Any help would be appreciated, and feel free to be brutal!
I'm trying to make a poster-sized fat face that has its base in the geometrics that Non-Format and such use, but with a feminine and humanist feel (e.g. Odile). I started out trying to add this curly bifurcated serif, and have been steadily trying to calm it down, but am definitely getting stuck.
Commentary I've already received -- add countershapes .... I'm reluctant to do this, because I feel it loses a bit of the power and contemporary feel. It feels like it starts to go cartoony, Gills Sans UltraBold territory. To do small dots, like Christian Robertson's TypeBattle 28/Defiant doesn't seem to fit here either.
But maybe I'm wrong. Anyways, feel like I'm just nudging around without making a bold move, so any insights would be great, thanks!!!!!!
