Lets Discuss

this is very clever! i have a suggestion: what if you make the black letters edges rounded where they meet the white ones. and it would look better smaller and with a nice color background. :D

that would certainly make a unique alphabet, also a very intelligent design concept

@ andreiu: that's a good idea. Would make it look more like flesh and bone. Take it one step further TimKim! Good conceptual thinking here.

Sorry, but in my opinion the only letter that works (so far) is the N.

I can see what barryconvex is saying. The "N" still represents an "N" without the bone-like serif font inside it, but the others might not, except for the "B", but I didn't find the execution of the "B" very interesting. The "S" works, but could've been better... The "O" reads as a "U", t

Clever idea. The mix of serif/san serif works well. There's some room for improvement, but love where this is going.

I appreciate the feedback! It is far from done and can't wait to show the final product.

The concept is fantastic. It's one of those you see and think "damn! I wish i'd thought of that"
Well done!

LUUUUUV it! i have a suggestion! how about you use some kind of color scheme or effect that refers to xray vision? maybe some subtle glow and hints of green? just a suggestions. but i truly love it!

timkim

@emesghali Yep! I am doing that for the refinement as well as additional pieces in this series. :)

great idea. this haves some font history meaning. first there were serif classic fonts and than helveticas.
but, since it is for fun, i would suggest red helvetica type (meat) and black background.

Love this concept. How about a red oval shap at the end of each bold letterform where the bone protrudes from. This would give it some simple dimension to flesh this one out.
