Three fonts for review
0

These are my three latest fonts, I didn't want to make three seperate posts so put them all here. Let me know what you think.

A short description for each..

I really need a closer view to best view the detail on this. Anyway, this was a font that came to me from my sketch book. I like the way the two forms play off each other. I am anxious to use this somehow, but its going to be hard to find a good fit for it because it has such a different look to it.

A short and squatty font.

I am happy how this came out. It has a strange style going for it. I know its not perfect, however I kind of like it like that. However, if you have any ideas I'd be happy to hear them.

There you go. Any comments or suggestion welcome

Thanks,

Adam

Something seems to be wrong with the Aeon image. Firefox says:

"The image “http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y239/Jumpsuit/aeon.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors."

fyi. that aeon thing is really similar to some custom typography brody did for a cabaret voltaire album a hundred thousand years ago. can't remember which one, but i'd advise looking it up and studying his construction methods.

glyphobet: I will check on reloading that image. I am not sure why firefox has a problem with that particular file since I uploaded them all the same and in Safari it works fine, but I will see what I can do about that.

patricking: Could you get me an example of that font because I am really curious how that looks, I can't find anything that resembles my font by searching online.

found it, sort of. see attached image (shot with my phone at a friend's house, sorry so blurry). the symbol was broken up to form the word code on the back cover of the vinyl.

The firefox issue is most likely caused by a CMYK image instead of RGB.

Patricking, Sorry for the late response. I kind of see what your saying with the aeon typeface resembling, but not really. Has Brody constructed other letters like that, or is that the only one?

Lex: I agree, however I am not at my computer right now to change, but thanks for the advice.
