Decorative experimental letters drawn around XX pattern.
I finally made a folded-/ribbon-style design. This one contains a number of experimental techniques. Most notably, the swept parts of glyphs are allowed to extend beyond the letterwidths and sometimes even the baselines. This enhances the sense of movement, creates some interesting linkages, and reduces the need for kerning.
All of these shapes can be constructed with paper or ribbon, although lots of clever folding tricks, doubling, and pinning down/securing with glue would be required.
Alternate tilde on "±".
Chamadarya is an Integral Artifice (synthetic universe) I created for the ESOSVM simulation in 2013. It's a place dominated by vast stretches of open sky punctuated by extremely tall mesas and plateaus. Most of the buildings and temples there are made from chrysoberyl, which is extensively engraved, often with a lettering style that looks much like this. Of course, that language is non-Latin so it looks nothing like this design.
Another folded style.
There is a number of glyphs I would've rather seen different, like for example G, V, Y, 4, maybe 7. And the punctuation is very poorly done too. But I got kind of stuck and didn't know where to take it any further,
Here is my take on Scaffo Stencil.This is a clone of Scaffo Stencil
A continuation of ideas present in Technokratz, with some imagination added for good measure!
This creates new ambigrams and ambiguous words. Here are a few that I found:
AND = ROD
FACE = FREE
FONT = FROM
FOX = HOT
FREE = TREE
INTO = TOMB
LAY = EAT
PHYSICS = EXISTES
SOLD = SAID
TECH = MECH/MEEK/NECK
THE = AXE
TOXIC = MOXIE
VICTORINOX = LAWSUIT (hah, just kidding)
WATER = TAMER
YEATS = TEAMS
Since I like this ambiguity so much, I will keep working to make letters resemble other letters even more! The real trick is finding these synergies while still preserving enough variability in forms that things can still be read flawlessly.
5x5 font with a distorted, skewed, or glitched look about it. Plays well with actual glitch effects.
Segmented display + Pixel art + Embroidery stitch = this.
"Acanthi Requiem" = "Antique Chimera".
Original size: 8pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
