a quick dirty display face here is an swf
^ It’s very geometric, yet it has brush undertones. While I was building factory I started to manufacture fonts based on the factory template. I was thinking of all the small foundries that are doing retro/tech fonts. This exercise started out as a parody, but there’s some super cool stuﬀ. Some are more successful than others. In this case, the process interests me as much as the product. Click here for More >
one thing that i see is the “C” might be better oﬀ with the back side a straight line like the “G” & “O”. other than that i dig all the diﬀerent styles you have give this one face. lets see more, maybe numbers and minimal punct.?
nice face! i like the way you’ve solved the D, maybe that should be the basis for the C, G, O, Q and maybe even the E. i really like the Y in the space girl version. and yes, numbers and scandinavian characters would indeed be interesting to look at.
I have a confession: Most of my fonts live only in illustrator. So I dusted oﬀ fontographer, cussed a little as I tried to make it work in os x, and put together a type 1 font. I have polished up a little and tried to get some decent kerning, spacing etc. Here is the font suitcase of the caps only. Any suggestions will be welcomed.
Glad to see you back, post honeymoon. This is exciting. This is a Typophile ﬁrst. Dare I say an internet ﬁrst? (Ahem, oﬀering the actual face for download and testing.) I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that it’s coming from you. It was with this in mind that we created the “Build” critique in the “Ascenders” membership class. The goal is to create an area where font ﬁles are made available for testing by trusted peers as faces get developed.
Hmm. For some reason the board wanted to add a .unk extension to this ﬁle. After downloading it, I changed the extension to .sit and was able to open the archive without a problem.
I like it a lot, Christian. It has a very Obey Giant feel for me, but that’s not a bad thing at all. The “Factory Serif Slim” is too Chank for me, however. The main face is pretty cool and I think you should go that route, very industrial, cyrillic-esque.
