Looking for any feedback / critique from this fine community
For this one, I have initially drawn inspiration from square / squircle typefaces like Eurostile
, but also drawing from a technical 'Rotring pen' look found in typefaces like Tekton
(mostly evident in the /i/ /l/ and /h/) - to add a bit of character and interest & go beyond the regular rounded terminal look.
Since then I've been tuning the weight (intended to be regular) and fixing up some clogging where the bowls join etc.
I also introduced a very subtle vertical rise to add a little bit of movement / rhythm to the type, about 2.5° or so on the horizontals. Hopefully it isn't too distracting, but it's intended to give the design some lift.
I'm thinking of pitching it for headline / display use with a scientific or technological purpose, like titling for a presentation or a conference maybe.
