Most fonts are slight (yet visually distinct somehow) variations on the same overall shape. For example, the letter k is pretty much just that, a
| with a
< or something close to it. (Ignoring cursive for this post).
But I wonder what some example fonts are (or how to search for them generally) that diverge on some letters _significantly. For example, the letter
i always has the dot on top for the most part, but you could also do dotless
ı, or could go further and even try out something like
i. You wouldn't want to use
i because it's already an existing common symbol. But perhaps you could try out some other ones:
⌔, or even just
So then you would have:
You don't want to go so far and just make them arbitrary like this:
©௸࿌... (a b c ...)
You would still have them close to the original, but just go out a little further than normal.
I'm wondering if there are any popular examples of this with a readable font.
