I know, it’s not a typeface, but I had a lot of fun doing this digital ‘pencil’ sketch with stylus and tablet…
I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of a Blackletter that is a) designed to beastly read; and b) an ‘all capitals’ face. Progress on this thought so far:
By the way, Kerning not attended too yet!
…and now with a provisional name, and Small Capitals.
Here are the initial stages of my design process for a new typeface. I thought these (very!) rough doodles might be of interest in showing just how ideas are crystallised. This idea for a display Roman with some areas simply not quite there – or an application of the oft quoted idea that areas of ‘white space’ add something to a piece of design work.
We’ll see how this unfolds… PJL
