Semiserif semispur minimalism.


This design uses a few novel glyph-shapes and techniques to achieve its look. Most notable of these is the serifed a which lets the serif protrude to the right. I avoid this feature in almost all designs, especially pixel fonts, because it adds an unnecessary 1px of spacing - but for this font, the feature can be included without changing anything for the worse. Many other glyphs have this same sort of protruding serif/spur, and the slanted geometry of the serifs/spurs affords them a look that "retreats" from neighboring glyphs, rather than seeming to protrude into them.

Wow mate, I like it a lot. Clean and solid design. I dont think its very minimalistic at all by the way, even tho some glyphs were designed following this principle, it clever and modern in appearance, Insta favo, 10/10

Cheers Sed4tives! It started as a doodle like most of my other fonts. I have taken to drawing "m" first in a design, and wanted a novel way to do the spur, so I simply had it extend out with the slanted end. This one change led to the development of several new techniques for glyph-building and spacing which were realized in the finished font.
