New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Since the first days of 2007 i decide to come back to the field of type.
I like to share the first font from my re-starting new effort to become a typedesigner.
Picara is a sanserif organic font, with local vernacular references, a little condensed proportions, dark color, roman humanist model(Jenson)and open counterforms.
I want to keep armonic rithm of vernacular letters, without distracting too much the attention of the reader. The propose for this font is to work from 7 to 12 pts, in magazines and books, with a family of the 4 classic weights: Roman, SmallCaps, Italic and Bold.
The end strokes follow a strong left-right "italic rithm" in the lowercases; Do you see the same in the uppercases?
There are some characteristics that i want to follow, for example, the monetary lowercase signs aligned to the x weight old style figure numbers.¿is this weird for commercial standard requirements?
More details to look at in this first complete version of the roman, in the character set attached in the pdf.
