Curtis

Typography

Curtis is a typeface developed while creating my thesis on developing a typeface. Curtis was inspired by modern wedge serifs as well as embracing calligraphic undertones. With a tall x-height, Curtis is able to be legible at small point sizes making it an ideal choice for body copy.

Consisting of upper and lowercase characters, punctuation, and standard ligatures, Curtis’ process involved pencil sketches, vectorization in Adobe Illustrator, and finally integration into FontLab.

In addition to the characters, Curtis has also been kerned for optimal legibility. With over three hundred kerning pairs, Curtis is tuned and ready to work.
