By request, for Frodo7. :)
This works so well in bold ... you really get maximum value from those delightful curves.
Looks marvelous. M,N,W are superb. The same applies to the punctuation marks. Impeccable design. I'd love to see an even heavier version, but by looking at some lc letters (e,s,w) and it is quite clear that this is the maximum. Congratulations. 10/10
Thanks p2pnut and Frodo7. I can do a heavier version, but I will need to increase the grid.
Maybe after a little break, I'll take a shot at it.
very compelling. the additional weigh adds a certain intensity to the passion :)
Because the link between two characters is more pronounced in this version, I would love to see all horizontal strokes to end abruptly so the chances of two letters seemingly merge into one is more emphasized. What I mean to say is, maybe have an alt. E with the top and bottom bars not bent in so when E and N are written next to each other, N looks like a continuation of E. &c. I'm not explaining it very well, but you understand though, right?
With what I do understand in thalamic's comment, I have to disagree. I think it would be very hard to read this font if the suggestion was followed. Perhaps the M and N could connect, but not the E. And some of the lowercase letters, like s and o, make it almost impossible to do such a thing.
Though, I do like this font.
Oh I agree, aaaalllleeeexxxx. It will make it harder to read. But so much cooler as well. And we all give way to cool sooner or later. After all, the world is turning Mac/OSX, right? ;-)
Do mean something like this? Or, do you mean they should actually touch?
See Solemn Bold Alt.
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
