This is nuetron, a working title for a font inspired by Andreas Lindholm's industrial work. The lower specimen is perhaps a cleaner, more effective face, but offers fewer original elements. L through o, for example.
The top variant is the direction I want to go in, really dive into the chaotic, you know? But I suspect there are too many sub-elements to keep everything looking like a family. Look at the rounded corners clashing with the angled ones. Then add the battling angles of the w, o, and x, and. That x is giving my fits. Character widths seem to be difficult here, for me too.
I'll keep trying to make the upper version work, but in the meantime, does anyone have any help to offer?
As with Atom, once I get everything in order with this face, I'll shrink it down 50% and produce a more traditional screen font.
