Organica

Hello, everyone. I belong to the group of people who're showing their very first typeface on this forum . So here it is.. It is based on letterforms drawn with a brush on paper, which I then outlined and made more uniform. The inspiration behind the typeface was originally based on shapes in nature - the curves that occur in plants, leaves, etc (hence, the name "Organica"). It was conceived as imperfect, but based on aesthetically pleasing shapes, which strive for symmetry/ideal shape, but never quite reach it. Now that I'm simplifying the shapes more, it seems like it's evolving into an exploration of calligraphy, something humanist, done by hand (I just heard a great talk by Robert Bringhurst at the Design Thinkers in TO :-) ).

Please give me critique in this typeface- any kind of feedback will be very much appreciated.

Kristina. Organica

Never seen a "q" or "g" like that before, very original.
I think the name" organica" is taken. I can't place
where I have seen it, but do a bit of research before you stick with this name. Very nice work, reminds me of something Mark Von Bronkhorst/Kanna Aoki could have done back in the mid-90's (mvbfonts.com ). Could benefit from some unique ligatures.

Thank you for your comments. I will try to integrate some swashes/looping descenders into y and f and maybe other letters.. Making a typeface that is unnecessarily ornamental(if that's the right word here) was one of my concerns, so I will see how these changes work out..

And thanks for letting me know that the name was taken.. I should've done more research on that! :-)
