WIP

A condensed neoclassical "Didone" serif typeface.

I have completed only the basic font so far, and there is only the bare minimum of kerning applied for now. More character, accent and symbols follow soon.

I hope you like it so far!

Excellent work! The 4 just looks a tad too wide and sharp compared to other characters, and the "a" within @ could be thicker.

Comment by V. Sarela (Yautja) Mon, 10th June

Hey thanks Sarela!

You're right, there are a couple of characters that still need some slight modifications to get them to look better and fitting the rest. 4 is certainly one of those. But maintaining the proper stoke widths as well as translating them to the required angle at the same time proved to be very tricky for some glyphs. Therefor better solutions remain pending for now until I figured it. It remains undownloadable as well untill I feel confident about it to be right!

:)

(EDIT:)

I am pretty sure I solved "4" now. :)

Thanks blu!!

Actually I'am finally having the end of it in sight, after several days of excesive kerning and various other background work. I think I have done roughly about 50.000/60.000 pairs so far.

Lovely condensed serif font with an admirable character set. Tons of work, and careful tinkering with custom bricks. Kudos for the outline views. Question: Why do you exhaust yourself with 50-60 000 kerning pairs in Fontstruct? There are better ways to do kerning, even for perfectionists. Look for kerning groups or kerning classes in Glyphs or FontLab, respectively. Saves a lot of time. Great work. 10/10

Nice font! Oh, be careful about creating too many kern pairs… You should limit the number of pairs to 65,535…

Comment by Qwerty399 Sat, 15th June

@Frodo: First of all thanks for your kind words!  I know there are much more efficient ways for doing this, I am a FontLab studio user as well. The thing for me is that I want my works to look good here at Fontstruct as well. And usually I do just the most important pairs to provide at least good looking font preview modes on the website. This time it seriously got out of hand and I got dragged away by my own obsesive drive for perfection. I can most certainly tell this was a first, and most definitely the last as well.

The joy I nomally find in Fontstructing dropped far bellow zero on this font.
