Recently I started examining Nina Stössingers typeface Nordvest italic and I couldn't help but to fall in love. I notice things like in the n how she combines what looks like two styles into one so collaboratively, it made me question, why are there no combinations of italic and "normal" faces. I mean the way an italic slants and cursifies, am I just out for lunch ? I don't know — I just think it would look cool to take such unique features of italics and make them a little less fluid. I drew up an experiment and I'm sorry to Nina for this but I just wanted to see how it would look for reference. Get what I'm saying ? I also used Museo to show the effect but I don't think it works perhaps because it's not organic enough. I know that breaks the rules — just a thought.
