Typeface design: Odessa regular, bold and condensed
Typography experimental design.
The goal of this project was to create a font in which the ascendants and descendants are aligned with the x- height. I achieved this by mixing upper and lower case letters and adjusting the proportion ratios.
The bold weight continued the proportion explorations and added a variant to emphasize the boldness; merging counter spaces.
The condensed weight is characterized by its extreme ratio proportions 2:8. I particularly enjoyed exploring this weight because the results can be very striking the more the characters are scaled.
