All caps geometric gothic sans-serif project. Its a semi bold display design that looks a little like those early grotesque types.
The uppercase O has a distinctive circular shape and has a unusual 3x3 grid square dimension. A number of glyphs still need modifications to achieve better solutions. Also is the character set far from complete yet.
I hope you like it so far
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.

Modern geometric sans-serif design, This is a updated version of the previously published STF_PIPER ALPHA. This version includes support for lowercase and all the other charaters are double checked plus modified where needed.
Enjoy!This is a clone
Sort of a revival of the geometric letters seen on a 1916 Dutch litho to paper poster for Wm H. Müller & Co.'s Batavier-lijn passenger service Rotterdam-London. The Batavier Line was the oldest steam shipping line in the Netherlands. The line existed from 1830-1960.
The litho design was originally done by Bart van der Leck (1876 - 1958).
The fontstruction is a Faux Bezier approach, so the design grid was huge. Making it a lot of work and hard to ballance with the editors kerning feature.
I made a couple of small changes as compared to the original, most significant is the upscaled Ampersand.
I completed the alphabet plus numerals and some punctuations.
There are still a small number of spacing issues that needs to be solved.
More characters will follow soon.
I tried to recreate the Braun GmbH logo type and make it a full font, I used only the five letters in the logo as a reference. Since there are a bunch of revivals out there already. I just did my own interpretation of it.
