Just another try to break the limit of bricks! B) Some letters may looks strange or bad and boring... So, I need some suggestions and font innovators here! :0


Very nice! Simple but unique, I especially like K and Q. I think the bottom 7 and ? could be more centered, maybe Q's tail too. And the diagonal in 2 could be slightly higher, like in Z.

Cloned it to take a closer look, apparently Q's tail can't be centered (or the diagonal in N). Maybe you could consider making another version with slightly different proportions.
Also, the inner bottom right curve on @ could be one brick to the right.
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 8th May 2012
Still some suggestions: 4's bar one brick higher, and a top right curve to 5. :)
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 8th May 2012
Oh wow, thanks for the suggestions! :) I'll try.

A great bit of minimalist slabbery :) I think the X would look better if it was inverted, so that the smaller half is at the top. Maybe it could be a wee bit thinner too (to match the other diagonals). Still well worth 10/10

I made this sample to commemorate a BIG tragedy that just happens 2 days ago.

A Sukhoi is doing a test drive and Salak Mountain that located in West Java, Indonesia have chosen for the location.
When it flew over the mountain, there was foggy and everyone see nothing.

Unfortunately, the pilot lost contact an so it crashes right on the body of the plane where the fuel located.

So it exploded and nobody saves.

Is Indonesia your country?
Comment by demonics 13th May 2012
Our thoughts are with the people of Indonesia.

Simple, but strong slabber, agree with p2pnut on X.
Comment by four 14th May 2012

Every glyph has its own unique,fun personality. Maybe change Y?
Comment by Noah (winty5) 2nd January 2013
@Upixel: Wah, thanks :)
@winty5: Thanks! Actually I'm a bit sure about Y but can't make better Y. I'm just stuck.
Comment by cablecomputer 2nd January 2013
Maybe this kind of "Y" and "?":
