New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
As can be followed in earlier threads, I'm working on my type called Nordic. Now I'm sketching on the 'textversion'. It will propably not become a real text face, but it surely should feel like it.
Can you give me some good critique. Is this the right direction I'm going? This are some very early sketches where I'm trying to find out if the type work well in the light and the fat extremes. The weights inbetween then propably work as well.
I want the fat version to be rounder, like a blown up balloon. The more light the weight, the straighter the verticals. Makes sence?
This is the first time I'm doing a textface so all the tips are welcome. I feel I'm not good in keeping the type consistent in it's details.
See the difference in the light and the fat lc 's'. Would you like it with or without the spurs?
I'm not really sure how to handle the horizontals (a, e, g, s). Should they be much thinner than the verticals, as you can see above, or should they be 'equally' thick? That would make it more fat and I would loose a lot of details.
