Brilliant like a morning star!

I was working in something like this, but yours is beautiful and makes me let mine out. Convergent thinking once again, compañero. I'm gonna try another way.

Thanks @time.peace, @thalamic, @Echo Heo, @Hensley Dodson and @user-juli!

Thank you @elmoyenique, I am looking forward to your competition entry/entries! Please don't abandon your project, I think it has the potential of a very good (and different) font.

Well... I'm having a bit of a hard time finding some good and pretty ideas that capture the spirit of the 20s... Don't worry, that's the challenge, right?. Thanks, compa.

@four: A fantastic entry to the competition. 10/10

@elmoyenique: You may consider several artistic movements from the period (the 1920s).

1. Russian constructivism: the works of El Lissitzky, Alexander Rodchenko and others.

2. Bauhaus: A.M. Cassandre: Bifur (1927) is a good inspiration.

3. Dadaism: it's complicated. (You are not the sort of iconoclastic type.)

4. Art Deco: Broadway (by M.F. Benton, 1927) is a good start.

5. Cooper Black (by Oswald B. Cooper, 1922). Beate already used it as inspiration.

6. Futura Black (a stencil by Paul Renner, 1929)

7. Preissig Antiqua (by Vojtech Preissig, 1925)

There are a lot more, but that's a start. Good luck Elmo.

El Lissitzky? I love their abstract art…

@Frodo7: Thank you, Maestro, you are always so generous. I'm already underway.
