Hey, this is my first attempt at designing a typeface. At this stage, I
>The 'A' -- the interior apex is too high (for my eyes) >The 'M' -- the join is to square and flat. I really don't mind the extended apex, but it probably would work better within the context of the other characters if the treatment were used in other glyph - like the cap M for instance. Changing the angle of the inner slopes of the M to match an inverted A shape might help bring the detail together. Nice start.
Hey cheers, yeah I
hmm, Mr Bluett I presume? ; ) Welcome my friend, your participation is long overdue! I'm not convinced about the squared "D", it is a little too symmetrical along the horizontal axis for my taste. The crossbar of your "H" is too high, and I would open up the bowl of the "P" for I find it too square and too small as it stands. Have you tried playing with the serifs, because they all look cut and pasted, a spot of variation wouldn't go amiss my good man. What did you think of the vega party? pretty good huh! sigh. no longer a student, just an unemployed designer!
Yeah, still very much in the early days. I
it's a raster pdf?
Sorry, will post again later.
Alright, try this.
Mmmm, that's getting very nice. The subtle cupping is a great detail. And the swooping R is lovely. Looks like you've managed to solve the weight distribution issues and the join in the M as well. Show us more please!
This is fun. Reminds me of Emigre's Fairplex and a bit of Font Bureau's Meyer Two. The 'A' -- the interior apex is too high (for my eyes) The 'M' -- the join is to square and flat. Nice color. I've been wanting a bolder version of Meyer Two.
Ashton. I'll agree with Grant, I love how much more dressed-up it is. More "painted lady" and less "ghost town". Your 'M' is much better. Could the serif coming out of the 'G' (top) be a little more convex, alluding to the larger convex shapes you now have? I also like the 'R', but would hope for an alternate version that isn't quite as swashy. And the sharp points might be better to have the a tiny flats. NIce!!
