Good work.

I don't care for the horizontal line on the tail of the q.

I don't think the r should have serifs.

Great @ and &.

Why is the copyright c backwards?

Thanks! I've used it for the text in a book I made as a part of my BA diploma work... Here's two spreads about the typeface (really small unfortunately)

Nice work Aron - hope you received a good mark :)

The sample text is legible indeed. Nice work! The I,i,l,r are serifs, while the rest of the glyphs are sans. Why? I think, for the sake of consistency it would be better to develop two separate versions. Sans serifs are better for the computer screen, whereas serifs are more legible in print.


Is there any way to see your BA diploma work? I would be more than interested, even if it's written in Swedish.
Comment by Frodo7 19th February 2010
Well, it's a hint to monospaced fonts and typewriter fonts... I put serifs on the glyphs that are narrow in the form, so they take up more space thus are more visible...

My diploma work is in swedish, but since it's about Open Source I've put up all material from my work for download. You have a PDF of the book that you can have a look at and also another font plus the indesign file etc... Just visit this link and click the copyleft symbol (the zip is a bit big tho)

I will put up more images from my work at www.selectedworks.se soon
