STF_DAMAGE INC. - Tech inspired condensed geometric sans.

=============================================
It’s a modern rigid square-based geometric sans that was designed to work especially well in body style text. It was carefuly crafted to be a spacious but continuous fill.
The squarish geometry provides a slight mechanical looking, yet clean and very open basic design.

Each glyph was further constructed with more than enough negative space (white space), making sure any text will look brightly lit and feels well ventilated at all times. This is especially welcoming when having to read large chunks of body text.

The uppercase character set was constructed somewhat of a fraction disproportionally taller compared to the  more naturaly proportioned lowercase character set. This to make any line of text that is set in 'all-caps' to bring the impression of being condensed.
This effect is then exaggerated even more by slightly pulling back on the extent of any ascenders and descenders on the lowercase characters.

=============================================

I am pretty pleased with the result, it's overall look is fairly consistent and legible. The condensed effect allows squeezing a good decent amount of horizontal text per one single line of type.

The only thing kind of dissapointing to me was it's smallest possible point size in digital display use. It doesn't do well bellow 20px (14.5pt) in digital format.
20px is the absolute smallest size for everything to look crisp and alligned with the pixel raster, going bellow this point and the font starts to become blurry and distorted.

I wonder what any of u type wizards think so far...

Cheers

The basic concept for that last sample image was pretty much copied from Frodo.. I''m pretty sure he doesn't mind !

B-)

@Sed4tives: It was not my idea. You may see very similar demo pics on MyFonts.com and elsewhere. It is an effective way to communicate Latin Extended-A support. Well done.

Comment by Frodo7 13th july 2022

Very like! Thinking about adding Cyrillic to this font? The wider Ф, which is in Cyrillic, is already done correctly and I think it should also be used in Greek.

Comment by Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff) 15th july 2022

@Dmitriy: Thanks mate. Yes, Cyrillic is also planned. This will be up next after I completed the Greek set.

Comment by Sed4tives 15th july 2022

For capital greek letters with tonos, I put the tonos to the left of the letter with the top at the height of the letter.

Oh, thanks, fixed ?

Comment by Sed4tives 1st september 2022

[Update] Now support for 103 languages.

Comment by Sed4tives 12th september 2022

Good Cyrillic. But the letter к does not have to bend the upper part, and ж usually does not differ so much from it.

Comment by Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff) 6th november 2022

also г looks very strange, usually it does not bend as much as б. I'm also not sure that a descender is needed for letters based on г in extended Cyrillic
