  • sorry if i was ever an ******* to you
This is great work. I haven't compared to macros but it looks bang on. What was your process for creating these? Top-down photos then manual trace, or something else?

Yeah that's exactly it. I used the macro shots from the Deskthority wiki as reference.

Looks really nice! Are the lines in the "A" meant to be thinner than all the others? Or are they not actually thinner and it's just an optical illusion? It certainly looks thin compared to "X" for example.

What's wrong with just using Helvetica Rounded LT STD as Cherry does? Yeah, it get's some artifacts due to the double shot process but... not to this extent.

edit: great work however.. if you did it from scratch. I would just have made some minor modifications to the original font.

This is really fantastic. Do you plan on also adding the Cherry icons?

So for Tab, Caps Lock (Purse, Down Arrow), Shift, Enter, Backspace (2u and 1.5u -- no x-box please...), Numpad Enter, ISO Enter.

The idea of "open source" fonts was such a bizarre concept to me, but my brain fart moment was over.

This looks great.
