This font almost made itself, when I found out that you could make an almost regular hexagon with vertical segments 9 bricks long and angled segments at 4*sqrt(5) = 8.94

What if there were ‘hexasegment’ indicator cells? Now, thanks to new block displacement feature, we know!

In 1983, Atari released the Crystal Castles video game. You play Bentley Bear walking around castles and collecting gems. Trimetric instead of isometric. Interestingly enough, the initials of the highest scorer in the leaderboard is used to build the first castle.
This font version is created using the same thin plated tiles that the player traverses through the castles.
This was fun to do. I made the sample scroll down in like another 80s video game classic: Marble Madness. It was difficult fitting the whole thing within 48 grid squares, but totally possible. This was actually kept a little under at 46.This is a clone

Alternatives more classics to some glyphs: other "e" is at the "<" glyph, and another "r" is placed at the ">" one too. Hope you like it.

Another item in the collection of typefaces based on hexagons. Now there's only a single row of hexagonal, mostly lowercase letters that, with exception for I's and X-es, nearly collide with each other, almost touching their rightmost and leftmost corners.
Since it's not possible to adjust letter width with accuracy of a fraction of a single column, the space character is very narrow - in order to give ability to manually adjust the desired spacing between the letters, especially when they overlap each other. Who cares anyway? It's a display font (not suitable for reading, composing long paragraphs, etc.) and it's a shame if one doesn't play a bit with the letter spacing when designing a logotype. Am I right? Sure I am.
Gonna come up with some cool samples ｡◕‿‿◕｡

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.

Prog is a condensed, geometric, modular display typeface with a contemporary sci-fi aesthetic. The design draws from a multitude of influences. Specifically I was inspired by: mathematics, Japanese space-rock, the movie MOON (directed by David Bowie's kid), and the Funk King's wonderful molecular work here on FontStruct.
The principle building block for the design is an obtuse angle segment that's cloned, reflected, and rotated to create an entire letter. Mapping the technique to the whole typeface was a challenge and there are some compromises (see D and U). As is frequently the case with these strict modular exercises the T is the stand out ugly duckling.This is a clone

Bitten by afrojet's coloring technique. In fact this fontstruction owes its completion merely to try out his technique. Thanks, aj.

Built inside hexagonal shapes. Lowercase are bee-related freemasonry-like symbols.
Special characters are the following:
. is for a full cell;
, is for a single-border cell;>
_ is for an double-border cell;
+ is for an empty space (FontStruct preview only);
- is for half empty space (FontStruct preview only).
