A font with a vague "telegraphed message" or "hacker terminal" feeling about it. Seems like something that would be in a video game or creepypasta...
Some kind of great big ol' chain.
In retrospect, I think it looks like a jewelry chain from a dwarven civilization. Perhaps the hypothetical jeweler cut and ground the stones in an imitation of some dwarven font!
When glyphs are used in isolation, they somewhat resemble carved signets or seals. Increasing the letter spacing allows you to create a variation of the design. (This is something that must be done in-software since the font will render as monospaced by default.)
12SEP2018: Added lowercase... the low resolution combined with the design method make it very difficult to render distinctive lowercase versions of every letter, but I'll keep working on it. There's a lot of similarity between pairs like S/5, Z/2, etc., so this font is most effectively used in forms of writing wherein context suffices to inform the reader as to the identity of each glyph (lists, prose, and technical writings). If you want to use this in a password system or something, I recommend using one case's glyphs only.
1. Negative spaces will be areas of 0.5 bricks' effective length or width.
2. Negative spaces may exceed the 0.5 measurement only by increments of 0.5 and in only one dimension at a time.
3. Glyphs will fill their framed canvasses to the greatest extent possible while adhering to the other rules.

This has many uses! It works as a pixel font or a high-res one, and can generate a surprising range of visual effects.

Proper Font Use Rules:
The uniqueness of this font requires a few rules in order to generate the required effect. Each word should have a capital letter preceding it, and all the trailing letters in the same word should be lowercase. The font was designed to overlap in the style of cartoon lettering from the 70's. The upper case letters have a border to the left, while the lower case letters do not, and by using some trick spacing and kerning techniques, I was able to fudge in most characters so that it looks like the first letter (a capital) overlaps the next, which overlaps the next.
When using contracted words (70's, Truck'n) the insertion of a single or double quotation mark makes the lower case letter to the left of the ' or " mark inappropriately wide and sometimes borderless, so in the Single and Double High-Reversed 9 Style Quotation Marks (201B & 201H) I added a version of each quote mark with a border as an alternate for using it as quotes just outside a word.
Although all the lowercase characters can look like they overlap each other, even within a lowercase sentence where each word is not capitalized, something looks off about that and therefore word capitalization seems required.
Authorized Use Summary:
You may use this font as a type style for any projects, private, personal, charitable, commercial or government use as long as you attribute/credit the authoring designer, Doug Peters. A single ACTIVE link in social media, on a website, or in a blog will suffice to use this font for as long as the attribution/accreditation link remains active. To use it as a web font: With an accreditation (attribution) link on any website/blog in question that uses this font, you may in fact also use this font as a web font (#webfont) on that web site/blog, should you desire to.
In the section below, I list a variety of my websites. You may link back to this font or to any one of my websites. A simple sentence that includes such a link crediting me will suffice, such as "Font used for (describe how the font is used) is Graphee-Tee by Doug Peters, Font-Journal." Graphee-Tee can be linked to the font (your choice of font archive hyperlinks given below), and/or you can link my name to one of my profile/portfolio websites or blogs (given in the promos section below), and/or you can link the Font-Journal text to the Font-Journal itself (https://www.font-journal.com/). You may rephrase, use your own words.

Byte-size Outline is an earlier archive of Faraday before I decided to change it up a bit, but I tried on the little various width black dot holes for specific letter loops (as I felt was approriate). This one had a certain cartoonistic flair that I thought was cool (and has since been, or might yet be, cleaned up out of Faraday).This is a clone of Faraday
Trying a Courier style. The lowercase has a slightly bottom-heavy design, while the uppercase keeps it consistent. Serifs everywhere!
It fits into typewriter/detective type aesthetics as well as rustic and western ones.
This one is made for a friend. We'll see if they ever end up using it. :v
EDIT: It seems as if said friend is never going to make their webzine... so, feel free to do with this one as you wish.
An experiment to see if my drawing tablet would be compatible with Fontstruct. Seems to work fine, although I have to draw slowly to avoid broken lines! Despite having to move my arm very slowly, I still managed to create this font from scratch in 9 minutes.
This looks like the freehanded pen letters that I drew back in high school for my comics, particularly "Poodle Caboodle". I went over a few areas more than once, to simulate what I used to do to correct pen drawings.
A font I designed for the animation series, "The Boris Barkov Show". This is made to look blocky and industrial, but still fairly modern. It's mostly built on a 5x5 grid, and is perfectly useable as a pixel font, but is meant for high-res applications.
The show's titlecards only use this font in uppercase. But, I designed a lowercase for the sake of accessibility.
The show is about a stereotypically Russian, mustachioed, ushanka-wearing pug named Boris Barkov. Apart from speaking both English and Russian, he's able to play the video game "Escape From Tarkov", wield a sword and rifle, and carry and throw objects despite his lack of opposable thumbs. His nemesis is PugB (the Americanized "Rambo" pug) and he's rumored to have shady dealings with Sam Yippington, the Latvian Dachsund arms dealer...
