Centurystile (Eurostile + Eames Century Modern)

danielwilber's picture

Greetings.

I was given the assignment of creating a 'typographic offspring' of two existing fonts. I chose Eurostile & Eames Century Modern to create a sort of 'Americana-Thick-Meets-Outer-Space-Clean' kind of display face. If you could give me any suggestions or critique for what I've got so far, that would be great!

Interesting choice. The result is still too much (or not enough, depending on the goal) Frankentein-ish.
By the way, have you seen this?

Hmm. Well, it's kind of all over the place and still clearly a chimera. Problems of weight distribution aren't applied consistently. I think if you started with a lighter weight, like medium, you would have more success blending the features together. It would give you room to exhibit the squareness of Eurostile in letters like n where there is no room to do so now.
