Venceremos is my first crack at a wedge-serif (latin) font. It more or less follows the models set by Stephenson Blake
David one more time congratulations to the work. I like very must the expression of each part of each caracter which is very expressive. In Portuguese language the name "venceremos" it means "we will win" funny. I don´t have critics to say I agree with your options and is a very good work. Best regards David. Ricardo
An ascending old-style "2"! :-) I like Venceremos (both the design and its provenance), and the only thing that caught my eye is the "g": maybe make the ear stronger? hhp
Any word on the Release of DTD Venceremos at Myfonts.com? DTD Venceremos is a very interesting type face. Yours truly, Robert
Are you going ressurect every old thread just to ask that? It's kind of trollish.
Stephen: Nice catch. I served as the first art director of "Venceremos," which is indeed still being published as a quarterly tabloid directed at the "Latina/o & Chicana/o" community here in Salt Lake City. I was told by its editors that "Venceremos" is a spanish phrase that translates roughly as, "We shall overcome." It struck me as a great name for a font, although the publication has yet to utilize it. ;) That looks like good advice on the uc "R", too. I'll play with it & post the developments. David Thometz
Very nice! It's hard to be sure from the sample, but it looks like the UC is a little light compared to the lc, or vice versa. Any chance of a text setting?
I may be the only one to catch the "Venceremos" reference. 12 page tabloid activist quarterly, David? Another nice one. Perhaps the leg of the upper 'R' needs a sight shift too the right. I really dig the funky stress angle and its affect on the caps. Stephen
