Tip over…

Tomi from Suomi's picture

Hello-

I've re-drawn the Italics, and started testing the weights with lower case glyphs. I try not to over-do the diagonal stress, so it'd work through the weights with fairly egual strength, even though in thin weights there is only so much one can do. That is why tried to damp the heavier weights.


and italics:

I now try to attach pdf's:

Apparently you should not preview your post…

Nicely done. Still think that 'g' is tipping too must to the left.

Thanks, Stephen-

Now we'we come to an area of objectivity, I think. I like the way it's tipping to the left. Bringing it back would turn the font too average. For me a thing to conteplate is 'k': should I keep it as is, or make a vertical connection?

Any thoughts on italics?

I like the quotes being mirrored, not 6/9.

Thanks, Hrant-

I stole that from Zuzana Licko, and have been using that style for some ten years now, even though it's a nuisance in italics, when you have to re-draw them, instead of just turning them over.

FYI, ATF was doing that almost a century ago.
And Carter did that it in the old MS core fonts.
