Semi-Formal

Though not complete, is is my first usable font, since it's upper and lowercase, popular punctuation, and most of the French and Spanish accents. I see it as a very neat version of my hand-writing. It was inspired by Optima and Gabriola (for if I needed a second reference, or if I didn't like what Optima had, like the numbers). My goal was to create a compressed version of Optima except with embellishments and super high ascenders and cap-heights (I've got a thing for short x-heights). 

This was a very satisfying project, and we even got to make use of our new 3D printer at the school! Again, if you'd like to see my process, I've included a video.
