New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
They say an author sometimes gets taken over by his characters and they, rather than he, decide the outcome of the story. I felt a bit like that having designed (or begun the design) of Pagoda (see attached sample) which I intended to have a solidly mechanical feel. I began with the lower case c which looked rather like the head of a spanner, and laboured on from there. Pagoda, however, had other ideas and decided to reinvent itself as something decidedly delicate and oriental! In the end I gave in played the part of the oily rag to the engineer! Anyone else have a similar experience?
