My Gosh ! Beautiful! You seem to work at top speed these days and with much success. Much less abstract than Simplenglish but with all your retrofuturistic hallmarks. Excellent reappropriation.

One shift+click of the pxl button above the pxl level demonstrates how this fontstruction is totally geared up for bold versions. Utilizing filters and cloning, you can quickly produce a whole range of heavier weights .

Creating lighter weights within the same grid would take a more ingenious approach. But this could be done using carefully placed half-bricks and L-bricks – and even thinner versions could be made with custom composites and simple brick substitutions in the my bricks palette. Filters then allow you to scale these hypothetical versions to fill in the total range of weights from lightest to heaviest.

Then, if that’s not enough, you could take one of these L-brick versions and start to experiment with varying corner treatments. See afrojet’s Sans Serious or Micromoog series for examples of such variations.

10/10 :)

Thanks for the comments!
@will.i.ૐ: Thanks for the advice, I wasn't aware of the shift+click trick. I'll see if I'll do different weights, probably a bold one at least.

Nice and futuristic. Do you think the 'r' needs work? Perhaps it would look better and less like F it it were a little shorter, or some other solution.
Comment by djnippa 25th April 2012
@djnippa: Yeah, though I'd like to keep the same width on most characters ('I' being the usual exception), but I'll try something. Thanks!

Some suggestions.

Super! You do it very well! This is so minimalist but surprisingly readable and flavored with unique styles. 10/10 of course :)

Kool! Very good!!
Comment by thomas0210 26th April 2012
I had the same thought as djnippa concerning the legibility of r. Here are a couple more suggestions:

Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 26th April 2012
Thanks a lot for the comments and top pick! I changed the r.

@will.i.ૐ I cloned this to make a bold version, but I don't think it can be done without moving every brick or remaking it completely. Or do you have a specific technique in mind for this?
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 26th April 2012
This was built with default filters of 1:1, correct? If so – and the previewer seems to indicate this – bumping up the filters equally anywhere between 1 and 2 for both x and y will generate a range of possible bolder weights.
Comment by William Leverette (will.i.ૐ) 26th April 2012
Yeah, now I noticed that it works if it's below 2, but increasing too much makes it too bold. 1.5 seems good. Thanks again.
