King - Casino Playing Card inspired
0

I've been chipping away at this. Based on the large letters on playing cards for Casinos. Usage will be for nightclub flyers and posters.

I know the B is wonky and the N needs to be widened. Any comments most welcome!

Careful, you've almost xeroxed Rockwell there. Look to the existing font for ideas on how to improve King and give it its own identity.

Yep Rockwell definitley an influence, but it's more cursive than mine. The slabs on mine are pure regtangles whereas Rockwells are adjusted optically. Mine isn't for text setting so I don't need to do that.

Check out the differences here:

Plus I hope to develop alternates for the characters.

Cheers.
