+++work in progress+++ The hardest one was "z" until i saw theres a cool solution made out of "a" :D However this in NOT inspired by 60ies, i was more thinking about Tattoo Art, or some kind of a slashing Samurai thingy... Thats maybe why i changed the name from "Dark Matter" to "Dark Shogun"


Very wow! Very promising! Very 60s!

I can imagine the z is hard but have you tried doing it with descender? This might fit to the rest. You know like a blackletter z.

Looking forward to seeing the uppercase.

A very effective lowercase - can't wait to see what you do with the UC.

WOW! This is gonna be a winner. Great balance and style. There are some really brilliant shapes, and it's got usability stamped all over it. 10/10

I'm with the guys. BTW, you could joint the right arms of v and w in an only piece with the rest of the glyph. About the z, I send you another point of view to make it.

Lower case is looking very good! Excellent suggestion for z.

Hey Folks! Thank you so far, i'm on it :) Thank you elmo as well, but i dont think your suggestion works for me. It's quite good but i think, but it's not close enough to the "rules" of the font. As you can see in e.g. "i", i'm trying to give the FS a feel of being drawn by a quill or pen with the form of a diacritical mark called Acute accent. Your design kind of "doubles" the stroke at the ends of "z"... I did some exeptional changes from the "rules" in "a" and "z", but that was only cause it looked so cool :) i think i will stay to this "z"...for now. My new sorrow is "x" :P
Comment by kix 11th july 2014
Yay. I just found out you dont need a ligature for "tt"... just take "H" :D
Plus: I changed "v" and "w". The older versions are still cool, so i keep em anywhere in the font. "t"'s stroke fitted to "H"

OK, compañero. Please, look at some lost brick on C and c.

Nicht schlecht Herr Specht !

Congratulations on the top pick. I really like it, though I would opt for elmoyenique's z. 10/10 + fav, nevertheless.

said in the nicest possible way. :)

Really cool. E/F/J are quite unusual though.
Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 22nd july 2014
Well done so far! It looks as if it could have been made by Blambot. Please finish the Basic Latin range!
Comment by jimhv 26th july 2014
Amazing! Love the design, looks like it was made on a different editor!
