A font that combines the geometric simplicity of the Bauhaus fonts with traditional italic forms and swash capitals.


You are well on the way to something quite special here.

Once again, a great font. A spectacular font, well deserving of a top pick. 10/10+fav

Thank you both very much!
@time.peace: I doubt that a font could become a TP when incomplete, and unfortunately I am quite busy this week (in contrast to last) and so that won't happen in a hurry.

Awesome font. Just as insight, the Q looks a little awkward, like its not fitting in with the rest of the font. Other than that, nice job!

Awesome! I would like to see it when finished...

One thing, I prefer wider spacing on each letter.

@h1k765: To be an italic Q, it needs to be in its current shape, but here I have slightly neglected it.. I will change the awkward angle of it and amend the curl somehow so that it looks less like a fancy 2.
@cablecomputer: I did condense the spacing a little. I have become infatuated recently by the immediacy of condensed spacing in advertising, and this has obviously clouded my judgement, as there are obviously different standards for spacing in italic fonts than in roman ones. Do you think I should increase left side bearings on letters like j, f and A? Does your point about spacing apply particularly to the uppercase?

I would like to say that I appreciate your constructive criticisms and endorse anyone else's with ideas about this font.

@Cohnisgone: Left side bearings? I haven't see any problem, seems okay.

And normally, a script or "semi-script" fonts like this don't use ALL CAPS when in action. So, it doesn't matter if spacing between uppercase letters looks a bit messy.

A thing that you should focus on is spacing between uppercase and lowercase letters; and it looks just okay in this case...

As with many of my fonts, I have realised that one of my chief mistakes with this one was to make the line too thin. Here it is in bold:

Thank you winty5. I've taken note and changed it. Do you think the like would be necessary for X?
