Firstly thanks for the advices that I've read on other threads last years, I learned a lot through it.
I am a young graphic designer with a strong interest in typography, I am always fascinated by the connotation, the tone of a type face rather than what's actually written. I had some basic calligraphy (small flat brush).
For two years now, I am working on a typeface as an exercise, I had nice and interesting feedback from coworkers, teachers and friends, but I changed shapes a lot as I could not find an pleasant style for me.
My own starting brief was to have a rational typeface, straight axis, but with some organic features, I liked some Century old style, Baskerville etc. But more in Times maybe Plantin proportion. For the contemporary designers I like Academica by Storm (Is it too obvious ?), Lido. But also Helvetius by Cortat.
Now I believe the feeling is good, I chose to have slightly slanted axis (but bdpq seems a bit weird), but not for the "o" (the shape always seems wrong). There is not so much contrast but I don't think it is a 6pt font...
A lot of letters are missing and it looks a very little work but before digging more I would like news eyes on it, as I cannot have any new feedback (construction, proportion, contrast, hints, anything), even laser print for proofing is miles away... Thanks a lot ! ("B" "D" "P" are very new sorry, I like big tittles, and tears drops are always the same everywhere)PDF for more
