DAN NIET — Futuristic rounded sans
This is a recreation of Svetoslav Simov's Dan typeface that was published by Fontfabric back in 2010.

A while ago I came across some image that used this cool futuristic geometric sans. And without first doing proper research I started to FontStruct the lettering seen in the image. Once those were completed I didn't really had a good vision on where to lead the rest of the letter inventions, so I went looking online to find something similar that perhaps could get me inspired to complete it after all.

Scouring the web for a while I stumbled upon some sample images for a typeface called DAN by Svetoslav Simov. And it was unmistakably the font seen in the initial image that I used for the first couple of letters.

Now, I could've abandoned the project at this stage and take my loss, but I felt that the work that already had been done up to this point would be a sad waste of something that was actually kind of fun to make. So for this reason I decided to go ahead and continue the project, and instead this time the focus shifted towards recreating the original DAN typeface.

I included a number of small changed to certain letterforms to suite my personal preference better, but it very much remains Svetoslav's work.

Because the original DAN typeface is a commercial product this recreation won't be made available for downloading. It was strictly made for the fun of it, with no intent to redistribute. It was published solely as a showcase of the FontStruct editor's capabilities.

I dubbed the project DAN NIET which is Dutch for THEN DON'T.
This sort of as a wordplay to the original's name and it's off-limit legally restricted status, hence the inclusion of DON'T.

— It still remains a WIP..

The uppercase Q looks like an Ը.

Can you fix the font please?

Kind of reminds of that one font for the New Super Mario Bros. logos, and an in-game font for Super Mario Bros. Wonder.

Perhaps somewhat inappropriate, and definitely NSFW, but now that @Fgm12345 is back on a rampage,  it had me thinking about something slightly related I did to one of my fonts...

@RobMeek: Please just remove the sample image above if the content is too much...
