An attempt to make a very readable sans similar to what you would see on streetsigns, utilizing larger curves than the average FontStruction. Uses 3x3 curves on the uppercase and 2.5x2.5 on the lowercase/numbers. A few alternates in Latin Extended-A. As always, suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks and enjoy!

Congratulations on the TP:) These elegant shapes with plenty of white space are so easy to read, perfect. I love the ß; and (sigh) long s which I use in handwriting. The spur on the ß says that you know about that ;)

Brillant sans!

How did you do the curves??

Comment by anonymous-1466233 24th October 2017

"fs straßenschild" looks very schön.

:-) Thanks, everyone. I've decided to make this clonable as well for anyone who wants to take a look at the curves.

@Aeolien: Even though I know virtually no German and basically never use ß or ſ, I do have enough experience with type design to know how to shape these characters well ;) The ß is also one of my favorites; I think I mastered the way the curves switch back and forth down better than I ever have before.

Hi. I am making my own fonts and I was just wondering what category/language does the st ligature (st) fall into?

Comment by BlueSpikez 8th November 2017

Good question, BlueSpikez. I don't think it's available in the default language set; you'll have to turn on Expert Mode, go to Menu > Advanced and turn on Unicode Letter Sets, and then scroll down to the bottom of the language set and select "Alphabetic Presentation Forms." It's in there with a bunch of f-ligatures and some Armenian and Hebrew ligatures.
