New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Well, I'm new here so maybe I should introduce myself.
My name's Filip Łysyszyn and I'm young (typo)graphic designer wanna-be from Warsaw, Poland. I'm not a design/art student (I study english philology).
I've recently started working on a new typeface that I hope to be my first "serious" one. However, I'm still very unexperienced and I really would appreciate professionals help (that means you, guys).
So, let's get it on:
The typeface name is July, probably because I started it in July.
It's meant to be a roman type with rather big aperture, small contrast and strong but short sherifs.
These weird acutes you see are a polish diacritics "kreska". These strange accents in "a" and "e" are again polish diacritics called "ogonek". The "l" with a diagonal line in the middle is a polish letter "ł" (lslash).
I haven't put it in a font file yet, because some glyphs need corrections - that's why I can't show it in a paragraph here.
Work In Progress Specimen:
http://lysyszyn.pl/projects/specimen02.png - lowercase
http://lysyszyn.pl/projects/specimen03.png - uppercase
http://lysyszyn.pl/projects/specimen04.png - small caps
http://lysyszyn.pl/projects/specimen05.png - ligatures
Again, I would appreciate any help and critique!
PS. If I violated any rule of etiquete around here, please forgive and let me know.
