It's Summertime! You know what that means: no school and more time to work on stuff I love to do, like this! Just found out about this new feature and decided to make a quick font out of it!
I recently saw a type face with bits missing and thought "Looks interesting, can I do something with this idea?". I used one of my older sans designs but soon discovered that I needed serifs to get logic to the gaps ;) So I started work on a good serif design to use as the base. Here is my interpretation of what I saw, it looks rather different from the one that inspired me.
As the name suggests, I played around to create some classic Didone/Bodoni numbers. One day, I might also come to think of doing the rest of this typeface. ;-)
Apparently, it is quite easy to forget what gets a fontstruction going. Something about ultra condensed bla bla bla. The rest is just a matter of having a creative activity to occupy the mind. And if in the process you can help out a friend, all the better.
Instead of doing homework I tried to make a Ming-Blackletter-Fraktur-something bastard monstrosity. My imagination is bored and I don't think I'll ever finish this one so whatever why not publish it.
Inspired by Kitay.
Again, I'm publishing this although it is not finished yet. Seems to become a habit ;-) Anyway, the name of this font is the German word for temporal paradox and this should illustrate the fact that I started this typeface as a Times alternative. As you can see, however, it took a very different direction.
I will add more glyphs in the course of time.
