It's been nearly a year since I started messing around with type design and finally come up to start making my first typeface, and my masterpiece, and took Bodoni as inspiration to it. I'm making something that looks elegant and suitable for use in both heading and body text. Also, something that is comfortable to read (on paper) at 10-14pt, but usually at 12pt, in a long series of texts, such as in novels. I also made this to be a bit sloppy, because Bodoni seem to be too systematic for me.
I'm still completing the punctuations on this roman, as well as frequently tweaking some glyphs that I found a little faulty. I think I should start designing the Italic?
I've done a lot of research on letter forms and put it into practice before I made this attempt, because the first one is quite a disaster. I'm really serious about type design and I'm working really hard. I hope to become a professional type designer someday, so... yeah... It would be really great to have your feedback guys!
Comments and suggestions are much appreciated.
