Alien Geometric is an experimental typeface based on specific constraints assigned to every stroke, bar,counter, and curve such that every instance translates to a triangle, dot, circle, or vertical or horizontal line. The varying x-heights between the straight and curved elements of each letter, makes the words feel unbalanced and harder to read than they already are. They guide the eye vertically through the words, while the reader tries to make his way horizontally down the line.
The individual glyphs were designed on paper, digitized with Adobe Illustrator, and developed into a typeface with FontForge

Alphabet sketches from which letters were developed.
