let horizontalStripe: Path = [[Point(x: 0, y: 600), Point(x: 1000, y: 600), Point(x: 1000, y: 400), Point(x: 0, y: 400)]]
let verticalStripe: Path = [[Point(x: 200, y: 800), Point(x: 400, y: 800), Point(x: 400, y: -200), Point(x: 200, y: -200)]]

If you draw the font at 20px, then 1000 FUnits = 20px, so 50 FUnits = 1px. All the coordinates above are on multiples of 50 FUnits.
