This fs may be used on it's own, but it is designed to be used in conjunction with fs Stack Overflow so any two letters may be stacked one on top of another to create interesting word shapes and unconventional flow.
It looks simple but the execution was surprisingly involved. The idea was to do the letters in as few bricks as possible. Filters. 1.75...to be exact. Again, the geometry did not work out because custom bricks had to be formed to create the fine breaks and they did not line up with the assumed filter. A little bit of algebra later (yes kids, algebra does help in real life) 1.6 was determined as the proper filter setting.
Having built the letters as desired, with many a tweak before finalization, it was on to Overflow, which necessitated a reduction of the letters in half. That was easier said than done because of the filters. Some of the letters just did not translate exactly at half scale at 1.6 filter. Had to scrap the whole thing.
The only option remaining was to double the size and use the double size glyphs for Stack and move the existing Stack glyphs to Overflow. Doubling allowed finer glyph construction. Plenty of diversions later, what came out as reasonable was a strict following of my own grid. Figures.
It is now to the point where I can send it out in the world. I must do that before I do the sample because both thalamic and minimum accounts give a 500 Server Error when attempting a download. Luckily, I have yet another secret account which I will use to attempt download. I hope that works because I am in no mood to build words by taking screenshots and copy/pasting individual letters.
This was supposed to be a simple idea with a simple execution. It should not have taken this long. I'm really curious to see how successful the idea was. Here goes...

Please check out the samples, as the thin inlines don't really show up in the preview window. Inspired by Ribbon by Daniel Gneiding and will.i.ૐ's experiments with brickstacking, composits and filters.

A family of fonstructions: nine parametric variations in four weights utilizing advanced filters and bleeding-edge composite stacks.
Most excitingly, overshoots are tackled with a combination of vertical filtering and composite bricks. Enjoy a private clone to see how it’s done.This is a clone

I tried my hand at stacking blocks to create the smallest allowable font. However, the S and Z were too tricky to confine to one pixel...

Clone of Pixel Serif. Other versions of this would be appreciated. Filter at 1.8 x 1.8 and replace squares with a composite and/or stacked brick.This is a clone of Pixel Serif

More fun with composite stacks, packing more detail into smaller grids. The crosshatching is made less regular by alternating and rotating a set of three four similar, yet distinct bricks. correction made on 2/15This is a clone of Fat Bit

Restrained to simple forms. Nothing fancy, just nice constructivism. Good for display and reduces in size well. Maintains consistent widths; great for letter stacking typography.
