My Font Experiment

Kris SansSo, If you don’t know this about me, I really enjoy typography. So with that being said, I wanted to make a simple font, with a straight line and a circle. Thats it. Rules were that I could rotate the line any degree however I could only crop the line and circle at 90 degree angles, the only rule i bent was to slightly increase the x height of the lowercase o, apparently your eye plays tricks on you if you don’t. So here is my complete lowercase set for what I am calling Kris Sans. Simple like my name, no frills and my first attempt at creating a font. Surprisingly, this took a lot longer than I thought it would. I can see how people get lost in the little details of a letter on the micro level.
