RECOLLECTUS :: TYPE DESIGN

 

WHY DID I DESIGN THIS TYPEFACE?

I always have had a hard time whenever I look for a good serif font that I can use it for my design.
I've ended up adjusting curves, tips, and kerning even if I find one that I like. 
So I thought to myself, why don't I design a serif typeface that I always can use without adjusting them.
Here is what I came up with. I named this typeface "Recollectus." which is a latin word has
meanings of recover, gather again, and collect.
I gathered my experiences of using serif fonts and collected problems that I have had, and I carefully
redesigned them in my own way.
