Hi Santiago, Nice "G", Maybe you can add this "open" feeling to other characters. I am thinking about open that "Q", the idea is to make a rithm with this straight breaking angle. MH
A new sample.
Hi I'd reconsider the G, it looks great in a type sample, but it would make the font a lot less usable. Jim ==================== http://www.unionfonts.com
Santiago - i'd politely disagree with Jim. Keep the G (you could always find an open slot for a regular G). The G is actually a selling point if you decide to sell the font. Find some alternatives to some of the other vanilla glyphs and maybe you'll have a nice alternative to Trade Gothic or Alternate Gothic. bj
The G is terrible. I'd go further: the G is not a G. It is not, as drawn, a letter of the Latin script. The revised Q, on the other hand, looks very good.
Santiago: Sorry pero no me gusta la "G"... (BTW... A ver si nos tomamos unas birras antes de que me vaya). Abrazo.
To be rude, what is the objective of this new font? Seems so boring and close to existing fonts. G feature is the only originality, but as described by John, not really suitable for such typeface. The question you need to ask yourself: How to implement funny things as this G, in a way it give more interest to this typeface, whithout destructing the legibility? If its just an exercice, its ok.
So JF, what do you think of Keith's "Arrival"? hhp
Hrant, what's the point of your question?
Eduardo: thanks to ask! :-)
I'm wondering if I'm failing to see a certain originality in Arrival that spares it from being called "boring". (I'm not talking about techinical issues - where Arrival seems superior to Grillo - although to be fair the latter is still in development.) > thanks to ask! I answered my question - now it's your turn! :-) -- BTW, Santiago, your lc spacing is too tight. hhp
Thanks for the feedback all of you. Development of this typeface is now truncated for a good while because I
>> The G is terrible. I'd go further: the G is not a G. It is not, as drawn, a letter of the Latin script. Point taken. I guess I have a soft spot for underdogs and black sheep. Any reasonable third person would read the glyph as a G... I'm not saying set continuous text using the G, but for display, have some fun. Variety is the spice of type for some of us. bravo! to Santiago for his "terrible" G. bj
