    DIN's unmodified S (far right) isn't feeling geometric enough for the rest of the very square characters in my name so I've been playing with some alternatives. The mirrored and rotated 2 (right) is too sophomoric. As is the mirrored Z (far left). The middle S feels too Star Wars.

    I think the S that's been grafted with the C (left, below the slash) strikes a balance between geometric reduction and the natural letterform.

    If I could edit a previous comment I would probably change "grafted with the C" to "grafted with the terminals of a C" for extra precision.

    +1 for grafted C. Excellent.

    Having a bit of DIN obsession? It is a lovely font so I completely forgive you :)

    DIN is indeed lovely — I've always been obsessed with it, even though I went through a few years of *not* using it because I felt (for some silly reason) that I shouldn't stick to one typeface for so many things...

    Hence, http://makephotoshopfaster.com uses DIN :)

    Try adapting the Trade Gothic Condensed S to DIN's shapes. might give you the S you are looking for.
