Hi everybody, here is a display typeface (named Thecoa) that I've been working on since November 2021. As I first got interested in type design during a Typography course only about a year ago, this is by far the longest, most ambitious type project I've been on. I want to become a type designer. This typeface is that challenge I've set out for myself to learn and experiment more.
The overall mood for Thecoa is Fun & Friendly & Witty.
The references are Cooper Black, Decoy and Doyle. Along my process, I study these 3 types a lot.
So far, I have done:
(1) - All uppercase and lowercase (Medium Weight) - which comes in spacing string in my Proof attached below.
(2) - All 10 Proportional Lining Numbers
(3) - All Vietnamese diacritics
(4) - Demos for all fonts (6 Weights, 2 Styles)
(5) - All lowercase for Light Weight - which comes in spacing string in my Proof attached below.
I would love to receive your feedbacks and suggestions on my progress so far with Thecoa.
Thanks a lot in advance.
