I've been working for a few months on this typeface. The original inspiration came from an hand-painted lettering that I saw in Paris suburbs, but it has changed a lot since as I redrew it many times.
It's basically a reversed contrast sans-serif, intended for display.
The name come from a french martial art called Savate (french kick-boxing).
By the way, I am a graphic designer from Paris, and I am learning type design on my own for some time, so this is mostly a learning project. I spend a lot of time on it, and now I think a reached a point where I could use an outside look.
Most of the work has been put on the regular, but I recently experimented with an italic.
