RECOLLECTUS :: FONT DESIGN

 

WHY DID I DESIGN THIS TYPEFACE?

I experience difficulty for most of the time in finding a good serif font which I can use for my work.
I've always ended up adjusting curves, tips, and kerning even if I find one that I (almost) like. 
So I decided to design a serif typeface that I can always use without adjusting them.
Here is what I came up with. I named this typeface "Recollectus." which is a latin word has the meanings of recover, gather again, and collect. I gathered my experience of using serif fonts and collected problems that I have had, and then I carefully redesigned them in my own way.
