Sugar & Vinegar Font
Sugar & Vinegar is an old-fashioned font, with a “handmade” warm touch, avoiding geometric shapes and sharp corners, created with a fluid, personal and expressive line, not relying on grids or very strict guidelines. To conclude, my intention was to create a happy font with a hint to classics and styles that illustrates La Belle Époque.
The inspiration for this font was initially a single question mark but it has evolved a lot since. The first version I am pleased to release is finished after eight month and I hope the use of the font will well worth it.
The font includes a large variation of alternates, some of which can be enabled as an open type feature if it’s not generated by default. Switching regular numbers into roman numerals is just one of the special open type features included in this font, besides the automated decimal highlights, the ordinal indicators or the fractions (the decimal number underlines are meant basically for price displays, inspired by old seven elevens). Open type fonts has two of my passions, design and coding, but like any software, the font is also “open” to bugs, so if anything is out of place, a bug report is always welcomed. Just let me know.
Every work of mine is in everlasting progress, but so far the font has the Extended-A and Extended-B glyphs, with most of the IPA Extensions and other characters in case someone needs these. If not, the special characters are always available to be included as alternatives for regular letters. A little sugar in the design, if you will. Or vinegar.
