mx Eli is inspired by types used in artisanal goods packages and other sleek, modern brands. It's a serif font without the varying widths of roman types with several fun alternate capitals to choose from.
Based on the Lamina typeface by Em42. Made a rough 'A' glyph first as a test for the Reverse Competition but I had no time to get back to it before the deadline. I finished it anyway to see how the final outcome would be.

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.
This typeface was concevied two years ago and later shelved. Thought that it was still worth finishing so here it is. It's another take on the square dot matrix style that I did with the MinSha typeface back in 2010.
Inspired by Punk-esque, spray-painted, hip hop genre types, MX Wasgard is a take on that, using two varying sets of bubbly typefaces that can be merged together to create an overall dynamic type arrangement. Suitable to use in display sizes and subcultural materials.
Would also like to thank Meek for giving us the new thinner macaroni bricks so as to make this typeface possible! :D
