The task for this project was to create a digital typeface using Fontstruct. From a selection of themes, I chose energy.
Piquant was designed on strong emphasis of an attractive, sharp and energetic structure. Inspired by the modern typeface of late 18th century, boasting characteristics of stroke contrast, abrupt serifs, vertical axis, horizontal stress and small aperture. I have incorporated and manipulated these features into my typographic font along with a unique appearance of flowing characters that portray an energetic flux. Piquant exhibits bold lively curvature, sharp serifs and stimulating edge to an empowered lowercase character set. The font is to be used in larger sizes in plenty of white space, with generous leading and tracking to ultimately lend a striking visual quality.

This typeface is defined by its bold, black triangles found in every character. It has high contrast through the use of thick and thin strokes. The thin strokes help create an outlined, but transparent shadow that gives it a stenciled/carved look. Shadow Point is a decorative typeface, best used for headlines and expressive text. It is not recommended for body text.

Hey, Fonstruct!!! I'm back!! (at least for a while)
Oh, man, it's been a loooong time... I'm a real fonstructholic, after all.
Well, this is dilior, a crazy mix between didot and melior. It has some sort of mechanical feeling that I love. Sadly, I don't think I'll have the chance to complete the uppercase soon,... sorry. But, hey!, this is promising!
If anyone knows what to do with s and z, please let me know! =). Anyways, this is still developing, so any comment/suggestion/critique/whatever would be gladly received.
I missed you guys.
