I always wanted to draw a fairly simple squarish didone like font. It’s called Questa and is still in progress. I will finish Calluna first btw :-)
Filed under In progress
Ooh I love seeing a didone like font with ligatures
Moins Didot, più Bodoni!
(Less Didot, more Bodoni!)
Looks good! The ligatures are great!
Recently, I was looking for a serif font with many ligatures (often one is missing). Your work may be what I want…
This looks great so far. I love all of your fonts. =D
Simply beautiful. Looking forward to be able to use it.
Also, I see that you have 2 alternatives here, I wonder if you are doing both.
ceci – Well spotted :-) Standard a, c and s will have half ball terminals. The full ball terminals will be available as (OT) stylistic alternatives.
Love the “sp” and “st” ligatures! Beatiful.
this is the a.k.a. squidot? :)
Felipe – Thanks!
MattiaC – Indeed :-) Questa was formerly known as Squidot (Square Didot).

Your ‘Q’ slays me.
This looks fantastic!
you maded me drool! :)))
Awesome guys! Thanks!
This is lovely work, please let me know when this font is ready for release, I would love to use it.
Thank you Simon.

Hey there! I just wanted to say, you are an amazing typographer. Your fonts are of astounding quality. I just purchased Museo 100 and Anivers Italic and I’m in love. I follow your fonts now with great anticipation!
I love your Fontin typeface after getting linked by a friend to your page and was wondering if I could get your permission to use it in my university newspaper which is currently looking at getting a redesigned logo (and possibly more, fingers crossed!). I know that you’ve stated that it is free for personal and commercial use but thought that it would be proper to ask you for permission first! Cheers, Mag x
p.s. I just have to say this – the rest of your work is FANTASTIC. Looking forward to seeing more!
Brendan Nice! Thank you!
Magz Sure, no problem. Thanks for asking & please keep me posted.
Thanks so much, will defo keep you posted, it’s a logo competition haha!
Если будете продолжать писать на эту тему, мне будет интересно посещать вас чаще :)
Magz – Good luck!
Yulia1988 – Please do :-)
this is looking beautiful! those ligatures are so elegant :)
Thanks Matthew. BTW You’ve got some very nice typographic designs on your Flickr page.
Looks beautiful, Jos! But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m really, really looking forward to your finishing Calluna.
Thanks Steve! Calluna will be the first thing I will finish. Working really hard.
This looks great! Keep up the good work! I look forward the release.
Your work is stunning!
i can’t wait to use it on my next album art design
Thanks, Joel… it will take a while befor it’s finished. I hope before the end of this year.

I like didone and i definitely (will) love this fresh-looking one!
I definitely felt in love with ‘Q’, ‘c’ and ‘a’ glyphs. Awesome.
