Hi, I'm designing greek for the first time and I would be grateful if someone could help me with the shapes.
This is a multipurpose sans with a wide range of weights. I'm working with three masters (the ones I show on the samples)
Could anyone assist me on this?
thank you very much in advance.
(no kern on greek yet)
attached to the post is a PDF file with the sample as instructed on the forum guidelines
I'd also suggest that you reconsider the shapes of the small beta and small delta. For the beta, I'd try to make the cusp sharper (that is, bring its two arms closer sooner, so that each bowl looks more even rather than skewed up or down). For the delta, the upper left quarter of the bowl, where it meets the tail, might look better if it was pulled inside a little.
I also think there could be more consistency in the central strokes of phi and psi. In particular, the centre stroke of psi is much too dominant.
In general, you don’t have to make the parts of Greek letters that extend beyond the x-height conform to one “ascender” and one “descender” position.
omega is too narrow in the light weight, although OK in the bold.
Then, I'd allow for more leeway in terms of stroke width in the heavy weight - just look how large the counters in /beta appear in comparison with /phi. It might be worth adjusting the counters to medial, of course not the same, sizes.
