New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I did intend to post here before it was finished asking for comments and alike, but now it's done already.
For learning fontlab studio I took my favourite font DIN 1451 and added some ligatures. When the course entitled "Project work" came around I had already set my mind to either doing my own complete font, or modernizing DIN as far as time would allow me to. The course gave me 100 hours, but I likely put in closer to twice that.
I was wondering how one goes about modifying glyphs of the Amharic script to a specific distressed/display style, so it's still understandable to people reading it? I need to make an Ethiopian version of a custom designed latin logotype and would like the Amharic letterforms to retain the look.

A quick Amharic version:

Although I once had college-level schooling in fontography, my skills are time-blunted. Please help me to locate the name of the ascender-/descender-modified font in the logotype. I am thankful for any help you can give.
