New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hey, I am currently a student in my second typography class. We have been working on a font for the past 6 weeks, and I am to the point where I am ready to input it into a font software. However, I wanted to put it out there first for a critique
This is my first font, so any and all feedback is very much appreciated.
My inspiration for this font is from a Celtic writing style mixed with a Modern typestyle (Didot being my primary reference.) While most of the Celtic touches have disappeared during revisions, a few touches still remain.
I am mostly looking for consistency between the letterforms, however all comments and suggestions will be helpful.
Anyways, I am looking forward to some outside opinion. I have been staring at these letters for so long that I tend to not see the flaws until someone points them out to me.
Because I have not put it into the font software yet, I am not including entire paragraphs of text. However, I did hand set a quote in three different sizes, so I am including that as well as the upper and lowercase. I have the numbers and most of the punctuation and special characters drawn and inside the computer, but they are not cleaned up yet, so I am not including them.
For the time being, this font is called Taurine, named after the main ingredient consumed while creating it, hope you enjoy.
