Analysing Type

Recommended Posts

Ken Morita

Can anyone help me anaylise the type PTF Nordic ( https://www.dafont.com/ptf-nordic.font ). I've been trying to be more in-depth and sophisticated when analysing but I'm pretty stuck on this one. Any help would be appreciated. 

Thank you

What do you mean by "analyse"? Do you mean describe? BTW, the /Q seems to have lost its tail; check the path direction.

In terms of its style and features, pretty much an audit. 
And I'm not too sure what happened to the Q.

Here are some keywords you can use describing PTF Nordic:

geometric, modular, template, round, minimal, sans-serif, monolinear, bold, oval, caps-only.

It's a stylistic choice, or an artistic licence, if you prefer: somewhat sacrificing recognizability in order to remain inside the constrains of the design (may they be practical or stylistic). In this case, the lack of descenders.

Thanks a lot, I see where you came from for the type having similar qualities as a stencil font
