I was trying to make a very narrow font that doesn't look just like a set of parallel sticks when used. I was inspired by Raranga by Aeolien, Log Beach by elw123 and Ladedan by zephram.
A typeface inspired by American typefaces from the 1800s and the Art Deco-styled coffee shop I visit often in Des Moines, Iowa.
Combining a slab-serif, expanded typeface with ornate detailing brought challenging consideration to the legibility of the font. It’s used best for short, bold messages or an energetic initial cap.
