Online Resources?


Hello again,

Are there any online resources that deal with character shapes and tips on designing them? I'm looking for something similar to "Designing Type" by Karen Cheng and the tips presented in http://typographica.org/on-typography/making-geometric-type-work/ (optical corrections, balance, and so on).

Besides of the general knowledge I'll get by reading that kind of material, I'm hoping to find info to deal with a problem I'm facing: character "w" in small sizes looks black, heavy, like a dot in a sea of grey lines. I guess there should be some info around regarding this.


Sans serif with curly R and W

Hello typophiles,

Can someone please identify this font with curly R's and W's (amongst other letters)? My first example is from a design agency's logo. I'm thinking it was customized...I'm pretty sure my second example is a real font out there. Either way, I'm looking for a font that would have a curly R. Thin and bolder options would be nice.

Thank you!
