New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Here's my experimental attempt at a mega heavy typeface. The influence, of course, is from the slab serifs of the wood type era. In the end, I see it at newspaper display size, tightly tracked to compensate for its more squarish proportions.
My main issue right now is the thinning of the S's spine. Not sure how to get away from that. Also the C and the G look abnormal. Can someone with an experienced typograph-eye give me a crit and/or some helpful advice?
Also, I'm not looking forward to shredding my brain for a lowercase set to match. Unless I get some inspiration. Can anyone also suggest some nice heavy typefaces for me to look at?
Maybe I should just go for small caps. Easier right?
