An attempt to recreate the lettering seen on a early 1900's poster ad for "Van Nelle" coffee.

The original classic poster ad. that I used

Comment by Sed4tives 8th May 2018

I wonder why is the vertical height so high? Nevertheless, another great recreation.

Comment by architaraz 9th May 2018

LOL yes me too, ive been looking for a brick that might got left behind pulling this apart but couldnt find any.. I might copy the glyphs into a new project soon to see if that helps.

Comment by Sed4tives 9th May 2018

@Anyone: Is it possible that the vertical height is ofset due to the use of awkward filter settings?

Comment by Sed4tives 9th May 2018

Nice rework. What filter settings do you have? Are the glyphs positioned on the baseline?

Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) 10th May 2018

@V. Sarela (Yautja): Thanks.

And yep, all the glyphs are positioned on the baseline, the grid ratio is 2:4 at 1:1 brick size.

Comment by Sed4tives 10th May 2018

Okay nevermind, I found out what the reason for the huge weird vertical spacing, indeed it's the grid ratio, cuz when I put it back in 1:1 the spacing changes back to nornal, but this is changing the vertical scaling of the glyphs as well..

Comment by Sed4tives 13th May 2018

I fixed the vertical spacing by putting filters to 0,5 : 1
