Tempoline is a font created in my spare time. It’s a hybrid of sans serif, slab serif and monospace with a sense of flow and tempo created by its alternate ‘slab serifs’. Feel free to download the font and try it out for yourself.
Throughout the font creation I was constantly perfecting the basic Latin letters and numerals to create the best sense of balance and flow.
Then I went on to create the wide set of extended Latin glyphs to complete the whole font set. The final touch, which took the longest, was creating all the kerning rules which in some cases lead me back to iterating on some font letters.
The end result is a playful yet simplistic font which can be used in many different sets and contexts.
For me this was a great experience. I went through the whole long process of font creation and I enjoyed all the small visual challenges along the way. Feel free to download the font and try it out for yourself.
