My first entry for Serifcomp. Originally created in 2013, when I still had little knowledge about the finer details of type design. I've made major changes to the original design while trying not to lose its original feel (avoiding diagonal strokes, for example). I ended up making major changes to M, Q, T, W, f, k, m, q, r, t, and w, and minor changes to a bunch more; a ton of kerning was also required. It's not very polished yet, but it's a start...
Some alternates are available in Latin Extended A. As always, suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks and enjoy!
A typeface inspired by American typefaces from the 1800s and the Art Deco-styled coffee shop I visit often in Des Moines, Iowa.
Combining a slab-serif, expanded typeface with ornate detailing brought challenging consideration to the legibility of the font. It’s used best for short, bold messages or an energetic initial cap.
