This font combines two simple ideas and puts them together. Braille and color theory.

I had a long time been holding on to this font (about 2 years) but decided that maybe someone out there would like it.  Its complicated, in a way, but can end up being the most compressed "barcode" I have ever seen. (With the average letter taking up approximately 2 pixels when used in its "second form" but we will get into that later.

As with many of my fonts, is rooted in braille. So a knowledge in braille is neccesary. (Braille is very very easy to learn)

So heres the nuts and bolts.  Lets take a 3 letter word in braille, say, "ice"

    o| oo| o
o    |    |    o

i        c      e

in of itself it takes three braille spots, but, what if we were to use color theory to compress it?
the first letter would be red, the second in yellow, the third in blue? You could have them occupy the same place and have no loss of information! Anywhere red overlapped the yellow, it would be orange, anywhere yellow overlapped blue it would be green! etc.
so, "Ice" could now be expressed as
            green, orange
              red,    blue
The word "Ice" is conveyed in a 2x2 packet of colored pixels!

Which brings me to my font. "Rybian" (a play on words of "RedYellowBlue-ian" is a colorless way of expressing that same form.

red is a horizontal line
yellow is a circle
blue is a verticle line

so, logically, orange would be a circle with a horizontal line in it
green would be a circle with a verticle line in it
purple would be a verticle and horizontal line

Heres a visual sample of a longer example "Harry potter" and how it breaks down visually along with each layer seperated to further understand how this works. You dont have to have the "lines and circle" form of it be colored, but I thought I'd do it there just so that you could more easily understand.

Hi, I just wanted to update the "Harry Potter" example picture that is below.  Some of the spacing is a little questionable, I cannot seem to delete it, so just ignore the top one and just pay attention to this one.
