A small attempt at using as few bricks per letter as possible. I’m far more satisfied with lowercase than uppercase. I used a 1.5 width in order to obtain a uniform .5 letterspacing.


I missed this first time around - a great success, especially bearing in mind that you did it before FS 2.0 came out.

Completely agree. A very personal interpretation of miniature blocky font. Excellent. Direct download ! More and more I am amazed by the number and the quality of astounding fonts here in Fontstruct. Rob Meek, have you ever thought you would have so many beautiful babies when you gave birth your first Matrix ?

Great simplicity in this font... lending great possibilities. The letter forms are quite intriguing to combine. Mixing up capitals in the midst of lowercase characters also can prove very interesting in Black Agate. Example: The word "spAce" with your awesome uppercase A. How I LOVE that A! I'd like to enlarge, frame, and hang that A on my wall like a piece of art... because it is. This font is a real pleasure, riccard0! Thank you! PS: If you are still thinking of making some adjustments, you might consider some alternates for the capitals H, N, O, Q, S, U, and Z that could be a shade wider, and see how the number 3 might look with the center bar stroke shortened a bit.

You make me blush! ;-)
Thank you for your kind words.
Lately I haven’t had much time for fontstructing, but maybe now I will take your advice and revise some of my work.
