The original source as created by "Jurriaan Schrofer" that I used as referance to make the recap.

kinda like gta logo lol

Comment by JingYo 7th April 2018

I never took a good look at the GTA logo, but you're right it features some similarities.

Comment by Sed4tives 7th April 2018

May I suggest using a larger grid?

The lines are thinner in the original than they are in this...

Comment by Jack West 23rd April 2018

It's still a good remake, nonetheless.

Comment by Jack West 23rd April 2018

Yep u're right, I was aware of this from the start up, but decided to go ahead and just capture the basic concept of the design. Maybe some day I will do a more accurate retry.

Comment by Sed4tives 23rd April 2018

I actually made my own version of this alongside the Gamma!

It looks more accurate to the original than this (apologies Sed), and it has uppercase!

It's not connected, though

Comment by Jack West 27th April 2018

Haha nice one, it's alright. Nice to see I am inspiring others out here. If you need any inspiring source materials like the one's I've been using, just hit me up. I have so much I cant possibly fonstruct all of them.

Comment by Sed4tives 27th April 2018

Well, send me one.

When I get the chance, I'll see if I can take it down.

Comment by Jack West 27th April 2018

your Y has umlats on them, English doesn't use umlats mormally...

@Se7en: I know, but the original sketch by Jurriaan also has these, since it was a Dutch designer, and often his works featured this minor typically Dutch ligatures.

Comment by Sed4tives 27th April 2018

I have a silly question regarding the ij/IJ. I make them by placing i+j/I+J as I saw in Amsterdam (arena). But often people use yY with diaresis which doesn't usually look like a ligature. Which arrangement should I place, which is the correct one?

Comment by Aeolien 27th April 2018

ÿ is practically unheard of in normal Dutch language unless the word or name is borrowed from another language, such as French.

In Dutch language we officially only use -ij or -ei. Both as a digraph. (since the two sound exactly the same but are used very diferently)

But basically only in Dutch handwriting we sometimes make use of -ij as a single glyph.

In Dutch typed text it sometimes is used as ligature but this most likely only at a higher academic linguistic level.

The majority simply combines i+j to make -ij just like everybody else.

Comment by Sed4tives 28th April 2018

Thank you for clarifying that Sed4tives, I'll continue using i+j/I+J when I want to make a font specifically for northern European languages and/or I can make the combined ij/IJ look good or better than the individual glyphs side by side.

Comment by Aeolien 28th April 2018

After this conversation I decided to update the font to incorporate a extra glyph for -ij and remove the umlaut from y to make it more suitable for basic latin.

Comment by Sed4tives 28th April 2018

Good idea to set i+j/I+J on a different code point. Now people have the choice. I remember my grandmother writing any 'Y' with diaresis.
