Freitag — toying around with a geometric display sans



  • The "Q" is disrupting the texture from afar.

    I actually moved the /Q_u ligatures to DLIG in the Text cut but forgot that the CALT feature still cycles in the long-tailed versions. I've added a custom parameter to the Text instances now that overwrites CALT to remove the /Q dynamics. The long Q is still available as Q.swsh.
  • Just to go back to the ascender+descender=upm. That is a recommendation and no technical requirement. I never saw a problem with a font that didn't follow it.

    Somehow I like the Medium two-storey /a less than the Hairline and the Black. Any idea what the problem could be? I've tinkered on it quite a bit, but I haven't figured it out yet.

  • I would say the middle bar extends too far to the left, especially on top, but it's a hunch.
  • I guess the binocular «a»'s natural non-geometriness is being exposed.
  • i find that Q anachronistic. Cute tho
  • Finally relaxed the midstroke of that two-storey /a a bit. I held on to that horizontal piece for too long.

    I'm also exporting a new font style: Quinoa Text SC, offering small-caps to go along with the diagonals of Quinoa Text.
