Fantastic First runs?
Above is the first run at a character set for a critique on monday. There are a few characters that are embarrassingly unfinished, but there is still a lot of time, so no need to be a perfectionist just yet. The "r" to "s" relationship is quite sloppy at this point and the "e" is just eating up a lot of space. The "g" is a little wide and silly. The "t", looking at it now needs to be revisited yet again.
I am really loving how the "a" is moving along...and I think the "w" is nearly balanced which is sometimes a tough thing to work out. Overall there is a nice flow developing...it's just a matter of working out proportions and details which will obviously keep me busy for a while.
Nothing assuages the wounds of a rough week like fiddling with letterforms. Also, feel free to contribute ideas for font...be it names, adjustments, things you would like to see, etc.
Some things: Godspeed You Black Emperor!, midlake, junior boys, Feist, The National, wine and cold hands.
