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.

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.
