Vogue Sans by taejo Vogue Sans by taejo
I've always liked high-contrast sans-serif faces, so here's mine. I've been working on this font on and off since I finished Scarange, but I finally finished the capitals yesterday.

Please comment, and state your preference for small-caps or genuine lowercase letters.

Inspired Gaeul, Bodoni and (most of all) the Vogue title font.

Edit: I just downloaded the font and noticed you fixed the S, O and G. I still think the small curves (B, P, R) are a bit too thin though. 7 and 8 look odd. I like 4 though.

Anyway, it's a bit weird that your font is different from the image you uploaded. I would actually love to see a proper image with some more text set in the latest version of this font. Also feel free to submit to my Group Temple of Typefaces.

I haven't worked on this for ages -- I don't really like it. But at some point I might fix it up. Thanks for your suggestions.

Hmm I like small-caps, but you're not using small-caps here but smaller capitals. They should have the same weight as the capitals. If you do design small-caps, I think the x-height should be higher.

The S seems to be falling backwards a bit and the curves in O and G are thinner than the straight thick lines. I also don't like the N with that horizontal cut at the top.

hi, nice work on the font but, i have a question: what programs you use to make up your fonts. a combination of illustrator and like fontographer? or that is to say, a vector drawing program and some kind of 'fonting' program? and how long did it take?

I use FontForge. It's for linux, and it's free. It works, and better than Font Creator Pro (for Windows), the only other program I've used. There's no way I can afford macromedia and all that.

oh okay, so you draw it up all in the one program, awesome. and besides just 'cause you can't afford software doesn't mean you can't get it, haha.

Um, sorry for the double post but I have a quick question. I just tried this out and noticed that the capital letters look fine, but the lower case letters on't show up at all. Is that my computer screwing up?

Still looks great though other than that.

No. I hadn't finished the font when I wrote that - I just shrunk them in paint. Since you want it, I'll upload now.

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to rush you. Take as much time as you'd like.

Not at all, it's been sitting on my computer for weeks. The numbers still don't look so hot (actually I'm might have deleted them completely), but I'm not really working on it ATM.

Just one thing: you'll have to switch SmartQuotes on in your word processor, because it doesn't have straight quotes.

This looks very nice. I think the small caps are fine.

I'm normally not a big fan of small caps, but it works great with this font. Looking very good based on the preview picture, I just think the O looks too much like a zero and I'd try to make the middle part of the S a bit more diagonal and elegant. But I'll download the font and see how it really looks in practice.

Thanks for the input. This if still a WIP - I have done much improvement since the last update.

Yeah, I've been meaning to change the S but wasn't sure what to do with it. I don't think I'll change the O though - it is quite accurate (as a copy from the source).
