STF_FRONTAL BOSSING - A groovy bold and rounded Sans Serif typeface.


This is going to be my second entry in the "HeavyComp"



17 × 16 square grid units (incl. descends, overshoots, accents)
Filter: 2 × 2 brick size

The idea was to come up with a friendly chubby fella.

And for all I know I think I have done just that. In the end, it does seem to appear it came out with a slightly bigger forehead than the average (but, no love was lost here, we have come to learn to appreciate the misfits).
Despite its weight and slightly clumsy appearance this juicy Mr. Boogie still got dat funk, and can not wait for it to be the next saturday night.
Even so, when he for once isn't told to "Swing and Boogie" he still is nice to have hanging around. His friendly persona is only to be matched by the ever so nice soft curves. "No sharp edges to detect here".
I can only hope for that all of you come to appreciate him as well! ;-)

(Let's do this in another language as well)

The idea was to make a letterform that has a friendly looking design. I tried to achieve this by way of softening all hard convex corners with a smooth rounded curve. And by "all" I litteraly meant, even on all diagonals, accents, thin strokes and stroke tips (Nothing was left untouched).
For all the concave corners, so the negative space (white space) of the letters have multiple solutions depending on what is happening (does it curve, intersect and or wether a stroke continues or not)

The curves all have near hi-res looking (a couple of minute imperfections) but otherwise smooth surfaces, and there are multiple custom created ratios/transitions, such as:

1.5×1.5,   2.5×2.5,   2.5×3,   3×4  (+  The bullet is a 7×7 curcular dot)

I hope you like it,


(PS: Sample follows soon)
