This is my first typeface made in Fontstruct and it is a part of my degree. The theme of the project is “Rebirth”. With this Fontstruction I am trying to revamp some of the typefaces being used for headlines and drop caps in books or newspaper. I am aiming for a more boxy and modern look, by some separations in the structure of the letters. My main inspiration came from sci-fi books and encyclopedias.
This is still a work in progress. I'm pushing the new bricks, stacking and nudging to the limit to create some nice flowing shapes. This is also a great opportunity to get working with some good kerning. Once I have the basic character set, this is going to be submitted to Google Fonts for approval.

Silly me, of course I'm not going to be able to preview the typographer's quotes because my qwertyset isn't primed to receive them. They should work in a program (i.e. InDesign) that's geared up for them.
