Here’s one approach I’m trying, using shape instead of line. How minimal a shape can I make before you can’t recognize the letter? One thing to consider is that if a problematic letter is in context, i.e. in a word, that will mitigate its illegibility. Other consideration: If the angles pointing inside are to long and sharp, you get floppy peninsulas. If that wasn’t an issue, these would be really easy. But it is, and so is the fact that all closed counters, eyes, etc. are filled in. Sort of a tribute to my friend David Z. from Santa Cruz who hand-cut his text on the fly and never bothered to make bridges for closed letters like R, B, D, A and the rest. Potential name: Lazy Vandal. There will be two versions, lazy and extra lazy. Extra lazy will look more like the glyphs in the photo. Lazy will be a little more complex, with multiple shapes making up the glyphs.

Second draft for Lazy Vandal

I did this draft during a morning lab shift.
