Naranja - a completely unreadable monospace disaster from Alexander Kominek

This font has a limited number of uses - as you can see from the sample, text is not one of them.

I used only quarter-circle arcs and L-shaped brackets in a rigid grid to create this face.

The dingbats symbolise "A Clockwork Orange" (where the text comes from). The gear is inspired by a cover from one of the editions of this book.

you're right, it's more or less unreadable, but it's also kind of rad. More in keeping with the movie than the book, but it's got kind of a Nadsat feel to it just the same.

Yeah - I don't know why, but the face reminded me of oranges. Maybe it's the a - it kind of looks like a leaf that you'd see on a box of orange juice. The angles make it seem more mechanical, so ACO seemed like a fit.

I'm thinking of making a lighter weight, and maybe a bold and a heavy.

The text in the pdf reminds me of a handwritten note in a strange way, however the m,v, w and the numerals are really tricky to read.

You could invent one more rule or option to employ to open it up to more use or easier reading. I like it.
