Custom type for innovatis. Did a few touchups on it.
Nice, man :)
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.
yah, I'm aware. thanks anyways - interesting link. How does it look now?
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?
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.
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.
joe, I may have rotated it before you saw it. I'll put them back to the way I had them originally.
updated to original s. Also spaced more.
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?
workin it now. I think the spine was too horizontal.
%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...
