Dear forum members,
besides Terra Nova, I have started another Typeface out of an urge to do "something different".
After doing some pencil-drawings of some letters, I started working on "Sofa – a cosy typeface". It is kind of a humanist egyptienne with no (or almost no) sharp edges, slightly curved outlines, and flowing, handwritten flavour in the basic shapes.
Sofa won't be a "monster" like Terra Nova, I don't plan to do that much opentype-scripting, alternate forms, ligatures etc. as I've done so far there. At the moment, there is a basic character set with Upper- and Lowercase, numerals and some punctuation. Also, some basic spacing is done to test the font in text-sizes.
Do you have any suggestions or objections on the general concept, or (if you like it) on single glyphs?
Thanks a lot for your feedback and your help, I hope I can give some knowhow back later (after a lot more years of learning...)
