This is the starting point for a project I'm running here on Fontstruct about collective development within type design. It is a part of my thesis project at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm, Sweden.
I am interested in trying to push Fontstruct's limitations and try to make the "best" font possible due to readability. I am producing a catalogue about Open Source thinking whitin design. I want this catalogue to use this typeface for all the text. Since Fontstruct has the possibility to "Clone" typefaces it would be a good place to collectively try to develope a typeface. And since Fontstruct has an Open Source approach it would be a good platform to try out an experiment like this!
You are welcome to join the project by cloning these sketches or make a new font. The goal is to make a typeface that will work good in longer texts. Name your submission "Open Text" and add your name or anything after to keep track of the different fonts in the project. Use the clone feature to develope other submissions to make this a collective thing! Publish your work even though it isn't a complete font set. Other people might get ideas from your work that will gain the quality of the project!
I have posted invitations to join this project at different forums/blogs. Read the invitation here: www.selectedworks.se/opentext
If you have any questions, please contact me at: email@example.com
Hope you will join the project!

This typeface was created using sketches from "Open Text", wich is a part of a project to develope as legible typefaces as possible (in print) using FontStruct. If you have ideas of improvements please clone this font or visit the link further down for information and more sketches to work with.
