We (the place where I work) are attempting to brand ourselves because our field is getting a bit too crowded and we don't want to get lost in the clutter. In the process, we are exploring a lot of different styles. Not that we are unsure how we want to proceed or what our positioning will be, we want to ensure nothing obvious is overlooked. In the process, a lot of ideas are generated, some discarded outright while others —as long are they support the planned positioning— are pursued long enough to recognize if they are worth exploring further...or not.
Some letters from this font were developed as part of one of the proposed wordmark. Overall, it works without breaking any of our internally established rules. The problem is one of extensibility and adaptability for unforeseen future needs which this font is prone to cause owing to its personality. The logo work was done in Illustrator, of course. However, to see if the typeface has potential beyond the few glyphs of the wordmark (and not in small part due to its modular nature), I worked out the remainder of the letters here in the fontstructor. :-)
I'd appreciate it if I could have your constructive criticism on each or any of the glyphs and how they could be improved. Specifically, I am trying to avoid awkwardness in the coming together of any two letters. As you can see, it's very much a work-in-progress.

How about this way, Xenophilius? :^)
It looks, err, rather covoluted at the default display size. Try zooming in! 8)
P.S. There’s a starting character on Í (option+shift+s for Mac). Spaces can be used to pad the wave effect and create shapes and background textures. Enjoy!
