The Humpty A

All right! Stop whatcha doin', cause I'm about to ruin the image and the style that ya used to. In a display typeface, if my A is of the humpty variety, what should I do with my Alpha, Lambda and Delta? Can they be humpty too? Extra points for rhyming.



  • I think they must stay somehow triangular to be understood as Lambda and Delta, maybe just round a bit the top corners, keep the bases angular with the slabs.

    I would say no, based on Parachute’s Bague Round. Panos Vassiliou breaks a lot of the “proper” conventions in his designs, but not here.

    Ray it looks like you'll have to keep those in the... digital underground.  :-Þ

    But I like Ofir's suggestion a lot.

  • I spent a month in Greece last summer, and I did see rounded Lambdas here and there (at first I mistook them for Pis). I don't recall seeing rounded Deltas, though.

    Rounded Lambdas look too much like Omegas.
