WORK IN PROGRESS

This time I did a attempt to make a typical contemporary super rounded geometric grotesque typeface.  Which is a very popular style for headline and display text. Although I tried to make a contemporary looking typeface, I kind of remained faithful to plain geometry. The design can be slightly compared with that of typefaces such as HAUS Sans, TT Norms and LL Circular (3 great commercial pro fonts that were made by some great other designers!)

============================

One of the most important rules for this was to have near perfect circular letterforms in both upper and lowercase. (So to pull this off propperly it required a large grid faux Bezier approach.) Everything else just enfolded along the way. The design (obviously) geometric grotesque, but also has a neo-grotesque feel as well. The almost quirky looking letter widths give this a very strong early 1900s feel.

While many letters mostly have even stroke widths, upclose you'll notice some stroke width variation is going on after all. This to bring more conttract into certain area's.

==========================

It's still a work that is heavily in devellopment, and only the basic character design is completed for now. Next time I will get into its functionality such as multi-language support.

I hope you like it so far

Cheers

BIG UPDATE: So much more work and love went into this today.

) Now features support for most Latin languages.

) Added ligatures, diacritics & more punctuations.

) Many letterforms have been refined and changed.

) Some kerning was applied as well (far from all).

A sample of the update in action! Also have I made it downloadable.

I do think uppercase S needs some extra refinement..

I hope you all like the rest of it,

Cheers

UPDATE: now also kerned for the great majority of it

Love the a in the first sampler. But the a you have now seems to 'echo' the roundness of other vowels better. The LC x and that tz ligature: very nice. Is there a code point for the tz ligature??

Comment by Aeolien 9th April 2019

@ Aeolien: Yes there actually is in the extended Latin D block U+A729

;)

@Sed4tives Thanks, it's a wonderfully quirky and (for me) unusual ligature, I'll be adding it to some of my more decorative fonts :)
