Schlanke Schöne is a tall condensed geometric sans serif typeface.
The idea behind this font was to experiment with making interresting letterforms, with fewest possible resources. In other words, fewest possible default core bricks, no filters and mostly without expert mode. The only expert mode funtion I did use was "stack" bricks to make a small number of resized compositions and composite sloped angles. The total amount of different bricks used in the font is 20.
The font design is a simple, fairly straight forward looking sans, but due to this the end result also is pretty legible and clean. I was able to get most of the features done within the design parameters, such include optical correction, diacritics, stylistic alternates and swash capitals.
Very simple, but playful fun...
The stylistic alternates and swash capitals have been stored in the "Halfwidth and Fullwifth Forms" unicode block.
Hope you like it,
A modern hairline sans style font.
design grid: 3,5 × 4,5 units
brick size filter: 2 × 2
stroke weight: 1/8
I tried to incorporate rounded letter parts and corners but this was very tricky to pull off with this thin stoke weight. The font works best at small size due to very small imperfctions.
I hope you like it nonetheless!This is a clone
