This is amazing, a pumped-up awesome-ivied version of my 5Zlash.
Comment by Noah (winty5) 12th May 2013
Very cool and sleek. The g is a beauty. The x's "/" looks a bit thick, though, and the 2 isn't immediately recognizable as a 2. But definitely 10/10+fav.
Comment by Umbreon126 13th May 2013
Cool work and great alternates!
Not sure about the 3rd alternate g. though.

Still 10/10
Comment by cablecomputer 13th May 2013
Nice work (as always). 10/10

I think I prefer either the first or second altern ate 'g' - other than that I prefer all the original charachters.

Added uppercase...because this font was so ridiculously easy to do.

With a 2×2 filter, the effective x-height is just 2 bricks (4 in reality), hence the weird shapes et sometimes extra thicknesses and brick bumps. Couldn't be avoided. There would need to be a 1/8th brick size reduction possible to make all thicknesses even. No matter. It's just a font. Who cares! :-)

Rofl @ the sentiment/message of the sample above!
Comment by Aeolien 14th May 2013
A powerful little font!
Comment by four 16th May 2013
There is a bit of extra "stuff" on the D.

@thalamic: Not to put your ideas down or anything, but It stands out from the rest in kind of a bad way and messes up the spacing quite a but.
Comment by Noah (winty5) 22nd May 2013
Yes. I know. But the bricks are such at this small scale that nothing else fits. Unless I scale up the whole thing, I'm afraid the D will have to stay messed up as it is.

On a general note, since I don't know where else to say this, FontStruct has grown an incredible amount. It's come to the point where I simply cannot keep up with all the comments and all the shared fontstructions. Keep going, keep growing FontStruct. You are well loved.
Comment by thalamic 1st June 2013
I like this kind of works!
Comment by elmoyenique 1st June 2013
@thalamic You could use a composite

It's a 2×2 filter. If someone can figure out how to do the 1/8th cut, I might implement it.
Comment by thalamic 4th June 2013
The D "extra stuff" is also on the R & P
Comment by j4s13 4th June 2013
@thalamic Ooh! I'll try. I love challenges
Comment by j4s13 20th September 2013
Hmm. This okay?
Comment by j4s13 20th September 2013
Thanks for the suggestion but it makes the character wider.
Comment by thalamic 21st September 2013
How about nudge?
Comment by j4s13 26th June 2015
This was pre-nudge.
Comment by thalamic 26th June 2015
I know, but now how about using nudge?
Comment by j4s13 26th June 2015
Nevermind, saw the change
Comment by j4s13 26th June 2015

lc Z can be fixed with a quarter square brick...
