DOTTITI BOLD : Having - like many designers - looked out for decent 3x3 typefaces, I decided to try my own as each existing version had some flaws or didn't completely follow the rules. The slight difference here is that circles are used, giving more readability to some characters. I completely restricted the design to the 3x3 grid meaning some characters are pretty abstract, BUT they follow the rule! #dottiti #zissdesign

The idea behind my font is having a shape then bending it round continuously without any breaks/gaps to create the letterforms. I have always enjoyed working with circles through out my design work and it so happened to be a recurring theme through out my font. I experimented many ways on creating circles using FontStruct - this proved difficult. I did some research on how other designers created their circular based fonts. Many used the circle bricks by nudging and layering to create an illusion of a circle. I feel that my font could be used both large and small scale. In large scale you can see the non-smoothness of the curves and makes it seem caterpillar like which may appear ugly to some. In small scale it is the opposite - the circles appear perfect and the curves look smooth. My font is very simple which makes it legible to read in both scales.

A clean, simple font. Easy on the eyes, and a great font for dyslexics. Easy to read, easy to distinguish each symbol.
