started as a handmade lettering logotype designed for "Peter Röijer"
vintage perfume brand. Started now as a titling serif typeface. The main idea is create unconventional uppercase groups as similar as close to the personalized oldstyle lettering design do.
As a first step, I started with uppercase only, doing two models on each glyph, in letter one go into UC-box and other into the lc-box, as you can see the 1st couple 'R' below here.
The lower lobe of boths /B have different contrast angle to all other rounds /P /R etc...
Oh thank you Dave.. I think soft transition works better now.
Craig Eliason good idea... I sketch something near to that model... and see that's looks interesting I think the 2nd 'y' one look more legible to me than 3rd 'y' (at least to our americas culture).
And by the way, I add a new alternative for 'J'
Thank all you guys for your eyes on this.
The /ẞ looks quite swashy for a base letter. I'd trim away the fiddly bits for the base version and maybe semi-detach the top for the swash version.
Agree on that.. the middle link looks better, and make a traditional 'Z' and make accessible this alt via Stylistic Set.
I think a better option could be if a regular 'I' with that tilde above it appear instead of that alternate one.
If you want to see how is looking the complete font family you can visit my store at MyFonts: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/peggo/roijer/
Even so, I will post the complete graphic stuff on the corresponding threat here on TD.
Love the slashed OS zero! :-)
Thank you Rafaeiro.. I really enjoy to discover new ways to solve every part of this project, it really was so fun.
On next part of this project may be do many of this kind of creative solutions and many more new ones too, like same extension on "R, K, Q" and may be an alternative extended "L" I need to sketch to decide new features for this typeface design, I will take note from your suggestion.
I have planned to extend this to a wider family with lowercase and try an italic, I'm not sure what could it be but this is just the first step of a bigger project indeed.
Thank you Simon.
