I tried out some new ideas with this font. I like how spikey it turned out by using the thin curved blocks :)
This is the first font that I've ever kerned, and kerned correctly. I've painstakingly made sure that every letter combination relevent to my font in English are absolutely perfect. I hope you all enjoy using this font. Happy typing! :D
IMPORTANT: If you want to experience the kerning of my font in a program, please use one that supports it, like GIMP for example (I use it).
NOTE: This font is now OFFICALLY complete, kerning and all. Please DO NOT request any kerning as I am no longer updating this font, thank you.
Extrapolation of the lettering found on a 1976 calender by Wim Crouwel.
I know this has already been done before, here is one that was done by Wilson Thomas. Who did a far more extensivey version that also includes extended Latin. Check his version out here: https://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/795855/kalendar_1976
Apart from a couple of glyphs that were done notably different and some other tiny differences in detais the two are pretty similar, but most certainly not copied.
Extrapolation of the lettering found on a Dutch renovation brochure. I have no clue if it is a existing font or not. I only used the letters from the brochure as guide and did zero research on it's origin.
At first I started to struct the lettering seen on the book cover of:
"Tot elkaar veroordeeld 'De Nederlands-Duitse economische betrekking' (tussen 1945-1957)"by Martijn Lak.
But doing a little more research it turned out to be the 1988 geometric typeface "Senator" originally designed by Zuzana Licko.
I took the liberty of making sort of a replica.
I made a couple of small changes here and there trying to improve its overall look.
"Big Friendly Giant"
I created this typeface around the theme of gregarious, focusing on gregarious plants. I started with drawing the letterforms in ink using a rolled up leaf. The results were twig-like marks which reminded me of the illustrations from 'A Monster Calls' so I developed the letters thinking how they could work alongside this or another story. The name 'This Wild Earth' is taken from the book and I think reflects the scratchy and bold feel of the typeface.
