This is my ﬁrst font posted this year, and it’s long overdue. Here’s what I have so far. Currently it resides in Illustrator, and hasn’t been fontiﬁed yet. At this stage I’m trying to decide whether to keep it a stencil face. Any other thoughts?
I think what you have so far is quite interesting. I don’t mind it being a stencil face, but I think you need to change the stencil gaps a bit so it doesn’t just look like a “font with a line through each letter”. Paul
It makes me think of House Industries for some reason. I’d check out there collection for direction. http://www.houseindustries.com
Paul — good call on the serifs. I did away with them for now. Jim, I enjoy the House collection a great deal, but I was hoping for more speciﬁc suggestions, such as comments on individual glyphs. Anyway, here’s version 2:
Er, the stencils.
i think it’s great. for the most part, the letters are top-heavy, and it makes the whole set look fun and quirky. i like it a lot. what about a small-caps set?
Actually, Loren, you inspired me to do a LC set. Not exactly small caps, but maybe worth the eﬀort… Needless to say, it’s still in Illustrator.
I’m not sold on the X — looks a little wide.
Dactylic — The Adventure Continues. Marc: Yeah, that X was weak. But I redid it and completed the (basic 52) character set. Thanks for the input! I really like the way it’s evolving. Check it out:
