clean sans serif typeface with technical look, built with high readability and wide usability in mind... so not a really creative font, but i somehow like it anyway.:P Update: extended latin A is complete now... Take a look at the stencil version and the slab serif version (my current favorite) as well!

I'm a fan of the genre and you've got a real winner here. Really nice work with the 'V, W, X, Y' series. And the lowercase 'k' is a great touch.

Very nice. I'm smitten by your @.

Hey, it doesn't have to be over-the-top to be creative. Very nice choices.
Comment by intaglio 3rd may 2009
@intaglio Amen.

@shastaConsidering your goals of "high readability and wide usability", I think you've achieved them very nicely.
Comment by aphoria 3rd may 2009
thanks for your comments! i appreciate it...:)
so far this has probably been the fontstruction i've used the most often. it works pretty well as a stylish technical font for clean designs.

here's a little sample of the slab serif version i'm working on... comments and critics are welcome!
(i'm not very happy with the capital A... looks a bit stupid like that. any suggestions?

(and yep, i think i make some progress with my samples... the one above is pretty disgusting, i'll change that soon.;))

edit: the slab serif version is out now...

Ooh, very nice.
Comment by aphoria 4th june 2009
Wow, completely believable on the slab front. I'm smitten.

currently working on a light version... maybe i'll release this in 3 or 5 different weights.

It's beautiful. I love the e, in both weights.
Comment by aphoria 31st july 2009
The Ultra Light version is out now... Not exactly the same as the preview in my last post here, but better. ;)
I also renamed this from Exempla Sans Strict to Exempla Sans Medium, as I hope to make a complete family out of this. Here's what I have so far:
