"What if you create a font made out of all fonts installed on your computer?"

Die Durchschnittsschrift

During the creation of this project I took all the fonts I had installed on my computer and marched them into one. The goal was to learn the basics of font design and to create a fully functioning set of glyphs. During the development phase I had to make some changes. 
The final result is a fully universal font. This looks as something well-known and regular. By this reason it was named "The Seen Font".

To understand the construction of the letters I firstly focused on letters with primal shapes. These are: circle, line, triangular and square. This form cloud shows some useful info about the most common proportions and weights. 

After defining sizes and proportions I could start with the first glyphs.
