Honda released the Urban EV concept car at the 2018 Frankfurt auto show and used a modular typeface on a screen on the outside of the car. It reminded me of a typeface I designed on Fontstruct a number of years ago, Micro 205, but with two different sized dots instead of squares. SbB Drivetrain 209 is inspired by the Honda design, but beyond a couple of design cues, it's a completely different design.
Create your own license plate! Surround your text with () or . Use '_' to get a truly blank space; use '|' for an uppercase middle dot, '\' for lowercase. Some alternates are available in Latin Extended A. Suggestions and critiques welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
(2017: I think this idea was sort of a spin-off of fs quotable. I was also experimenting with clean sans like this one at the time, which contributed greatly toward the design of the inner font. The () characters are new and a few letters (regular g, alternate g and Q) have been updated, but other than that everything's pretty much the same as 3 years ago.)
