Hello folks, I'm happy to announce that a new typaface of mine is now released. Here follows the presentation. I hope you enjoy the font.
Hachura is an impressionist typeface designed by Ricardo Esteves Gomes. Its general proportions are based on the garalde models, with traditional roman serifs. It was initially made by hand using a drawing technique to create a font that simulates the unfinished aspect of a work in constant progress. This textured face is useful for display sizes, making a very visible presence. Because of its basic dimensions and careful distribution of black and white, it still also very readable in text sizes like 10 or 8 points.
