I recently saw a type face with bits missing and thought "Looks interesting, can I do something with this idea?". I used one of my older sans designs but soon discovered that I needed serifs to get logic to the gaps ;) So I started work on a good serif design to use as the base. Here is my interpretation of what I saw, it looks rather different from the one that inspired me. Alternative X on the x.
As the name suggests, I played around to create some classic Didone/Bodoni numbers. One day, I might also come to think of doing the rest of this typeface. ;-)
Apparently, it is quite easy to forget what gets a fontstruction going. Something about ultra condensed bla bla bla. The rest is just a matter of having a creative activity to occupy the mind. And if in the process you can help out a friend, all the better.
Instead of doing homework I tried to make a Ming-Blackletter-Fraktur-something bastard monstrosity. My imagination is bored and I don't think I'll ever finish this one so whatever why not publish it.
Inspired by Kitay.
Again, I'm publishing this although it is not finished yet. Seems to become a habit ;-) Anyway, the name of this font is the German word for temporal paradox and this should illustrate the fact that I started this typeface as a Times alternative. As you can see, however, it took a very different direction.
I will add more glyphs in the course of time.
The tilted exclamation point is dedicated to Yahoo! (RIP in pieces and let your degenerate algorithm rot in hell. Also, your choice of colors is lousy.) It doesn't measure to nine degrees.
Alternate glyphs are stored in Latin Ext-B.
