I’m trying to finish off an old project that I’ve been sporadically chipping away at for a while now. It’s a pretty simple geometric sans (sorry) that’s very much indebted to Johnston.
I’d like to think that I’m not too far off completing it: everything that I plan to include is drawn, and the metrics are all pretty much done.
As well as all general refinements needing done, a few specific issues that are on my to-do list:
• Can’t settle on /G design; can’t get the heavy master looking good
• Diacritics weak/boring? Too light in heavy master?
• /5 is ugly
• /2 and /2.osf are ugly
• Aperatures of /e /g /y.ss01 /5 are too tight in heavy master – but reluctant to stray too far from design of lighter weights
• /æ and /œ are too dark
Feedback on any aspect would be most welcome – thank you in advance.
I’ve attached a PDF with glyph charts for each of the masters – and a PDF with texts generated for all the languages available on the very useful JAF test text generation (http://justanotherfoundry.com/generator). If the text samples say anything offensive then blame Tim Ahrens; if there’s something witty in there then I take full credit.
