Not quite a script, but definitely connected...


Very very creative. I've never seen a font designed this way before. Ultra unique.
Comment by djnippa 31st may 2013
This is so inventive!!! I wish I'd thought of this!
Comment by Noah F. Ross (winty5) 1st june 2013
Creative and a great execution! I wonder if judges will drop the script part of "connected script" theme, and turn it into a "connected glyph" :)
Comment by kassymkulov 1st june 2013
Congrats for the entry! I'm with the guys... And I presume they come more "connection surprises" in the next fonts of this ScriptComp...
Comment by elmoyenique 1st june 2013
Full marks for creativity.
Comment by thalamic 1st june 2013
Excellent and so inventive. I'm really impressed. 10/10+++
Comment by p2pnut 1st june 2013
Splendid little ghostly number packed full of figure/ground illusions. The way you’ve played with negative space is inspired. Now I want to see lupo’s words built from spiraling coils of wires that reveal the precise, yet informal letterforms only from a specific vantage point.

i'm with nippa. Ultra unique. 10 FAV. already a winner!
Comment by regular_one 1st june 2013
The t doesn't connect like the others. Why doesn't it work like the r? Anyway, great font! 10/10
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 1st june 2013
Ingenious approach!
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 1st june 2013
Winner. Hands-down.
Comment by demonics 1st june 2013
I'm speechless. 10/10/fav/compwinner
Comment by laynecom 1st june 2013
Thanks so much, everyone. I didn't really anticipate this level of response...
Comment by four 1st june 2013
Well how could you not, it's so brilliantly executed!
Comment by Houlaiziaa 1st june 2013
I know right?! This is the most creative entry in this comp, mine seem so boring and mainstream compaired to this amazingly creative work.
Comment by Noah F. Ross (winty5) 2nd june 2013
The most innovative entry so far...
Comment by cablecomputer 3rd june 2013
love this !
Comment by mayadki 3rd june 2013
@Cmunk: thanks for the suggestion. I have changed t and made some other minor changes. The only letters left without a real connection now are c (right), k (right) and x (left and right). I am hoping to explore upper case and numbers next and maybe some diacriticals...

@will.i.ૐ: Thanks for your words. I love the idea of a wire sculpture that could reveal different things depending on your point of view.

@everyone else: thanks again for you support, it means a lot to me!
Comment by four 3rd june 2013
Gets more delightful with each addition.

Brilliant solution for connected script. My favorite. 10/10
Comment by Frodo7 10th june 2013
Thanks Frodo, Upixel and thalamic!

I have been thinking that this font would really benefit from some open type features. One idea is to create three alternates for each glyph: a fully closed one, one that's closed on the left and one that's closed on the right. It would mean hugely increasing the number of glyphs, but give the possibility to create words that are formed by a continues line. I have included an alternate for l and o under the greater-than and less-than keys, so I could create the sample below.

Comment by four 11th june 2013
This is, by far, the most creative entry. 10/10 + fave

Maybe this would work better as a three-part font, like CMunk's Dry Heat. You could create a separate font for initial letters, and another for finals.
Comment by ETHproductions 11th june 2013
Thanks ETH, that would be a good alternative.
Comment by four 11th june 2013
Suggestion for closing gaps. Maybe you could put some closing contours instead of some punctuation, here, I used numbers 0,1,2 to get this effect:

Comment by kassymkulov 11th june 2013
Great idea! (something like my floating connectors in "zage eYe/FS", I'm right?)
Comment by elmoyenique 11th june 2013
Thanks Architaraz, an excellent idea, I'll include them in the font.
Comment by four 11th june 2013
Well, it's official now. Congratulations on being a winner, yet again! :)
Comment by kassymkulov 15th june 2013
Thanks Architaraz and everyone else who voted. I suppose the judges will have the last word on the validity of the entry however...
Comment by four 15th june 2013
Congratulations! I thought this entry was really ingenious, I almost KNEW it would win from the start! Again, Congrats on a great font!
Comment by Noah F. Ross (winty5) 28th june 2013
@four: Daor chara, comhghairdeas! / Dear pal, congratulations! “Lupo” is genial! And you too!
Comment by elmoyenique 28th june 2013
I find the little gaps at the beginning and end of words one of the considerable charms of this font. The breaks smartly echo the negative spaces of your circular counters while accentuating the “double helical” nature of word construction. As above, so below. But moreso, my mind swims while deciding what is on the inside and what is on the outside – all without ever loosing sight of what the word says. This is an impressive and thoroughly delightful illusion.

Of course, options are always nice in a pro package. How about taking initial and terminal forms in yet another direction? You could add snap-on swashes or even decorative arabesques that stylishly spiral off one (or both) of the open terminals of a given letter...

That we are still discussing the open-ended (and open-started!) possibilities proves this one is a winner for all of us.
Comment by William Leverette (will.i.ૐ) 28th june 2013

Impressive design in both form and function. Bravo and congratulations!
Comment by geneus1 24th july 2013
I'm with Cmunk. The T doesn't connect! I guess the judges missed that

Unique! I like how the letters overlap. Keep it up!
Comment by Wizzrobes 2nd september 2013
This is....

Comment by ianleeye 15th september 2013

I couldn't do that if I tried.
Comment by laptou 27th october 2013
It would be cool(er) to have a starting and ending bubble characters so that the word-shape bubble could be self-contained.
Comment by thalamic 24th november 2013
Thanks thalamic, for another great suggestion. I'll try to include it! And thank you to everyone else for all your kind comments!
Comment by four 24th november 2013
