Utilizing the propeller bricks to make curves with split ends. To make banner ends use (parentheses) and [square brackets], and use the underscore between letters to continue the banner. Here is an [e_x_a_m_p_l_e)

Your banner/pangram sample is wonderful!

I was very curious to see how you did the f top curve and cut. Since you left clone on, I explored. Very interesting. It would have never occurred to me to do that.

However, because you are using a 2×2 filter and full size bricks, the placement is tricky. You had to place the quarter corner-cut brick a grid block below the 4×4 bricks.

The following image is an example of an alternate way to achieve the same result. The triangle arrow bricks could have been quartered as well as the corner-curve bricks. Then The shape you wanted could've been made without any overlapping bricks, with each brick of the 4×4 corner you created occupying only one grid block in the 2×2 filter scheme. All this to make selection easier.

Just a thought.

Nice! I especially like this cause it reminds me of the technique used in AT Taspa. (and also some similar FSs like Lenta and lentalicious). Cool, banners!

I'm with thalamic. And I like this kind of experiments with FS. My 10 is 4U.

@Thalamic: Nice solution. I found a solution to make these bricks without a 2x2 filter, too.

Thank you all! And thank you, meek, for the top pick! :D

Great! It's like a mix of AT Taspa and fs quotable. I like the g, k and s. Any plans for uppercase?

Love how the terminals of the glyphs echo the banner ends.

Okay, now I'm done playing around with samples. I don't think I've ever done this many.
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 13th November 2013
A brilliant idea, quite unusual! And the samples show your font perfectly and give ideas for use ;) 10/10
Comment by Aeolien 14th November 2013
The top of the font get's chopped off, anyone else have the same problem?
Comment by shenay 28th February 2014

I have just downloaded it again. I have no problems with culling. Might have been a bug in an earlier version...
