New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
So, here follows my first modest attempt at creating a face, and my first post here as well.
This first part of rambling concerns the "display" version:
What I initially had in mind was indeed a very dark 'grotesk' (yes I'm danish which is quite close to germany). And it was supposed to have been a display face including only capitals. As I progressed I felt it perhaps could be more and started working on lowercase as well. It is not to be seen as complete, rather very much in progress.
The lowercase alphabet caused me a lot of troubble, and right now I can't seem to get on with it, so please critique would be nice.
Now the "text" version:
As I was doing the lowercase, I decided to progress it into a more human sans, and see wether that was possible. The result you see here is very much not finished, but indeed this is the face which I am in most need of critique and pointers.
I hope you'll help out, -Thomas
(By the way, the reason the lowercase 'g' is red, is that I am not quite sure wheter to do a single story or this..)
