trying to break the grid once more... composite is a great feature... still running into a lot of problems though. in had a great start with this one. i think the squeezed curves create great shapes but i don't know if it's worth creating upper case letters for. this is more like an extended experiment.
unfortunately spacing is aweful once again...

This has been in the making for quite some time and I was only able to work on it because of the new fontstruct features. all bricks i used for this fontstructions were half-sized bricks. i mean half-circles, half-sized blocks and so on. also i worked with 1.75 scaling. thanks to this kind of setup i was able to create roundings, that go a little over or below flat-shaped letters. see the sample. also lower case letter like l, k, h and so on are a little taller than upper case letters, like in "real" fonts.
the disadvantage is seen on M,W,m,w where the stem in the middle is a little too short... i had to use a very weird workaround for these 3-stem letters, so this is as good as it gets, unless fontstruct is going to have an empty space brick, that would allow me to create a fitting composite. i used lots of composites and lots of stacking. also the spacing isn't very nice, i'll see if i can do anything about that.

something i've been working on recently. i'm still looking for a solution to virtually increase my screen resolution, so i would have more grid space. i don't know if the line strength is consistent and i propably won't start with the capital letters until then. anyway i thought i might as well throw this in to see what you guys think about it so far.

it's been a long time since i released a fontstruction. today i felt like doing one again. it features smooth transitions from diagonals to roundings, notable on the S and Z.
