Experimental display type created in Illustrator.

BUILDING BLOCKS by christapherwayne
The intention was to make a typeface with only the most crucial elements of each letter represented, all while fitting each into a uniform size to allow no-brainer kerning, and uniform line lengths. Some embellishments, like curved corners, were added to make it feel a little more friendly.

Spaces should not be used. This is not really made to convey information clearly so the user should be willing to let go and let the message make it to the reader if they are willing to take the time to decipher.

The set on the right side is an attempt to get a more even colour in the large sets of type.

Other notes:
- The 'I' is set so that, if needed aesthetically, it can be flipped to make it more bottom heavy or to match with the counters of surrounding letters; e.g "C-I-S"
- The 'X' is problematic and I am trying to find a more elegant solution for it.
-No punctuation or numbers are planned, but I may add them once I get a few weights made
-Please ask before using in any work. I will be more than happy to allow you to use it if you email me for permission and give credit.

I found this via NOTCOT and I really tought it was a great typo, it's somehow different and even if very hard to read, it has some potential when used with some head. Ideal for some titles or logos, it is really good. Maybe some more work on that typeface and you can get yourself a powerhouse typo.

Keep with that good work, I'll be looking up for more works of you from now on ;)

(PS: I simply love the way Q & U match ^^, it's damn sexy!)
