I wanted to use the nudge feature on my Manuale typeface and soon discovered that I had to start all over again. Here's Manuale Neue Bold!

This font combines the aestethics of Fraktur and Roman typefaces. It is also (now fully) stencil. But you would need a strong material for the schabelons, as most counters only have one opening. // The name "Düpbøl" is the combination of the German and Danish names of the same town in Southern Jutland ("Düppel" and "Dybbøl" respectively).
While recreating/revising one of my very first fontstructions – April 2008’s Asgard (second to last one) – I realized it was going to take something more drastic still than switching to 2x2 filter settings to realize my dream of a harmonized U&lc set.
The original’s lowercase had several compelling and unique features (at the time), the uppercase worked well enough in all caps display settings...but they very rarely sat comfortably together. The answer couldn’t have been more simple: since the caps (which surprisingly came first...or does this just reveal my noobishness at the time?) are rather narrow, the lowercase itself needed to follow a more logically elongated model.
Here the flexibility of 2x2 filters kicks into high gear as the original design’s lc is tweaked by half a brick extra height to bring about a more righteously rockin’ family.
(Asgard 1.x plateaued at 829 characters, so – as always – more to come...)
