I was working on a logo for an electric bicycle company and after drawing the few glyphs needed for the logo, I thought it would be interesting to flesh out the whole font. I was thinking that making the tops and bottoms of the glyphs line up horizontally with no overshoots would give the thing a lot of forward momentum. And I am hoping it might work well as a web font (for not real large copy blocks) since there will need to be very little hinting. I am liking it but it is still early in the design stage so it's a good time for a critique.

If you need 600 or 1200 dpi scans, it will take a month to get since book is in a library in another city. But I will get them if you need them.

Are there any fonts that use contextual alternates with chopped-off serifs, like the ones below, to prevent crashes and/or enhance "word images", and do you think it makes sense?

I'm doing something similar to my f + ascender combinations, but that seems more conventional than the r + x-line-serif combinations, at least I've seen it done before (and also discussed it with a couple of people), so I'm less uncertain about those.

I'm pretty excited about these, but would love some second eyes/opinions before I take this too far (it obviously is a pretty expandable concept :-) ).

Dunno – are these too "designy"? (Maybe specifically the "rt"?)

Oh, and please excuse the still somewhat wobbly spacing, I'm in the middle of fixing it.

Hey all,

Working on my first typeface for school. Its supposed to be a display face and we pretty much have freedom to do whatever we want in terms of design approach. I had a crazy idea of mixing Helvetica Neue with Adobe Casslon - Since I've always wanted a serif that's close to Neue (after working on it I realize how crazy this sounds).

Anyhow I've continued working on it and have a very rough version of the lower case, perhaps you could guide me in the right direction. I know the last five letters don't match at all (v,w,x,y,z).

Also have a rough version of the uppercase but not in Fontlab yet.

Thanks very much :-)

Dear all,
does anybody know the font used for the word "BUCCANEER"?

At a first glance it resembles Bookman Old Style but the R looks different.

Thank you in advance

Thanks in advance for help

I'm hoping for a hardcore crit before I go any further with this face. It is intended for for books and like material, and constructed to look best between 6.5 and 14 points. There is no uppercase or punctuation yet. Don't pull your punches.
Thanks.

It's the title and heading typeface throughout the 2009 book Bauhaus: Living Art.

Notice the round a and the situational usage of serifs.

Here is Novena, a serif family (still in progress) initially aimed to newspapers requirement though, in addition, I’m developing a display version too.
Feel free to criticize.

Thank you.
