Abstract alphabet

A few years ago I wanted to design an alphabet you couldn't read - yet could.  I worked on one where each letter was formed with the same number of strokes that would form the Roman capital version - they were just placed differently and curved in most instances.

This is what I came up with.  It possibly has few more refinements to go; but I like it.  I'll show you how I've used it another day...

    This alphabet is interesting and very dynamic. It's nice.

  3. Thanks for your thoughts - it's got a lot of life and movement and a sense of playfulness as well I think. Good to occasionally break out!



I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
