New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I would like to get some professional feedback. I've started drawing a didone-like
alphabet, taking Bodoni, Didot and a few similar font - and using my imagination and eye at least.
First of all this is meant to be a self-training project - and I like well-crafted Didone-s too so try to achieve something like that :)
It is a very early stage - the very basic letterforms are still tweaked here and there, but I like its slightly condensed look. Small caps and text figures are added using some automated effects and hand-tweaking the results of these.
I've tried to letterspace only the lowercase so far but the first result was a too tight look when text set and way too far wordspaces. First print test showed it too clearly.
Now it would be great to get some professional feedback and any c&c regarding this project.
Thanks a lot in advance!
P.S.: Sorry for the not-so-good English.
