New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I would love a critique of the typeface I'm developing for my honours project this year. The two fonts below are the display cuts in an extra-bold and light weight. It's going to be used as part of an identity system for an artist-run initiative in Melbourne. Previously they were using Reader for headlines and Parry Grotesque for body copy. The naivety and clunkiness of early British grotesques was the formal starting point.
This is my first proper foray in to type design and I've yet to go through kerning pairs so forgive any awkward combinations. Love to hear your impressions, criticism, suggestions.
I am graphic design student and have set my self the task of designing a typeface over the summer break.
I started off from some sketches but had no real goal other than to produce a typeface and learn how to use fontlab in the process.
Anyway I'd like to know what you think and would appreciate any guidance.
