    Where’s the X?

  2. today and tomorrow - pieter Says:

    X? What X?

  3. BANK - Das Patent « Pasa la vida Says:

    […] Vía today and tomorrow […]

  4. OG Style Says:

    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVW “X” YZ

  5. John Guggenheim Says:

    The B, E, F, K and Z are really not all that great. The F and K in particular won’t be recognized as a letter outside of this context. Also, the X is missing.

    Makes for an interesting study, but it isn’t finished yet. There is more to explore!

  6. today and tomorrow - pieter Says:

    Seriously!!! The X is missing!!!
    I can’t believe it, no one noticed it till now!

    pieter turns sarcasm off again

  7. ugo Says:

    I find it very clever that a single shape would work for the entire alphabet. The X is not there but the again who needs the X?
    xenophobe? => zenophobe
    wax? => waks
    exactly => ekzactly
    exam => ekzam (ok this one looks and sound like Shazam!)

    see X is so last year… ;)

  8. Jesse Says:

    The K actually looks more like an X then a K if you ask me…

  9. person man Says:

    There’s no sex without X! Who needs it indeed.

    Also the I only looks like an I because it’s in sequence.

  10. John Guggenheim Says:

    Pieter, you had a shot at perhaps getting some rather nice gallery time (see my website). Your sarcasm and uncalled for attitude has taken that away. Perhaps something to think about.

  11. today and tomorrow - pieter Says:

    John, I thought that my second comment would have cleared that whole “there is no X” issue. I didn’t want to offend you or anyone. Your comment is definitely one of the best ones here, I mean it.
    But are you sure that you are who you say you are? Or is there a new Guggenheim in The Netherlands?

  12. What? Says:

    I think it’s fine. Where are you guys finding this “><” looking letter. I don’t even have that on my keyboard.

  13. MoJoBang Says:

    What about that “R”? I think it’s impressive.

    If you must make an “><” just use the ” i “. twice.

  14. Maxim Says:

    maybe they sold out (XXX)

  15. Sauron Says:

    Guys, the x isn’t “missing”. It’s German, which doesn’t use x anymore for any native words. So while it’s *technically* part of the alphabet it’s effectively not.

    I needs it! No X, no cookie!

    ~X

    I love the way the W looks!

    […] Update: Iain has set me straight. Apparently it’s one solid shape that you can turn to create all the letterforms except X  Shows it quite well here.  […]

  19. neoneyelyts Says:

    It is so cool. I am much pretty amazed with that thing. You can create any letter except for the letter X.
    However, Letter K is not so clear. It looks like the hand of a praying mantis.
