New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
On sunday I felt I needed to create a typeface to be able to live with myself. From scratch and in absence of any direct influence. Here's what it has become so far.
What my purpose for this typeface is:
-Relatively big x-height (attenuation of hierarchy)
-Some caps with similitude to the lowercase (e.g B, C, D, P, R) (attenuation of hierarchy)
-Semi Serif with more contrast (without resembling Rotis)
-Combine modulation of stroke with a geometric feel
-Character set will contain old-style figures, ligatures, alternates
-Modest language coverage
-Experiment with interpolation: extra light version will be more geometric, fat version will have a much more modulated stroke.
-Italics with a moderate 5° slope
(Sorry for the text sample, it's InDesign's optical kerning, which is too tight.)
