BASE GEOMETRIC SANS-SERIF

The principle of this type is the geometric forms and combinations. And the inpiration are from constructivism typography style. Injoy the little sample to take an idea.

Ricardo, your sample isn't showing up... Care to try again?

I started to devolopment this font by three years ago, I continue to adjust and finnished
this work, I m correcting the mistakes and lear about it. The principle of this type is the geometric forms and combinations. The inspiration are from the constructivism typography. This kind of source are very common and don't have creative interest but I designed to the challenge of the work and to used in some works.GIF / JPG:

Ricardo,

The face has the essence of a digital clock, which makes it somewhat unique among similar faces. (I'm especially referring to the B, K and X.)

Some of the symbols look awkward. The @ seems unnaturally forced and the greater-than and less-than don't really carry the essence of the face.

Nice work. I like that asterisk the best...

Ricardo,

Joe is right about the @. Perhaps it doesn't work
because the tiny triangles are a shape that isn't
found anywhere else in the font. Why not keep the
symbol squarish to maintain consistency?

While it's another LCD-digital-clock-calculator
face, I think it's one that hasn't been done
before. I thought the genre had been thoroughly
saturated, but you've managed to come up with
something new and appealing. Congrats.

I really like the sheared corners. It adds a unique twist to all the blockish faces we've seen in the past little while.

I have a few suggestions.

I would revisit the BKR and X. I think that there are some other solutions to these that would push it closer to the constructivist influence and further from the lcd influence. Maybe you could try dropping in a few diagonals. I like the direction you've taken with the lc v, for example (the angle on the uc V is a little steep, I think). The S looks a little blocky. Maybe it could be a bit narrower. The shoulder on the f seems a little clunky, and could be shortened as well as the tail on the j. You could also do the same with the tails of the g and the y if you wanted to, but it isn't really necessary. The uc Q could also use a different quill.

Good luck.

ps. the lc a is rad.

Ricardo sent this image to me - I think he was having a problem posting the image.
