I’ve been working on this typeface with wood type feel. I wanted to have this late 1800s early 1900s look on it with a touch of contemporary design. I’ve classified it as a Sans but some letters are starting fall in to the Serif class.
I’ve worked on these two masters now but I haven’t decided how many weights the final typeface should have. Maybe three or max five. I want to keep this family quite small. I might do also Italics.
There is lot’s of work to do but I thought this could be the right moment to ask some advice and opinions.
I have a couple of questions:
Do you think that this is distinctive enough and worthwhile to finish?
Is there something you would like to fix or adjust on these letters (I’m sure there is plenty:) ?
Because the stems are so concave some letters are a bit problematic. For example /t and /s seems a bit light.
What do you think is there too much overshoot on the Black weight?
