RECOLLECTUS :: FONT DESIGN

 

WHY DID I DESIGN THIS TYPEFACE?

I experience difficulty for most of times in finding a good serif font that 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 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.
