Silverback Typeface

Silverback is my first attempt at a multi-weight sans serif face. It won first place at the Punchcutters Exhibition held in late November. Co-sponsored by the Society of Typographic Arts and the Illinois Institute of Art – Chicago, the exhibition pulled in around a dozen submissions. Rick Valicenti and Linda Blackwell judged. Work on the Heavy/ Extra Bold weight of Silverback is progressing nicely (if not frantically). First pass at the Glyphs is done, with a ton of tweaks ahead. No spacing or kerning is really done yet, but that will come in time. This weight along with the regular will be used to interpolate the rest of the family.
