I decided to set a basic challenge for myself - to design a display system based on a 3x3x3 isometric cube.

The two main rules that I identified were that:

  • all characters must fit within the 3x3x3 cube (even wide letters such as M and W) 

  • each character must only use two faces to describe itself (effectively forming a
    3x5 grid to work within - because the edge between the two faces operates as a single row of 3D cubes)

The M and the W were certainly the hardest to describe with such a low resolution, but they can be deciphered in context.

Anyway, here's how they came out.
