I just registered to the message board,
I am selftaught and have been designing type for about 5 years, recently started a new project "lineal"
obviously nothing shockingly new here,
but i do like exploring the familiar and see what can be changed,
what are the things i dislike in previous/existing designs, what are the problems and how are they solved.
i would like to get some feedback on what i have here so far.
i have 3 masters at this point, i began with the "regular" did a quick light version, and then did a extrapolation to get a bold that i adjusted just a little so far. so the bold shows more flaws than the other weights. i find that the thinner lineweights often hide errors in lineweight consistancies, obviously the extrapolation brings out that messiness…
as far as origin goes, i suppose we are looking at helvetica, akzidenz grotesque, san francisco and the likes.
i have designed several sans serifs before but avoided this particular design space so far.
you can argue its originality. but im curious what my interpretation turns out to be.
