Going on with my version of Chancery Script for Creative Market. Now, when we have ‘o’ as a group of 2 strokes in Adobe Illustrator, it’s
easy to build ‘e’ and ‘c’ on the basis of the left ‘o’ stroke:
As you can see, I am trying to keep as many shared parts among my letters as possible, so that the end product is very consistent. The ooposite approach would be to arrange the the font from individually digitized letters without breaking them into parts. Then the end product would seem more ‘jazzy’, imperfect, more ‘hand made’. That is a popular trend, which, in my opinion, doesn’t fit the classics. You don’t want Chanel logo to look ‘rustic’ and ‘personal’ do you? And Chancery Coursive is a classic font, which has been around for centuries and I certainly don’t want it to look deliberately imprefect.
