This is my font, called Virus. The idea was to juxtapose thick, semi-organic marks with thin rectilinear lines to create a technological feel. Any comments would be appreciated.
Kind of reminds me of DNA slides. The differentiation between letters is kinda low. I'm trying to figure out if i can read them because I know the alphabet or because the characters are actually legible. Can you print some titles out and so we can see how it works? Graham
May have to change name, as Virus is already used as a font name
I think a name change is fine because I think you should take another look at it. It feels way more analog to me than you give it credit. It reminds me of those snap apart pieces that you might find in a model kit. -smc
Sorry it took awhile to reply, I was on spring break without my computer. I changed the name slightly to avoid copyright issues. Hopefully it is clear enough to read, optimizing it doesn't keep integrity. Obviously, this is about as small as it would be used. If you'd like to see a larger version, let me know.
I liked what Graham said about it looking like DNA markings... I almost wonder if MORE analog would be better?
the letterforms Looks a bit like ribosomes as well. Would it be possible to open the counter width of the O up the same as the U?
