i’d like to present my ﬁrst, from the scratch on self made font. she’s called wallﬂower (i think it’s a she)
i designed her on screen (and on paper of course), but in the further development i’ll try to cut the letters from wood and make a set of wooden stencils at about 300pts.
i decided to use the shapes of a sans, based on a renaissance antiqua as an opposite to most stencil fonts i know, which have allways a very hard, brutal and often army look. for the same reason i only drew lowercase.
when painted on a wall it should look nice, not like vandalism, to let the message be heard.
she’s slightly slanted to give her the attitude of spoken word.
perhaps she is in general to light, but i think at 300pts it could work. a huge problem is the spacing because in wood, there is no kerning. therefore i have to keep it quite loose.
well, those are my thoughts, please tell me yours!
and if my english was too bad to explain the idea, just ask.
