Intimacy & Urgency
0

Good day.

I have attached my two new fonts, each with a variation. The first is Intimacy, based off of handwriting samples & writing to another slowly & creating a closness between reader & writer. The second is Urgency, based off fast paced daily life & the need to get information across quickly. Please let me know which characters are working & which are not. Thank you.

I think the Urgency cut is a lacking some intimacy.  :-)

For example if the Intimacy cut has a monocular “a”, probably the Urgency shouldn’t have a binocular one. And generally, quicker writing is more fluid, not less.

You might consider just swapping their “slantedness”.

Hrant, Tiffany: urgency doesn’t imply hurried. I think think what Jessica is getting at with ‘Urgency’ is the need to clearly and carefully letter important information. These designs reminded me of the notes my mother used to leave for me: not in their style, but because Very Important Information was always written very carefully in neatly formed, generously proportioned ‘printing’, while the stuff around it was in her normal writing.

For me, “intimacy” seems more urgent, and the “urgency” seems more intimate. Why? Because if you are in a hurry, you probably won’t take the time to draw out the details. And I also think that “urgency” should be slanted. Very fun however.
