Cube alphabet

Based on the grid of an isometric cube outline, I created this alphabet design with the intention to use it for paper cuts as it's grid structure makes it simple to cut by hand.
Inspiration taken form the typeface 'Sol' by Radim Peško, seen at the 'Design Blast' conference at the ZMK, Karlsruhe (18.11.2011), and also from the 'Triso Typeface' by Ric Bell. I drew from these sources what I felt was most logical, important and appealing in the shape formations.
