Here’s a concept i’ve been kicking around for years: to design a few basic shapes that can be rotated and flipped around to create all of the letters and numbers. ⁠

The results are kinda primitive & kinda sci-fi, and I end up coming back to it whenever I’m sketching designs for a sci-fi logo. ⁠

None of these logos have ever been chosen, so perhaps it’s actually a bad idea for a font. But this is a good week for bad ideas! Off I go.⁠

I like to work with groups of similarly-shaped letters…
