safehouse/crackhouse new fontstructions

safehouseweb

Two new small grid fontstructions I made in FontStruct. Safehouse is a minimal stencil font. Basics only: lowercase, numerals and some punctuation. The new spacing controls in FontStruct were a major help here: working in this small grid means that the vertical ‘stencil gap’ in each letter is as wide as the remaining strokes, so slightly widening the letter spacing makes it all more readable, albeit on the limit. Although the letterforms are almost falling apart, this little extra control made the experiment acceptable to me.
Crackhouse is the dirty version. Fun & streetwise.
