My first entry for Serifcomp. Originally created in 2013, when I still had little knowledge about the finer details of type design. I've made major changes to the original design while trying not to lose its original feel (avoiding diagonal strokes, for example). I ended up making major changes to M, Q, T, W, f, k, m, q, r, t, and w, and minor changes to a bunch more; a ton of kerning was also required. It's not very polished yet, but it's a start...

Some alternates are available in Latin Extended A. As always, suggestions and critiques are welcome. Thanks and enjoy!


(sample coming soon)

Apologies for the super-late samples...

Thanks for your support, guys! Elmo, this was actually greatly inspired by your weztern fonts, so thanks for the inspiration :-)

A beautiful Western look enhanced and not shaken by unusual serifs. I like the original 'k' and the alternate 'x' Congratulations on the TP :)

Comment by Aeolien 15th december 2017

Thanks yet again, meek and Aeolien ;-) I thought I had already decided to use the alternate 'x' over the current one, but I guess I hadn't... Swapping them now.

Hey, great font. But when I downloaded it, I agreed to the Creative Commons Sharealike license, which does not match-up with the Creative Commons Attribution Sharealike license. 

Just sayin'.  Of course, I will attribute when I use it (probably before that), but @meek might want to have someone look into the license thing.
