Read as I read 2 is a typeface that I have developed from the previous design 'Read as I read'. With the same aim to capture the movement upon which the letters are distributed around the page caused by dyslexia. A feature common amongst dyslexics, that causes difficulty and uncertainty when trying to make out written words. In developing the typeface I aimed to increase legibility, to make it more universal. Whilst continuing to capture the context of why I initially created the typeface. Representing this by combining the same letter form twice, and overlayingthem in order to capture the aspect of movement. This time all in captials to help with legibility.
Another mirror font! I made it in a square style so it would mirror more neatly. This also had the consequence of giving the font a "runic" look.
Looks best at Pixel sizes, but works with any size!
The name "Mirror Mang" comes from two things: the Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band song "Mirror Man" as well as the way my friends from New Zealand say "man".
Original size: 7pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
Isometric 3D outline style typeface.
The glyph have a exact copy slighly elevated and to the right of its original which I then connected with eachother to create the box-like three-dimensional idea.
Because of some serious design difficulties it remains far from complete, but I am kind of done with it for now due to this. For now only support for uppercase, no numerals and very limited punctuations. I think I fully kerned it, or at least everything that is important. On last thing I need to mention, the smallest open spaces doesn't allow this font to work in very small size. These will look filled at smaller point size.
I'm not sure if I will ever try another attempt to finish it at a later stage. (who will tell..) ;)
But I think what I've got so far is too cool for not publishing it. So for now it would do just fine as a logotype or for a decorative usage but not much else.
Enjoy!This is a clone
Is it Serif or Sans? Western or Gothic? Double font or not? One thing is certain: This is not a time-travelling alien. Probably.
