New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I don't post here very often, but when I do, you know, I do.
So. I had an idea that, so far, has proven popular among typographic types: Cleaning Trajan.
The typeface is probably one of the oldest, dating back to the Roman Era (but not one of the oldest fonts),
the trouble I find with using Trajan at large sizes is that many of the glyphs appear uneven and raggedy through
a combination of it having been translated to computer before the modern day wizardry we have access to today
and the age of the typeface itself. Though I suspect that the guy who first carved this typeface was very, very
precise about it.
So my intention is to re-do the outline and tidy it up a bit. I'm not sure if this has already been done, but it's
been fun to do so far.
I'm already receiving positive feedback and critique from some of the communities I inhabit and the two
attachments are pre-feedback, but it gives you a general idea.
