GS Unicode is a project I'm working on so (almost) all languages get support! With 13,137 non-spacing characters, this font is technically finished, but will be going under legibility renovations. Please tell me if some of the characters aren't working. I'll try to fix them as best as I can!
Accurate spacing is done with a SINGLE PIXEL ABOVE EACH CHARACTER, REMOVE THAT PIXEL to be correct.
I needed a micro font, something that could be done in the tiniest scale, and braille came to mind. it is decipherable, making it good for textures on signs or glyths in pixel art.
SHARE and USE as you wish, its just braille i hold no creative rule over this, literally anyone can make this exactly the same in 3 minutes or so, like i did.
This font combines two simple ideas and puts them together. Braille and color theory.
I had a long time been holding on to this font (about 2 years) but decided that maybe someone out there would like it. Its complicated, in a way, but can end up being the most compressed "barcode" I have ever seen. (With the average letter taking up approximately 2 pixels when used in its "second form" but we will get into that later.
As with many of my fonts, is rooted in braille. So a knowledge in braille is neccesary. (Braille is very very easy to learn)
So heres the nuts and bolts. Lets take a 3 letter word in braille, say, "ice"
o| oo| o
o | | o
i c e
in of itself it takes three braille spots, but, what if we were to use color theory to compress it?
the first letter would be red, the second in yellow, the third in blue? You could have them occupy the same place and have no loss of information! Anywhere red overlapped the yellow, it would be orange, anywhere yellow overlapped blue it would be green! etc.
so, "Ice" could now be expressed as
The word "Ice" is conveyed in a 2x2 packet of colored pixels!
Which brings me to my font. "Rybian" (a play on words of "RedYellowBlue-ian" is a colorless way of expressing that same form.
red is a horizontal line
yellow is a circle
blue is a verticle line
so, logically, orange would be a circle with a horizontal line in it
green would be a circle with a verticle line in it
purple would be a verticle and horizontal line
