Structure A, 2015

'Structure A' is a typeface that fits the square grid of the Open Structures system. Not quite a real monospaced, the glyphs of this typeface are not all the same width, but they maintain a strict but irregular rhythm. Every anchor and control point lies on the square grid. All letters can be built out of the 8 basic parts (curves and straight lines)

To allow for extra variation in the text, the font doesn't contain any uppercase characters, but plenty of lowercase alternatives and ligatures.

The "simple" variant creates a more monospaced like text.
