My very first attempt of creating an own typeface during my practical course the last six months.
Published:
  MY VERY FIRST TYPEFACE
ACID JAZZ

(two thousand / twelve)

Acid Jazz currently consists of seven weights:
light & light italic | regular & regular italic | bold & bold italic | serif.

I created it during my six months practical training in an agency in Frankfurt a.M.
It was my first contact with FontLab and the whole subject of creating an own typeface
- what an exciting world of its own!
Have a look - and hopefully leave a comment - at my very first attempts!
Thank you!
 ... how the whole project started. Lots of inspiration, scribbles and - for sure - coffee!
 Shoulder to shoulder with FontLab.
lovely kerning ...
 Love to scribble on my test prints ;-) Here you can see some of the ligatures I created for my font. I also made some alternate glyphs, e.g. for ä, ü & ö.
 Let's start with the most uncommon weight of my font: Acid Jazz italic. It's 13 degrees slanted to the left. (13 is my lucky number ;-) )
 Some of the glyphs, which can be found in every weight of my font. E.g. common additional characters, fractures and old-style figures.

 Hello!
 self-explanatory.
 et voilà.
 Thank you  for having a look at my new project
 - which is not finished yet for sure.
