>Hello Typophile members and curious people,
This is my first attempt on a serious Serif Typeface for print and i decided to design the complete characters on paper scketches first. Drawing by hand let me redesing any detail with more natural control, and i supose that is the better way of begin any font.
The idea is to break the monotony of the curves with a straight internal edges, all trying to keep an organic feeling of many structure constants of the Azteca & Maya geomerical art forms.
Btw i want to publish the entire process since this firt sketch, so i need your suggestions on the estetic feeling that i want to keep, and the tecnical legibility changes that i have to add with your comments.
Many of the characters are under construction so i will apreciate a lot if you can help me to decide why some characters works better on tecnical and estetic ways.
Feel free to add any suggestion, critique or comment,
