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!

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.
