Can some of you please share your thoughts on this big condensed type family I’m designing? I’m calling Albireo Slab. Good, bad, okay, do this, do that, wouldn’t use it in a million years, anything at all. I’m just looking for feedback of any kind.
I’ve been working on it for several weeks now. The upright Roman glyphs are finished (except for hinting, tweaks and some kerning pair adjustments (haven’t started on the italics yet). It’s gotten to the point where I’ve lost some objectivity about it.
It’s basically the slab serif version of a sans-serif type family I completed late last summer called Albireo, which is on FontSpring and MyFonts if you’d like to compare. (Not trying to advertise — just providing background for a critique)
I have some reservations about the slab serif version, but I’d rather hear your critiques first.
