the twisted, contorted impossible letter shapes. The C, O, P, S, 2, and 3 are particularly mesmerizing. 10/10

Comment by Frodo7 11th february 2022

@elmoyenique Thanks for the excellent colourful sample!

@BWM Thanks, yes, Reutersvärd, Penrose, Escher; all very inspiring.

@Frodo7 Thanks, you are definitely the master of impossible fontsructions. My favourites: Hommage à Escher, Elendil, Voxelstorm

You're welcome, compañero. 100% with you, especially when it comes to my very dear Maestro Frodo7.

If the font couldn't be downloaded from the site, then how is Carlo Arts Festival Presents using it?

Comment by Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) 9th june 2023

Congratulations again, compañero! It's always fantastic and dizzying to see our fonts in real life!

@BWM: Surely our valued four had something to do with it...

Comment by elmoyenique 9th june 2023

@Bryndan W. Meyerholt (BWM) -

• Carlow Arts set up a Fonstruct site and painstakingly recreated the font, brick by brick?

• Carlow Arts hacked the FontStruct website, changed permissions, downloaded the font, then changed the permissions back without anyone noticing?

• @four was hired to design it for Carlow Arts, and only Carlow Arts can use it?

• @four supports Carlow Arts and gave them a copy of the font, sanctioning its use?

• Magic?

The world may never know...

I simply hope four made tons of greenz from the purchased license.

Comment by Sed4tives 10th june 2023

Thanks everyone! There is no mystery here, I designed the graphics for the festival, based on this fontstruction.

@four - Well, darn.  I was actually hoping it was case #2, where Carlow Arts hacked the FontStruct website using 1990s 'HACKERZ-style' methods, yo !!!  ;^)
