High Contrast Serif for Flag

Forums: 

Hi everyone!

I'm currently working on some type design for a flag for my thesis show. Both the sans and serif are bespoke. The high contrast serif was very loosely based on Times New Roman and infused with the Didone theme. While comments on any of the characters would be greatly appreciated, I am struggling with the numeral nine. Can it deviate from the vertical axis, reflecting Times? Or, should it conform to the vertical axis? (Both nines are preliminary as well as the metrics.)

Thanks so much!

Hunting for a high contrast serif headline font to debut with the redesign of well established high end Fine Art magazine.

Well established, high end, nationally distributed Fine Art magazine is undergoing a redesign asap (to be started now and completed in days maybe weeks but not months) Sorry for not just telling you my name and what magazine I am redesigning now but I am not at liberty to "publicly disclose" this info but send me an email and I will inform you of everting by email or phone (hurray for technicalities). Of course, you can just look at the art section of any Barnes and Noble newsstand or google high end Fine Art magazine if your in a country that may not have in on the newsstand and figure it out.

Hello all--
I've got an in-progress here that needs your eyes. It's based on a hastily designed logo for a paper sculpture artist that I thought had some potential as a full set of letters. It's a bit of a mash-up of different elements but here's the main points I want: display face, high contrast, flared serifs and abrupt wedge serifs, large x-height, and some other thin, swashy elements and unconventional forms are ok with me since I envision it being used at large sizes. I'd also like to make light and ultra weights too.
