While recreating/revising one of my very first fontstructions – April 2008’s Asgard (second to last one) – I realized it was going to take something more drastic still than switching to 2x2 filter settings to realize my dream of a harmonized U&lc set.

The original’s lowercase had several compelling and unique features (at the time), the uppercase worked well enough in all caps display settings...but they very rarely sat comfortably together. The answer couldn’t have been more simple: since the caps (which surprisingly came first...or does this just reveal my noobishness at the time?) are rather narrow, the lowercase itself needed to follow a more logically elongated model.

Here the flexibility of 2x2 filters kicks into high gear as the original design’s lc is tweaked by half a brick extra height to bring about a more righteously rockin’ family.

(Asgard 1.x plateaued at 829 characters, so – as always – more to come...)

Beautiful serif. It has many elegant solutions (eg: v,w,V,W). I especially value the a,g,s, B,G,H,K,M,X, (well I could go on...). Amazing feat for such a small grid. 10/10

Fancyful name from Norse mythology.

very good! the letter "g" is very cool. How you overcame these bricks?:

Thanks for bringing this one back, Will. It was well missed, along with your previous works. Out of the few fonstructions I have cloned, yours I have kept for learning purposes.

Really nice! Every letter works so well! And the "g" is just perfect! Good job ;)

"Hey Will, thanks for the reply.
I have a suggestion for some lowercase characters using brickstacking"
