Details

Description:
A slab-serif stencil. Made on a relatively small grid - hence a couple of spacing issues - but I've never been one for faux curves.

Thanks for the kind words - maybe not the most creative entry, but I wanted to focus on practicality with this one. Also a sort of self-imposed challenge to make something with real curves, high legibility, some interesting (if only vaguely) idiosyncrasies, consistent bridge-widths, whilst keeping an even colour.

Some recent (barely perceptible) optical adjustments made on a number of letters for better overall spacing. New sample will follow.

I’ve been very impressed by this fontstruction from day one. So clean, and it includes a highly polished extended character set! The only character that doesn’t quite fit for me is M. Does it work better with steeper diagonal strokes?

Thanks Will - very kind words.

With regards the M, they've been steepened once already - as you may just about be able to tell by the difference in the sample. But I think you're right, they could do with being wedged in a little more. They look a little precariously balanced, in comparison to the rest of the family's rigidity.

I'm not entirely sure if the limitations of the grid permit an *ideal* angle, but I'll have a go.

Edit - they do, and it does.
