Lets Discuss

I really like the type. The only thing that sticks out is the bottom right part of /a/, it just doesn't work visually (geometrically it's probably curve-perfect).

made some changes to the bottom of the a. thanks epsilon.

Thanks tony, updated. the s was dead on the x height. made the other adjustments though.

Now /s/ is too short. The bottom curve needs to go below the baseline, the top curve - above the x-height. Have a look %3Ca href%3Dhttp://typographica.org/2010/on-typography/making-geometric-type-work/%3Ehere%3C/a%3E (%3C- click). Apologies if it's something you already know.

Nice! Agree with 2 previous comments about /S. An easy solution should be to simply flip it 180%B0 and so invert the two counters.

thanks thomas. how about the s?

JoePrince Sep. 03 '10

Do exactly what Thomas said...rotate it 180 degrees.

I did rotate it. I actually think anthony is right. It does look heavy on top now. I preferred the other one.

The S right now looks like it's slightly leaning backwards.

JoePrince Sep. 03 '10

It looks the same to me...are you sure you rotated it 180 degrees, James? Still seems to be the problem.

I also feel the letters are spaced too tight.

lumo Sep. 03 '10

joe, I may have rotated it before you saw it. I'll put them back to the way I had them originally.

Reply
lumo Sep. 03 '10

updated to original s. Also spaced more.

Reply
JoePrince Sep. 03 '10

It still needs to rotate like 5 degrees CW like Mike mentioned...

Better. I think you now just have to slightly reduce top counter by pulling up center and top middle part. Heve a look here to see what your /S should look like (http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/blair/).*I have also to agree with Mike about tracking. Tracking is slightly too tight for me too.

Now /o/ is too short and sits too high. Also, since you trimmed the stem of /a/, perhaps trim the left of /t/s crossbar?

I've made some adjustments to the type. How is it now?

Reply
lumo Sep. 06 '10

workin it now. I think the spine was too horizontal.

JoePrince Sep. 06 '10

%5EHmm...not sure what you mean by that, Tony. It looks fine now IMO. Nice updates James.

Man I really need to get off the 56k internet connection...
