Here's what not to do:
--Start an easy fontstruction to pretend you don't have time to do research assignment due last month
--Draw lowercase letters
--Change all letters to have slightly more personality
--Change all lowercase to match the uppercase
--Change all uppercase to match numbers
--Change one letter so that it makes better auto-ligature
--Change all letters to have less personality
At this point, who knows how much time has been sunk into doing this "easy" fs and what it started out as. And unoriginal to boot. Forget it. Next!
A font in the "Compass" group which I started a few years ago and not finished yet. Living in Western Europe I wanted a swingy-light-rounded looking font for "West" on the compass to celebrate the gentle hills and open spaces around my home in France.
