This is a tall monospaced font, so I had to get a bit creative with some of the glyphs. But I think it's relatively legible.


Oh, yeah!! I can read it fine, actually... it's cool.

Well, Mm and Ww are the most difficult to decipher. Also, you could’ve taken a more traditional approach with Q, since lowercase has descenders anyway. But I like the overall feeling :-)

What was the grid size?!?!?
Comment by Agent Demonic Ladybug 12th March 2011
I'd say 3 by 7 plus 2 for descenders. Filters are 2:

Looks like some pretty tough composites! Must've been hard.

I love the layering by making the bricks bigger

I made an alternative font taking care of a few issues with this font. What do you think of it? I'm not trying to say that this font is bad; I'm just taking advantage of the minor room for improvement. Some of my letters weren't as good, actually... but I tried.

@CMUNK : Your Monotwist served as structural inspiration for my brand new work "CHALICE", hope you'll like it.

@CMunk : Just published what will be the last, definitive evolution of Chalice, my font freely inspired by this one. Thanks once again for great support and your motivating work. Here's the link

My recent "Garage Garbage (GG)" is different, but some glyphs are similar though, and I'm already thinking of your Э,З as alternatives for my GG, if you don't mind...

WOW just cool. One of my favorite mono fonts of all time.
Comment by Noah (winty5) 24th May 2014
@CMunk: CHALICE my font first inspired by monotwist has been completely redesigned to be more a font than a cool collection of shapes
