As non Latin type designer I was wondering where to start to Design Latin type face. When I found Hrant Papazian Module + similarities it was a lot of time saver . I have made an extension to Hrant’s Module + Similarities called Aleme’s tree.
I think it will
be helpful to have this kind of tree for all scripts .
John Hudson whom I respect a lot who Designed (Nyala Ethiopic ) among many type faces ,has this to say in one of his presentation .
“The first things are those that all type designers must know: the way in which shapes relate to one another; how their relative proportions and spacing contribute to the visual rhythm of text; how their weight, height and stroke modulation need to vary so that, optically, they appear balanced and aligned. “
What do you think ? What can be added or subtracted?
Thanks in advance, Aleme
