New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This is a concept I've had for a while, that I've only recently began to digitize. It started from the idea of an i, in which the principal stroke and the tittle form a diagonal slice. Here's my original freehand sketch:
I wanted to perhaps turn this idea into a legible gothic typeface with a high x-height, round, open letterforms, and ascenders/descenders/tittles with slanted, angular ends. Here it is digitized in Fontographer:
The lowercase letterforms:
At the moment, Thistle seems better suited for a display font (it could make an excellent logotype). It's surprisingly legible at smaller sizes (although much of the distinguishing slanted strokes and tittles become lost).
Any ideas guys?
what the font shows up as franklin gothic.. obviously not
