Unnamed hybrid font - WIP - need feedback

Forums: 

This is the first real font I've ever designed and this is my project for my diploma. It's planned as a font for headlines and sub-headlines in a culture magazine (It doesn't necessarily have to work under 14p). I know that it has small serifs, but I decided to post it into the sans-serif forum nonetheless since I don't really know where to post it otherwise. It's not a serif font because there are only serifs at the bottom and not on every glyph.

I can't present much, I've just done the lower cases, but I hope that I'm going to get some useful feedback here in what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong.

Designing a font family with layerable weights. What am I getting myself into?

Forums: 

I'm designing a typeface family with three optical sizes (36pt, 72pt, and 144pt) and a few layerable weights per each optical size. I've been experimenting with how I can make each weight line up when layered on top of each other and I'm starting to pull my hair out.

I thought having the same width and left/right sidebearing info would be enough, but that's not the case. Since the weights aren't the same width (I have a regular weight and a 3D weight, for example), having the same metric info results in them not lining up.

ID: Times New Roman like Font, different C and E

Trying to identify this typeface. Originally considered it as a possibility for Times New Roman, but the "E" and "C" are distinctly different. The rest of the letters are so close to Times New Roman though, so I was wondering if it's possibly a variant of.

Is Euclid inspired by Dessau?

Having a conversation on twitter.

This morning I was having a conversation with the foundry Swiss Typefaces (@swisstypefaces). They are in the process of designing a typeface called Euclid.

I responded asking them if it was inspired by the Dessau series of typefaces.

They responded “no.”

I was particularly interested in the similarities between the [&] and [a] in Dessau Pro Zukunft.

I’ll let you decide:
