which v to choose?
0

Hey everybody,

Me again. Here's three different v's. In case you haven't noticed yet, the difference is in width. Hope you can tell me wich one looks best to you. I think the choice is between the first and second, but I put the original (third) also in the picture. When I judge things like this I usually take some steps back before I look at it. Is ther anything else (except printing and squeezing eyes) I might do for better judgement?

cheers,

Jasper de Waard

I agree, that it is between the first and second.

Why don't "v" and "i" have any smooth corners?
See Stag Sans for thorough integration of the feature at many weights.

Or stencil breaks?

They look like the come from a different typeface.

2nd 'v' and I agree with Nick's comments about it needing a stencil break and the 'i' needing a rounded corner — something to integrate them with the rest of the characters.
