This is to continue discussion from this thread.
I proposed as a draft of an Irish-style mediuscule sans alphabet:
As one can see it is not meant as an adaption or revival of some known older Irish typeface. But rather as a reinterpretation of Irish type on the sans ‘instrument’. An experiment, though.
Michael Everson then was so kind to comment like follows:
I find it a bit chilly, but I guess that's OK, as the font is a bit chilly. I dislike the W rather a lot. The hard angle at the lower left of the b is inauthentic. The hard angle at the top left of the F is inauthentic too; follow the f. Same for capital B and L. The ascenders of capital B, H, K, L rise above caps height in many Gaelic fonts.
*Chilly* – yes! This ought to be chilly. (Maybe this is due to the climate, we have 32…38°C in Central Germany these days… )
I followed his remarks to quite an extend; see what changed in the next version:
And now it looks that way:
The b issue is rather obvious. Also the rounding of L. The ascenders of capital B F H K L (P?) are to consider. As you see I did not make them strech above the Capitals height. There are neccessary descenders already and also having ascenders in the uppercase would make the set too disturbed, I believe. However, I changed the angles into offsprings and that may well appear more Irish now.
