Contemporary geometric gothic typeface.

The idea was to make a typeface design that would suit small point size body style typography.

The fontstruction is a faux Bezier style approach, this allowed me the most freedom in shaping the different letterforms and curves. Capital height is 36 bricks height.

Font sample is best viewed at 2x pixel size or above for a sharp result.

I hope you like it!

Another update made to this today!

Many new characters and symbols added

Adjusted many letterforms to make them look slightly better

Kerning applied to most pairs (not completed the full font yet)

But its definitely decent enough now to make it downloadable,

I hope y'all like it. :)

And a little bit of the fontstruction under the hood again, in the bottom left of the image is the ring diacritic and to the right is the Ogonek.

Awesome. The last few samples (especially the ligatures) make me think of flying buttresses and cathedral walls. Will we see a font that can be used to reconstruct Notre Dame someday? :D

It seems something is wrong when generating a TTF. Some of the kerning values that were applied doesn't seem to transfer to the generated TTF file.

Comment by Sed4tives Wed, 5th June

So far I can verify the problem exists for the following characters.
F f L l R r T t

There might be more characters that are affected but I haven't found them yet. And somehow only the kerning value for the right side adjacent pairs of the character are missing/not applied. The left sides adjacent pairs all seem to function as should and still have their kerning value applied.

But, even stranger is, when I view the kerning settings in FontLab Studio, the value's do appear to be present and included in metrics table of the font. But no text editor or design software is applying this to the actual font when I use it!
