It’s an exclamation. A convergence of retro styles coming together to form an innovative, modern look. Art Deco meets the twenty-first century.

I'm completely fond of this font. Perfectly crafted, original and at the same time strangely familiar. Art Deco of the 20s meets the computerstyle of the 70s.
Excellent work.

Thanks neurone error for your comment! This was my first fonstruct. My inspiration was definitely art deco in the beginning and then it sort of morphed into the style it is now.

You're welcome. I know what you mean, I've been there. Sometimes you begin in a certain direction, and then your creation seems to tell you : hey hey, not so simple, dig a little more ! and digging you find a more subtle and generally more interesting way that the first was hiding. Exciting is n't it ?

What a great first font, balanced and airy - welcome to FS :)

As always I must add that I am not a fan of the swastica Xx. I know time has passed (and that it was used by far earlier cultures), but it remains something that always causes me unease.

Wow THANK YOU SO Much for your comment p2pnut...I had no idea how much that actually resembled a swastika. It was hard for me to come up with a design for the X..do you have a suggestion to help me?
Comment by juliannicole 11th April 2010
Hmmmm ... me and my big mouth :) Given the square design of this font, I can see that it is extremely difficult to avoid the swastika X. Here are a few ideas that might hint at reducing the swastika effect a wee bit.
Comment by p2pnut 12th April 2010
@p2Pnuts : I like very much your third solution of alternate X, pure equilibrium, the 3 others don't fit, I think. What do you think, Julia ?
Comment by Abneurone Fluid Types 12th April 2010
I like the 3rd solution as well neuorone error. Thanks for the ideas p2Pnuts, when I get the chance I am going to try it out and make some changes :)

Very nice work Bravo! love Art Deco

I agree for the X, definitively the 3rd solution is my preference.
For me I'm not quite sure about the Zz I did'nt try it in a text, but If you plan to split the Xx I suggest to split the Zz as well so you'll have 3 glyphs witch are split in two... the S, X and Z.
"3" in design is nice ;)

The design of Zz could be very close to the number 2


But no matter a split Z or not the font is very nice ;)
good work again
