Using 2:1 (h:v) to achieve steeper angles.
Comment by aphoria 27th july 2009
Very clever. Actually, I've tried to make steep diagonals too, but your solution is much more elegant. It's worth 10p alone.
Comment by Frodo7 27th july 2009
Amen to that. Unlike mine, barely any of your glyphs look like they've been tortured into submission.
Comment by intaglio 28th july 2009
Thanks guys. While there is certainly room for improvement, I was pleasantly surprised at how the curves turned out. I was worried that not having the shallower angles would be a problem, but I think the curves are ok.
Comment by aphoria 28th july 2009
Interesting technique with very good results.

One idea for improvement: make connections between bowls and stems more consistent (now a g are different than b d p q).
Comment by gferreira_admin 28th july 2009
Good idea...I changed a, g, p, and q to be more like b and d.

I also changed the k, but it's still not so great.

And, the numbers need work...the 4 looks so anemic.

About the 4... good luck with that one. Probably the single most obstreperous glyph in the alphabet.
Comment by intaglio 30th july 2009
very nice execution and innovation. i like these fonts that "blend in." they don't call attention to themselves, but the effort behind them to make them look effortless - that's where skill and talent take over. well done.

@tag - i don't know, them k's can be some ornery critters :)
Comment by funk_king 30th july 2009
@intaglio lol...those 4's really get your goat, don't they?

@funk_king Thanks for noticing. These type of fonts do take a lot of work that is not too obvious at first glance.

When's it getting apink dot, I wonder. It's getting better all the time.
Comment by intaglio 31st july 2009
Thanks intaglio. Your approval is worth as much as a pink dot.
Comment by aphoria 31st july 2009
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Venus Sans” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by gferreira_admin 31st july 2009
You guys are making too much great stuff, it's hard to keep up with the pink dots! :-)
Comment by gferreira_admin 31st july 2009
Thanks for the Pink Dot!

Damn, what a coincidence. I picked Venus because it started with V and could show off the steep angles.

Maybe I will change it.

I'd like to second gferreira comments. The level of work here lately and the sheer volume of quality is staggering. Everyone is crushing it here this summer. I wish I had more time to write comment on everyones work. Keep it up.
Comment by afrojet 31st july 2009
Word to that. There has been a big run of really good stuff the last couple months.

I think the FS Collaboration 1 spurred our creativity.
