New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hello all! I am new to this forum and maybe I guess it's a bit ugly to go straight on to announce a project I am working on. But I hope you might think this is interesting and therefore can forgive me :) It is an iOS app called Font Drafts, designed to boost the font sketching process and I am currently looking for beta testers. If anyone of you are interested, please sign up at the website: http://fontdrafts.com
This seems like a great forum by the way, so I think I might hang around a bit more :)
*I went through The Anatomy Of Type and selected some, then got this.
This is the rough draft of a font. Which /g/, /k/, and /&/ do you like the most? Does the /y/ fit? And what should the tittles on the /i/ be?
Fortunately I finally had the time to continue my first efforts in the conception of a spurless geometric sans.
Any comments would be appreciated! :)
This beeing my first post:
I'm an architecture student and this is the first time I'm really dealing with typography. It's only a very basic draft supposed to show the characteristics of a font I want to create myself, as I can't seem to finde anything comparable that tries this fusion of geometric structure and "contemporary" spurless details.
If you know any existing font with these features, please tell me - there has to be one somewhere.
Anyway, please feel free to tell me, wether you think this is a project I should push further or if it is completely hopeless - architects tend to think they can do everything on their own and end up in a massive mess.
