Hello.
I know that this is maybe forum for the developing the typefaces. But I´ve just finished her after more than 2 and half year.
Deva Ideal is also greeting and sending type kisses to Typophile!

Ján that is quite inspirational. Congratulations. Can you write a little bit about your process perhaps? What was the most difficult aspects of your design for instance? With such a large character set in that many cuts, some things must have been difficult to squeeze in there, yet it look so effortless.

The most difficult was to create the aesthetic of the typeface. It should be legible, but also unique. To choose, how these "bent strokes" should looks like. If they should be more visible, how they should bent. And also create the proportions of typeface (now i don´t mean the ideal proportion i used for metrics, but the harmony of characters) that will be unique.

For these two things, according to other readable sans serif, the feeling from typesetting is very soft. I thing this is more possible to see when you print her.

To expand character set, or create more styles was to invest a really much into creating them. I spend a lot of time on every character. And be very patient.
