"Fun fact: I actually took a class on how to write in Gothic before I could speak English."
"The macaroni brick can be replaced by the new macaroni tile. But it doesn't come in any of the colors that the other pieces come in. So I stuck with the brick."

"To me, the LEGO DNA is about inspiring people to learn and create with their hands. Here I’ve chosen to depict these two words in Braille, which empowers the visually handicapped by allowing them to read with their fingers."


I love how the new round tiles allow for more organic shapes. The Braille dots also happen to look like the nucleus and other structures within a cell. :)"

"Hello, I’m Clark Taylor, an AFOL from Germany “specialized” in micro builds. I made the font in stud.io (and cheated a little bit, by using macaroni bricks instead of tiles, since part 27925 is still not implemented in stud.io). I hope you like it and I’m looking forward to see the other entries! Have a nice evening."

"Using the new curved tiles, I've recreated the font TLG has used over the years for the logos of their Duplo, Quatro, Baby, and Primo lines. While the lack of a 3x3 curve tile prevents building solid bubble letters, the variety of curved tile radii available makes it easy enough to create beautiful curved outlines. Filling the loops with colorful 2x2 round tiles continues the theme. TLG's logos provided a template for most but not all of the 7 letters. The "a" required a bit of simplification in the corner to work with the available pieces. The "g" and the "n" could be mostly interpolated from features of the "q" and the "m". The biggest challenge was the "e" because the loops and curves are tighter than any of the letters in TLG's logos. To keep the scale and style comparable to the other letters, I squeezed the line width down to one stud on the top and bottom of the upper loop. I'm looking forward to expanding this font with other tricky letters (like the "k") and using it for a MOC at BrickFair Virginia this summer."

  1. This is an excellent and creative collection in what was already a high standard set by the other posts. Makes my entry look a little mundane. Well done all who have entered! I especially like the tron, duplo, and Braille fonts, but some of the more regular styles in all collections are also very stylish. Such a great idea for a competition.

    1. I agree Alan. My entries are ho-hum now too. Pretty sure a winner will emerge from this bunch. :)
