I need to provide a short description about my typeface for a publication (deadline: today!), and as I'm not sure about a detail, I need some advices from experimented type designers. Here's my text:
Chiavari is an elegant stencil which makes it a fashionable typeface for display uses, headlines and signage. Chiavari explores some particularities of both modern and renaissance typefaces, oscillating between a vertical and an oblique axis. It plays on the disappearance of the hairlines while geometric serifs and rectangular thin strokes give it a radical and modern twist.
I have a doubt about the axis theory, witch in my case is mostly vertical, but on all curves, I made a pen rotation, as you do when you wanna draw a oblique axis based typeface.
It would be awesome if you could sen me your thoughts.
