New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Well, It is definitely not done yet, but I have been working some time on it in my Font Design class at Art Center College of Design (in Pasadena, CA).
I wasn't really referencing any specific grotesques when first designing it, but if I had to describe it in any way, i'd have to say it is a grotesque that takes some contemporary liberties, and has a little Franklin Gothic/ Monotype Grotesque/ Akzidenz Grotesk feel to it (not that any of those typefaces are that similar, but id say my typeface has some similar characteristics).
I'd love to hear what everyone has to think. Still much more to go, but i'm hoping that after this semester doing an independent study with a great teacher and type designer named Leah Hoffmitz I can have the full character set in 1 weight fleshed out. Any feedback is welcome!
