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

raja said on May. 12 '10

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

campfire said on May. 12 '10

@ 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.

very clever :)

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

Mikeymike said on May. 13 '10

me likes. :) clever concept.

Jeiji said on May. 13 '10

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.

TernaciousT said on May. 13 '10

Nicely done!

timkim said on May. 13 '10

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

McGuire Design said on May. 13 '10

Very smart and great execution.

theartistt said on May. 13 '10

I agree, round the edges, but this is ubber cool.

richard bell said on May. 14 '10

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

andrebomfim01 said on May. 14 '10

awesome! this is a "wish I had done" king of work!

jf said on May. 14 '10

Love this. Great work!

wilsonink said on May. 14 '10

why didn't i think of this ? you make me jealous!

abrauf said on May. 15 '10

davishama said on May. 15 '10

Excelente!!! simple and good concept!!!! :D

emesghali said on May. 20 '10

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 said on May. 20 '10

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

petar k said on May. 24 '10

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.

danstewart said on Jun. 07 '10

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.

julium said on Aug. 04 '10

WOW! Really clever concept!
