Last entry for the Reversecomp. Based on the theme of yin yang, opposites, black vs white, reversed colors etc. Was in a hurry so couldn't quite make UC, cause there were so many various variants of this but the result is similar to the font I saw on Behance.
SbB Codebreaker is my entry for the Reverse Competition. Four parallel glyph sets: Symbols, Positive, Reverse and Alphanumeric. And all with a single brick. I'm really happy with the texture of the type.
A font formed out of Truchet Tiles.
Truchet tiles are formed by taking a single tile composed of opposing quarter circles, then applying its inverse in a random fashion. Here, I've inverted the tiles to create outlines, then developed the negative aspects of the letters, thus creating a reversal of a reversal of a reversal! Boom! Now you're in the third dream level of Inception.This is a clone
Originally intended to be a reversal of my Blokula font. Ended up looking more like swimming pool tiles with recessed text.
Uppercase contains variable widths, lowercase is monospaced to facilitate vertical typing.This is a clone
This fontstruction was made possible by several fontstruct special capabilities: connecting brick, brick stacks, custom bricks, and nudge. Out of 68 bricks used, only the full square brick is from the available bricks; the remaining 67 bricks are all modified in some way or another.
3 bricks tall.
A wicked track-looking font with every letter at least has a 180-degree-flip pair. Perfect for ambigram.

I've returned too late to make a special font for the Reversecomp. I already had changed some aspects of the "Lord Calendulos" version of Calendula set in the clone taken and finished this Lady version today. As my competition entry I flipped the Lady Calendula glyphs horizontally. This means my reversecomp entry font "Calendula Lady" can be used like a plane shadow when placed under Lady Calendula.This is a clone of Lady Calendula
Taking the idea of "reverse" to a heady level of crazy ;) It's based on 'Solstice Wege'.
I know it's the clone of the WEGE version but it still took some time to flipand/reverse parts of each glyph to obtain an interesting visual without having something hopelessly messy ... I enjoyed flipping and reversing to deconstruct the original to get a disrupted look while maintaining aesthetics.3rd entry for the reversecompThis is a clone of n8 Solstice Wege
The reversed version of AT Imagiro for the Reversecomp (2nd entry).
This should be printed on paper and cut according to symmetry axis to achieve the result as in the samples.
Based on a font that I made years back, this “Reverse” contest has been a good excuse to revisit that project and fine tune the letters heavily. Here the challange has been using a single brick, in the case the arrow pointing back, and making the shapes bold and (ok, you have to squeez your eyes a little) legible.This is a clone
from the category of 'also ran'
Only interesting in theory; the practical application leaves a lot to be desired. Incomplete as well. Only sharing now because vacations are over. Back to work from tomorrow moring. Won't really have time to work on this in any meaningful way anymore. Unless inspiration strikes out of somewhere and I am able to stay awake past my bedtime.
Every glyph has a counter rotated glyph or has self rotational symmetry—all except the c, which remains a loner loser.

Full disclosure: This fs was started before there was such a thing as Reverse competition.
Side story on the making: This fontstruction is deceptively simple. It was quite a challenge to execute. Just because the strokes seem flowing doesn't mean they are all placed in the logical grid block. The rounded-off ends forced the bricks to be placed in any of the 8 adjoining blocks and nudged into place. Consequently, due to the nature of nudge only moving as much as half a block in any direction, some compromises had to be made in the shapes.
Reverse in the visual context can mean many things. I decided to create letters and mirrored them, attaching them to a spine.The letters looked like filigree jewellery pendants.
I know that the I , T and W don't follow the design rule; I tried to align them on a spine but the result was unsatisfactory.This is a clone
My 2nd entry for the competition.
This started as a doodle of a strangely shaped Z and a number 2 with slanted links created by unusual shapes. I also tried to design certain letters with lines that broke with tradition, but which could somehow still be added by the mind. A little in the style of the "join the dots" games my grandsons like.
I enjoyed the challenge, setting corners and seeing the horizontal and vertical lines in my mind. It made me look carefully at the internal structure which often wasn't easy to see due to these many gaps. That's when I started adding circles, they gave sense to the inexistant striped lines and helped me see several mistakes concerning line heights and how the conneting bricks would join up, which took another hour or three to get right.
In the end I cloned this design and filled the missing horizontal and vertical lines to make sure all heights were correct -- and told myself that I could have started building this font with all lines first, then change the straight lines into black bricks. But I believe that starting with the join-the-dots idea to build this version made me look more intensely at possible shapes and ways to join them, creating slanted lines inherent to some glyphs in a more artistic way which I found satisfying once I had finished the font.This is a clone of n8 Solstice Wege
I decided that turning a "usual black-on-white" font would be a good way to reverse a font; hence some glyphs are easier to understand than others. I think that artistic minds will enjoy the graphic feel of the quirkiness :)
For some a certain type of (future) text I'll use some of the more abstract looking glyphs as decorative inserts and frames.
The font's name is taken from The Emerald Tablet.

A portmanteau of the term 'Pleat' and 'Uno', mx Pleato was inspired by the wavy pleats of the skirt and the tails of the 'Reverse' symbol arrows found in Uno cards. I was first interpreting the "Reverse" aspect of the glyph designs through a simple sketch of a pleated skirt/ribbon by using the opposites of the arches (AKA valleys) and then furthering the project using quarter arches of a ribbon (like the arrow tails in Uno), opposite-facing rods and other additional elements.
