I began this fontstruction as a challenge to create a seriffed pixel font with grid characteristics similar to iSlab’s 8 pt setting (bearing an x-height of four pixels). This inspiration began with similar shapes and roots as its predecessor, but evolved from there once it quickly became clear that those shapes really could not be reproduced with strict pixels.
Then I went on a bender creating the katakana and hiragana character set.
Then I went crazy with filters and single brick substitution.
