REKORD is slowly growing up...
0

I've done a lot of work on [[http://typophile.com/node/40757|Rekord]] recently, so I thought I'd share it with you. Since it has developed so much, I thought I'd start a new thread in the sans-serif section. The new Rekord will, if all goes well, be a six-weight family with italics, and be available later this year (after I've finished [[http://vllg.com/Incubator/Tram#panel=poster|Tram]], which is more than overdue).

Also, Rekord is the new typeface used by [[http://rpho.nl/|Rotterdam's Philharmonic Orchestra]], which I'm very happy about. More can be seen here: [[http://www.gergievfestival.nl/|Gergiev Festival]]

There's still a lot to do and refine, but so far I'm happy with the development... and curious to hear what you think.

Cheers,
Hanno

This is brilliant! I love it. Couls you have a look at my 'expletus' post?

Looking great! I'm weary of techno fonts but this is very lively and interesting, and carefully crafted. The bolder weights have a bit of early Soviet poster aesthetic to my eyes.
On the alternates, I really dislike the M's and N's (but of course, as alternates I'd be free to ignore them).
For the diagonal alts, did you consider making that change in angle a bend rather than a rigid angle?
The figures look like credit-card numbers to me. I wonder if six and nine can somehow partake of the interesting diagonals that are the typeface's signature (e.g. P/R).

Hello Hanno,

I think you have to rename your typeface because the name Rekord is already taken:

Good one Lex! :-)
Another option could be “Ricordo” (Italian for “memory”)
