I’ve been attempting to teach myself type design but don’t see any point in learning about kerning pairs, hinting…etc until I have some letterforms I’m actually satisfied with. After playing around with the enclosed for ages, I feel like I am going round in circles. The idea was to do a sans with roman proportions and I started out doing a skeleton using Sabon, then thickened everything in Freehand and re-did the branch connections/line intersections and tried to optically compensate all the horizontal bits. Basically I’m not completely happy with the letters and not sure they work together properly, but can’t quite figure out why. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
