Dear Everybody Who Loves Font,
This is my first - quite serious - attempt to draw a font family.
Basic concept was/is to draw a Thin and Black weights and blend
and carefully review all the weights in between.
Now I like this - and would be glad to have any critique.
P.S.: Numerals look still something ugly for me - I'm working on it.
P.S.2.: Italic is mainly oblique for now - except 'f' and 'f-ligas' - but
a few glyphs are planned to be redrawn.
Happy to announce my first "family".
This is a tall, slim monospaced dekor font, a fun, a spin-off of a previous experiment.
This was also the first quite serious project of my (foundry) to achieve a system.
More info at my (also new) site.
Hope you will like it.
I would like to get some professional feedback. I've started drawing a didone-like
alphabet, taking Bodoni, Didot and a few similar font - and using my imagination and eye at least.
First of all this is meant to be a self-training project - and I like well-crafted Didone-s too so try to achieve something like that :)
It is a very early stage - the very basic letterforms are still tweaked here and there, but I like its slightly condensed look. Small caps and text figures are added using some automated effects and hand-tweaking the results of these.
I've tried to letterspace only the lowercase so far but the first result was a too tight look when text set and way too far wordspaces. First print test showed it too clearly.
