I frequented the Typophile equivalent of this board a good few years back and always found it helpful. I’ve drawn my fair share of amateur letters since (primarily for logomarks or identity projects) and thought I might try posting some work again, absorb feedback and hopefully improve! I’d love to (at some point) be in the position to release my own faces but there doesn't seem to be a clear roadmap showing what to learn and at what point in the process. At the moment I’m making typefaces for my own use on client work as part of my design practice.
Anyway, it’s been a horrible rainy weekend here in Dublin so for some escapism I delved into designing a script hairline for fun and hopefully to learn more about Glyphs too. It’s a display face but am thinking of doing a variety of weights or perhaps one thin and one thick. I know there are plenty of similar faces out there like Klimax, Marian and Line so I’m curious if others feel this is too close to those or whether it can be pushed to have a life of its own.
Any and all feedback, thoughts or advice appreciated.
