There are alternates for m, n, w & r ... any thoughts?
Comment by p2pnut 3rd November 2012
Smooth and pretty "non-struction". I prefer the regular m n w r.

my 10 to you! it's so cute!
Comment by regular_one 3rd November 2012
Cute, funny, happy... just the way I like :)
Can you reconsider "e"? It has sharp edge that makes it different from others..

I thought of elmoyenique’s work when I saw this. Very fun and well realized. The lively details that take it out of square are great! Personally, I like the alternate w.

Excellent work, fun, retro, bubbly and nice dynamic in textview. I love the alternate w, but the regular r, m and n are more in keeping with the rest of the font. How about an alternate A with counter? 10/10 + fav!

Thank you all.

I feel that I should mention the influence that led me to this one ... I saw that cute 'C' online and it grew from there.

I have since found out that the C comes from a font called MumboJumbo by Nick Curtis.

Hopefully the solutions that I developed for the rest of the font are sufficiently different from MumboJumbo and allow this to stand.

Simple and round with a large grid, 10/10! But it looks like there's a stray brick above the z.

@Umbreon126: Thanks for spotting that :)

What a lovely Jazz Type. Cool !
Comment by beate 4th November 2012
RM Jazz Age is much more dynamic, lively and playful than MumboJumbo and it also has a lower case! Does the letterwidth on c need to be slightly increased?
Comment by four 4th November 2012
OUPS Sorry,
This was the french version

I meant »wonderful« : ])
Comment by beate 4th November 2012
I'm with four! (And, when I saw this font, I asked me why I don't make some like this before) Excellent! 10/10.
Comment by elmoyenique 4th November 2012
Awesome...love the lowercase especially.
Comment by aphoria 4th November 2012

where's the ★
@p2pnut : do you work with fontlab too?
Comment by regular_one 5th November 2012
Thanks everyone for your support and encouragement.

@regular_one: I couldn't afford Fontlab ... and wouldn't know how to use it if I could. I downloaded the free TypeLight program, but haven't managed to get my head around it. So I carry on with good old FS.

@architaraz: I have slightly changed the 'e'
Comment by p2pnut 5th November 2012
Thanks for the "e".
Comment by architaraz 5th November 2012
Playfully retro. Love it.
Comment by laynecom 7th November 2012
Love It! Looks kinda like cheese.

Cheers Mr M. :-)
Comment by p2pnut 8th November 2012
That must be a massive grid you used !
Comment by yokubo 24th November 2012
@yokubo: It's just over 50 bricks high.
My usual range is between 50 and 60 bricks as I find that best for creating smoother curves.

Hi, p2pnut. Today, after seeing a font named Independant on dafont, I remembered this little cute font of yours. I decided to make it on a space I'm used to (4x4 grid with doubled filters). Now, I'm writing asking permission to share it on FS. It'll be clonable, otherwise there's no point :) Here's what it looks like:

@architaraz: Wow, wow, only 4x4 grid?? Mind blown.
Comment by cablecomputer 17th December 2012
@archtaraz: That is absolutely amazing!!! Of course you must share this brilliant piece of work ... I will probably clone it myself, so that I can learn the secrets of your incredible skill with small grid composites :)
Comment by p2pnut 17th December 2012
I'm with the great p2pnut: astonishing work here! (I like this kind of levels, you know!) 10/10!
