Hello, TypeDrawers! Looking on feedback on a new typeface I’m working on; it’s based on my current logotype.
It’s a wide-set display didone. My design uses hairline serifs, and then flared shapes that flow from the hairline to construct letterforms that usually are defined by serifs, where a hairline serif would be too ill-defined. I’ve almost completed the uppercase, but am looking for critiques from this point. After completing this font, I’m going to draw a new master for a smaller print size and then interpolate for intermediate optical sizes.
Here is my newly modified logotype that I am expanding into a typeface, I added a curl to the /R/ leg, as well as tracked out my first name.My original logo is at the top of my website.
Does this hairline/flare construction make letters that are too disparate from each other?
I’m looking for solutions for /CEF/ using this language, and my /X/ is struggling.Also
what do you think of the name MM Flair for the family name? (I’m putting MM at the beginning of my typeface names for consistency in branding for my “foundry.”) Looking for suggestions there too. I know there are typefaces that have Flair as a name, but it seems like they are older faces or free typefaces that are poorly made.
PDF specimen attached, no kerning yet.
Thank you for your time!
