New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
My name is Mario and this is my first post in this great forum. Sorry for my english if I don't write correctly hehe.
I have a trouble designing my first Tamil script. Specifically with the character ஷ (Ssa). The typography I designing will be for wayfinding, and of course I want to be the most legible as possible. Searching in webs, I found three ways to draw this character, and my question is if one of them is more common, more correct, or more legible. I also could create an alternative character, but I prefer to know the best drawing for Ssa and then choose it as default.
I attach a jpg with my three versions of Ssa.
Thank you very much in advance!!!
