Paramithi: R and K edits

I was told before leaving Cooper that my capitals were too formal when paired with the lowercase. Since the lowercase has the effect that I wanted, I am rethinking the caps. The R and K needed the most help anyway so I started with them. I’m also evaluating the thickness of the serifs on my lowercase as compared to the upper.

Today is the last day! I fly out of NYC tomorrow. It’s been a great learning experience, and while I might be ‘finished’ here, I’ve still got a lot of work to do on my typefaces! I’ll still post my progress from time to time, because I know everyone is anxiously awaiting the design of my ampersand. And the back slash! Ha!

I’m now having to test my font in InDesign, to see how it works at different sizes. I’ve been killing a lot of trees, printing out test after test just like this. (Click on it to make it bigger)

Capitals! I might have a couple extra that the user could switch between…or I might not. We’ll see.
