Kautiva is not unicase

Ale Paul's picture

Sometimes I feel like I need a font that works in this way. Not exactly a unicase but still a font that let me play in big display words ... or better you can call it pure trendy, stilysh, etc...
I began with a few letters and I think that now I m almost satisfied with the result. That is why i put my font here, because you will destroy my illusions :-)))
Seriously, the idea is to complete a set with some more weights.
Please feel free to help me to finish the work.
I know that some forms (Hrant pointed me) are more humanistics than the others but I m trying to equilibrate the situation and maybe it results in a strange mix way.
Sorry for my poor english.

make 2 or 3 fonts was is still an alternative but at first I want to be sure of this letterforms.

Following Coles comments I added some changes and the set is 3 fonts for now (regular, small caps and a mixed one). Planning to ad a heavy and a light weight.

Please comments will be apreciate

Uh, is are the curves unsmooth or is that just my flash plugin?
I find it very good, Alejandro. It just needs to be fine-tuned in the details, as far as I'm concerned. The mix of influences is well balanced and it gives a very lively appearance. I'd balance the lowercase s and add lowercase numerals, then re-check all the metrics, that's what comes to my mind, but in general it seems to work very good.

thanks Claudio. Yes! flash generated from illustrator killed the curves. Metrics were not done yet :-)

Ale - You're right, it's not unicase. What it looks like to me
is a lowercase and small caps. Add an uppercase a bit larger
than the small caps and you have 2 full fonts. ;)
