Digging your intentionally low-res work of late. Note the slight forward-leaning stress created by the semi-serif construction and the deliberately recurring slanted terminals. Plus the characteristically fontstruct two-to-one contrast. In context, these create more of a graphic script effect than one might expect when considering almost any single glyph.

Yeah, aside from pxling them (or making connecting scripts), fontstruct’s metrics controls are still way out to lunch for classically small-scale fontstructions. Especially involving anything resembling a serif or half-brick extremity. Doubling the resolution for side bearing placement (or, ultimately, filter scaling) would help somewhat.

Honestly, though, nearly anything we can make at this scale will be best suited for headlines and logos...not to say setting small blocks of text is completely out of the question...but kerning by hand is not a totally unreasonable expectation. Just too bad for anyone stuck with a standard word processor. And fontstructors (read: all of us so far) without the time, willingness, and/or capacity to invoke TypeTool or FL and create some decent metrics/kerning pairs.

This is a great one intaglio. I really love the m and n.

Nice one tag :)

I think the x in 'micro-splotchica' would benefit from similar treatment to the one here.

Another fine example, I could recognise as yours from a mile or so. The text it produces is beautiful, with some minor spacing-kerning issues. Yes, it's probably not much hassle to adjust them in a font editor until Fontstruct will open its own kerning facility. 10/10
